Statues, large rocks, and battlefield debris all work well as unit fillers. Depending on the theme of your army, you could also have a mini war altar or something in the middle of the unit-- something that eats up the footprint of eight or ten guys.

Any of the Fantasy plastic building kits have a wealth of ready-made statues, like the Chapel or the Garden of Morr. You could even just mount normal models on a wide enough dowel, and pint the whole thing as a statue...

Casualties at the back of the regiment, disassembled/wrecked cannon, priests blessing soldiers, a paymaster/pay chest, regimental mascot (gw does a model for this), ogres as you said, fortifications/emplacements, supplies/casks of powder.
