Ok, ok I am really sorry that it has taken me sooo long to update. I hurt my ankle at work so I find myself with a little extra time on my hands. My local GW is running a Mordheim champain and they are allowing me to try out the experimental Ogre kingdoms warband. Here are a few of my Heroes.

In the Mordheim your warband is lead by a Maneater. The sword will either represent a great weapon or a caithian long sword. As for the short bow, that is his brace of handguns. This is 1 of 3 that will be used in a Warhammer Fantasy scale battle.

My pictures do not to a great job at showing the detail I have put into this model. The brown stuff on his shoulders are layered beaten copper armour plates. The same style beaten copper is also lining the chain mail on his helmet.

This especially portly Ogre is my Butcher. I went the economical route and converted my Butcher out of the plastic Ogre Bulls. He is modelled with his BANGSTICK!!! Which is most constructed from brass rod and green stuff, topping it off with St. Celestine's Halo... thanks Scooter. Yes it is a bit silly and way over sized, I still think it works.

Well before I prime these models and put them on the painting table, let me know what you think. Stayed tuned for a few painted Bulls and converted Ironguts to come.

Mongolian Ogres Part 2.5

We are just going to consider this post Part 2.5 because it's allllll knoblars. I have been working on these few guys since I started. Sculpting their hats are a great use for my leftover green stuff. I have not converted or sculpted a hat on each one but...they are knoblars...2 points.

Again, I promise that I will clean my camera for the next post.

Mongolian Ogres Part 2

Hey, back again. Here are a few more Ogres that I have just finished. With this group of 3 I tried doing the greenstuff assembly line style. Over all it was much faster but each layer seemed to take forever. On the brightside it allowed me to get the layers to a science so now I don't even have to think about.

I have been sculpting away so I have 3 Iron guts, a Battle Standard Bearer, and a Butcher on the way.

Mongolian Ogres Part 1

So a few months ago I got a bug for Ogres. I knew I wanted them to be a bit different than the stock models. My original two ideas were either a Sigmarite Cult themed army with knoblars as flagellants and the Ogres as witch hunters or, a Mongolian themed army utilizing rhinox cavalry. After playing 1 game with a unit of rhinox it was an easy decision to make.

This is the first Mongolian style Ogre I've attempted. As you can see I have magnetized the hands so that I can switch between the ironfist and additional hand weapon. I have also added layers of green stuff to give him more leather, fur and his rad Mongolian hat.

I am going with the Mountain Eater tribe for the army. In my mind they fit best with harsh climate and stubborn nature of these Ogres. This is why I have shaved off the rivets and sculpted the mountain on the gut plate.

These next two got the same treatment. Other than the green stuff these models are pretty stock. Here is what they are looking like as a small unit. Forgive these pictures, I did not realize my camera lens was that dirty.

This green stuff process is taking a bit longer than I had expected but then again I am pretty rusty. Let me know what you think.
