Added some colors to the chainmail and some of the lower sides of the iron pieces on Kagunk's armor and then washed it with the Warpaint (Army Painter) Zombie Shader.  I chose this over the strong tone... at least at first, because the strong tone can make it really dark really fast.  I can always add more:


For the shield I just added the ink wash for now on the brown areas and outer rim.  I think I will have to do the rivets another hit and some of the darker areas of the interior, but mostly I'm happy with it just giving some definition in here.  I'll still need to work up to some highlights on the skull part itself and I plan to emphasize the copper rays I have coming from the eyes.


And touch up some of the outer rim that the ink didn't really sink in with.  I may use the strong tone in a few places just for emphasis, but we'll see...

I'm thinking I now want to add some greens into the crevices of the shield as well.  And I'll be hacking apart Darius the Blue for his mouse and spellbook to add to the base... muwhaaahaaa....  Not Darius the Blue the First, but Darius the Blue the Second.  Maybe the hat too... if I can flatten it some... hmmm....

Shield reminds me of Grimoire Weiss. Maybe it is able to talk? I imagine that to be absolutely awesome. "Ai! That hurt! Curse you! Ai! Not that spot! Not again! Hit him, not me! errrr ... I should have taken that job as decoration when I had the chance ..."


Great work. Looking forward to see it finished.

Worked on Flamelick, the Pyro Goblin tonight... mostly.  I did lots of dark brown leather on One-Eye and Toadcaller too.

Ok, so here's how I'm thinking of laying it out.  And we'll see how this translates into imaginary land...


Yagun Oog is standing in for Kagunk as he is not attached with 2 pounds of putty*.  

This will aproximate what Kagunk the Ogre sees:


And this is what Kagunk does not see behind him...


For the model-less illustration, these are aproximate sizes of figures without the distraction of body, shape or form.  And is the only time the Goblins will be taller than the Ogre.


There will be rubble and branches and assorted things here.  I was worried that the 5x7 oval was going to be way too large.  There were also some birch ovals that were longer but narrower, which might work fairly well, but I still think would have too much open area.  Mostly the layout with the stuff right now is a bit too symetrical because things are bumping into each other.  Once I am putting the figures down, this won't be the case and Kagunk's awesome (possibly intelligent) shield will be very visible and his line across the square will not be a straight diagonal.  Most likely he will be aiming at Toadcaller (dagger and spear) trying to get to the taunting torch-wielding Flamelick.  Bigbite will be coming across some rocks that will extend at least to the edge of the platform (thinking of squaring part of that corner up and building it up a bit) so that he almost looks like he is leaping or about to leap at Kagunk and cut his achilles tendon.  It almost makes the goblins seem too smart... but a smart goblin would never attack an Ogre.


*Not literally 2 pounds, but it felt like it trying to get him to stick, especially after he vaulted off once...

      A tribe of Ogres from Reaper Miniatures. I was originally just going to get the Matriarch, having previously traded away the other Ogres from the Kickstarter core set, thinking I had enough from my former Ogre Kingdoms army for Warhammer.  Seeing them all together in person changed my mind!

      Sadly, my not-so-local shop was out of the Smasher.  I'll have to add him in later!
      The Matriarch.  I'm tempted to get another and convert her to look more like a fighter.  I was tempted to slice down the Goblin servant's ears and paint him as a baby Ogre on a leash.


      The Chieftain.  I love his door-shield!

      The Clubber (not to be confused with the Ogre Raver)

      The Guard.

      I batch painted these guys, they were just begging to be done as a group. It took longer than I expected for what amounts to a speedpaint, but I think the unified look was worth the grind. Im not super happy with the colors I chose, but once I had committed there was no going back.
      I do like the blue goblins, though. This year is shaping up to be "the year of the goblin" with all the goblins I have in my queue, so, their blue skin is nice variation. Blue goblins aren't often seen on the boards, and Ive always liked them (and I seem to recall buglips hating them ).
      The ogres are great sculpts, some of my favorite generic ogres ever. Im happy to have them.
      I'm looking forward to fleshing out the ranks a bit more. I plan to add the aquatic ogre, and the half ogre, as well as the new goblin command (all sculpted by Bobby Jackson, I believe). I was pleasantly surprised to see more goblin grunts as special edition minis this month - Ill have to get those as well.
      Anyhow, enough rambling, enjoy the pics!
      The whole crew  "everyone get in there":

      "now just the goblins"

      "the happy couple"

      "and one of the kids"

      "OK, two. Cant get enough of them."

      Comments and critiques are always appreciated. There are 14 bases here (and more minis if you count each gobbo) so if anyone would like some detail shots just holler and Ill happily add more.

      This is Miss Ogre 2017. Steve Harvey realized he made a mistake and that she actually came in second but when he tried to rectify the mistake, she ate him.
      I had such a good time painting her. I kept having Shrek flashbacks. First, "Get outta me swamp!" The Scottish accent made me want to attempt painting plaid. Then realizing that she is wearing two skirts because.....Ogres have layers! I considered giving her a tramp stamp, a beauty mark (her tusks are in the way), and platinum blonde hair. Maybe I will have to get another and do that on the next one.
      The little guy has pretty soft features and I couldn't see any mouth or anything on him so I gave him a suggestion of a mouth. I may go back and tweak it a little more. Not 100% sure what the things are hanging from the front of her belt. I almost painted them to be lizard heads! Also, not sure about her dagger looking rusty realistically but it's not bad. Plus, she is appearing in this weekend's game! I can't wait!
      Anyway, here she is. I present Miss Ogre 2017!

      Haven't been able to get my lights out, I want to do some close up of some of these guys but here is their group shots. If/when I do, I'll update this thread :) 


      I did want to do a bit more detail on them but honestly I'm suffering from can't see syndrome so I left it for now. Maybe when my eyes improve I can get some more done on them.
