Hi everyone, I was one of the lucky few to have a box waiting for me on Friday afternoon. After doing inventory last night, I decided I wanted to start with painting some ogres. Now this is going to take a little longer than normal, because I may.... have bought 11 ogres with the kickstarter. In the end I got the ogre command, and 2 extra sets of the core set ogres. Here we are at the outset- scrubbed, glued, green-stuffed, and partially primed. I'll update as I make progress!
So I'm going to attempt to pull off a feat of craziness here. I'm planning on a 5-figure diorama that I started last night and trying to finish in time for ReaperCon. The figures are as follows: 3 Ogres (Tom, Dick, & Harry from the Reaper Artists Con) - 03710 03711 03712 Praying Paladin - 03600 Grey Maiden - 60025 Photo of Tom, Dick, and Harry (the three to the right) courtesy of hungerfan's post while he was at the RAC: Anyhow, here's my idea that came to me when I saw them: The praying paladin is kneeling before a broken temple to his Goddess (the Grey Maiden figure). Nature has reclaimed the temple, all that is left are ruins, broken columns and the old faded statue. There is overgrowth everywhere, the statue and columns are stained with the passage of time. Suddenly three ogres see him and rush in to clobber the praying paladin, they have him surrounded... So far, I've gotten the ogres mostly cleaned up of mold lines, glued together, and placed on their 2-inch plastic bases. Tonight I'll finish cleaning up mold lines, fill gaps, prime, and work on the big base which is around a 7 inch circular base of wood about 2mm thick, I'll add foam and cork board to build it up. The plan is to have the ogres and the paladin as removable and their individual bases cleverly hidden so they look like they are a part of the scene seamlessly. I'll be working fast and furious on this as I only have 10-11 nights to work on it, but most of those nights I'll have 5-6 hours to work on it and that means I could get this done in 50-60 hours. Wish me luck! C&C will be greatly appreciated through the process as well.
