I love the Maggotcrown ogre juggernaut and the Bones ogres and had been wanting to make another armoured ogre for a while. This is nearly done, I just need to think about a base.
The juggernaut has a separate head and the ogre guard has an easy to cut head so all I needed to do was fill in the hole with greenstuff and try and make the excess look like hair.
I haven't washed the armour, I just used the new Army Painter drybrush over a dark grey primer spray.
Next project might be to take the armoured bones ogre and try a head swap or pose change on that. Nothing too major, just an attempt to have variety if I have an armoured ogre unit.
After completing my Reaper training kits, I'm ready to start tackling my old 80s lead minis from my youth. I tried painting a couple when I was twelve years old and failed so miserably I literally thought there was no way I would ever be able to even attempt this hobby and it was just better left to others with more talent. Thanks Reaper for making the awesome training sets and helping me try again after over 35 years. So without further ado I begin digging into my vault from the 80s. Apologies if this forum is for Reaper products only, no insult intended.
So I think this baddie might be a Ral Partha Hill Troll, but not sure. Anybody have some insight?
Presenting the Ogre Tyrant by Games Workshop, he is very heavily armed.
This one took a while, it's very much one of those minis where the more you work on it, the more details you find.
I am very pleased with how he turned out though.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
FF53 - Ogre from Citadel miniatures "Fiend Factory" range, early 1980's.
I'm guessing that for older members of the forums, this old Citadel mini might be considered somewhat of a classic, maybe even iconic? Back in the day, It's imagery definately played a part in getting me into the hobby as a wee lad. I never owned it back then but recently picked one up & painted it up!
Thanks for looking.
Painted up this awesome fig as my first experience with the bones black material. I loved the detail, and it took the primer/paint really well. I didn't have any real plan with this one, so I just started with the bear pelt. I had never painted a polar bear before, so I went with that. After that was done, I thought blue would look neat with the white fur, and the rest just came together. It wasn't until I got finished that I realized he looked like a big angry Smurf! Still really happy with him though! Critiques and advice are always welcome, thank you!
