Last month I was roped into fantasy by some friends I play 40k with. I decided if I was going to play fantasy, I'd go with Ogres as the models are sweet, and as an army would not require as much painting
I ended up decided to go with an angry fists army for the cool conversions possible with a blend of ogre and empire sensibilities. I've been painting and modeling for about a month now, and am to the point where I can share some of the progress with this amazing community.
None of the models in the following pictures are "finished," and have lots of details to go. My initial goal is to get the entire army painted to table top before I get in to the facial details, free hand tattoos, etc.
My thanks to totengraber for the skin recipe on his thread.
First up some Ogre Bulls. They will eventually have free hands on the gutplates, and the faces/beards will be detailed.
Next up is the first standard bearer.
A representative Irongut. I've got 7 painted to this standard.
Heres some examples of what i'm doing with the heads as simple conversions.
I took the pictures on the quick as I had to do it out front of my apartment, and I didn't want to "get caught." Being a closet nerd is difficult at times. So I apologize for the terrible lighting. I'll take better pictures later.
Please let me know what y'all think. I'm eager for all constructive criticism.
