Hello, Hi, Hey, and all that!
I was once semi-active here with a Empire styled Ogre army that seemed to be well liked. I sold most of my stuff, including the stuff I had commissioned from a local talent (a GS master), and left this fine place. Time was a factor and I decided to keep my fantasy focus on just one fantasy army (Empire). My love for Ogres never left me however and I had a Irongut unit commissioned from Mike Butcher.
I intend to start a new army - Ogres for several reasons; the novel Savage Kingdoms, rereading the OK army book, the plastic models, and the opportunity to do some simple conversions on my own. The only thing I've kept from my old collection was the Maneaters (seen below). I am not interested in doing an Empire styled army anymore. I like the crude half-naked Ogre culture and intend to fluff-use my Maneaters as returning Ogres from the Old World.
But before I start a Gnoblog, I wanted to start off by showing two items that Mike Butcher did for me. I painted them both, but the real skill lies with the nice conversion work Mike did with both the Ironguts and my Empire Giant. At the end of this post you can also see my WIP of the Maneaters I intend to use in my OK army (pray I keep my interest up). Only one of them is completed and I have shown him here before (Mike didn't do these).
Mike also did this fine looking Chimera for my IG Ogryns (can't wait until May).
But next up is a Gnoblog with some real nasty looking Ogres.
Here is the first unit for that army.
