Along with Agonel's horde (which is hybernating at the moment) I'll be making a heavily converted ogre army.
When you see the first model, you'll get the picture of where I'm going with the theme.

My greystuffing skills aren't too great, but I'll get better. ;) Anyways, I present to you :

Irongut Bellower (who used to represent the tyrant):

No you're right, greenstuffing is very bad and the painting!  :roll:

[/Cynical mode]

Now for real: I had to look a few times to see if there was a GW ogre used.
Especially with the confrontation picture underneath.

Are there maw symbols on the pants? it looks great.
I really like your painting it looks very real ( not like my more comical painting.)

You, my friend, are taking a shot at legendary status here.

Now all we need is the 7th edition rule that said if the models are killed they don't get to fight and we WOULD be a broken army! lol

Ogre conversions with orc heads = instant win in my book.  The man looks rock solid, from his blue fu manchu down to his lil' booty feet.

Now I want to see the khan's underlings.

I shudder think what you'll be doing when you get "good."

Great job on the tyrant. Sure he doesn't have a great weapon and all, but you pulled it off wonderfully.
If by RAW, you mean "Reg06's Audacious Whims", then you'd be right.

Nope, those are little white flowers. (It happens when a girl paints miniatures ;))

@Boss_Salvage- I'm working on an irongut just now. He'll be a member of Khan's personal guard- they collect hands of their enemies as trophies.

Wow! You've got great modelling skills, Nightmare.
What are your plans with the rest of the army? Perhaps the old hobgoblin wolfrider models would look cool with the khan.

The bellower looks really cool, and his ironfist is awesome. The loin clothe appears to have fingerprints in it, or are is that a pattern you put there purposefully?

The fingerprint on the loincloth was not put there on purposely, but I thought I could leave it cause it would look like rough cloth when painted. So, the answer to your question,Reg06, is BOTH.  ;)

I've made an armylist for 2250 points. The tyrant model I've made will be degraded into an irongut bellower. I'm thinking about a better model with an apropriate Tenderizer to represent the mighty Őrüg-Khan. Here's the list, if you wish to comment or there's anything you'd like to suggest feel free to do so.


Őrüg-Khan (Tyrant)
luck gnobbo, tenderizer, jade lion, mawseeker              295

You've given up alot of other choices for 5 scrolls...which is way over the top imho.  Hellheart, cookbook, thiefstones and skullmantle are all good choices and far more flavorfull.  Also far less likely to make your army take a comp hit tourneywise.  Otherwise pretty solid list.

Those enemy hands should go really well with the floral print.

Brilliant models so far. I love your tyrant and it's always interesting to see ogres with orc heads.

Hmmm, I agree with Talonz. Five dispell scrolls is a bit over the top. Also, I noticed in my own games that 2 is a bit too small a unit size for leadbelchers. With another model, they have enough numbers to get that importent bull charge. But besides that, it looks like a good list.

Gaikhatu  (Butcher)

Btw, I've converted a butcher out of a bull yesterday. Pics when painted.
Those spiritual leaders this tribe are mutated because of the powerful gut magic they use. Their deformity is a consequence of minor miscasts in the past. I should start writing some more fluff these days...

Where are you going to use the luck gnoblars on your butchers for?
They don't work at any dice you know?

Now all we need is the 7th edition rule that said if the models are killed they don't get to fight and we WOULD be a broken army! lol

For trying to prevent them being killed by the enemy. If they're gonna die, it should at least be by their own miscast.  8)
I don't have much experience in gaming. Are you trying to say the luck gnobbos are no good?

They help for rerolling saves, but not for other things as I recall.
As they don't have saves, the items are useless, though very fluffy :lol:

Right, I forgot butchers have no armor nor I gave 'em ward.  :oops:
With the extra points, I'll give the bulls additional hand weapons.

Much to the amusement of my opponent, I made that mistake as well a few weeks ago. I even have a luck gnoblar modelled on the base  :roll:.

FLUFFFFFF (I'm not really trying to keep this in boundaries of Warhammer world official fluff):

SHAMANS (BUTCHERS)
Ulgchi, Urus & Gaikhatu are shamans, spiritual leaders of the Tribe. They are a disturbing sight to behold- their bodies mutated and bloated as a result of wielding raw and primitive magic.
They brew potions which enhance stamina, resillience or have healing effects.

THE BAHADUR (IRONGUTS WITH BANNER)
They serve as the Khan's personal bodyguards. They collect hands of their enemies, wich they display as trophies on their banner and which they nail onto their plate armor and shields.

THE KASHIK (BULLS)
are young, aspiring warriors who haven't yet earned the true warrior status.

BLACKPOWDER ENGINEERS (LEADBELCHERS)
have stolen the technology of blackpowder weaponry from the Cathayans. In battle they succesfully wield great cannons.


More soon.
