Only a brief update for now while I try to remember what photo thing I'm keeping pictures on nowadays.



One of the ogres from the Reaper III Kickstarter. Still a couple of details to work on, and maybe a few more highlights. I kind of like the scruffy, dirty look of his skin but it also looks a bit to dirty to me.

Hopefully another update soon with a mix of khorne marauders and dwarves! Just have to take the pictures and upload them.

Nope! Last bath he had was probably wading thru a river. Looks great!

Some quick pictures just to remind myself that I do in fact paint on occasion. First up, finished the threesome of ogres plus a Merrow ogre who liked to hang out with them;



Then just another picture of some Goretide marauders. I actually really like these models despite not really playing chaos. Their nice and big, which means I can play around with colors and actually see how it looks without squinting. In particular I'm trying to experiment with skin colors.

Those mauraders are really unique. I remember a time when I wanted to do an all maurader army with cavalry as well. Those ogres look like they just want to hit things. Thatís what I like about AoS. You can just grab like minded individuals that want to wreak havoc and make a band out of them. Iím not too worried about synchronicities and stuff so it works well for me.

I agree. it's meant I can use a wider variety of stuff, especially means I can grab a few models that interest me and use them together.

I'm quite happy with the ogres actually. I usually hate my own painting, but I like that I got a few different skin tones going across the different models. Plus a few details like all the belts on the ogres being the same color tying them together worked well.

The ogres are great. What models are they? I have a few trolls with similar bases but I donít know were they came from.

Those ogres look very good!  I'm curious about where they came from, too.  And are the gore tide figures current GW?

The ogres are Reaper Bones line from their 3rd kickstarter. I don't know if their out in retail just yet, but if they aren't they will be soon. The ogres are a real nice size though and the detail is pretty good.

The goretide are some of the chaos marauders out of the Age of Sigmar starter set. You get about 20 of them and I'm about two thirds through the unit. You can see some other pictures of previous painted ones further back.

Here ya go. The ogres I have are in the top right. The cheaper version is bones and elsewhere on the same page are more expensive metal versions.

Ah yes, the WAoS starter set, those chaos figures do look like fun to paint.  And your idea to paint them with different skin tones reminds me of 023 painting some of his unit of half-orcs in different tones as well.  I like the effect.

Gankom's Painting Blog of Random Variety Dorf Day
« Reply #35 on: February 13, 2018, 06:35:49 PM »
Some more fantasy models all finished up and tabletop ready. It was dorf day on the weekend, along with some a friendly neighborhood metal wizard.

First up we have the ancient and craggy Krag the Grim! In the Lore of my gaming group for the past decade we've been playing an a whole new world. One formed from bits and pieces of other fantasy worlds essentially 'stolen' by the gods of this one. So everyone from Lord of the Rings Characters, to Warhammer lords, to Terry Pratchetts most wanted live in these parts. Krag the Grim however is having none of that. He intends to reforge the good ol'fashioned Dawi of the Undgrim Ankor!





He's got some help though. First a few steady gunners (and a sole brave warrior) have joined his mission. The bulk are drawn from loyal dwarfs of Karak-Hirn, but some come from the scattered refugees of other holds that have found themselves in this new, broken world.



Then we have some civilians to help manage the logistics. Two of the most important in fact! Namely a brewer to keep them in drink, and a butcher to keep them fed!





Finally (For today) we have the wizard Henrich Agrippa. Learned and skilled in the Lore of Metal, he's been 'assisting' Krag the Grim in the hopes that he might learn some Runelord to boost his current abilities.



~~

As for the painting itself, I'm generally pretty happy with it. The cold, white eyes bother me a bit, but my hands just aren't steady enough to actually paint a pupil in there. Last time I tried I gave everyone solid black eyes that looked even worse.
