Very enjoyable report! Good looking armies and terrain, and I like text  :smile2:

Too bad on the loss, but it was hard fought! Next time team up with the stunties and go hunt some evil doers!  :biggriin:

Behold the end of a journey.

unpacking



some ver good reading stuff


WOW... I mean. Well done Ogre! ...and .... I still use the Ogres.  :::cheers:::



The words to tell how much I like it are probably not enough, the effort and love put in it is great.

Thank you Padre,

My Pleasant Surprise finally got through, and on the exact day I had finally come to accept it wouldn’t. The experience taught me a lesson, which I think I have already forgotten!

Henerius has said I can post images first, and so I am doing so!

This is what happened.

Scouring Henerius’ posts I discovered he had a rather nice ogre army.



So, I decided to add something to that army – an ogre filling the footprint of two ogres, aka a ‘filler’. Always a welcome addition to the serious gamers’ army, and hopefully a chance to come up with a nice little modelling project.

My own ogre style (grey flesh) and painting method (cell shaded enamels) were not suitable though, as the result would jar with Henerius’ painting style. So I met Henerius’ army half way and did the flesh in acrylics, trying to get as close as I could to the flesh in the pics, while the rest of the figure would be in my usual black-undercoated enamels. A bit of both styles!

The photos seem to lighten the figure, but in the flesh it does look like Henerius’ figures. Except, I now realise that I was looking at photographs of Henerius’ figures, which means I should have gone for a darker tone. Possibly.

Here it is – an ogre pulling a sledge of loot.



I used chains in several places, including as a shoulder belt.



The sword is in an actual sewn leather scabbard (just seemed easier), and the pile of loot is tied with rope (i.e. brown wool strands). The sledge is made from parts of a scrap-launcher I was given.



So, a combination of plastic, metal, chain, cotton thread, wool, leather, acrylics and enamels, and sand on the base. (I got the base as close as I could, and left the pebbles and greenery for Henerius to add to make it fit in all the better with his own brutes!)

Being me, and liking the idea of ogres hauling loot as fillers, I decided to work on one for myself too. There was no deadline for my own, so it is still a WIP. Of the two I thought that a sledge was the more appropriate method for Ogres, so mine is the one with wheels …



I said I’d send the best of the pair off. I think I did!
