Done lovely and like the addition of the wolves! And I sympthize with the painting horses thing.. been a chore mostly for me also.

I like how you changed up the original colors of this unit. Unlike how I did them (the original way seen "here" I wanted to say, but I really need to host my older pictures at my blog... as FB messed them up again in my own blog thread)

Thank you! Yeah horses are just a pain to paint.. :oops:

I think it worked well for my unit and my army, but I really like the classic look as well as I understand that you went for?

I really like the look of both ogres in the unit. Those old marauder ogres have so much character.

I think the ogres break up the unit too much, especially when in the front rank. If you added a normal guy or two to their bases, it might help. Else, I would keep them in separate units.

I think both ogres are great additions to your unit. Do not hesitate to add some dwarfs too :)

Yep, Ogres with character, and couple of dwarfs wouldn't be a bad idea either.

So I got a warwagon out of Ebay. The warwagon was in pretty rough condition and prepainted, with a missing back part of the actual wagon. I decided to make a little bit of conversion to it.
My plan as of now is to add the Al-Ulrik to it, his little wagon that he take to battle. Or the alternative is to add "kislev wings" to the back of it, and then a couple of kislev miniatures.  :icon_rolleyes:

Here it is:









And a before and after:

Great conversion! Both of your ideas sound very cool, and I'm sure it's OK to combine them: feathered banners for Al-Ulrik. If need be, you can keep them modular, for example with magnets.

Looks great!

...Do you mean to use a larger base than the 'original' size for the Altar/Wagon, then?

Thanks all of you :) it feels good being able to give the wagon a new life. I'm leaning towards adding the feathers with magnets. Should not be to difficult I think. Just need to get the small magnets.

Regarding the base..I think my base is to big I guess? With years I have become more of a painter/collector than a player. Want the army to be somewhat playable but mostly have a nice feel to it. And with time I have gotten an interest in old miniaturures , to add them to bring life to the unit. I have now ordered 3 oop dwarfs to add to the unit of spearmen...money money money  ::heretic::

With wolfs like that, it deserves a bigger base! :icon_mrgreen:

Nice conversion (except the flames maybe). And I vote for the Ulric priest.

So I have done my last day of painting for 2018, painting the Ar-Ulrik so the warwagon is complete.












I also had a look to see what Ive painted from August until today:





Dark pictures I know, but is nice to have a look at what you done every now and then.
