Tournament preparation battle report 1

We made some changes to our campaign. There will be first small tournament in our area at the end of May with 1000p armies. So we wanted to try out some 1000p armies for the tournament and play with matched play rules and battleplans. Therefore we used no special abilites received in the campaign. Battleplan: we started from the first: Take and Hold: if you have 5 models close to enemy and your own objective, you get major victory. Armies: Points: 1000 Bretonnian army: 5

Savage Arrowboys

The Arrowboys are slowly getting their paints on. I kept the reddish-brown skin tone, green-gold aztec style and still couldn't manage with obsidian weapons. But I used GW green glaze for the frst time and liked it a lot - the "emerald" earrings are made with white base and green glaze. For savage orruk heroes I try to make some glazes myself and paint only with these.  View the full article

Savage Boarboys ready

Being ill during weekend turned out to be very productive hobby wise. All ten savage boarboys are ready. I don't like the ordinary green skin of orruks and wanted to make it reddish-brown. The boars are also brown and I still wanted orruks to stand out, so normal brown wasn't good. After many test models and trying even green colour scheme, I finally got acceptable tint and could carry on. I wanted to add them some aztec-style look (jade green and gold), but just could not get the right ton

Savage Boarboy conversions

I bought some savage orruks and savage boarboys. However, I like the forward charging posture of ordinary orruk boarboys much more, so I got some orruk boarboy bits and tried to convert/kitbash. Now I got 5 converted savage boarboys and 5 normal savages. I replaced the body and legs. I didn't mind the metal parts, I want to make most savage orruks' weapons rusted metal instead of stone anyway. However, thay look a bit too much like normal orruks, regardless of heads and weapons/shields, so

Side-trek to Stormcast and Frustration Plateau

The orruks still haven't arrived, so I got a magazine from our shop with one Stromcast Eternal mini in it. It seemed interestingly different from painting ogres, so I tried it. I wanted it to appear worn out, a bit rusty and battered, lonely Stormcast left behind deep in enemy territory. And I just couldn't manage to make it nice and well painted. The colours are off and it looks like dirt, but not in a way I wanted. So SteelStrongs post hit the mark pretty well: I have no idea how to

Doom Diver Catapult conversion

Ogres stole two catapults from their Brettonian enemies and turned them into gnoblar doom diver catapults. In other words, I found two cheap catapult sprues online and turned them into grot war machines. Grots  are yet to follow, I'll make them from gnoblars. I wanted to make wings for grots from greenstuff, but could not manage, so I went for simpler solution: grot in a bucket.  View the full article

Tokens and object markers

I am waiting for my savage orruks to arrive and don't have any models to paint. So yesterday evening I made four simple object markers and five tokens. I wanted to do something that looks cool on the table instead of plastic tokens, but easily recognizable also. Object markers are pretty simple, but I'm quite happy with the tokens. I used polystyrene, plastic cement and grey/white paints for tokens. View the full article

My ogor army is ready!

In the last days of 2016 I managed to complete my ogor army, Thundertusk and maneater being my last models painted. I started in March 2016 with my very first model, bought Ogre Battalion box and painted my first ogor in June. Gradually I increased the army with Mournfangs, Maneaters, Frostsabres, Thundertusk and Stonehorn and I managed to finish it within six months. Altogether I now have 9 Ogors (4 bought from ebay before I decided to paint myself), 9 Leadbelchers, 6 Ironguts, Huskard on Thude

The last maneater

I finally finished my last converted maneater. Converted from Stonehorn spare ogor, I tried to make it similar to Golgfag model. So I added horns on a gutplate and made a cloak from greenstuff, which was my first and therefore quite a challenge. And it did not turn out as well as I had hoped. But for the first one it is okay, I think.   View the full article

Progression as a painter

So, I finally got to rebase all my ogre models. Instead of plain black painted square bases I now have round bases with agrellan earth, stones etc. Looks so much better. I also completed Stonehorn and Thundertusk, both great models and lovely to paint. I will post post pictures of both round bases and new painted models as soon as I get some pictures done. To sum up this year hobby-wise: it was surprisingly fun. I painted my first model ever in March, this year. I took a look on

Ghorgon

As a little side-trek from destruction, I painted a ghorgon for my kid to play with. The model is HUGE. It took ages to complete. Skin was done with two layers of Cadian Fleshtone plus three layers of red shade. It took some time till I got used to covering so large area with shade, so it is not as smooth as I wanted. I messed up a bit the first layer and could not repair it later. The horns blending I drybrushed (but the brush was just a tiny bit wet) as recommended by ConOgre in his

Campaign battle report: Fortifying the Citadel

Orcs had found a ruined citadel near the border of the vale. Hastily they started rebuilding it, but Bretonnian scouts reported about the danger and army of Grail Knights set forth. Battleplan: The Monolith (one side has to build a monolith: roll 1d6 each hero phase, 20 points needed to complete, +1 for general adjacent to it, opponent can desecrate it if within 3 inches and rolls 4+; victory conditions: major victory for completing or desecrating the monolith). Matrix result: did not
