A Slow WIP Ogor Tribe

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. I've started on the mammoth task of rebasing and painting the ~2500pts of Ogre Kingdoms I accumulated back around 2010. I find they're a nice break from my wash-focused Tyranids and Mechanicum. So far I've completed a unit of 6 Bulls/Gluttons; some of the recipes are still work-in-progress (particularly the skin and bone) and will be adjusted for future models.

Next up will be a unit of 4 Ironguts. After that I've got 2 Leadbelchers, 2 Mournfangs, a Tyrant, and a Butcher to reach my notional 1K list.

 Nice project! And looking good. Love the subdued green that ties them together as well.

Given that that green is meant to represent oxidized brass, rather than an army color... like I said, recipes are work-in-progress :P I think it needs a bit more blue and a bit more contrast in its application to sell the effect.

As far as tying the models together, I'm trying something new (to me) and going for a unified color palette rather than any specific 'army color'. My main rule so far is no warm colors for the clothing, just greens, blues, and greyscale. That provides some contrast with the skin and leather, and I think ties in nicely with the basing to give them a cold weather look.

Haha I realised it was oxidised metal. But it’s exactly what you described. 
It’s a palette that makes them seem as a whole and that green is a nice subdued spot color. 

its a really solid scheme that’s well executed.
