Thought I'd show what I've been spending much of my sculpting time working on lately after accepting a Commission for a ull squad of ten Praetorian themed Ogryn conversions based on the Ogre Bull (and later Leadbelcher) plastic kits.
At the moment I've gotten to the stage of having the first five finished excluding their weapons which will be the next part of the project before moving onto the other five members of the unit.
The first three came out pretty much as I'd hoped, there is to be a fair bit of diversity in terms of uniform across the unit to give them the proper Praetorian feel, while also having a feral edge of what lies beneath.
The forth I was less happy with, while the concept of the open jacket was fun it just didnt work out in line with the vision, acceptable, but he's definately my least favourite of the first five. In retrospect following some suggestions I'm gonan revisit this one one last time and add a seam for the inner lining of the jacket which will hopefulyl further improve the look of the model.
The Bonehead meanwhile has been a big success for me, it's definately been one of my favourites to make (the first two were probably on a par with him as they ooze with character for me), looking forward to an Ogryn sized chainsword to arm him with next.
Wow that is truly impressive green stuff work. The one with the uniform is amazing! I'd love to see these painted, man that monocle kills me. :]

They look great - excellent work. I think my favourite has to be the first one (with the pith hat). For some reason he just fits the cross-over between ogryn and praetorian perfectly, being neither too much of one or the other. The sideburns help to seal the deal.
The Bone'ead looks a little more like a big pudgy general than an Ogryn. I know he's supposed to be more intelligent, but I can't help thinking he's lost some of that fundamental 'ogryn character'. The second ogryn doesn't seem to have much of a Praetorian tie-in. He looks like a normal ogryn or even an ogre, but in a tank top, and I can't help feeling he could do with a small visual Praetorian cue. All minor stuff, and a matter of personal preference though!
Keep up the good work!!

Still as good as ever, Gravis. Looks like I've got someone to steal modelling skills from. I already got a target for painting skills, so I expect the GDs to be rolling in shortly.
Oh, I also addded you as a friend. We spoke some back on Dr. Thunder's forum. Before it went belly-up. Apparently.
Okay, so now I have no signature. Great.
I have been following these on your blog and they look awesome. Really nicely converted and a unique look. Are you also being commissioned to paint them or just convert them?
These are absolutely incredible! Its not often I've seen sculpting done as well as this! They are all superb, but, like Maligoare, the first one is my favourite. He reminds me of the movie Zulu, of the British soldiers at Rourkes Drift.

Maligoare, I see what your saying about the Bonehead, though I'm still very pleased with him, the second I think will blend fine once he's painted, he's got the trademark trousers with verticle stripe down the outside leg, once painted appropriately, with a vest, he should I feel blend right in with the rest of the unit without any additional work.
ISwearImHim, the Phoenix Club is back up an running, be it alot quiter at the moment, migth be worth another look if you were'nt aware of it, good to make your reaquaintence though!
King Ulrik Flamebeard, I'm just doing the converting, as you probably know from my blog I'm a realyl slow painter for the most part, hence my delve into commissions is modelling only at this stage.
