Welcome to Librarium Online!
A guy at D.W.A.R.F. play OK and I was scrutinizing his models when I saw the potential for a theme army.
What are ogres? Big, fat, drunken thick heads who like nothin more that a good fight!
What are bogans/soccer hooligans/general thugs? Big, fat, drunken thick heads who like nothin more that a good fight!
So, I was thinking of a army where each unit is modeled to represent thugs from all over the world!
A unit of Bulls painted as the "Barmy Army" (UK cricket fans) with Union Jack flags, red and white painted faces, beer cans etc!
A unit of Man United soccer hooligans, lorn Guts with Blue and while clothing ManUnited tats, flags etc. oh and BEER cans!
lorn Guts - Aussie cricket fans, green and gold faces, banner reading "Ozzie, Ozzie, Ozzie - Oi, Oi Oi!" More BEER CANS!!!
Maneaters - American Rednecks, cowboy hats, boots, KKK tats, MORE BEER CANS!!!!
Scraplauncher - A converted American pickup with a catapult attached!
Butcher - convert to be covered in booze bottles, call him a BARTENDER!
Gnoblars modeled and painted as any random street thug who likes to hang out in gangs (Gangstarz, teenagers, pimps.... etc) and flees at the first sign of defeat.
There would be plenty of opportunity to convert some ogres to be crawling and puking. A few with orange road work cones on their heads would be great too!!
Shame I have 4 kids and could never get the time to do this but if anyone with more time than I wants to have the idea and run with it, its yours!!
That sounds pretty cool.
Hah, I actually have wondered what a soccer thug ogre army would look like, but I never really did get around to thinking about it in such detail. The army idea sounds great, I will consider it!
