Welcome to Librarium Online!
There is no doubt about it... I am actually insane. Certifiable.
Here is the 500 (497) point Ogre Kingdoms Army list:
Ogre Bruiser (w/heavy armour, great weapon) = 142 points
6 Orge Bulls (w/ cmd grp, ironfist, light armour, lookout) = 313 points
20 Gnoblars (w/ groinbiter) = 42 points
So, here is some background:
Galf Tradebasher, a ruthless ogre with a ruthless reputation, has settled on robbing caravans on the great trade route that travels from the old world to far Cathay. He and his band of Basher's have made quite the life for themselves, growing somewhat wealthy off the spoils.
And, some starter pics. Any tips on color choices?
You are mad! How many armies does this bring it up to now? Also, I think he has a moldline on his arm, on the right hand side of the image.
Siwwy dwarf! It's a scar! Or at least, that's be my excuse. Anyway, i love ogre armies, i'm looking forward to this.
Vampire Counts Progress Log [W:2 D:1 L:1]
Ok, quick update. Thanks to all of you that noticed the mould lines... I have removed them and applied the base to bring the paint back up again. Also, worked up a base for this guy...
Kuffy: Thanks mate... I have fixed the mould line I think. Take another look just in case. 5 active armies now (6 if you count the 500 point WOC army I did a while back- which is going to need an upgrade with the new addition out).
Sir Spamalot: Thanks mate. That is one big scar...
The bearded one: Only 27 models counting the gnoblars...
xbanditsx: Thanks mate. Your advice always proves very helpful.
I think it looks good dude, the purple is dark enough to look dirty, but still contrasts nicely with the khaki. Great work.
Ok, the weekend leaves us still unfinished on the first ogre. I started on the guy plate, but I just am now sure if I like it. The two boxes are supposed to be an ogre glyph for traders, and the red mountain in the background is the ogre strength over the traders. Sounds good, but looks like rubbish in my opinion. Also, I used red for the tattoos (sort of like rubbed on blood), but I don't think it contrasts enough. And, I am not sure I like using the shapes that I am using, they look a bit like a pre-schooler drew them. So, take a look at the painted gut plate. Then look at the two shield patterns (disregard the mould lines and paint job on the model, he was painted long ago) that I may tack on to the shield and let me know which you like the best. Or, a better idea.
Kuffy: Thanks mate. Any advice on the current dilemma?
I think the glyphs and mountain work well and I don't actually like the tacked on bits at all. My vote (obviously) is to keep going with the freehand option.
I'm not a huge fan of the tattoos just because, like you said, they don't seem to be much of anything. It looks like you've done a paw print on one shoulder which I like (at least from this angle) but the ones on his chest and other shoulder don't do much for me.
The pants look great (missed that update) - don't change those.
