Hey Guys and Girls!
I have now been out of the hobby for 10 years for many various reasons. Now that I have more spare time I have decided to get back into it .
I have never been a very good painter but I enjoy it so that is all that matters. I am hoping posting here and keeping an ongoing log of what I am doing will keep me motivated to complete an Ogre Kingdom Army.
I am also hoping to get good hints and tips as I have pretty much forgotten all the techniques and what colours work best with each other, so all comments good or bad are appreciated as I can learn from these (but be gentle it has been 10 years ).
Ok intro over. I decided on an Ogre Kingdom Army as I really like the models and thought it would be a good start on painting techniques as they are bigger models, I will work my way to smaller models when i feel confident with a paintbrush again.
I am going to start with a unit of Iron Guts as the models are so awesome!
Here are some images of my paint area and first models I will start on:

Well wish me luck!
OK here is my first update of what I managed to get done yesterday so I thought I would share it with you to see what you all think. Remember this is the first time in 10 years I have properly picked up a paint brush so all comments and critisms are welcome.
First Iron Gut and the rest of his units bases:
Welcome back to the hobby. I remember those paint pots when I first started the hobby 17 years ago (Im getting old!)!
I must say, while this may not be Golden Daemon standard painting (mine isn't either!) this is still decent quality, definately good enough for the tabletop. With a few more techniques (a little rust on the metal areas) this will be a pretty decent model!
Have a browse through the projects and hobby forums for some guidance on different techniques, perhaps the tutorials section may be helpful.
Well even if you haven't picked up a brush in a while I have to say I very much like what I see! Good job, keep it up!
My project log: High Elves (and other stuff actually, but mainly High Elves).

With a ten year pause in painting thats very good job. Also its nice to see Ogres here. I don't see many in my games.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently but have been finishing my dissertation as part of my degree. Well its all done and out of the way so time to paint again.
Since my last post I have now bought and built the rest of my army and its all primed ready to go. I made custom movement trays for the whole army too.
Here are a couple of pictures of the painting I have got done. C and C please
Wow, for ten years that is a very nice paint job. Your metals look great and your skin tone is amazing. Keep it up!
I must say that i love the way you painted the sword on the ogre in your first update (the fourth image). Mind sharing how you did it? Im going to be painting some ogre blades soon and i really like the look of it, and metal painting is my biggest weakness so i could definitely use a few pointers
Where did you get that modelling table? That's just what I would need to get start
those were the paint stations gw used to sell b4 they made their tiny crappy new ones. i bought mine 11 years ago, so spacious, gotta love it im pretty sure you cant get these anymore
