Been slowly chipping away at the pile of grey shame.
There are a lot of 'big' elements to add to the ogre army which have been absorbing a lot of my hobby time recently but decided I needed to see something finished in order to keep the painting mojo high so made a concerted effort to get somethings completed this last week.
First up is Reaper bones ogre which I originally bought at the Miniature Empire. This gives some indication how long it has been sitting in the cupboard of doom.
Not the greatest miniature ever created but considering it cost less the 3 quid (new!) I am more then happy with it.
It will end up hidden within a bigger unit of Ogres somewhere.
Finishing the above miniature from start to finish in less then an hour really helped me get the bit between my teeth and I immediately reached for another lump of semi finished plastic crack.
The miniature below is an addition to my Ogre Tyrant army thanks to claiming the 'Banner of Mount Bloodhorn' after the siege of Ekrund.
I decided to give it the symbol from Lee's Orc army.
The reason being in the Badlands lore the banner was originally an Orc banner which gives the unit the 'Devastating charge' special rule.
The banner was also given an Orc skull I had sitting in the bits box to honour Lee's General's last stand during 'Riotville LIVE!'.
It was also originally intended to show the unity between Lee's army and mine!!!!!!
Of course after his treachery during game six this 'unity' is now very debatable!
Below is my effort to homage Lee's original banner.
Lee's original banner is below.
My army symbol adorns the other side.
The final entry to the painting tally today is the last of my Ironguts I had sitting around.
Absolute minimum effort on this fella due to his 'third ranker' status.
I only really got this fella done in order to scratch the Ironguts completely off my to-do list.
Now the numbers
Miniatures painted / sold this year = 174
Miniatures bought 97
341 miniatures to go!
