Default WoC Dragon Ogre

Hey everyone, as a venture into my new WoC army, I decided to model up a Dragon Ogre.

I used the new plastic daemon prince kit as well as the horse from the warriors of chaos knights set and copious amounts of grey stuff. Thoughts? I feel like the arms might be too big in comparison to the horse but that's probably just GW's goofy over-exaggerated scale on hands, etc. I also cut off the two middle fingers and greenstuffed em to look a little more reasonable.

Comments welcome

Looks a little top heavy to me, maybe, depending on your GS skills you could try and bulk out the horse body a little?
All in all though it's a really cool conversion/kitbash looks good!

really nice idea, sir. but i have to agree with Norm - the model looks very top heavy at the moment...

i've seen some nice Dragon Ogre conversions using cold ones and regular plastic ogres, but i can't for the life of me remember where...

foible - foi·ble / ˈfoibəl

Yeah, my thoughts as well. Perhaps I should GS in the saddle?

i dont think you can do much to change the top heaviness because the DP model is just a bit to big.. you can try making a bigger tail.. and barding.. but i dont think it will make to much difference.

still looks really cool.. but i think maybe a minotaur body would have been better.

Innovative choice of parts.

I like the pose; very dramatic.

Nice idea, and the conversion is nicely pulled off, but the DP body is just tooo big for it to look right. Its a very nice pose if you can manage to pull the proportions off, maybe bulking up the horse body as suggested may help.
