hi peeps, a couple of months ago i got hold of a small ogre kingdom army, which was mostly painted
like this

now at first i was gona keep the blue skin and just lighten it, but in the end i decide to do a complete redo of the skin
heres a couple of test models


basicly ive gone a for a grey skin tone to give a stony look, idea for a mountain tribe
also a test modle for my yettees


Tbh i wasn too sure i would do a good job on this mini, but am happy with the way he's turned out
and a hunter im working


also happy with him as well, just got the final details to finish and hes all done.
let me know what you all think, and i see if i can take some better pics if i can

cheers

I do like the skin tones on the ogres. The yeti looks nicely drybrushed. Good finish on the hunter's jacket. When will you have this army finished?

Cheers for the comments.
yeah i know, but as there a repaint, tbh, i just couldnt be arsed to clean up the mess on the models as they was already painted. as and when i get more troops, then they should be clear of any flash and mold lines.
As for the fur, started with a battlegrey base coat, then codex grey dry, fortress grey dry brush, then added a blue wash to the heavyier areas of the fur, then done light space wolf grey dry brush, followed by a pure with, that was how i done all the fur, only exception being a light gryfin spepia wash on the hunters furs.

Yeah, they all look really cool- its a similar colour scheme that Ive gone for, although mine have a little more green in their colouring. That hunter is an awesome conversion, Im assuming its meant to be a greyback pelt? Either way if you want to use him as a bruiser be careful of the base sizes- the hunter is the only ogre model on a 50*50mm base instead of the standard 40*40mm.

Nice job can'twait to see more of the army as you get it going.

i'm enjoying your re-paint work so far, sir. looking forward to seeing some more finished stuff.

i'd never really paid much attention to the ogres until now [the army book was released while i was "on sabbatical" from the hobby!] - but this thread could make my decision of which whb army to start up for the 8th edition very difficult indeed! :grin:

The army is coming along really nicely mate.

The hunters jacket looks really nice, and the general skin tone looks nice throughout. The yettee's fur is spot on, and the ice blade looks really nice too.

This definitely deserves some rep.

cheers m8, i must admit, im very happy with the way the ice weapons have turned out, just hope i can repeat it on the other 2 yetties. the main thing i havent decided on yet, is what to do about the base's, as i have no idea yet on what to do with em. so if any one has any ideas/surgestions, they be welcome

That looks like a good old metal technique.

Arte you planning on ageing the load as well or leaving it shiny to emphasise the age of the cannons?

cheers dave, i may do a bit of a mixed load, some old, some new, some stolen.............lol.
i should have some more picks up later today, as ive been doing some more on the metal work and leather, and a tad more on the tyrant (read about 80% finished....lol).
once this lot is done, i need to decide what my next block of 250pts will be. i may go for some gnobblars, but as there already painted (blue skin, so there my little blue meanies), that will be a touch up highlight and shade job, also have 8 unpainted trappers as well and a few more ogres to choose from.
and for reference, my opponents in the challange are 2 gobbo armys, a VC army, an empire army, a skaven army and WOC army, and all but the WOC currently out number me model wise, I.E 96 in the skaven............lol
