OrcOgre Hobby Update

So I have a busy few days and weekend so haven’t done as much hobby as the past few weeks but I have managed to get a few bits and bobs done!

Firstly I have finished a couple movement trays with tufts etc to match my basing and I am really happy with the results! It ties the bases together a lot better in my opinion!  Next up I built a new dining table lol (my current hobby area!) which is a great move forward with the new house! I have also finished painting my Slaughter Master (he has a head at long last lol!) Really happy with how he came out so pretty chuffed there! I have also pinned and glue together Inquisitor Coteaz for my new grey knight army! Love this model and can’t wait to paint it, easily my favourite inquisitor fluff and model wise!

The big (HUGE) thing I have been working on however was assembling my Orc Rogue Idol… Yes I caved and bought it! I saw an awesome deal going on twitter (thanks to @Joel_henry for selling and @Stuntymike for tempting me!) So this will be my secondary (or primary maybe lol) stonehorn! It was awesome fun (and quite easy actually) to build so big thumbs up there! I have a cunning plan for converting/modifying it to better match the theme of the army involving a rider…. I will get pics up of my plan in a work in progress position early next week (or earlier if you’re on twitter!). Im going to be painting this guy up as stone using a similar technique to my terrain features on the ironblaster and Arack-na-Horn with heather/tufts protruding from the crevasses in the Idol’s rock joints!

Anyway loads of pics here for reference (particularly assembly stages for the Rogue Idol and scale pictures!) so have a look and let me know what you think guys!

Triumph and Treachery April

The other night we played a 5 player Triumph and Treachery game at the G3 club in glasgow. Seems like a great venue and we will be making a return! This was the first painted outing of the OrcOgres and I took 1200pts of Ogres (The giant ironblaster was an actual giant!) and the Aracknarock was my OnG ally (we bent the rules to 25% no character required).

The game was a lot of fun and looked really cool with the club terrain but unfortunately we only got 2 turns in so I wont bother with a battle report so here is a bucket of pictures lol!

Arack-na-Horn Completed!!!

So last night was a late night lol! Powered through and finished my Arack-na-Horn (OrcOgre Stonehorn!) painting up Frodo and the Ogre rider very late (currently operating on 3 hours sleep and a litre of coffee….). Really happy with how this came out and hopefully will make a nice centre piece for the army along with the Giant Ironblaster! I might just do a bit of touch up on the metal and cloth as I am not 100% happy with it J.

Well after what feels like 10 straight nights in a row of very late painting I’m taking a weekend break and won’t be doing anything til Sunday night so next post should be up Tuesday/Wednesday next week.

Let me know what you think guys!
