In progress: Tyrant of the Ogre Kingdoms

How much do I love you? So much it's my birthday and I'm making a post just for you. In all the commotion what's really on mind is, as usual, painting. I just finished off the metals this afternoon..Possibly a coat of rust wash is in order but I like where he's going.

I should have him licked tomorrow pending a hangover. Stay tuned :)

Finished! One Imperial Guard Platoon

The Poor Bloody Infantry.

With the allies rule of 6th edition the Imperial Guard are working overtime.

I still have 18 heavy weapon teams and two Vendettas to go before this meatshield is done.

Ogre Kingdoms Tyrant WIP

Fattened on the gluttony of Thanksgiving the Tyrant is ready for paint. I've entirely sculpted the legs so don't look under his dress. I'm not the best of sculptors but we'll see how it takes some paint.

Finished! Uren's Son

I wrapped up this project over the weekend :) I tried some different things with the color choices in the shading and I'm happy the way it came out. The tattoos could use a little more attention but for now I like him the way he is.

Another thing to be happy about is I'm going to see Gwar tonight :D

Next up I double promise I'll show off the Ogre Tyrant before getting some paint on him.

Finished! Cockatrice from Baelor Miniatures

Release the chicken of war! After a little back and forth with the color choices I eventually arrived on a nice combination. 

You can get your very own Chickenosaur right here

Next up is an Ogre Kingdoms Tyrant I've been sculpting away on. Stay tuned :)

WIP Cockatrice

Round one with the chicken of death. Here he is with some airbrushing to get some colors rolling. I'm planning on making the green area on the ground a small swampy area..Not sure what the Cockatrice's natural habitat would be so maybe it  spends it's time harassing a trade route? With a little imagination everything fits.

I found this on a pretty cool site while searching for some reference material. Very cool stuff :)

Uren's Son WIP

Very slowly I'm able to work on projects for myself. For this one I've picked Uren's son from Rackham's Confrontation range. For this project I set a goal for myself to make things more interesting. Most of the time I'm limited for time based on how much I'm being paid so for this piece I told myself I'd spend a minimum of 30 hours on him. At this point I've hit the 16 hour mark.

We'll see where this goes. I still want to add tattoos and I wouldn't call anything really finished on him at this point.

A pair of big 'uns

Over the weekend and until this point I've been chipping away on an Imperial Guard detachment. 18 heavy weapon teams and 26 guardsmen...So far I've painted two colors..Tomorrow I'll paint one color..

Don't worry, I've been receiving some more interesting commissions too. The first one I'm going to tackle is an Orge Kindgoms Tyrant. To start I picked up a box of Ironguts, I don't know what I'll do to finish but it involves a lot of putty. Much more to sculpt on him but I'm going in a good direction.
