I finished this single piece to ends the content of the Ogres Leadbelchers box, which contains 4 figures. In KoW 4 is a bad number for Ogres, you can rank 3 or 6.. so the remaining figure should be something different to a Boomer. I converted the figure, changing gun’s arm position, with some green stuff, cut here, cut there..
Base is made with cork fragments.
Some work is done with airbrush, as i’m trying to practice, a mixed technique airbrush/brush.
Although i don’t dislike the result i prefer the skin tone used in the Boomers. Anyway was interesting to try a different skin tone.
28mm – Games Workshop – Ogre Kingdoms Leadbelchers (KoW Boomers)
I purchased these guys to reinforce my Kings of War human army, but in the forthcoming V.2 i can only carry them as allies, it haves his benefits, although this concrete unit, Boomers, is beings restructured and they will not be so brutes as they were. Anyway i enjoyed a lot painting these, i used airbrush for the ogre’s skin, applying base coat and two highlights. I need to improve such technique a lot, but i like result, it’s the first time. Anyway i don’t feel confidence enough to apply it on nothing smaller than these ogres.. so. These are my first Ogres ever, but also my first Goblins, Red Goblins, as they should be because they are Ogre’s slaves… that say KoW rules.
To my taste, these ogres depict better the Boomers description than the Mantic Ogres themselves…
Hope you like them too.
Just one figure, painted for a job partner’s son, who recently comes into Warhammer 40K World.
I don’t know much about this troops, they are part of the imperial army, and no more.
Painted following the excellent article form GW here.
Something totally different for year’s begin. First time i paint GW minis, and also first time i paint something bigger than 1/72.
I enjoyed a lot painting this, they are from my cousin (ten years younger), i took them this Christmas but i forget to pick up a shield for the infantry man…
There is a notable size difference against 1/72, i have used some tutorials at GW site, i make some mistakes with shield and lance of the horse man, so much better result can be achieved with those items, but finally i’m more or less gladded with result. They look fine for me, thinking it’s my first time. The worst, these high elves have a lot of white, which is one of the colours i’m always afraid to use and never get a good result.
I felt the temptation to paint the whole boxes, but i have some many pending work with 1/72… i wasted three days painting these ones (about 10 hours, including time looking the tutorials) i first paint the infantry man, after this, everything gone quickly.
Size differences are also remarkable taking pictures, although this is also because my cam isn’t very good to take close to 1/72, but enough for this ones as pictures shows.
For first time i was capable to paint eyes (i know, they are not great eyes.. but)… still i think i can’t done on 1/72…
I will appreciate any comment from an experienced painter with GW minis… !!
