I've been a franatic ogre player ever since they were relesed in 05 but dont have that many modells as i sold my gnoblars and lost my ultraconverted tyrant T.T
But now i'm back on track and wanted to show my army, wich is embarrsingly not painted, heres a short list of what i have:
Bruiser BSB
8 bulls w ironfists and command
9 ironguts (a standard bearer dissapered had two 5 squads before)
6 leadbelchers
3 Maneaters (will be converted Yay! )
And an old school slave giant! slightly converted Soon painted

Not a very impressive force but thinking of making a new tyrant out of a spare body i've found and also a butcher out of a spare belcher (had 7 but didnt like that number) and i hope that the people who reads this will appreciate it and enjoy
and now ending with a litlle short story;

The giants furious blow threw Wyggat into the mountain wall, he felt his back rioting in pain and forced himself on his feet.
This one's a fiesty fellow! he thought with a smile and retrived his swords from the ground. But he was Wyggat! he wouldnt go down this easily and screamed from the gut, charging the beast gut-first.
The blow scraped the giants leg long enough for Wyggat to slam his head in the middle region of the giant. The Thing moaned in pain and let of a kick in Wyggats direction wich the tyrant evaded while laughing. Taking the opportunity, Wyggat smashed his swords flat sides on the balancing leg and got the giant tumbling down to the ground.
Wyggat then jumped up on the belly of the beast and gave him a double knucklesandwich to the face and lett out a pleasant grin across his face. I gots me a good idea what to do with ya now.. hur hur hur....

painting of the giant going slooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow and will paint the regular "boring" core choise bulls first instead,
the paint scheme will be imperial, one side white the other red. think it 'll look good?
i still feel a litlle wierd about the tyrant/bruiser/general should i do somethin more on him or will he look better when painted and tatooed?
(P.S every single model will have tatooes)

I'd like to see more but your pictures are not good, there is light behind or to the side of the models, throwing them into shadow.

Your paymaster's hat is fun, you should paint him in tartan with a hat like that, it looks scottish!

With the red and white, you may need to use a foundation paint for each, currently they aren't holding pigment very well (and the white is partially pink).

Of course, as an American, that means I must say that soccer sucks, and football (real football... you know, the one where you do everything with your hands) is 10,000 times as good. I mean, football players could probably beat up soccer players, even, because they actually know sports.

Hi! I do really like your ogres - they look quite brutal! Using an ogreĀ“s head for the giant is a very good idea; it makes him look more in line with the rest of the army.
The maneater looks like somebody who would sell you a meatpie in a small alley - maybe a trick...

And, yettthhh, it doeth live, mathter...!

Blessed be the mind that is too small for doubt!
