Imagine the feeling when you position your tanks, engines idling, landing gear deployed for a low profile, with firing solutions along a key bottleneck. Then some fether lands a dreadnought behind them in a giant heat shielded coke can.

I know that feeling! I've gotten to play 8 games in total, by driving about 90 minutes north in the wee hours of the morning to reach two tournaments that were run by a club up there.

I had the same idea of using wooly rhinos for the ogre chariots but I wasn't sure if the size of the rhino models would be right. You seem to have pulled it off beautifully! Good job!
I'll post some of my Ogres too. I still haven't based them, as you can see... I don't have pics of my Basileans yet, unfortunately.

I am thinking of either ice or snow, or some very short vegetation, tundra-like. It will have to wait for a couple more months though, as my work doesn't leave me any time now, I'm afraid.

Yeah the DeeZee woolly rhinos fit very nicely on the 50x100 chariot base, as does the Acheson Creations mammoth. I also have a DeeZee mammoth, and Acheson Brontotherium, Paraceratherium, and Deinotherium that fit just nicely too.

I like your weapon swaps! Blue Ogres with snow bases could make a good themed allies army with the evetual northern alliance force too

Thanks! Maybe you recognize most weapons pieces from WHFB Orcs & Goblins! And of course, the Night Goblin Fanatic's ball and chain!
By the way NT do you think the chariot would also fit on the 50x100 base behind the rhino, if I put it in place of the 2 boars, or does the rhino take up too much space?

The rhinos are 65mm from front foot to rear foot, and that leaves about 17mm of rhino head and horn overhanging the front on the straight one, less on the turned head one.

You could certainly fit some kind of chariot behind it, in a tight fit, but not the Mantic chariot. Definitely check all the laser cut MDF places for carts, buggies and such if you want to stick with it.

My leaders et to ride the big animals, but for my regular chariots I'm planning to replace the boars with smaller prehistoric animals from Acheson - I have 2 each of the Steppes Bison, Daedon, and Aurochs, planning to make one animal to a chariot, and as soon as I get some reliable measurements, probably the Japanese style ox or hand carts from 4Ground.

Acheson makes two different Rhinos, Coelodonta and Elasmotherium, which are priced the same as the Bison/Aurochs/Daedon, but I can't vouch for their size.

I was looking at those right now actually. Thanks! The Brontotherium is not bad either, although i still would prefer something with fur.

Brontotherium is big by the way - it still fits on the chariot base lengthwise, but it's twice the width of the woolly rhinos, and a good 15mm or so taller. It's got real presence, and I plan for it to be my Warlord's ride, as opposed to the captain on the smaller rhino.

I can take a bunch of side by side for scale photos with all my prehistoric animals if you want?

If it's not too much trouble, it would be very helpful, thanks! I couldn't easily make out the relative size of the animals and Ogres, and that's what's kept me from ordering something before.

Sticking them in a spoiler cause they're mostly not painted (also big images ) DZ for DeeZee, everything else Acheson

Left to right: Paraceratherium, Deinotherium, Mammoth #1, Mammoth bellowing (DZ), Brontotherium, Woolly Rhino trotting (DZ), Woolly Rhino charging (DZ), Aurochs, Steppe Bison, Daedon, Ogre Standard Bearer

Spoiler:











Also, in case that sort of thing bothers you, it was pointed out to me elsewhere that the Acheson Paraceratherium is based on an image now considered ahistorical, as more recent studies of the minuscule amount of fossil discoveries have produced a creature looking more like a giant Tapir than a giant long necked Camel.

Thanks NT! You were right, the Brontotherium is huge! The rhinos are a nice size, if I end up using a chariot (probably with some conversion), I will surely use them. And the Acheson Mammoth looks really good too.
Are you going to use the Paraceratherium somewhere in the Ogres army?

Np! Acheson has a wealth of really nicely done animal sculpts, for those leaning away from more fantastical creatures in a given army, and DeeZee has some good ones too.

Yep, Paraceratherium is going to be an ogre army standard bearer on chariot, and Deinotherium is going to be a mammoth armed with a ballista. The DeeZee mammoth, I dunno, maybe another normal? I added it to my ebay order without a real reason.

This is my second “State of the Army” post, this time showing off all of the completed elements of my (Marouda’s) Undead Army at present. Like the Gondor army, I’ve been working on it on and off over the last two or so years, with a recent push during the last 6 months and the painting challenge. I’ve kept Undead on as one of my main options for the second half of 2016, though I’ve opened up my options quite a bit as painting mostly Gondor and Undead got very old by the end. The Undead aren’t so bad though, as there’s actually quite a lot of variety in there, especially when you combine “Vampire Counts”, “Tomb Kings” and even the spectral elements of Lord of the Rings in general and Mordor specifically.



These photographs were taken during the same session as the Gondor Army showcase photos, so there has been a little more movement on these undead since then, specifically the unit base I put together for the trio of Nazgûl. I've also gotten a couple more swarms done (but not yet varnished and photographed.)



The Barrow-Wights in the front row need to have a new unit base built for them as Mantic first Squatted them in KoWII before a protest from players (and with myself as one of the first, if not the first in the departed Beta forums) caused them to be reinstated, though now they’re “Large Infantry” with 40mm bases. I’m not going to rebase my LotR SBG figures, so I’ll be making a – hopefully slightly interesting and imposing – multibase for them. My first failed attempt already sits abandoned on my painting desk.

Also claiming backstory

A creature seldom seen in the young kingdoms, the Great Rhino is perfectly adapted for life on the Mammoth Steppe. Their long necks allow them to reach the juiciest leaves at the tops of the tallest trees, and spot approaching predators from afar; their long legs allow them to easily walk over the tall grass, moving between the island-like woods that dot the steppes with less effort than a shorter creature forced to push through the dense grass, with the added bonus of not leaving a trench of crushed grass for predators to follow. The Ogres have long recognised the gifts of this creature - the Strider of the Grass Sea in their tongue - and senior Ogres, with their long serving (and surviving) Red Goblin retinue, will utilise them to carry loot and pay back into the Steppe with a strength and speed no wagons can match. When the entire clan is called to war, this otherwise gentle beast often finds a use as well - carrying the largest of the army standards and signals, at a majestic height visible to the entire clan


Backstory needs about 5 rewrites and 3 editors, but that's what I get for leaving it until the last second

Slow painter and assembly-line painting the parts then assembling after painting.

Models are from the Mantic Orcs Army set, and paints from the Army Painter Greenskins Paint Set.

I wonder how well the upcoming Mantic Terrain Crate will work as basing and other material!

"And while I'm forgiving of one mishap, this string of incidences suggests the problem is with the project managers, not whom they hire, what materials they are using, what language their backers are using, etc. I do notice that entrepreneurs have more self-confidence than other people, and need it to persevere bad luck and obstacles. But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

I bought some of them ages ago when they were first released and they will a real pain to clean up and construct, quite poor casting. I did hear they had some problems with them. I wondered if you had bought some recent ones, and if the later ones have improved at all?
