Hey all,

It's been a rough couple weeks, but it's finally done! Thanks to those that followed my (admittedly meager this year) blog.

So here is my Monty Python and the Holy Grail themed Ogres. I would now rest a bit but I still have yet to do the team tournament army...

Army display:

Black Knight BSB:

King Arthur:

Sir Lancelot:

Sir He Who Carries the Image of the Angry Ogre God (formerly known as Sir Not Appearing in This Army):

We're Knights of the Round Table!

We dance when'er we're able!

You've got two coconuts and you're bangin' 'em together!

Sir Bedevere:

Sir Galahad:

Sir Robin:

A witch!:

We shall use my larger scales:

Message for you sir:


The maidens of castle Anthrax:


Killer Rabbit!

The Holy Hand Grenade:

The Extras:

Livestock Catapult (Yes it is a cow! You're a looney.):


Trojan Stonehorn:

Until next time!

Very nice work. I like the display a lot. It's done great and I see there has been loads of work gone into. (wich I respect a great deal) and on top of that I think the paintwork is awesome too.

Very impressing and inspiring, kind regards Daniel

That is just stunning. Im blown away by the high level of presentation. Its just so awesome. The theme is mad too, like one of those ideas that seems good down the pub...but then youve done it so well. The amry is awesome in its own right, but the display base as well just lifts it to another level. I hope you win some prizes with this army.

That rabbit is dynamite! With big, sharp, pointy teeth !? In all seriousness, I gotta say great theme, very well painted, and faithful to the source material. I love Tim and the trojan Stonehorn. All around an A+ army. Great display as well.

Wow! I lol'd at the "Banner of the Army" and "the Extras" Also very cool trojan stonehorn! Loving the ideas!

"As I looked into its dead black eyes, I saw the terrible sentience it had in place of a soul. Behind that was the steel will of its leader. Further still I could feel its primogenitor coldly assessing me from the void. And looking back from the furthest recesses of the alien's mind... I can only describe it as an immortal hunger. It is this we cannot kill."

Ni-ce job.

Seriously though; freakin' epic army and work all-round man, beautifully painted and converted with great references to one of my favourite movies.

"As I recall, your face was tortured. Imagine that - the Master of the Wolves, his ferocity twisted into grief. And yet you still carried out your duty. You always did what was asked of you. So loyal. So tenacious. Truly you were the attack dog of the Emperor. You took no pleasure in what you did. I knew that then, and I know it now. But all things change, my brother. I'm not the same as I was, and you're... well, let us not mention where you are now."
