Since the forum reorg turned this into a Kings of War only board, and the combined Mantic paint thread that catered for KoW stuff has been moved to the Misc games board, I figured I'd restart it here with my newest from the last thread

Ogre Captain on 'chariot', which is a DeeZee woolly rhino, with a magnetised arm to switch between shield and crossbow







And here's the rest of the army that's been completed to date

May as well show off mine.

Since this I have added a few things like a cool asian dragon and some phoenix but the basis of the army is here.

Spoiler:


Was incredibly cheap to do,only took a few weeks to paint up and build. Used as basileans they absolutely kick ass.

That's a great looking pair of armies. The Japanese are amazing. Are they the WGF models?

What are the large reaper models in the Ogre army used as? Giants?

I agree, those Japanese minis are really cool

Yep, those Reaper Hill Giants are being used as Giants, and to me it was good fortune that their clothes and shoulder pauldrons really matched up visually with the Mantic Ogres. I certainly didn't buy them in the KS with that in mind!

Wow! I'm just starting my Ogres army using old GW Minotaurs. I love the scenic quality of the assembled armies and how we can use slightly less minis to make the units thus freeing up the base for decoration. Coming from 40k for eleven years that's very refreshing from a hobby aspect.

That's an awesome looking army of Undeads, Gromgor. Nice work!

A very clever unit of goblins, NT. Looks like the sneaky gobboes have had a touch of Dutch courage before the fight?

Yep! The second regiment I'm doing right now is working on the vittles, while the proposed third will continue the wagon train, and fourth I'm not sure yet, tents are a possibility.

Thanks Azazelx, I'm still working on getting the rest of the miniatures finished and painted, I've got something close to 4,000 points once it's all said and done, and I still have a couple of boxes to assemble, too. Hoping to get some epic looking battles in once it's all put together and painted.

-Robert that's a cool ethereal effect you've got going on, any chance of a quick rundown as to how you got it to work both with the purple and the green?

Upped some ogre regiments into Siegebreaker hordes. You may argue that there aren't enough ogres. You cannot argue that they don't have a big shield.

Can you tell which unit has the amulet of thorns?

I'm hugely impressed you've got such nice looking red goblin units out of the mantic goblin archers. I've got some of those and they are really awful minis.

Got me a few plastic dinosaurs at Wingham wildlife park over the weekend. I'll be adding my old skink handlers and making a counts-as Rhinosaur Ancients horde with them. Because stampeding dinosaurs.

Thanks! I'm not a great painter, but I think the secret with those Goblins is:

  • Don't go looking for detail that isn't there

  • Pick a few good, contrasting block colours

  • Make liberal use of washes to grab what detail there is

  • Have a good multibase theme

  • Then let the mass of them together at tabletop distance, and the story the base theme tells, fill in the gaps in your visual experience

    My Abyssal Dwarfs, they took a day to paint (extensive use of directional spray painting). The bases took a little longer .

    Very nice. I can't wrap my mind around the idea of directional spray painting, but you make it work.

    The golems were sprayed red all over, then metallic black from a distance from the front / back and then bronze straight down. All golems were painted very, very quickly .

    The gargoyles were sprayed black all over, grey from a distance from frost / back and then a very light spray of white straight down, they were finished with a purple wash on the wings and a purple dot for each eye.

    The only stuff painted properly were the halfbreeds, werewolves(allies from v1 kow), and the 2 heroes.

    Figured I'd jump on the Ogre Army bandwagon and start up my own horde. Figured I'd go a different route, though, and do a swamp base instead.

    Sorry for late reply. Very simple - white undercoat, wash with green or purple, gloss varnish! Base. The darker purple guys were black undercoat, white dry brush, purple wash, gloss varnish. Quick and easy, and I like how they have come out.

    Would terrain made for Mantic stuff count? I've got a lot of ruined medieval city terrain I'm working on atm I could post.

    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.

    These aren't Mantic models, and I debated whether or not I should post these pics here as I usually post them elsewhere, but since this army was literally raised, bought and painted for use in KoW - and everyone else has non-Mantic minis all over the place, I'm showing off my Gondor (Kingdom of Men) army so far.



    This is essentially a "State of the Army" post, showing off all of the completed elements of my Gondor Army at present, which I've been properly working on over the last two or so years, with a bigger focus during the last 6 months and the painting challenge that I keep harping on about. Models that aren't yet completed are missing from the photos, so things like the Cavalry units that are part-painted will have to wait for an update down the line. While I don't intend to buy any more Gondor models, with the possible exception of any new heroes that GW might release or the odd figure to "clean up" and finalise a more difficult unit (Men at Arms of Dol Amroth, Warriors of Arnor etc) I've got all of the models for this army in my possession. I just need to paint them!



    The army is set up as a Kings of War force, but obviously can be used in LotR SBG, or with a few tweaks in War of the Ring (those bloody bases!) We've even used a small number of them in SAGA. Most Minas Tirith/Gondor models generally aren't very exciting at all as individuals, even with a decent amount of work put into them, but they do have a nice effect ranked up en masse.

    I'm not up for a lot of typing right now, so I think I'll go with more of a "show, don't tell" for the rest of this post.

    If it's made for KoW, then sure, why not? Stick a KoW unit nextto it in a photo just to be sure though
