I went in a little heavy on Bones 2 as well as MA, and I should be getting a pair of their Grey alien dudes' flying saucers. Their stock pilots will be getting kicked out and replaced with spare martian pilots (of which I should have... five?) giving me a total fleet of 5 saucers

Heck.. that kind of makes me want to go find an appropriately sized retro robot looking toy and clean it up to paint in the same scheme as my big stompy

Just about finished all my Forgefathers and really pleased how they turned out. There are some missing from the photo-shoot, but even stunties get camera shy! Any C&C's would be most welcome :-) Neal

Cheers, competition I'm in had freehand as the monthly challenge, seemed like a good idea

The paint is AK Interactive True Metal Dark Aluminium, polished as best as I was able. It like to spread itself everywhere via your fingers if you aren't careful, but gives a great finish.

Pretty cool. Blue skin tone is an interesting direction but it works.

Mine are a similar tone (the whole two I've painted). Shadow grey, to be precise. I love that look for ogres!!

Reality is a nice place to visit, but I'd hate to live there.

Those guys are pretty creepy looking, and they aren't even the blood sucking kind. The colors are nice, not a fan of the Xbox per se, but they really work for the bases and ball.

And their ball. No idea why I did it like this, as I don't even like basketball, but I really enjoyed painting this!

My first KoW army, first members of it



Mantica Ogres are from the Mammoth Steppe, separating the rest of Mantica from the frozen wastelands in the north. I pictured it as being a little like the Eurasian Steppe crossed with the Dothraki Sea, so it's normal grass but grows tall and as far as the eye can see barring odd islands of trees, which is why the Ogres are so big, and why they dominate the steppe - it's too tall for humans and elves to fight in on foot, but just short enough for Ogres to fight on foot, while still being tall enough for them to hide in for hunt and ambush. In my head the grass is about 6" tall, because Ogres in the fluff are "twice the size of men".

My Ogres are 4 different reds (VMC Carmine Red, VMC Sunset Red, Reaper HD Garnet Red, Minitaire Innards) all washed in SW Purple, and there's a possibility I'll pick a darker red again for when I get to Grokagamok and other heroes. The middle rear warrior is different than the others, because he was a test paint to pick a scheme that I did last year, and I didn't want to bother stripping him to match the leathers and clean off his muddy skin.

I made the grass very uneven, gave the shooters and boomers thick grass to shoot from on the flanks, gave the warriors thinner grass because cavalry has already been through it, and the giants stomped all theirs down already.

Giants are Reaper Bones Hill Giants, bases are movement trays from Back2base-ix

I've got some big plans for the future with 3rd party bitz and minis alongside the rest of my Mantic Ogres

Looking good I like the red you've picked for the ogres, and the grass on the bases is pretty sweet!

Now that I've seen how they scale with ogres... I really need to get those hill giants sometime after they hit retail. Almost got them during the campaign but I was overloaded as it was.

Dumb luck for me, but those giants really suit the Ogre aesthetics, as well as being the size I wanted.

Thanks guys,
The blue armor is a wash wich i put on them 3 times so the blue color would stick.
The Plague guys were also 'washed' and i really wanted them to look like bad news.
Bonestructures on the Big-guy were done with a white paint first and washed with a sepia wash.
Furthermore about the bone structure, i was winging the places on the body, looking at some pictures and from that just areas i thought looked good with bone.
The blue color for the Enforcers was chosen because i wanted them to be like an intergallactic Law Enforcement Agency, not specificly used by the Council but operating as an independant body within the sphere.
(i wanted to make them operate as the Brasilian special police B.O.P.E, but i chose blue as color instead of black)
Those guys are tough as nails and are trained under harsh conditions.
Furthermore, i will use my Enforcers as a Multi-taskforce.

Not seeing anything? I will check back for edits. I hope to knock out a couple of KoW units soon, myself. I have a hundred and ten ideas, just need time lol. Figured out a way to do multi bases with some minis removable (for dnd or to slot in characters to represent magic items etc...) So I'm looking to knock out some units.
