Yes, I have a few - but I have a few projects!

The Ogre Kingdoms were my first Fantasy army since I 'got back into' wargaming. Unfortunately I wasn't really confident at all of my abilities in playing - I had half a dozen games of 4th Edition under my belt and little else. This paranoia, and the fact that I'd also always wanted to do a Skaven army set me off on the wrong track. But the Great Maw is calling, and I must obey!

I bought the Ogre Kingdoms Battalion, and a Butcher, which surprisingly can give me the following 1250pt army:



Butcher, Bangstick, Dispel Scroll
Butcher, Halfling Cookbook
4 Ironguts, Full Command
3 Ogre Bulls, LA, Ironfist
3 Ogre Bulls, LA, Ironfist
3 Leadbelchers
25 Gnoblars
25 Gnoblars


So far, I've got one Bull painted to the standard I want for my R&F:

A butcher converted from a spare leadbelcher, some GS and a butcher arm:

And lastly, converted the 'proper' butcher with a Bellower head and ork iron-gob. (surprising what such a simple headswap can do for the looks of a model!)

I'm going to be using my Skaven Slaves as Gnoblars until I can bear to paint that many little gits, as you can see from this link:

Next up - another two bulls for the first Bull Regiment. I'll keep you posted!

Not too shabby. Although you're going to want to revise your list, you need a bruiser to be your general (Hunters and Butchers can't)

Really? Crap. I thought it was just Armybuilder being a cow.
