Lovely firstborn, just lovely!
Ogryns eh? Will they be wearing large fur hats and moustaches?

Looking very nice mate.
I hadn't thought of Vostroyan Ogryns..
Have to add some now
And I really don't want to think about the reproductive habits of Ogryns. Let's leave that to the warped minds of 4Chan...
Ohhh look what the mailman just brought me.
Armoured might! Yeahhhh.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6...
Alright, some WIP pics. Last night I finished building the baneblade and I sculpted a shako on the tank commander to tie him in with the Vostroyans.
And here is the specialist squad with three snipers. Also sculpted a shako on one of the snipers to distinguish him from the same model. These are more or less my first greenstuff sculpts ever (apart from filling up holes and tiny errors), and I'm pretty satisfiedd with the result. I can actually sculpt! W00t.
Also recently finished is the Platoon Command Squad, just have to put snow on their bases. Pictures will follow this evening I suppose.
Now I'm off to build and convert the Leman Russes - they'll be equiped with KV-2 tank turrets (or Ragnarok pattern, whatever you want to name it) - inspired by Tinners scratchbuilt tanks (see the Imperial Guard treadhead topic). Thanks for the inspiration! :-)
Been working on the first KV-2 inspired Leman Russ today, here is a WIP pic. Still a lot of work to be done, but the basic shape is there. I kinda like it.
C&C please? :-)
I L-O-V-E the green scheme, and the sculpting looks awesome, well done! keep up the decent work!
But alas, the giraffe is also the gayest animal in the zoo.
"Religion... Piss it," Stephen Fry.
Ghosts+marines?! that can't be right!
Great snow bases. They actually look cold!!
KV2 turret look too big. Sorry I do not like it in this case
I think I agree with holycrusader:
I think the turret is a bit to high. Somehow it seems dimensions are off.
All IMHO off-course

here is a kv-2 :
i think you sould better start your kv-2 on a modified basilisk body, just like this one, made by someone on a french forum :
it's lower than the standard one, but keeps the ig style. if you extend a little bit the body, i think you will have a perfect kv-2 for 40k.

Thanks for the criticism. I have lowered the turret by 0.5cm and I'm pretty satisfied with the results. IMHO it doesn't look too big anymore.
Please remember that these are still WIP's. I'm not too sure about the searchlight, what do you think?
Painting will start this weekend. This will be done by airbrush, in a camo scheme similar to to this:
thats a great looking camo scheme there, can't wait to see it on your baneblade adn KV 2russes. I also like ur sculpted shako's there, very cool!
WOW, cool russes, they look like ragnorak pattern leman russes! so cool! and the snow bases are...um...COOL...aswell, gedit.

Pretty cool looking army so far. Love your ogryns. May keep an eye on this
Heres an article you might find helpful. http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...royan5th/2.htm
Very similar to your design. I think some rivets and separate armor plates would really spruce up the turret.
Disdaining Fortune,with his brandish'd steel,
Which smok'd with bloody execution
Like Valor's minion carv'd out his passage
I just discover your army!
Great paint and great snow effect!
If not too late, it would be great to add shakos to the Ogryns. I'm sure they would like!
Regarding your KV2 conversion, I agree with Tancrede, the LR hull is too high but your turret looks good.
