This log will be about my Warhammer Fantasy Ogre army. This is my first ever tabletop army, though I have painted some figures before. I really want to get into gaming with these (finally).
My goal for this army is to make them look awesome, yet not too flashy (blue silk trousers on an human-eating ogre? No ty.) and they also need to be sturdy enough to play with them without having the risk of them falling appart ( so no crazy basing). The army itself has to also be able to win games. OK is kind of a middle class army atm, i'd like to make the list as good as it can be.
I chose OK because the models are so big. I always try to perfect my miniatures (sadly, I cant just speedpaint an army and not feel terrible anout it) so an army with a large amount of models would be near impossible for me to finish. Besides that I also like their looks alot. Savage meat eating, beer drinking giants, HELL YEAH.
There is one thing I didnt like about them though. In my opinion, a savage ogre should be bald/near bald. So thats why I sculpt hair and beards on all my models. I also give them full sleeve tribal tattoos.
The first model I finished is my completely converted tyrant. I didn't like the GW model that much, so I kinda made it my own with some greenstuff. This is my first big conversion ever, so I hope you like it!
Next up will be a unit of two leadbelchers. I already finished one of them, starting the second one tomorrow. I know leadbelchers aren't great, but I wanted them in my 500pts list so I can experience the shooting phase aswell. Me and my brother are both working on our warhammer fantasy armies, he is doing Tomb Kings. We are doing a game every 250 pts we paint and build up our armies slowly like that, so we can really learn them. I know 500pts is an akward point level to start in WHF, but we are too excited to wait untill 750
My 500 pts list:
3 bulls + additional handweapons
501 pts total
