I am thinking about starting a new Fantasy army...
so far I have Empire, Dogs of War and Dark Elves.
I want to do something different- and played with the idea of skaven for a long while.
Sadly I dont really have the time to paint up millions of the little buggers...
So I thought about shooty ogres!
I really like the Ogre Ironblaster model with the rhino and the Stone Age feel of the army.
In addition, I was looking for a real change in my play style to spice up my motivation again.
So instead of a lot of infantry and cavalry as in my other armies
(or the traditional empire gun line, where I just sit back and wait for them to come...)
I am looking for a shooty ogre army!
Being able to deal death from afar but also being able to strike hard in close combat--
Sounds like a great way of change in my play style!
I thought I start out with a Batallion box, 2 Ironblasters, a Tyrant and a Firebelly (for magic),
and maybe some extra boxes of bulls and Ironguts.
The gnoblars that come in the boxes as extras I will use for an additional unit of gnoblars.
From another project I already have a unit of Leadbelchers which I just based and need to be painted in the new colours.
As a paint scheme I am thinking of something similar to the ogre army in the March White Dwarf.
I would love to give them a "Ice and Fire" theme- so bright colours and flames and flame tattoos,
and based on ice and snow bases (similar to the lichen and snow bases I made for my INFINITY armies).
Camp Fire unit filler (WIP)
And here are some of my INFINITY miniatures on the snow bases (for which I mix PVA with snow flock and sparkly kids paint):
