Here is my current project for my Ogres.

My Inspiration.

The project becoming realised.

The first one so far.

Number two...

Number three...

The process isn't that difficult, it just takes a bit of time and effort.

I will hopefully be able to figure out how to do the dreadlocks before the weekend.

Hey, hey, it's angry tridactyl monkeys..... with guns....


It's been a while and I was supposed to have put up a post with more Napoleonic goodies in it. Instead I have been painting some Infinity models pink and purple.

Here is a badly taken group shot photo. I do have another Morat model, but he came with a wrong piece. I'm going to bug Corvus Belli about that.

First off here are three Morat Vanguard Infantry. These guys are nothing too special. They have above average close combat ability and average shooting. these are pretty much used as cheerleaders (that is providing orders for the rest of the force). Although at 16pts each they are expensive in that regard.

Nest are the Kurgat Assault Engineers. The mammoth cannon is a portable autocannon. Damage 15, burst 2, AP+EXP. If the Kurgat can hit with it not many things are getting up again. A shame that they look very heavily armoured, but aren't.

Daturazi Witch Soldiers are rather juicy. Close combat orientated nutjobs with smoke grenades. I really need two more for two reasons. First off they are cheap. The cheapest model is only 14pts and secondly they can be formed into a link team.

Yaogat Strike Infantry. HERE COME THE VISORS!!! High close combat skill, above average ballistic skill, good armour, can be linked, multi-spectral visor level 2.... These guys are obnoxious. Shame that everyone else knows that and tries to kill them first if they are on the table.

Skiavoros, I've not played him yet, but he looks good. Plasma rifle option, and I do love this weapon. Can also be the lieutenant. Not too expensive either. I wish I could take more than one.

Finally the Anathematic. Not a TAG, but you could class him as a light TAG over the Heavy Infantry that he is. He is lots of fun to play with due to total optical camouflage, plasma rifle, valour: no wound incapacitation... You can stomp around the enemy lines with relative impunity unless visors appear. He also has a mono-filament weapon for ripping through things in close combat.

I am liking the change from Pan Oceania. I still have something similar to the Knightly Order's religious rule (I won't run away. You have to kill all of us), and high close combat skill (although I've never got into close combat. EVER). the changes are I get different shinies. If I don't go Morat Aggression Force I can include the Anathematic and the Skiavoros which gives me access to plasma and even a sepsitor. I have also had the chance to paint an obnoxious paint scheme.

Overall they are a lot of fun, but I need some jump infantry for them.

Hopefully I'll throw up another post soon.
