Painting blog – 2019 NAF GT Ogre team – part 2
Thanks to the suggestion from Wozzaa I bought myself a set of the Black Scorpion snotlings. They were of a very similar style to the GW 2nd edition ones I already had. I had been unsure about the amount of snotlings to take on the team as Ogres are one of the teams you usually want to max out to the full 16. I reasoned it would be rare to have less than 3 ogres on the team and so settled for 13 snots. These snots were very easy to clean up, which saved me a lot of time. I didn’t want to end up in a similar position as last year where I had to skimp on some items to get the team completed on time. I hadn’t been fully satisfied with the display base for the wood elf team in 2018 and think the treeman could have been better.

With the team fully assembled picking a colour scheme was the next thing to look at. I checked the previous teams I had done and saw that yellow was a colour I rarely used and thought that would go well with the ogres. The harder choice was what colours to match it with, silver was the obvious choice for the metallic parts, but I needed a “shade” for clothing along with secondary colours as decoration. I rejected white as being too clean, black to avoid looking like a bumblebee and brown since it was already being used for straps. This left grey, which was dwarf Warhammer colouring, but I liked that strip and went with that.

The first ogre I completed ended up looking a bit dull, I’d used grey for the scales on his back and a dirty yellow for the armour which had lots of large flat areas. The battle damage went some way to break this up but it still needed more. Looking through other models with yellow armour an obvious source were the Imperial Fists. They had some areas of red decoration I liked, the ogres got red scales along with some red bands on their shin guards, shoulder pads and gauntlets.



For the 2nd ogre I decided to give him a different skin tone. Over the years I have had a lot of practice painting bare skin for a variety of models. Mostly these have been pale European looking models, and I fancied trying out different skin tones. Normally for ogres I start with mid brown and then add tanned flesh to it and then pale flesh for the top highlights. For this guy I began with dark brown and added mid brown and then tanned flesh for the top highlights. The skin turned out well, but the red scales on his back stood out less as they were dark red.

This model had the skull gut plate from the new plastic ogre. It could have been painted silver as if it was made from metal, but I hadn’t been fully satisfied with how the silver has been turning out on my models. Instead I went with white, using a cold grey as the starting point. This ended up looking really good and I liked it so much that I decided to change the colour scheme to add more white. The should pads had featured mostly red and black, I ended up switching the white in for some of these. This also tied into the NAF better as the colours of the logo are red, black and white.



The next ogre was the final of the linemen, his skin was again painted differently, starting with a paint half way between mid and dark brown, then adding mid brown before using cadian flesh for the highlights. It ended up lighter than I intended, more resembling tanned barbarian flesh you’d expect on an ogre. The rest of him was painted in the same way as the other 2 players. I did give him a white glove in keeping with the new colour scheme and need to find a way to add this to the remaining players too. I think the metal parts worked out better for this model. The silver was mixed with grey and created a dirty looking metal appearance. This can be done with washes or glazes, but they end up looking too glossy.



I’m hoping the snotlings will be quick to paint and I can get them and the 3 remaining ogres completed before the end of March. This 3rd ogre was started on Fri evening and took a big chunk of my weekend to complete. I want to spend extra time on the stars, which means the cheerleader may get dropped and the display base might suffer. It could just be sand painted brown with some scrubby plants and pitch markings which would be pretty quick. I’d probably do the NAF symbol as carved rock again since that is quicker.

Does the winner get this team or is it the lottery

Really nice :)

I don't get that idea why those ogres have scales on their backs. Looks super weird.

Lottery nowadays. Odd, but there it is.

How cool would it be if a person from Fumbbl won that lottery!
