These Ogres are larger than the older Ral Partha designs. They would probably classify as giants in the 1970s and 1980s. Yes I have Ogres from that period and you will see just how large they are compared to those. However, despite their size they work remarkably well with the 1990s Ral Partha Fantasy Armies Ogre line. The differences can be explained away with plausible excuses: different Ogre families (hill vs mountain), genetic variation, exposure to Chaos energies, wicked sorcery....whatever.
The figures below are not the whole Ogre line by Reaper. I only painted Bob's stuff, and two models by Ben Siens, since his style is similar to Bob's. These guys could serve in Warhammer as Tyrants, Bruisers, Ogre Maneaters, or even as Standard Bearers in regular units (rally around the tall guy fellas!).
|The Reaper Miniatures Ogres|
My method of priming has remained the same:
- airbrush the whole model in Tamiya German Grey.
- at a 45 degree angle airbrush the model in Tamiya Deck Tan.
Lets get into the individual models now.
|Vourgha the Ogre by Reaper Miniatures|
The wolf pelt was done in Stormcover Grey, washed with highly diluted black, then dry brushed with Ritterlich Blue.
|Orankar, Ogre Boss|
|I don't think Wilbur will be talking to Charlotte for awhile|
|Hill Troll, by Ben Siens|
Filtch takes his lunch too. The boar was done with the Soil Color triad.
|Garnuk, the Ogre|
Garnuk was done the same as everyone else. He likes his club. It will be used.
|Garnuk works out! Look at that back.|
|Gurm, Reven Monster|
|Gurm likes his thong. Check out my warty ass.|
Next up will be a blast from the past: Ral Partha Ogres from the 70s and 80s.
