Hello people of the miniature world. It’s time to go bigger.
Our good friend and Guru Azazel has put out a challenge of sorts.
See here –
Basically paint something BIG over December and January, hence the very clever Decemb-uary. No smaller than an Ogre at least.
For my centrepiece I’ve gone with a Stonehorn from BeastClaw raiders. I’ve liked them since they came out.
I’ve never really been in to Ogres but I think that’s just changed. The beast and the rider (Frostlord) are awesome.
This is the largest model I’ve built and I’ve got to say it’s really, really cool. So much detail and it all went together quite easily.
I was feeling a little bit overwhelmed at the thought of putting this big bastard together but the motivation to take part in the painting challenge was key.
Now to paint. Wow! As is my way I’m not going for the white frosty look. I’m going to go for a more wooly mamoth type look but not like Manny from Ice Age haha.
As far as the mournfang critters that came in the “start collecting” box I won’t be mounting them with Ogres as I think the riders look too big and silly on the small animals.
I’ve got something else planned for the Mournfangs.
Im in love with the model below
The only negative I had with this model was the extremely thing rope thing displaying his trophies. It snapped in three places before I even got it off the sprue so that’s why there’s a body hanging instead haha. I like it, prefer it actually.
Peace out civillians
