Hi everyone.

In the caverns of Mount Arrast, in the Northeast of the Ogre Kingdoms, rests a tribe of the most uncommon type. It all started when, more than 500 years ago, a group of dwarves led by Giloril, a famous brewer, penetrated the cold steppes of the Ogres kingdom. It is by introducing Giloril's famously strong beer to the Ogres that the dwarves made them strong allies. it is said that Giloril's beer is so sustaining and strong that the Ogres immediately revered its maker. From then, the Ogres of Mount Arrast have been fighting alongside Giloril and his friends in many battles and their alliance doesn't seem to be fading, at least as long as Giloril's recipe remains secret. You can immediately recognize Giloril's strongest beer by its big, white ''X'' marked on each barrel and mug. It is this mark that the Ogre tribe dwelling in the caverns of Mount Arrast took as its own to glorify the beer that makes them the lethal (and full-bellied) warriors they are.


It is the first few times I've sculpted so please shoot some commentaries and tips!!!

I think I like where this is going. The "slayer" Ogre looks awesome!

I like your models and particularly the story that goes with them. I was wondering if I could use this as a base for a parallel story about my rune lord? Once I have completed the draft I will PM it to you for your approval. Great stuff!

Thanks all for the kind words.

I wasn't very happy with the 2nd and 3rd Ogres (the belly especially) so I took them down and remade them. Pics will be up soon.

That's a funky idea! And the facial hair looks quite good for a first sculpting experience. At the moment, especially on the first ogre, the hair looks a bit too thick, but with time I'm sure you'll learn to make more detailed facial hair! :)

The slayer ogre is made of win by the way! :P

Great work, it's always cool to see ogres done like this or like different armies. You have done well with the slayer ogre, good stuff.

Hey everyone, thanks a lot for the comments.

I decided to completely overhaul my project so far. I rebuilt most of it, will repaint also, decided to scrap the hair of the bulls (not of the irongut-slayers obviously).

Will post pics soon!

The new pics are up. I hope you agree that they look better than the former ones. I removed the left guy's hair because I thought it looked real bad.

Well that would be my pleasure.

I got them from Ebay, here: http://www.ebay.ca/i...#ht_2244wt_1060

I also bought these: http://www.ebay.ca/i...49#ht_602wt_825

But haven't received the last ones so I can't vouch for them just yet.

Glad to be of any help.
