It's not that bad. Everyone on the internet argues you can't run Necro Knights 5 wide, yet I've been running them like that for years. Also, the idiots don't realise it's the same width as a horde unit. Funny, you see Horde Orcs, Beastmen, Lizards and Daemons all the time. Wink


Anyways, are you asking about drybrushing the grass flocking? Don't you dare do that. Also, if you look at most bases, you'll rarely see them completely flocked - which looks like a golf course. You'll see drybrushed sand/rock, with patches of grass to look more like tramped earth. Na mean?

As Don said pure static grass can often look a little off. Like you're invading the shire. More typical is a glue - sand - paint - static grass/flock effect. Google up some bases you like and you'll see. Bases are very quick and easy and can really amplify an army.

Thanks guys! I was noticing that more and more as I added more models to the unit. I have some sand id like to try and incorporate. Peel off some grass with a knifr and apply sand? Can I wash the sand in agrax earth or dont bother again? Its the GW sand

I like this look, it reminds me of some really lush scottish high lands. Maybe add the odd ruin and a patch here or there but I think it looks fine. Plus I know you will scrape off to much and regret it.

Don't peel off stuff. Once done it's done. If you want to mess around then do it moving forward, not backward.

You could run with Brian's idea and throw some darker colour rocks on there for contrast.

Hrm, thanks guys. Good ideas, I also don't like going backwards on my work so I'm going to use all 3 of your ideas. I will attempt more darker rocks or ruins within the existing grass and see if i can break up the grass on future bases. Appreciate guys

Ok so the way ive planned this was to have the basic ogres all standing on cork. but NOW with the changes we talked about I'm thinking maybe mix it up, every other one standing on the cork and the others standing flat with cork rock strewn on the base? i just dont want every other ogre to look way taller than the one next to it you know?

i would paint the inside of the cannons black, it should look better for shadowing and such, not to mention black powder leaves quite the residue. maybe even try and paint the ends black and feather it back a bit.

@ Don - Yeah really loving this army, and i have the perfect picture in my head about how i want them to look, i was actually up until 4 am on Friday and Saturday just because i like SUPER wanted to paint.

@ Dom - Yeah the guns were the last things drying so they havent event gotten a dry brush. But i've been wondering what to do about the soot and gunpowder. I bought a thing of DRY Abbadon Black i thought i might beable to flick over the model in spots to make it look more powdery ? Maybe?

@ Carson - Definitely not, I am purposely leaving 1 ogre in every unit only 50% painted and 50% bare plastic, just to prove a point about your stoopid painting points Smile even when i can get em I DON'T WANT EM! bahahaha. This is going to be fun guys, promise. My argument has never been to get free points, only to abolish them all together.

Idea, want to run it past you guys to see if i'm just wasting my time / making things more difficult.

So i kinda want my 2nd ogre bully unit to have different weapons than the swords the first unit has, the only other weapons are clubs but they are all left handed SHOULD I

Make the first unit RH Sword and LH Iron fist and then for the other unit do RH Iron Fist and LH Club? or just go with the swords to keep all my guys identical?

i have 2 days to decide until my new ogres get here lol


** i have more than enough bits for both

Good call, will post a test pic of the fig later, i'll do 1/10 just to see how i like it.

Update, i've repainted this friggen Frost Stonehorn like 4 times so far TONIGHT... just cant get happy with the friggen colour. Dont get me wrong i'm just doing the horns and fur, the big parts but so far ive done Ushabti Bone, Mournfang, Rhinox. Just not HAPPY! *eye twitch* the bulls just got primed and i like to let my primer sit for a day before i paint... unnecessary ?

Definitely a good feeling. Its almost there but not quite 100%.

Next is Tomb King's I'm going to get the army set out infront of me in proper units and tackle them all at once instead of just picking at 2-5 at a time. Made a big difference when painting these Ogres, helped they were small ass units. Tomb Guard are the hardest thing in that army to paint so i'll tackle everything else and then I'll focus hard on the Tomb Guard.

Or maybe Chaos Dwarves because they are quite far along as well haha. Hammer them out quick. Hobgoblin skin / armour colours stumping me a little.
