Ok so I have been very busy for the last week or so. I have been prepping for finals and I also had drill this weekend. Not to let the blog go untended here is a post I've intended to make for a long while.
One of my favorite units from the Chaos Renegades army are Renegade Ogryns. While they may not be the most competitive unit (barring taking a bunker with an escape hatch) and are very pricey these guys rediculously devastating when they make it into combat. This is a unit that your opponent HAS to deal with and has a lot of staying power with 3 T5 wounds per model and usually a 4+ save.
This was the one test model I did 3 years ago of a renegade ogryn using a Minotaur model as the base. I never finished him, even though I have enough minotaurs to do 9! The reason he was never finished was that at the time the only rules I could use for him were from the IG codex, but as I was playing CSM that didn't work well. Now that they have rules again I've decided to dig him out and finish the unit.
The gun was from an ork dreadnought. As they have no ranged weapon options again I will be taking this off him.
The one Khorne devoted FW model has a sack of skulls, which seemed rather awesome so this fellow also has one.
As you can see I did a lot of greenstuffing on this fellow. The backpack is an old death wind globator piece I got years ago, and it's always underwhelmed me on this model.
The power claw is from an old ghazkull kit that I also got off someone years ago. It represents the power drill option for the unit, str 10 ap2 armourbane WITHOUT unwieldy, yes please!
The face isn't finished, it needs more details and tubes so you can tell its a mask better.
Look at those boots. Those horribly time consuming to sculpt boots. Also doing the bottom of the trousers was a challenge but came out right.
I am a bit afraid that without the gun arm he might be too top heavy and fall over. I hope I'm wrong on that one.
This is my cheatsheet for my final tonight. It is what has been taking up my mini time.
Ok more stuff later this week!
