Oldhammer - Skrag, the ogres and some halflings

Skrag the slaughterer is the last Jes Goodwin ogre I completed in 2013. He is almost all armour and didn't take long to finish. I used GW's new corrosion pain in the armour recesses. I think it turned out alright, I would probably do it again. The Secret Weapon blue black ink was used for the stubble. I was very hapy with the result. Finally I contemplated using the new GW blood paint on the axe but wimped out and left the slaughterer blood free. I sure he and his patron god Malal are displeased. One of these days I will have the courage to really bloody up a model.
Old sculpt Skrag is so much better than his current GW incarnation.

Group shot of the Jes Goodwin Ogres. I will buy 1 or 2 more in 2014 to round out the unit.
I painted these Perry Halflings to see if I had improved. I'd knocked out 16 last year. Sadly my painting is neater but not that much better when it comes to halflings.


  1. More excellent brush-work. I never tire of seeing painted versions of Skrag! I have the second Ogre from right and intend to get him painted up over the next month.

  2. Cheers, look forward to seeing what you come up with when painting what I think is called the 'Ogre Beserker' or maybe it was 'Ogre Mutant'? Either way he's a good sculpt, lots of flesh.

  3. Love your work mate, would have added some red to the scar on his head and you should have bloodied the axe, I mean what's the point of carrying around an unbloodied axe? :P

  4. Those are lovely - ogres and halflings alike!

  5. A man after my own heart! I love seeing these old Ogre models painted up, and even moreso when they're done to this high standard!
