Ogre Bull Test Model

I have completed my Ogre Bull test model. I am pleased with the way he turned out.

As I mentioned previously, I am not a fan of the gray-skinned ogres as they are portrayed in the army book. When I was playing WHF in 4th edition, ogres had normal human skin tone. So that is the way I plan to paint my Ogre army.

I painted the flesh tones by starting with a base coat of Dark Flesh. I then mixed 2:1 Dwarf Flesh and Dark Flesh and painted that on leaving the deepest recesses still dark. Then I applied an overbrush of Dwarf Flesh, followed by a drybrush of Elf Flesh. After the model was finished, I washed it all with Devlan Mud.

After painting this test model, I decided not to go with war paint. I am not sure why I changed my mind on this. This model has not been sprayed with finish yet, so I could still add it.

What do you think?

Looks good! I don't see Ogres as being entirely consistent (like Orks), so you could have units where some Ogres have warpaint & some do not.

Thanks Cheef. You have a good point about inconsistency. I am waffling on whether to go back and put war paint on.

I'm getting ready to embark upon an Ogre army this summer and like your test model ... looks really good. I agree with your feelings on skin tone .. the grey/blue skin tones just seem off to me.
