Appetite For Destruction  – Part 6

We’re still in Movember, albeit only just, and I’ve got one last bearded fellow to show you. This Ogre riding on a hulking mournfang has been sitting on my painting desk since sometime during the last ice age and for some reason I never seemed to just concentrate on him for the hour or so it would have taken to get him finished. The time to put the final paints on him is well overdue and seeing as he’s another hairy-faced gentleman I reckoned the Movember painting challenge being run by Rantings From Under The Wargames Table was the perfect moment to focus my attention.

Thanks to the challenge I’ve managed to power through a fair number of bearded chaps large and small this month so of course a celebratory groupshot is in order.

Thanks for the motivation to get these painted is once again owed to Roger from Rantings From Under The Wargames Table so do go and check out his work and the fine range of beards on display from other participants in the challenge.

    Great figure for you to end the challenge on but why you left him unfinished for so long I’ll never know. I guess if he’s been hanging around since the last ice age it’s taken global warming to bring him out. Great work and love the fur. Makes you want to stroke the beast!

      Cheers! It’s strange isn’t it, why with some models you get to a certain point and then just stall – and there’s often no discernible reason for it. You’re just working away on it quite happily, decide to take a break and then never come back to it. Maybe this isn’t something that you suffer from but I can tell you now, it happens to me all the damn time. And then when you do finally pick it up again you’re still perfectly happy, you’re still enjoying it and there’s no reason at all why you let months – or in the case of this guy – years pass in between times.

      As for the beast he looks a bit cuddly doesn’t he? I think he’s supposed to look savage and fierce but I reckon he just looks like a big dog, I’d want to give him a clap if his owner wasn’t looking liable to eat me. 🙂

        The first part happens to me but rarely the second. Once I’ve put something aside, generally because something else shines brighter, I rarely go back. I really ought to stop doing that!

      • Wudugast

        I’m very guilty of the second, in fact often when it appears that I’m being productive I’m actually just putting in a little time on the neglected pile!

    Wow, on fire mate!! Well played 😊👍

  • Pete S/ SP

    Very nice- looks a real brusier.

    Great painting here – the sculpt looks imposing at first and then more and more clownshoes the more you look at the details and composition of the giant-shouldered beast, stumpy-man rider, way-up-high-saddle and giant polearm! I think it’s a testament to your painting that the silliness of the model doesn’t jump out immediately! They must get lowered onto those things via Chinook!
    (and yes, I also have several of those myself! :D)

    Very nice work, mate! These Ogre minis are great and every time I see you painting them, it makes me want to pick up one and paint it 🙂 Getting it done in an hour is impressive too! It would take me four or five hours if I rush through it, I’d wager! I hope you have some more kicking around to keep reminding me how cool Ogres are 😀

    • Wudugast

      Cheers! Just to be clear, I didn’t paint the whole model in an hour, 5 would probably be closer to the mark for the total time spent. It’s just that it only needed an hour to get him finished after he’d spent god knows how long on the part-painted pile. As it happens I have several other Ogres waiting for attention, so all being well you can vicariously enjoy Ogres through me until you get around to painting some of your own. 😉

      • Kuribo

        5 hours is still pretty quick for a big model like this so I’d say you’ve done well. I may have been looking over the Ogre range earlier today as a matter of fact. I haven’t decided whether I’ll be buying any but the temptation is certainly there 🙂

Speak, damn you!
