Great conversion, show me more even if they are missing hat or helmet. Or will they get them?
Here they are with arms and horns.
Next I’m gonna make them shields using warriors of chaos shields
How many are you gonna do?..do the Ogre torso match up good with the bull body, or does it look out of porportion? I would like to see them next to a unit of CD’s when you are finished.I’ve been pondering the idea of getting some of these resin bulls…the price seems decent, I would have to get some Ogre Torsos tho’
they are looking pretty good so far
One more reason for me to by a box of ogres… Well done.
Here you go RichardC1967
I don’t think they are out of proportion, but the next i’ll be making will have the ogre body a little bit lower and more between the bull’s shoulders instead of in front of it so it look more like being one piece.
I’m planning on making three bull centaur renders and one Taur’uk.
For the Taur’uk I will be using a minotaur body and arms to show the +1S he get but I don’t know how the ogre head will fit on it. Does anybody playing Ogre could tell me if there’s bigger heads than others in the ogre army or are they all the same size?
I don’t know about bigger ogre heads, as far as I know they’re all the same size. However, using minotaur bodies with ogre heads is a common conversion so there’s plenty of pictures on the web.
If you feel an ogre head is too small, you could look at using a giant’s head.
I love what you do with those models!
Not a big fan of the beards though, the are a bit thin. Have a look at this Tutorial for beards with a bit more body.
And for what kind of weapon option are you going? I would keep in mind Greatweapons and or Additional handweapons as those are your best options.
keep up the good work (:
Thanks for the link to the tutorial Bolg. I know I’m not the best sculptor but I tried to make the beard as close as I can to the forgeworld one. I have to say, mine are a little bit too Davy-Jones-ish. I’ll try to make it better on my next one.
As for the weapon option, I’m not worrying about those kind of thing. I don’t mind about models not representing the weapon configuration they have as long as it’s clear before the game start. So I’m going with the HW/S combo for the look of it but as you say, I’ll probably go with great weapon in most of my games.
Thanks for the wip on the bullcentaurs < slaves>
That’s nice of you Kera.
Stay tune, some pics of my unfinished Hobos soon.
I think your storm vermin hobgoblins are some of the better hobgoblin conversion i have seen
in a long while …
of course i might steal you idea now
Indeed they look great, I wanted to use stormvermin to make all of my hobos but clanrats from Island of Blood can be very very inexpensive on ebay.
Here is the link :
Just a quick update on christmas day.
Here are my first bull centaurs ready to paint :
I wanted to make the pieces of armor with putty, but I finally decided to go with paper since I’m not that great a sculptor.
Happy holidays to all!!!
I think you can make the amour out of the grey stuff ,if you can blend the ogre body to the bull .
You can do the Amour… Just do it in layers. If you don’t like one of the layer you could re do it
