Tale of Gamers - Round 1, Ogre's - COMPLETE

I have spent some time basing the Slaughtermaster and the Bruiser to finish them off. I have just got for a simple snow base, I think it suits them. I also re-based my Ironblaster since I had the stuff out already.
I am really happy with them and if I can keep this up then the whole army should look pretty good if I do say so my self.  
For info on my Ogre units, including these ones check out my 'World's Teeth Tribe' page

Done a bit more work on the Slaughtmaster and Bruiser. Just need to base them and I am done. Well provided no one points out any alarming mistakes I may have missed.

Tale of Gamers - Round 1, Ogre WIP#2

Not had as much time to spend painting this week as I had hoped, only a few hours really, but I have done a bit more work on the Ogres. Got about 80% of the base colours down and shaded+Highlighted areas that won't be as easy to get to once the higher areas are painted.

Apocalypse Game - Hulls Angels - 05/01/2013

Headed on over to Hulls Angels today for a massive Apocalypse Game. Was approximately 37,000 points per side. Imperium vs. Chaos and Xeno. I obviously played with my Ultramarines along side Dan's 24K worth of Ultramarines, a load of Guard and a load more marines.
The opposing side consisted of 15.5K of Nids, a s**t ton of Orks, a fair spattering of Chaos, some traitor marines, some Dark Eldar and a good bucket load of Daemons too.

It was a good game, the Imperials won in the end due to capturing an objective last minute putting us one ahead and all in all many funs were had across the board.

Tale of Painters - Round 1, Ogre WIP#1

Made a start on the two Ogre models I am painting this month, the Slaughter Master and my Bruiser BSB.
As you will see, I have spent my time on the skin. This is a something I am still learning to paint well, but I am happy with how it has turned out and I don't think I will be adding anything more to it for fear of ruining what I have already got.
Let me know what you think :)

Tale of Painters - Round 1 Jan+Feb 2013

Happy new year everyone! Hope you all waved 2012 farewell and welcomed 2013 with style!! 

The start of the new year also saw the start of Tale of Gamers! For me this meant choosing my first 250pts of Necrons and 300-350pts of Ogres and getting painting. Which I have, and in fact am writing this post whilst waiting for my first skin wash to dry.

I have decided to start out fairly easy and go for mainly HQ and Lord/Heroes choices. Models I can take my time with and get back in to the swing of things on and not have LOADS to do. After all, it has been about 3 months since I last painted anything. Shameful I know.

So, what are my choices for the January and February round? Well I'll tell you.....
