The War Corner #5

With my Malifaux crew almost complete it was time to give the Ogres some attention again .

The thundertusk is almost complete but I have been playing with a few conversions also –
a simple one was that I wanted was to have the blood vulture for the thundertusk on the ogres shoulder and maybe the ogre feeding the Vulture
The vulture is done complete with new kneadtite feet

I need to work out the food maybe a small skaven rat/mouse as I am trying to tie all my armies together slightly
You will notice on some miniatures the clothing and stolen bits are themed from Skaven, Wood Elves, Lizardmen (Seraphon) , High Elves and Kislev all victims of the Ogres Hunger

That brings me onto my second conversion, having procured all of the GW maneaters I wanted to add a few more and get them all on the table also.
I have always wanted a Skaven Rat Ogre maneater and toyed with just proxying one in, but it looks just that so I was having a rumage in the bits box and come across all the necessary parts and cobbled them together with a bit of cutting and kneadtite, a Maneater emerged with tales of how he survived the sick mutations of clan Moulder, however that Vermin had given him the advantage of having his weapon permanently installed and an extra hand to shovel in more meat to his new furry head.
He also gained a thicker tale and a warpstone spine.
He may develop a few more prior to painting.
I had to add muscle definition and extend thenfur from the arms to gide the joints.

Welcome to the war corner

I am currently working on finishing the Ogre Kingdoms army and the Beastclaw Avalance, more on that later, below is a picture of my Razorspine Rattler for Malifaux, a bit quick and dirty but speaking to my usual wargame buddy he also has a malifaux crew so the pressure is on to field my crew.

More from Malifaux latter as I am now building my December Children.

Update. Finished Ice Golem

I am finding malifaux crews easy to paint up to a reasonable tabletop standard quickly, The Golem is about 4 hours including assembly.
