Ogre basecoat

I started basing and priming Ogres last night to try and get my army painted before a couple tournaments next month. They are small events just before Adepticon, but I still would like to get a 3 color minimum on my whole army before attending so I can bring the Ogres! My only setback yesterday was one of the batches of 5 getting fuzzed with primer. It almost ruined my night.... sigh. 23 days to paint. Ready. Set. GO.

Here is the general look of the Ogres. I plan on doing washes and highlights in the future, but right now the goal is to get them on the table asap.

What do you think of the color choice?

The base will be light grey with light highlights, and snow flock. The Daemons and Ogres will be based the same with a goal in mind of playing together at Adepticon 2013's team tournament.


  1. Looks ok, somewhat simillar to the previous book standard scheme which was a greyish skin.

    Not sure about the proposed base colour you're suggesting, might end up a bit samey with the skin tone.

  2. I'm not a huge fan. I don't know why but the dark skin just doesn't suit the model. Then I was never a fan of the yellow/grey skin GW chose for them previously.

  3. Looks fine although I'd lighten up either the gray skin or the blue pants. Both colors are fairly dark and needs a little bit of contrast. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

  5. I think some contrast would also be a good idea - grey and blue kind of make them look flat. They seem to be modeled after Mongols, I think that skin tone would contrast nicely!
