Tau of War isn't alway Tau-focussed, like I'd like it to be. I can't only paint Tau models now can I? so today I want to share some of the ogres I've been working on. (Although if you look closely, you can see some battlesuits in the background, those will be posted soon as well).
I'm not sure how effective these boyz are in Warhammer, but they've got to me some of the coolest models GW has made. They aren't the easiest models to convert and don't have a wide range of pose-abilty like other plastic kits. What they lack in range, they make up for in character.
Getting the skin right seems essential to making Ogres look good, and it seems to get better with every batch I do. I've got to work a bit on the warpaint but overall the models look good. In the next batch, I hope to improve the warpaint, taking these models from good to great.
Some people ask me how I get such clear pictures. I use a Nikon D90 with natural light. Always. And what's even cooler is that I've recently set up my painting table right by two large windows! This is great for painting on weekends during the day but at night I've still got to use my 3 lamps to paint.
