I took a bit of a break from tiny familiars over the last few days to work on this classic model. Yes, one of the iconic Jes Goodwin ogres that everyone knows and loves. I am sure that you will agree that these are some of the finest models of the 1980s and like the familiars, there is a huge range of character and detail in each figure. In fact, anyone with even a passing interest of old school Citadel models should have a couple of these in their collection.
I am lucky enough to have ten.
Looking back at the lead mountain, I have really squandered these models. They have sat in my draw for many, many years and I really should have doen them the service they deserve a paint them up to make a unit. So alongside the tiny tiny familiars I am going to knock out a couple of these models a week (hopefully) to help preserve my sanity of dealing with the uber fiddly detail on the familiars.
He was a real pleasure to paint if truth be told. The skin was easy to highlight and his character just oozed out as I worked. Drybrushing brought out the furs and his hair and the rest was simply a case of basecoat, highlight and extreme highlight. There are still a couple of things to work on here... but they can wait.
I am just about to depart back to school. So I won't have any further time to work on anything for the next week or so. I help look after key worker children and have to do my week before retreating back into self-isolation again. But I will be back.... stay safe in the meantime everybody.
