Early models

Some Work in progress shots of some of the models i’ve been working on for the display.

Below is the first troll model i’ve made. It’s based on the plastic ogres, cold ones, chaos spawn and saurus. The idea being that the trolls in the army are like devolved dragon ogres that have sucumbed to chaos and have mutated. There’s still a decent amount of work needed in filling in between the components and scupting some new detail, especially on the cold one body to get rid of the saddle.

Next is the dragon ogre shaman. The rules are using a chaos sorcerer on a daemonic mount to give it a profile and size that matches the rest of the army. The plan for this one is to sculpt some armour over the orc and cold one sections to account for the chaos armour he has. In general i’m not too sure about the model though. I think the pose is a little awkward just using the arms as they are so they might need repositioning a bit. I’m not sure about the size either. What i’ll probably do is work a bit more on him but start producing an alternate model alongside and see which works out best.

Lastly, some very early pics of the Shaggoth model that is at the back of the board tearing down some castle walls.  There isn’t much I can say about this until i’ve done a bit more apart from hoping I’ve got the legs positioned right. I won’t know that though until I start sculpting them. The head is going to be the stegadon head without the large crest but i’m still not sure for the body if I should try and use something as a base or try sculpting it myself but that can wait for the time being.

One thought on “Early models

  1. I agree about the pose for the shaman – It doesnt look natural.
    Maybe if you swapped either the head or the staff so that it’s looking in the same direction its striking?
