View Full Version : Modelling Help Needed

05-08-2009, 11:11 PM
I hope this is in the right area, but I was wondering if anybody has some good advice on how to convert Ogre Bulls to followers of the dark gods to become part of my chaos warband. I have been struggling with this for some time so any help is most appreciated. :D

Tons of ways to go:
- sculpting (extra eye, cloven hoves, horns, etc)
- converting (I suggest get a chaos spawn kit for mutation bits)
- chaos god specific painting / tattoos etc.

Here are some examples:
converted unit (http://www.coolminiornot.com/215972)
champion using beastmen banner top (http://www.coolminiornot.com/206123)
sculpted chaos ogre (http://www.coolminiornot.com/202588)
khornate ogre (http://www.coolminiornot.com/198314)
nurgle ogre (http://www.coolminiornot.com/173729)
chaos ogres using various chaos bits (http://www.coolminiornot.com/125680)
ogre conversions (http://pages.prodigy.net/the_dark_knight/war/norse/Ogre_group.jpg)
And I just had to show these.....you jane, me ogre ;) (http://users.du.se/~h02nikhe/wh/DSCN1180.JPG)

Just get an ogre, paint it dark colours (darkened greys, a bit of black) and sculpt eight pointed stars on it.

Thanks for the responses guys I am going to start experimenting with various different things. I really liked all those examples too Heph. Thanks again. :)

Personally, i wouldnt convert at all, especially if you have alot of maurauders in your army. i wouold just paint up as per normal ogres then cover with tatoos/brand marks etc

I would stick with the above suggestions for converting any kind of unit to chaos. the Chaos Marauder sprue has some very nice bitz for chaosifying a unit.

Adding spikes to your unit's weapons might also be a good idea, nothing draws blood for the blood god like a giant nail-covered bat!

I hope this help you to get creative with them.

Looks like you have the idea.

You may want to start a log in the works in progress section.
I would be interested in following it.
