Hallo Freunde der Volksmusik, i have just started some new convertions on 2 of those lovely old Heroquest Ogres, and its about a bretonnian Background Ogre, and for my Beastmen a Evil crazy Jester Ogre, inspired by paintings of
Hieronymus Bosch

and he will get a nice tight sitting suite with donkey ears attached to the headpiece.

First: Bretonnian Ogre:" Sir Arf-a-job "








And the Jesterogre " Der Lustige Hans " :




Enjoy everybody, cheers, floedebolle

I LOVE 'EM! There is a TREMENDOUS amount of the caricature style, & an innate comic feel to your pieces that appeals to my sense of the absurd. GREAT STUFF!

thanks deafnala, as you said, i am more into the bit funny dark-comic fantasy style, that s why i also like the old range of the 80´s(citadel/marauder) , in those days the minis had more charakter, more spirit. Ach ja, please teleport me back into those perfect roleplaying and tabletop days, NOW!

always a pleasure to recieve your comments, cheers, floedebolle

These are going to be a pleasure to watch develop!

(and I remember the Ogre expansion for Hero Quest... came with them in brown and blue plastic, with a head with a mohawk haircut as well?)

Ahh, I love these Hero Quest Ogre's - they have this certain style over them that the current Ogre plastics lack.
Impressive GS work on the Bretonnian Ogre, absolutely love what you did with the hood! Smile

Hmm, now I really want some Hero Quest Ogre's.. I don't think they come cheap on eBay?

Cheers!

Hej guys, thanks for your comments, right now i am working on the ring hauberk of the bretonnian guy, takes a bit time, cause i have to make those tiny rings from real wire, justthe way you produce rings for a mailshirt, funny work actually!
@ pfreck:, think i´ve just seen a lot of auctions on the ogre expansion for heroquest, called " against the ogre hord", and i found some:

That REALLY is turning into a TERRIFIC Mordheim mini. The wooden mallet is THE PERFECT weapon for an Ogre Jester. EXCELLENT WORK!

Hans is a WONDERFULLY IMAGINATIVE creation; it's a shame you're selling him, although selling off/giving away my own creations is a trait I share with you...it's the creating part that has the most appeal. That aside, he certainly lives up to his potential. I hope whoever gets him has the talent to do him justice. FANTASTICALLY WELL DONE! thumbsup

thanks guys!
I do hope too that whoever buys him is a fellow tommy, and will post his proceding concerning paintjob and adventureres life.
@ deafnala: jap, i agree, its the creating that is the most fun for me, not the gaming. Of course i love to play mordheim, but there´s nothing better then going around with some nice ideas of new conversions, and than finally make them, and see them standing before you!

The reason is, as i told you, that i get one of my warbands that i have never revealed here painted by a real pro, and i mean pro! And believe me, he ´s not doing it for an apple or a fishy!Wink So thats why i am sellin so much stuff on ebay.
I cant wait for the moment to share my next propainted warband with you, just wait and see, it will be worth it!
And, i can say so much, that they are all old citadel minis, classics, on selfmade floortile hex bases,
regards, floedebolle

Mahlzeit fellow mordheimers, it happend to be that a big amount of will and inspiration came to overwhelm me tonight, and the outcome is a progress on Sir Arf-a-Job, the bretonnian Knight ogre.
I started to attache the shield, not to forget the fishy, and started on the rotting horsehead.
I also did the half of the belt, left arm too, and a change of the helmet, that i will have to sand in shape tomorrow.

Hope you like it, iam quite satisfied with the results, enjoy, and sorry for the bad pics, the better camera is at my workshop, so better pics tomorrow!

It's WONDERFUL what a creative, imaginative, & somewhat unhinged mind can produce; that is an OUTSTANDING example. GREAT WORK! thumbsup

Thanks deafnala, and i cant wait to get my hands on this mini tomorrow, allready can see him painted before my inner eye! Will let him be very dirty, nasty looking, like he just came from a campaign, rust and gore everywhere, and a splendid decayed horsy! zombie

Well, back again. Spend some time at work to modify mr Knigth here a bit. Went for the horsy, and finished it. Abit of hanging flesh here, rotten mane there, and not to mention all the tiny bits of rotten tissue.As soon as i coated it and gave it a wash, all the small details will be revealed. I also sanded the helmet into shape, and also managed to produce a visor for his bascinet, but iam still not convinced to use it, will have to work on it a bit more. I Have to make new rings for his mail leather jerkin, and also to apply some more leatherstraps to the shield, to fastenb it to his shoulder and upper body.
Mace is already done, but will first finish the helmet before applying it.
And a dagger or kind of short sword is also planned , to fasten to his belt on the back, not to speak of the tonns of meat and trophy heads.
Well, forgot the good camera again, so, crappy ones otra vez! Lo siento mucho...

YOU HAVE TO REMEMBER THE CAMERA! I can almost, but not quite make out the details; knowing it's cool & not being able to see it is torture. Suspect
