Greetings Terrans, just a quick post for me today – painting time has been more compressed than usual since the last post, so I only have 2 minis to show you this week… That said, they are pretty hefty – it’s the two ‘Kosargi Nightguard’:
The fluff for these guys is that they are loyal Bodyguard Ogors (i.e. Ogres for frickin’ frick’s sake – these stoopid IP-protecting names get right on my nerves). These henchies were loyal in life, and remain so in undeath, providing the big man some serious close support. They were great fun to paint, with loads of space for adding texture & highlights. I went pretty heavy with the corrosion & gunk, because I really wanted this dudes to look ‘dug up’. I also copied the orange beard trick from Radukar, just to bring in some colour & give the mini a focal point (again, the faces were pretty obscured in all that fur!).
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for you this week – this post is literally the opposite of the subject matter (‘short and sweet’ rather than ‘tall and… savoury’?!?). Catch you next time droogs 😊
Nice, but not nice, if you get my drift! :-) I really like ’em!
Cheers mate, they are great not-nice fun 😊
These ugly buggers look awesome, the rusting/weathering is great and they’re creepy as hell. Have to admit, I thought they were called Bodyguard Odours for a second!
Cheers mate, tbf, I bet they would pong a bit 😂

Those are great- got an mongol/ rus vibe – or so it seems to me.
Cheers Pete, yup, that steppes vibe for Radukar and his closest is strong
Very nicely done indeed Alex. Those orange beards really work and give the appropriately painted drab colours a nice contrast lift. 🙂
Cheers dude – a bit of colour-fu perhaps, but worth it to give the poor fellas some zip 😊
Those are great, I really like those models and you’ve done a cracking job with them.
Cheers dude, they are a fun pair to work with 👍
Aww man I like these bad boys! Very cool indeed and I hear you on all the names haha. I can’t keep up with any of it.
Cheers mate, and yeah, some of them are pretty cringey eh?

Great work on both Alex
Cheers dude 😊👍
They look really good. I’m glad that you mentioned that these are Ogres; without something for scale I assumed that they were supposed to be human sized.
Cheers dude – good point!! I’ll do a group shot for scale when I have a few more baddies finished 😊👍
Lovely figures stoopid names!
And suitable for Mo’vember! (do you want me to add you to the list?) 😉
Cheers mate, and sure – I think I have another beardy type in the queue as well, so I might be good for four 👍
These may be my favourite minis from that box. You made an amazing job on them, fantastic!
Cheers dude, yeah, these are certainly some of the best in the set – very cool minis indeed :-)
Wow. Very bloody nice work here, Alex. I may on-steal that ginger idea down the line myself!
Cheers dude – have at it! 😊👍
Sorry mate I fallen well behind, Nice work on these beauties!!
No worries, cheers mate 😊
