The Forces of Lord Gloss: The Thunderscorn


Dragon Ogres have been around in Warhammer for a long time. Since the very early days I believe. However, to me, they have always been strangely out of place in Warhammer. In a world of dark and perilious adventure it seems a bit unwarranted to 'hail from thunder and lightning'. 

But now, with the advent of Age of Sigmar, they actually seem to fit in with the world they're supposed to inhabit. Dragon Ogres are born and bred with gthe flow and ebb of great lightnings and probably only conceive during wild electrical storms... in other words, on perfectly standard AOS Tuesdays. 

It says a lot about the new setting in my opinion. I would even say that when describing the new setting to someone frmo the outside, saying that Dragon Ogres are 'somewhere in the middle with regards to the level of fantasy crazy' would get you a long way.  



Painting wise I have stuck to my previous scheme of gloss and blood. I have block in the colours, done a few crude highlights, and then splattered the models in various browns and blacks using a toothbrush, whereafter a coat of sepia wash (GW) and a final coat of gloss varnish has been used to seal the deal. 


The bases were simply made using Agrellan Earth (there's an identical cheaper product, but I haven't gotten around to ordering it yet... and GW is available in walking distance from work.).

I add a coat of PVA before applying the Agrellan and seal it with diluted PVA when it has dried.
