I have always loved the Ogres from Warhammer Fantasy. I used to watch Mason from Blue Table Painting play his Ogres against other Warhammer Fantasy armies, and always wanted to collect and play an army of them. We found some discounted models with the old square bases and picked them up as a studio army.
Once we had the miniatures, we had to decide how to paint them. I have never been a huge fan of the conventional Ogre paint schemes, so I looked at some non-conventional colors. I have always loved how cool Kratos looked from God of War.
So we used pictures like the one above to reference as we painted. We tried to get that ashy skin like Kratos has from the ashes of his family. Below is the final result.
Then we also picked up some Ironguts to help bolster the ranks as well as give multi damage unites.
