Solar Auxilia - WIP Charonite Ogryn


Managed to get a little paint on this guy over the weekend. The color scheme is inspired by some great Ogryn I spotted on the Solar Auxilia Facebook page.

Work continues : )

Cheers
Dave

  1. Great painting Dave, but i just hate the model, it jsut looks like a cross between teh Michelin man and edward scissor hands and not in a good way!

    1. I can certainly understand that it's not everyone's cup of tea. With only two others left to do, I should be able to keep the michelin man posts to a minimum ; )

  2. Wasn't prepared for that colour scheme and I'd never think it would work. But it does, exceedingly so in fact

    1. It does work nicely. I stole it from Drew AridMonk Sturrock on the Solar Auxilia FB page : )

  3. I love the figure and love the paint job. One small add. If possible it could have some saliva from the mouth to the gas mask. I could totally see these things drooling all over the place. Love the red accents in the armor against the grey body suit.

    1. I'd normally shy away from something like that, but as it's only for one model... how would you suggest to do it?

  4. I am torn on these guys. I love ogryns, but...
    All I can think of is 'I'm the Juggernaught! Bitch!"

    1. Yep, there is a slightly comedic, slightly unstoppable look to them : )

  5. Really dig the color scheme, Dave - that is a great combo!

    The open faced helm sculpt is definitely polarizing. I'm not a huge fan of it, but the closed-faced helms are brilliant and menacing. Nevertheless, I love how this one's turned out!

  7. I didn't like the scissor hands until you did them Dave. Great job! This guy looks so brutal!

    1. Thanks Greg. The brutal part about those scissor-hands is that they blades are on the outside. It punches in and then splays out. The designer was obviously thinking maximum carnage.
