Solar Auxilia - Charonite Ogryns Complete!


In amongst the hustle and bustle of work and family life, I crowbarred in some time to work on these excellent minis, completing them this morning. I know the open face mask is a polarizing piece, but I must point out that the kit comes with the option to use the open mask or a closed mask, so don't let my selection put you off picking up a set.

As I mentioned last time, it was Drew AridMonk Sturrock's version of these beasts that I saw on the Solar Auxilia Facebook page that inspired me. I loved his red so much that I had to add this squad to my army. For the second and third Ogryn, I had the opportunity to use a coupe of the Vallejo Model Air silvers (Gun Metal and Aluminium). I'll give you my thoughts on these at a later date.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy these guys : )





This should give you an idea of the size and bulk of these models. They are mounted on 50mm rounds, rather than 40mm rounds for the standard Ogryn.

Cheers
Dave

  4. Stellar work, Dave! Really dig how that color scheme worked out - they just look brutal (as it should be)!

    Can't wait to see what's next!

  5. Why they are so bulky? Normal ogryns are much smaller than them. Is this said why they are so bulky somewhere in their background?

    1. I'm not exactly sure if the Ogryns themselves are any bigger, but I suspect they appear much bulkier because of all the extra gear: bigger boots and pressure suit, helmet/face mask and huge power plant between their shoulders, and all the extra armor bitz.

  6. Model on a deep sea divers helm and you have a Big Daddy from Bio Shock.
