Grinning Skull Miniatures: My growing Oggam warhosts…

20 Aug

DSCF2728 Although the title of this post, does sound a bit like some kind of medical condition, I can assure you even so my Oggams have been growing, I’m not in any pain!! Seriously though (Well, not too serious…) I just wanted to show you my warbands being prepared for some WAR PIGS playtesting, I still have a fair bit of painting, terrain making and writing left to do, but at least things are starting to come together slowly with the whole thing. In between sculpting new stuff, back logs of miniatures in my painting queue and so forth, the ideas continue to flow regarding the famous mutant pig ogres and the game universe of all things Grinning Skull, otherwise known as the “Carnage Continuum”, the messed up place born from my head!! I would show you here my latest creations in green, such as the now finished “Clukkatrix” and the treacherous canine Volpurgi troopers, but I forgot to take some photos in my haste for getting away this week! I do promise to get the pics up next week, along with some fluff concerning the whole Okvan Chukk and their oggam masters. (And some about the role of the Volpurgi and how they fit in…) Anyway, on to the real business. Above you can see two units of my League of Anthracks battle brothers and fire support from an accompanying Firrog Tor fire warrior. It’s highly likely that they will be joined by a couple more units of armoured brothers, and and an elite unit of heavy Okvan Stormtroopers too. I’m planning on some support from a Stank (Oggam sewage firing armoured vehicle) and a Trog troop transport, but that’ll be later. Anywhoo, here’s a few pics. DSCF2720 DSCF2721 DSCF2722 DSCF2725 DSCF2727 As for my opposing side from the Empire of Og, up to press I have two units of oggam light infantry done (well, there’s a unit away on photo duties elsewhere…) but, they do have vehicle support from a finished converted APC, complete with custom sculpted tank commander. I have a Trog transporter on the go as well, but that aint finished yet (you can see the undercoated vehicle in the pic) these dudes even have a allied Scrofa Truffle miner and his loyal pigdog in tow, hired to root out precious fungi for the boss! DSCF2332 DSCF2229  DSCF2231 DSCF2232 You might have noticed in the background of the first pic, some strange looking buildings, these are prototype designs for styles of oggam architecture which will be playing a big part of the WAR PIGS campaign rules, more about them later as I’m still working on a lot of designs and types. As you know all the standard figures used are from my Grinning Skull range available from 15mm.co.uk if you fancy getting some for yourself! Ciao!

    Oh, damn, I wish I were using 15mm minis for roleplaying, these would make some great pig-faced orcs for a somewhat more gonzo scifi & sorcery campaign à la Bakshi’s “Wizards”.
    Any chance for 25-30mm versions? 😉

      Thanks for your comment! I think I’m going to have to eventually bow to the pressure and make some! I keep getting loads of folks asking for the Ogs in 28mm, so they are on my to do list, they’d be pretty large to keep them in line to how big they scale up to their 15mm counterparts (Ogre size for the majority) but they are definitely doable! I’ll let you know when I make any progress! They would make great 28mm monsters with them being about the size of gobbos or dwarves etc, but I’d like to see them done bigger, that way I can get loads more character into them!
