Blood Bowl - Human Team Original Middenheim Marauders - Ogre Big Build - TO DONE!

Although trying to avoid buying new figures with the Middenheim Marauder almost complete I suddenly realised I could add an Ogre into the team for a bit more heft but more importantly some variety. I was also seduced by the 'relative' value of this guy.

He's £12, which on it's own could be viewed as expensive, but a Genestealer Locus is £17.50 and you get much less model for your buck and even less packaging [which might be a bad thing, I can't tell]. 

He's a pretty decent sized unit, only undermined a little bit because GW puts put so many big models nowadays. As I have a few of them, now he's made he looks a little diminutive next to them. That said put him next to one of my metal 2nd Edition Ogres and he's a beast - which does beg the question why I didn't just use one of them in my team - they're earmarked for their respective Chaos Teams

It's also worth noticing the detail on his gut shield. I could not understand what was going one and as you can see from the picture above and the actual 'Eavy Metal pack shots - that skull face is criminally overlooked. I might be taking a few more liberties with my colour scheme on such a big model - a few more metallics but we'll see how it evolves.

And so I get my Big Build Big Galactic Stamp of Approval - yay!


  1. Get that skull some verdigris, stat! [claps once]. Seriously though, great model. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

    1. Yes it looks like it's going that way. A little I congruous as I've used silver on all the buckles so far. I'll judge when it's done though. I had a crisis of confidence with it two nights ago and then last night might have pulled it back. Tonight should be the decider and almost complete.
