Commission - Praetorian Ogryn Squad (Part 5)

It's been a slow couple of weeks hobby wise, as a result of a weekend spent at Tournaments (reports to come), work and lots besides keeping me busy. However I have kept plugging away in whatever gaps I've had on two projects the Ogryns and the Leman Russ. Top priority has of course been the Ogryns and it's on these I've got a small update.

Firstly one more of the first five is finished bar his weapon, Ogryn four with his Tunic, considering where he started I'm pretty pleased with how he's come out.

Ogryn number three meanwhile will almost certainly also be finished by the end of the day, his mouth needs just a little work around the lips where the facial hair was removed, and his boots need finishing. I'm not 100% happy with him, the jacket is a little rougher then I'd like on account of how many times I've gone back and 'tweaked' it a little more to get it as I wanted, thats said I'm confident it'll paint up well, hopefully once the client has it in his hands he'll agree.

The Bonehead is coming along nicely, I've press molded his helmet which I'm now tidying and his uniform is taking shape, his weapons and rank stripes will be what really seperate him from the group, but I could'nt resist adding some augmetics to one side of his face to represent the surgery used to boost the squad leaders intelligence.

With a little luck this chap will also be ready very shortly at which point I'll do the entire squads weapons in one hit, the first batch will then be ready for the client while I continue work on the second five members of the squad who have ended up seeing no additional progress this week.

I can say having seen these in person that the colonel has an annoyingly good talent at this!

Thanks guys, I've been in contact with the customer and a few minor changes are gonna be made to the open jacket ogryn so updates soon.

Also talking about another rather cool project for the future involving a complete custom Ogryn sculpt, it's gonna be fun!
