Through the Barter Bucket (see our column on the right) I received a bag of OOP Imperial Guard. In it was a half mauled OOP Ogryn. It was the really ugly one with the minotaur head. Now, I love the old school Guard, but this model is not pretty. Besides the comical design, the cast was terrible and it had lots of problems that I really didn't want to deal with, mostly on his face.
So I made him wear a head scarf and goggles to protect himself from the desert sand. Green stuff is not my strong point (I would love to take a class somewhere; when is Dave Taylor coming over to the Bay Area for a clinic?) The sigar is also green stuffed as is the left lower arm and glove that holds the cannon.
The cannon is from a Dwarfen forge. I added lots of bags and pouches and the Ork Grenade.
By bending his legs I gave him an improbably dynamic pose that looks great on the battlefield!
Anyway, despite that this model looks rough and dirty, I am glad that the Bishkek 2nd now has it's own Big Boy, a child at heart but woe the foe who gets in his way.
The base is from Back-2-Base ix
