Blood Bowl Ogre Painting Showcase

For those following along, this is the Ogre I had reviewed from Hungry Troll Miniatures, and also have been doing a painting tutorial on. You’re all probably getting sick of seeing this model, but the showcase is finally here!

Blood Bowl Ogre (Fluffy)

Thoughts

I can’t say enough how much I really love this model. It’s so well sculpted and detailed that the thing pretty much painted itself. So, needless to say I’m really happy with the painting on the Ogre.

I really haven’t got much more to say. I’ve sort of talked myself out on this model between the review and the painting tutorial!

I do wish this model played on the field as well as it looks. I’ve played around 8 games with the Ogre and he’s only caused one casualty. I jokingly, though I’m sticking with it, started calling him Fluffy. I figured off the field he likes playing with fluffy little kittens. Maybe that’s why he’s so bad on the field? He’s so gentle with little kitties that he can’t seem to hurt anyone…

Also, the entire team is now completed if you’d like to see fully painted Human team.

    Ha. I was just going to ask how your Thunderhawks were doing in the tournament/league that you were playing in? I think you need to pull Fluffy aside and have a little talk:

    “You know what you are? You’re like a big bear with claws and with fangs…And you got these fucking claws and these fangs, man! And you’re looking at your claws and you’re looking at your fangs. And you’re thinking to yourself, you don’t know what to do, man. “I don’t know how to kill the bunny.” With *this* you don’t know how to kill the bunny, do you know what I mean?”

    • My team is doing well in our season, just not Fluffy.

      haha! That’s a great inspirational talk he and I will need to have.

  • Perhaps he is related to the giants in the old Looney Toon cartoons that liked taking smaller things and hugging and squeezing them and naming them George

    • That was exactly my thought as well :)

  • Good stuff man. Glad you managed to get him across the touchdown line. It is a nice sculpt and the paint really brings it out.

    • Thanks.

      I’ve had him done for a while now, but I had to keep working on the tutorials before I could fully show him off.

  • Well done as always! I particularly like the colors/shading on the armor. The skin came out very well too!

    • The skin is what I’m the happiest with, which is good since I spent the most amount of time on it ;)

  • He’s such a cute little fluffy! Actually fantastic work on him Thor, the detail and colors look awesome. I followed a few of the tutorials but will be checking out more of them. I’ve been thinking of converting a troll for my orks once I finish them, mostly for the rule of cool. Do you know how do they do as compared to goblins?
    I hope fluffy finds some spirit and knocks a few more guys out for you.

    • Thank you.

      Trolls are a bit tricky. They have the Really Stupid rule. So, any turn they want to do something they have to roll a 4+. If they have a teammate next to them you add +2, so a 2+ to do something with a teammate next to them. Basically, you need someone to babysit him so he can do something on a 2+ each turn.

      Trolls do have the Throw Teammate skill, so they can toss a Goblin downfield. However, he has Always Hungry, meaning he can eat the Goblin instead of throwing him, which is an actual dead Goblin.

      I really don’t like Trolls because of those things. As a rule, an Orc team doesn’t need a Troll; they have plenty of muscle already. A Goblin would be of more value to an Orc team. Goblins are fast (compared to Orcs), and have the ability to get across the field (Dodge + Stunty). You don’t want your Goblin taking hits, but he can score some touchdowns.

      • hmm lots of good points, I was thinking of the cool factor, rather than the stupid (and hungry) factor. I think I might have a few gobliins in a bits box somewhere. My hobby goal is to get each of the teams and add an expanded model or two, like adding an Ogre to the humans

        • I’m not saying he’s bad, just unreliable. He is strength 5 in a game where 3 is average. He has Mighty Blow, so he’s good at taking guys off the field. He also has Regeneration, which makes him resilient.

          Game-wise, I’d go with a Goblin first, but Trolls are cool and I’m all about hobbying it up too.
