WIP Ogryns, opinions needed.

Hi guys, here is my WIP 15mm DKoK Ogryn unit, TBH I am not really sure about these guys, I'm not sure if they are to big, if their heads are to big, if the helmets work, what do you think? Persist with these, keep them as is? Change their heads to a gas mask hood more like the second fig, with no helmet? Not sure the officer with the chain sword works either, all comment appreciated.

  1. The point is that the 'classical' 40K Ogryn is consistently depicted in a semi-crouched position , so a good third of its actual height is lost,

    yours, instead are all standing fully erect and as such look 'too tall' and also 'thinner'

  2. I think there to tall and not muscley enough. Are they 28mm's? I'd of though a 20mm base figure/model would of been a better start. the helmets style is good as are the guns but like Kull said the pose are very upright which makes them same far bigger.

  3. I agree with the above posters, you need a bit more of a hunch, and I feel the legs are a little skinny. Other details are fitting in we'll with the ret of your army : )

  4. Your sculpting is fantastic. You should consider doing masters for someone.

  5. I agree with the previous posters too. They do look a bit lanky and thin for Ogryns to me. However, if you are going for a different feel for the DKOK fellas, more like large humans than the hulking-neanderthal-style ones, they're fine. Heads do seem a bit big, but that can be a consequence of wearing breathing apparatus?

    If you are looking for the more traditional style, plastic Orcs make great starting points for 15mm Ogryn/Ogres. I made my 15mm Ogres using Orc Torsos etc married to plastic Goblin legs, with a bit of GS to add a nose/cover tusks where necessary. However, that does give a somewhat cartoony feel to the models, and you may not be looking for that with your DKOK Ogryn.

    As to your other question about the helmets etc. I think the gas mask/hood thing looks best. Makes them look more menacing, I reckon. Although I'm pretty sure that an Ogryn would be overjoyed to receive a helmet with a big spike on, just like his little mates.

  6. Hi guys, I agree with most of this advice, thanks for you help, looking through my plastic orcs and planning now, they may work, they have a lot more heft, and not quite as tall.
