RealmEater

Happy Weekend to all in blog land!

I mentioned previously that I’ve been rebasing my Ogre army for Age of Sigmar. I’m working on a rough plan for the army and I needed a Tyrant. In Warhammer Fantasy I favoured Butchers and Bruiser Battle Standard Bearers (Hero Level Characters) over the points costly Tyrants.

I’ve always loved the history of Dogs of War and Mercenary units of The Old World. My favourite character being Golgfag Maneater the Mercenary Ogre. So a plan was born!

We’ve started to see some of the old favourites being reborn in the Realms of Age of Sigmar. Classics like Gotrek and Morathi to name a couple. Both great examples of how GW has taken classic personalities and advanced their history in the AOS worlds. I wanted to give Golgfag the same treatment.

The last official model of Golgfag was a years ago and was made in Finecast. I’ve never had a great deal of success with that material but had purchased one anyway. As you’d expect the sculpt was nice but very bendy and warped in parts. So I scrapped the idea of using him as a base for the model and went looking for a suitable body to represent a reborn Golgfag.

After a bit of rummaging and web browsing I settled on the Ironjawz Warboss. Fully armoured and perfect size for an ogre! New weapons, few skulls and of course, Golgfags head (the best bit of my Finecast kit, thankfully!) I was happy. I then went about giving him a grubby, rusty and beaten up look using texture on those flat armour panels.

Think he’s turned out ok. I’ve named him Golgfag RealmEater. I figured that would be a suitable name upgrade to go with the model. So he is ready to lead new armies across new lands/Realms.

As with most of my little projects, it has me thinking. This has sparked in interest about other old favourites who might do with an AOS upgrade. But the next one has to be Skaff. Skaff is the loyal Standard Bearer in Golgfags Mercenary Ogre unit. There is a brilliant story in the 4th Edition Dogs of War Army Book about them. Check it out if you can. I’m sure you’ll find it online somewhere.

Hope you like him and have a great weekend.

Cheers.
