Warhammer - Ogre Kingdoms Tyrant WIP Part 2

My new OK Tyrant bits arrived today. I have glued on his new drinking horn, belly guard, club and head. As well as attaching his personal gnoblar attendants heads. Finally I glued them all down to their base.

Warhammer - Ogre Kingdoms Tyrant WIP Part 1

I had one extra OK Bull left from a recent eBay purchase. However it had a missing right hand weapon and no head. So I debated about finishing it off as a bull but I have plenty of those at present. However I am in need of a Tyrant and since those models are quite expensive and I already had half an ogre I decided to convert him.

A new Tyrant from GW is $40. The average price of a OK Tyrant on eBay is going for $25 to $40 USD with shipping costs added to the price. I did some bitz shopping and spent a total with shipping of $13.60. So that is about a 40% savings off of an eBay Tyrant and a huge savings from retail GW one.

So here is with his right hand cut off and his gut shield removed while he awaits his new parts.

Warhammer Rebasing

I've been rebasing my One Hour Warhammer armies the last few days. The Skaven are completely rebased but need to be flocked. The Orcs are rebased but I still need to paint up a few new units then flock them. I've added two units of boar riders, a chariot, a troll and another unit of warriors.

I am basing all my Warhammer models on 60mm frontage bases. I am adhering to the concept of keeping my armies small. I received 5 Ogre Kingdoms models in the mail today. 3 Bulls and 2 Belchers. I have all but one Bull rebased. The Ogres are so large they fit one model to a 60mm x 30mm base.

Currently in my model inventory I have models to fill all or some needs for the following Warhammer factions.

Lizardmen
The Empire
Ogre Kingdoms
Skaven
Tomb Kings
Night Goblins
Orcs
Dark Elves
Bretonnia
Vampire Counts
Chaos

15mm "Ironforge" Dwarf Units
Crossbows 2 (0 in shooting, 0 in HtH)

One Hour Warhammer: Skaven Rule Changes

I am toying with some new rules for the Skaven. Here they are:

*Skaven shooters (including Warp Cannon) may fire into any unit of Clan Rats that are engaged in close combat with an enemy. All damage is marked equally on both combatants.

*Skaven Gutter Runners: May deploy at any table edge or terrain feature anytime after the first turn.
