|My Convic Ogre family pic|
All of the models in the photo above were used during Convic, but not all at once. The changing lists from 1000 to 1500 to 2000 points resulted in some things being added in and others being dropped as the army grew. So what you see here is probably a bit over 2500 points.
If you look closely at the Siegebreakers in the picture above, you will see that they are usable, but not truly finished. Only one of them got colour on his shield and the gold details properly highlighted. The rest ran around with brass details and are still waiting for a final bit of attention. Actually, I need to go and model some extra detail on these guys so it can be picked out in gold to tie in better with the shields. So I ran out of momentum on these guys and they wound up being the only "unfinished" element of the army.
Another thing that I suggested I would probably be doing was using some spacer bases rather than packing all of the units full of models. Some of them had the full complement of Ogres, notably the Warriors, Chariots (Mournfangs) and Hunters (sort of). The rest had the equivalent of one missing Ogre-worth of bases. It helped things fit, helped me get ready in time, and it also allowed me to do this:
|The Shooter horde carrying damage and "waver" markers, both of which are on magnetic bases, so are nicely hooked onto the steel movement tray.|
|Shooter number 1.|
|Shooter number 2|
|Shooter number 3|
|This guy aims up a fair bit. Really just a legacy of how the bits fitted together. Oh well, there are taller things than Ogres on the field. Sometimes.|
|This guy is the unit mascot, assembled by Shags. With the crossbow upside-down. Oops.|
|I only had 3 Empire-style Leadbelchers and one with a Volley Gun, so had to throw together one more Boomer. This guy was the result.|
Anyway as I say, I will talk about how the tournament itself went in another post or two. I took plenty of pictures, so you can admire these guys in action then. :P
