A Fantasy Human Army Groweth…

Most of my recent efforts have been concentrated on getting my collection of painted stuff based up for games I actually, or plan to, play. Warzone Resurrection has been an exception to this (and I still have plenty for it on my workbench). The following models are not an exception. These units were originally assembled for Mantic’s Kings of War, and, as I’m moving all of my mass-battle fantasy efforts over to Hail Caesar, there’s a lot of rebasing to do.

The Human army is still without a name and fluff. I’ve been gaming with these figures for over two years now and still haven’t done anything about that. That’ll need to change. I’ll also have to stat up units to fit with the rules, and cost them with points values. (Eventually.)

The two human units here are small units as per the rules and I might paint up the necessary figures to make these units to standard size. I only need to buiild and paint nine, but as I’m concentrating on rebasing for now, all that can wait.

I’ve also completed an Ogre Auxiliary Regiment, the first of maybe no more, depending on funds. It’s only called the Ogre Auxiliary Regiment for the benefit of the humans in the army, as their name in Ogrish is unpronouncable…

I’m also planning to use the rather ungainly cannon-wielding versions of these guys as artillery units (instead of missile units), with human crews for loading, etc with the ogre acting as a walking gun carriage. This will need some rules tweaks, but I think it’s worth it for the eye candy that will result. It’s a fantasy army after all, and if ogres were available this kind of walking artillery carriage might actually have happened. Maybe. 😉

Those soon. Until then, here’s the Ogre Auxilary Regiment in all its glory:
