    O&G Army : Part Three - Baneful Banners


    Hi! Last message of the year. It’s time to bring some bright colours to my O&G army. If you follow this blog, you probably notice in the first part of the project, when you watch the army pictures how the colours of the units are mute. Expect the Troll skin, I used neutral tones : Grey, brown and green tones.

    So, it was intentional! Because when you work on the harmony of colours with populous army it’s more appropriate (imho) to consider the whole units, in opposition of skirmish armies where you focus on the single models. By this way when you have many models in your army, the function of the shields and the banners is to highlight the whole units with new tones (Red, yellow, orange, …)


    I worked different aspects of the fantasy banners “science” : The personal banners, the trophies racks, the tribes banners and the great army banner. I’m feel comfortable with this part of the project and I particularly enjoyed these intense creative moments.

    Personal banners and trophies racks :
    These elements of identification are highly prised by the Orc Nobz. These decorative constructions reflect their power, prowess and skills to win during challenges. I equipped most of these posers of Grunta’s and Snorta’s and of course the Warlord on Wyvern.





    Tribe banners :
    In reference of the Chaos Marauder cards game, I created 12 banners/icons to represent the different tribes involved in this massive Orc army. I added lot of details over the banners :  Shields, bags, mushrooms, teeth, chains, charms, etc… All these details represent the memories of the glorious past of the tribes.

    Great army banner :

    I named it “The pride banner”. This Orcish piece of art is composed by the differents great banners of armies defeated so far. It also Ornate by the shields or “personal parts” of the opponents Warlords crushed in challenge by the Green skins Overlord. The original illustration is credited to Gary Chalk, from Warhammer Armies 3rd ed.

    10. Sans minimiser la qualité générale de ton travail, on commence à savoir que les bannières c'est un peu ton point fort... Je m'attendais à du lourd, mais là mes yeux ont juste grillé à force de rester écarquillés devant les photos :) Le soin apporté aux détails force le respect. La claque de l'année assurément.

    11. Spectacular and inspiring work! The extra banners and details you add just take the army to another level.
      Do you have any photos or details you can share of how you attach the personal banners to the models?
      And for those green stuff chains you add to the banners - do you model them separately and add them to the banner once dry? Or model them directly on the banner?

    12. Hello Graeme, thank you for comment :)
      In my first years of greenstuff modelling, I sculpted separetly the chains from the banners. Now I sculpt them directly on the banners.
      No additional pics of the personnal banners. I drilled the banner pole in his longitudinal axis and the back of the model. I made the link with a steel wire shape in "L" and filled the gaps with greenstuff. Cheers :)
