Anyone who play the tabletop version of Warhammer 40K [made famous ala Dawn of War] will know about the Imperial Guards..have started this game waaay back when I was in highschool [20+ years lor..so now u know I uncle level one..hehehhe..
why..what's wrong..here alot of uncles one ok?!... = =!!]
Ogryns are basically the 40K versions of ogres, only called abhumans who are not so clever, but nevertheless recruited by the Imperial Guard to fight wars against Chaos [or Xenos ..ala Aliens..the fluff is so thick, novels and novels are written about them..so will not go into 40K literature...
The official ones are metal and costs 11.25 pounds [about S$23] EACH..so a squad of 6 will cost u like $138!! Update : They cost more now, dont they?
So, in the modelling community, folks who dont wan to blow their noses and their wallet [so they can spend on their children la, dog la, mistress la..oops..u get wat I mean]
Anyone interested can go to their website to learn about it...
Do you want know more?
Anyway a pic of the box [note box art copyrighted by Gamesworkshop]
[Ripperguns are sturdy, easy to use automatic shotguns so Orgyns can just aim in some general direction - the enemies'..and like the old saying goes..if u keep shooting, maybe you'll hit something...]
The ammo drums are stolen from a wrecked LVTP..
Included below are some rough plans for anyone interested in scratchbuilding their own ripper guns:
Conversion of the ogre body..
The first completed 2 are painted as trial...
Berets are made from green stuff...spare shotgun shells lined the bandolier are plastic rods with just some gold paint at the lower part of the shell.
The squad leader [known as the Bonead or Bone head], as he is a little bit smarter [know how to use binoculars]....
"FRAG the fraggers! Now!~"
"Er..boss!!!, is it da red one..or da green one?" [bullets rechocheted on the sides of the wall..going Whoop whoop whoop against the mudwalls and plazinc walls...]
"*%#&^$!!.. DA GREEN ONE!!!!!"
....and his men went ahead and threw the red ones anyway.
