Island of RegnaThe_Penguin 09-09-2018

Good day, guys! Takes Hat off

This time I decided to share my progress on a new KoW Army: the Ogres! But traditional approach is not good enough for me, so the Island of Regna emerges from beneath the waves! Happy

Regnan Pirates

Many centuries ago Island of Regna was populated by feral ogre tribes who kept to themselves and knew little of outside world. It is not clear who were the first human settlers that came to the island. Most likely they were refugees from Basilea or just adventure-seekers. Their first encounter with the ogres was surprisingly peaceful: the ogres quickly realized that humans have a lot to teach them in terms of technology (especially gunpowder), while the humans could use the ogres' muscle power for protection and labour. As a result a new nation was born. Once the entire island was colonized and all the tribes united, the inhabitants turned to piracy since no other nation could really show any sound resistance to the combination of human wits and ogre brawl.












Ogre Buccaneers

Ogres are far from being stupid as some people think. Some are actually very intelligent, capable of crafting pieces of art, music and able magic-users. Those who are less gifted usually join the ranks of buccaneers. These fearsome pirates would smash things left and right which can be most useful when attacking big ships or even enemy forts.







I hope you liked that part! See you next time! Cheers!

These look great, cool army concept too! Happy That's quite an impressive amount of pirates, which figures are those? I feel like I've seen them before but I can't put my finger on where, they're very nice looking anyway! The ogres are really cool too, I love the barrel shields and those are some nasty looking cutlasses Big Grin

RE: Island of RegnaThe_Penguin 09-16-2018

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen! Takes Hat off

Today it is time for another tour to Island of Regna! So load your pistols, sharpen cutlasses and don't forget your rum! Cheers!


Ogre Tideriders

Regna is a big island, and boasts a large fleet of pirate ships. However even it cannot completely secure the waters from various sea monsters, elven raiding parties, or other nuisances. In order to deal with minor threats Regnans would often deploy Tideriders.
The island has always had a large population of giant crocks, and ogres have domesticated them long time before the humans came. Now with new technologies and gear they are even deadlier to their enemies.















Regnan Boomers

Pirates of Regna sometimes call themselves "Empire of the endless ocean", hinting that there is no place in the known waters where they haven't been or can't get. Whether that is true or just boasting on their part is open to discussion. Nevertheless none can deny that their ships are very effective in pillaging villages, raiding towns or sinking entire fleets if need be. One of the most treasured spoils (apart from gold and gems, of course) is enemy artillery. Good cannons are hard to produce and usually the easiest way to get them is by taking enemy's ones.
The best cannons are usually used in regnan forts or ships, while those of lower quality are given to Ogres, who take special pleasure in using these large, noisy "boomsticks" to blast apart anything their enemies might throw at them.










See you next time, mateys! Pirate

Nice background stories as always, neat painting (astoundingly fast, with clean results in a good palette!) The Boomer unit looks great, not least the tricorn, fishcannon and  the human light artillery team. But the saltwater crocodile pirate ogre riders take the prize...! Ingenious idea, and they look spectacular!

Yarr! Shiver me timbers and walk the plank. Pirate
