So, what’s what in the new Grinning Skull range? (Part 2)

28 May


Ok, part two in the guide to the latest Grinning Skull releases at!


GRN13: League of Anthracks Fire warrior.

The Fire warriors of the moon of Tor are total fanatics, hence the tall pointed cultist attire. They carry a burner with attatched gas tanks and proceed with the LOA troops to provide flamer support. Smoky bacon anyone? On my list is an entire set or two of the Tor fire worshipping heathens. They look too cool in the pointy helm, that’s they problem with em’!


GRN14:  Light infantry heavy weapons Bazooka.

Ground troops need a bit of help against heavily armored foes, so here with that bit of extra firepower is the light infantry bazooka heavy. There will be more heavy weapons in the future, with maybe a set of heavies for each side, just depends if folks want them (If they do, I’ll do it!)

grn15_300dpiGRN15: Light Infantry Hero.

I love this oggam, he certainly to me is perfect for that dashing Og type that would swoop in and save the day (or ruin it if you use him as a baddie) but he’s got a great face! I’d like a unit of these as special ops empire troops, but I can imagine tons of use for him in all sorts of games.

grn16_300dpiGRN16: Light Infantry Trooper #3.

This was the very first Oggam I sculpted, and he’s pretty good if I can say that. He’s definitely a rank and file bod, with his imperial crest and pack, he’s very cute! Since doing this one, the facial style of the oggam have changed much, I still like it’s more cutesy look. Wait till you see some of the Blander assitants, they are even cuter!

grn17_300dpiGRN17: Oggam Light Infantry Demolitions.

Right from the start, I knew that I wanted to provide people with lots of personalisation with the Oggam, so when creating an Oggam force of any kind, folks would really have a good choice in making a warband personal. That’s why there will always be more and more expansions with other oggam types. Here’s the demolitions expert, ready to plant his explosives, and run away!!

grn18_300dpiGRN18: Light Infantry Officer.

Every unit needs some direction, so here’s some in the form of this big bruiser! With little or no work he’d easily fit in the LOA or Uggaram (or Scrofa for that matter) He’s a stern looking Og, and fits the idea that the biggest and most corpulent Oggam tend to dominate in Oggam society. (What is termed as Oggra by other oggam)

grn19_300dpiGRN19: Oggam Light infantry trooper#4.

You’ll notice there’s a few ferals in the mix with the Light infantry lot, I thought this would be best, since I didn’t want all the oggam to be total carbon copies of the standard snorts. There too is a certain feel of revolutionary about him, but I really like how he’s turned out (they look good as rank and file troopers too, so jobs a good un’!)


GRN20: Oggam Light Infantry Medic.

Even the Oggam need a bit of medical care, even so it might be a bit haphazard and involve unwanted amputations or surgery in the field! Again diversity in troop types is what I wanted to achieve so I created him. I do have some more medical staff and scientists planned, but I have others to get done before these will see the light of day. I have a picture in my book of an oggam surgeon with a huge anesthetic hypodermic needle that needs to be made!


GRN21: League of Anthracks Battle Brother #2.

This Battle brother is equipped in partial armor and respirator of the Okvan factory designs, they are made with blending in the Okvan storm trooper and plain brothers (as another Okvan type or just well equipped city state troops) The LOA use a lot of toxic attacks so even those who peddle the black pig of death’s wares need a bit of protection!


GRN22: Oggam Light infantry Comms.

Every command unit needs a comms guy, so here’s what we have. He’s big, but he needs to be when he’s carrying around a load of bulky radio equipment!


GRN23: Light Infantry Trooper #4.

This is the last of bog standard troopers, this one being the assault trooper, armed with both handgun and sword. I think I’ll need to do a few more generic trooper types, maybe armed with an axe, two pistols, blunderbuss etc. Let me know if you want to suggest something!!


GRN24: League of Anthracks Battle Brother #3.

This is just the basic robed brother. Fodder for the Black pig of death me thinks! I have a unit of these brethren ready to be painted and I do think he’s the part. As with everything it seems, I do want some other variants of the brothers, so they too will be on the cards for the future. One can never have enough types of Oggam!

So there you have it, a run down of all the first releases in the Grinning Skull range, please let me know if you have any questions or comments about the range, the Oggam or anything else that you want to put to me.

All hail the black Pig!!
