5th Ogryn Cadre

A stand of Ogryn. As before the old style Ogryn are one of my favourite minis. I have gradually accumulated them over the years with the last 4 coming from ebay during the last 12 months. Parking the Exorcist on the painting table the ogryn have been finished. The paint schemes date from the 2nd or 3rd edition of 40k. Some of the older minis have been over painted over the years to modernise their colours. Bases have been replaced as well as the original Ogryns came with square bases like WFB bases. Finally having a total of 10  here they are together. A Stand of Ogryn.

Just finished 3 more Ogryn for the Lord Commisar Belisimites personal crusade. Old style acquired form ebay. These I feel are more characterful than the new style GW Ogryn.

There is one more to do which will take my Ogryn Cadre to 10 in total once finished.

Lord Commisar Erik Von Belisimar

Commander of the Belisimite IG personal army. This mercenary force dependent on abhumans, penal legionnaires and chemically impressed citizens is used by the imperium for its most underhand and marginal internal agent provocateur military activities and also to support field armies when lives are consumed as the currency of time. What Erik Von Belisimar uses in his rebreather system is unknown but rumours suggest that the chemicals he uses are mixed to boost his physical strength and augment his intellect while erasing his conscience. Other stories suggest that his breather system is a sham covering a system of consuming blood syphoned from humans and abhumans of his forces and his enemies.

As a leader with victories over Chaos as well as rebellious Imperial planetary governors Erik Von Belisimar is tolerated rather than trusted.

The leaders of the units of his force are below.
