Bull Ogre Slaughtermaster: Finished

It's been a month and a week since I finished the conversion on this big guy. Today I finished painting him.
He turned out to be rather tedious to paint, mostly due to the variety of objects and textures that are on the model.

I worked on him every day over the last 39 days, except for 6. On average, I spent an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes each day.

The color scheme was limited by the palette that I used on the rest of the Beastmen army. I choose one of the skin/fur color combos that I had yet to use on one of the Bull Ogre character models.

The magical effect was done in the old Citadel color Scaly Green, lighted up with Bleached Bone through the various layers. That color really complements all of the other colors that are a part of this scheme.
The carving on the staff is supposed to look like wood grain in the carved design. I had never done anything like that before, and I think it turned out alright. The goal there was to keep the wood color several shades lighter than the bark color.
The hunk of meat on his back belt was painted as closely as I could to a an actual rib roast. I worked as a meat cutter in a butcher shop for 7 years, and got a bit obsessive when paining that bit.
Well, that's that. Time to move on to the next models in the army. Likely I'll do up the last two Sabertusks next..
