Bull Ogre Frostlord on Stonehorn

I started painting this beast in June, and finally wrapped it up this week! There was a 2 week break in there where I worked on some Tzeentch stuff, but otherwise I've been focused on this model the whole time. Now that it's done, I'm really not sure what to do with myself...

I knew I'd be bogged down for quite a while on it. Once I get rolling on stuff, I have the bad habit of adding tons of additional detail.
Sadly, in the time it took me to paint, the model was nerfed, rules-wise. I'll be fielding it nonetheless at this point!
All and all, I'm well pleased with thing! There's a few small things I'd tweak, if I cared to spend several more hours on it: the stonehorn horns could use some cleanup, the giant's head could use some more contrast (although it is more sharp in person, the pics was out some of it).
There's so many little details here. I tried to do many of them in bright colors that didn't match the flow of the model, like the green warp stones scattered about, the pink tongue hanging on the throne, the red chaos shield on the beast's left shoulder.
There you have it. I'm stoked to figure out what to work on next. It'll definitely be a small model!
