Farm Ogre by ursulav Farm Ogre by ursulav
The Grim Army, like all armies, ran on its stomach. It's all very well to be a ravening slavering horde of shield-gnawing berserkers, but there's not much nutritional value in a shield, which meant that somebody ultimately had to do the farming.

Ogres proved surprisingly adept at the task, and the ones that survived their roles as anchor fighters in the army often retired to take up growing turnips and training attack sheep for their own amusement.


(Having a sort of Paul Bonner-inspired urge to paint fangy tusky pudgy things, and this just kinda came out.) Digital, prints available for $10 and $20 plus shipping. Send a note or visit [link] for details.

This is great! Even a grumbling little sheep. It is funny and cute. I love their expressions and how easy going the ogre looks. He seems so happy. Refreshing work.

I knew a ram like that- and learned to run from him- although my father wasn't an ogre it was his sheep...:lol:

Attack sheep. *gigglesnort* A concept that is surprisingly easy to imagine. Sheep apparently have good memory for faces.

The juxtaposition, it is so much fun.

They remind me of Woolly the Dire Sheep, from the #blkdragon*inn roleplaying game on IRC (sorcerynet).

"... their roles as anchor fighters in the army..."

Okay, I just gotta ask. What's an anchor fighter?

'Cause somehow I don't think it involves battering one's foes into submission with seafaring equipment. Although that thought has a certain appeal.
