Farm Ogre

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.

Or, maybe, there were some ogres who didn't want to, or care to, fight (gods forbid)!  They were stuck with the grubbing and animal husbandry, which they prefer over the hacking and slashing.  And they would be the stabilizing influence on ogre politics.  But that doesn't mean they're not above bashing some fool's head in with a shovel or pickaxe over some slight on their occupation.

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.

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.
