  1. Hey all, Here is the start of a small Orcs and Goblins force. These guys have been sitting around for a while, but since I forgot to pack my case of miniatures when I came back overseas, they are next up on the painting table... I hope they'll make a nice complement to my Ogre army, and be useful for RPGs and Warhammer Quest. So far they have gotten some brown, beige, and two shades of green.
  2. Back with orcs again ..actually the remaining 3 I had ( still some dwarfs and goblins waiting xD )

    Band of orcs

    Some orcs that I had started a while ago as practice but set aside but are now ready for some WAAARRRGH! I still really like these designs of orcs with the exception of trying to paint the eyes on them, half the time I cant tell where the eyes should go. I think of the four the Berserk is my favorite. C&C always welcome. Bones used 77429: Orc Grunt 77059: Orc Berserker (Two Handed Sword) 77051: Orc Stalker (Two Weapons) 77045: Orc Hunter (Spear)
  6. I've finally gotten around to taking some photos, so I figured I'd share. A little info on the minis first though. All the bases are made with broken up cork board that was picked up from our local hobby shop. Then dusted with some sand and painted, then flocked. These little guys were clear coated pretty heavily for table use. Sorry about the quality of the photos. It's the best I could achieve with a cell phone. They aren't nearly as glossy in person, and their skin is quite a bit more olive colored in person also. Anyways, here are the item numbers from reaper if anyone wants to hunt them down for themselves: 03400, Orc Spearman and Swordsman 03405, Black Orc Hero 03429, Black Orc Archer (X's 2) 03489, Black Orc Warriors

    Orc Patrol (aka Orcs in Fuzzy Hats)

    This was a trio of orcs I recently acquired for cheap and liberated from 20+ years in blister packurgatory. They are from Grendel’s “Leviathan” line, and the sculptor is unfortunately not credited. These are some seriously hefty minis, slightly larger than (but still to scale with) Reaper’s Orc Berserker, et al. Mostly I wanted to try out my new basing stamps and these guys made a good excuse for that. I also wanted to experiment with orcish skin tones. The remainder of the figures I wanted to make less “nice” and more “uniform”, so most of the details were simply basecoated, hit with some GW Nuln Oil, and occasionally highlighted. First up, the spear carrier: For the skin, I used a base of MSP Brilliant Green. This is, in my opinion, a poor choice for orc flesh. Great for a tree frog though, probably. For all three, the square leather armors are Leather Brown, and the fur fringes/hats a mix of Desert Sans and Mountain Stone (to match the orc from the LTPK). Cloth areas are Templar Blue, marking them as the Blue Team, I guess. Next up, the...standard bearer? Very similar in attire, with the addition of a big fuzzy cloak done with Intense Brown. I actually attempted to do some layering, but big and fuzzy isn’t the most conducive surface to work on. His skin is a 1:1 mix of Naga Green and Tanned Skin, and I think it came out quite nice. I really loved his expressive face and big tongue. Finally, the swordsorc: By this point I had ceased caring about quality (aside from skin) and my brush control was fading rapidly. Came out good enough in the end, though I wish I’d done his vest in a different color. Despite looking a bit greenish (to my eyes) in the pics, his skin is a 2:1 mix of Palomino Gold and Tanned Skin. I like it, it’s sufficiently “non-human” and a nice change of pace. Comments and critiques welcome, leave them below. Additionally, if anyone can identify who sculpted these it would be much appreciated. The molds are currently owned by Scotia Grendel, but they don’t list the sculptor either.
  8. Hello community, I finally started preparing my bones 3 orcs and want to base them. I am wondering what base size would be the correct if we use them for d&d 5e ? I assume 25mm, but from the figure size it’s more 32mm. Anyone some suggestions please? Do you think 32mm would work as well with the d&d or pathfinder map tiles? regards, nuki

    Tyrana Mountains Orcs Miniatures

    About "Caesork Mhork Aureliork has decided to expand his empire. He has sent his fearsome Legiorks to south. It has already conquered the tribes of the mountains of the West, the fierce clans of the North coasts and the nomads of the deserts of the East. He sent his hero Maximhork to exercise his hegemony over the giant Cyclops of the "OHMYGHORK" islands and executed all those who opposed his rule." "Now it's the turn of the rest of the peninsula. The lords of the human provinces fear him, because they know that their Cohorkts are implacable. Their Centuriorks possess an intelligence and tactical knowledge unfit for your race. Their technology is more advanced than that of any orc tribe. All creatures that terrorized men now serve Caesork and according to the messengers their gods listen to them. Caesork, his soldiers call him; Emperork, all his subjects. And that must be the case because it is the first time we have heard that an orc warlord is capable of weaving diplomatic alliances with other races. Some of the lords of the provinces closest to the Tyrana Mountains have already started dialogues with their Tribunorks. Will I have the courage not to kneel?" The Orcs of the Tyrana Mountains have been elaborated according to current quality standards but without forgetting the classic flavor with which many of us grew up in the decade of the 90's. All the models of this project will be reproduced in resin by Alemany Miniatures, a specialized company that has been offering years of high quality service to all emerging companies in the miniatures sector.

    Orcland Raiders

    I’ve loved Blood Bowl for a long time, and I was super happy to see Games Workshop bring it back (ok, some of us were playing the whole time, but it is still great to see their new minis and boards). Here’s a team that I got to do for a client. I’ve always favored the Bad Moons, so I was really happy that he wanted these guys in Bad Moon Yellow.

    Atomico; The Goblin King

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/621743078/the-goblin-king-miniatures-set Text Link because picture is a bit too non-PG. This is a miniature set featuring the Goblin King being carried around by his burly orc goons, as he flaunts his girls and his gold. The set fits well into any 28mm heroic to 32mm fantasy miniature setting. This set can be easily be the center piece to any goblin army.

    Lidless Eye Hobbies: Early Orctober

    Orctober got an early start this year, mostly due to me pouring too much green paint when I was doing the base tones on my Bones III Monsters: First, the actual Orcs! I liked the thematic continuation of the Orcs from Bones 1. Painted with them, and only cousins to the theme of Orctober, come the Hobgoblins! There were a few frustrating details on these sculpts, and some odd undercuts, but their paint scheme stayed relatively simple. I don't use Hobgoblins often; I think the only time they've shown up in anything I've run has been premade adventures where they show up as random henchmen.

    Pig Faced Orcs: A Simple Conversion

    I have no idea what caused Gary Gygax, in the first edition Monster Manual, to decide that orcs had pig faces. Perhaps, like the infamous Punkin Headed Bugbear, he didn't INTEND for orcs to resemble the Bacon People, but rather to simply look porcine, and then miscommunicated it to the artist. I dunno. But when I began playing the game, orcs looked like pigs. It didn't last; the British brought us green orcs, other Americans brought us hairy gray orcs, and Ralph Bakshi brought us clips from Zulu Dawn with the Zulus painted black and red eyes and fangs added. But for some of us, our first orcs were pig faced orcs. Some companies make pig faced orcs for us old grognards. Mostly British companies, for some reason. Darksword makes a very fine pig faced orc, based on the splendid artwork of Tony DiTerlizzi... but he's just one orc. Recently, I noted that this one company (British, of course. What is it about those Brits?) had gone so far as to make pig faced orc HEADS, a whole resin sprue, ready for conversions and add ons to existing brutal monster warrior figures in 28mm. They were indeed vurra fine heads, and at not too high a price. I just hate ordering from overseas due to the hassle factor and time involved. And then it hit me. I still had quite a few Tre Manor Bones orcs left over from the Bones 1 Orcpocalypse. All I really needed was HEADS. And so I ducked out and got some farm animals. And threw together a few prototypes. Strictly tabletop quality, because I needed to know how much effort this was going to take, and whether the little rubber pig heads would work in the place of Tre Manor's brutish orc heads... and yeesh, the pigs all look alike... and if they're going to look remotely threatening, they need TUSKS... ...and... hm. Perhaps the project could benefit from further study...
  14. I had some painting time at lunch this week, and didn't take anything special to the office to work on, so this is what I pulled out of what I already had stashed there. These are old Ral Partha orcs, as recently put back into production as part of their 2015 Chaos Wars Kickstarter. I'm trying to make a bit of a push to get those units on the table for demo games; my Ral Earth collection includes quite a few vintage units that are out of production, so I don't like to use them in rules demos...I feel like they ought be be done with available figures. I used the same white/black/red colors on all the shields, hoping that gives a unified feel to the group, even though everyone gets his own unique shield.

    The Gouged Eye on deck

    Just finished my Reikland Reavers, now onto the Gouged Eye. Just finished priming with Army Painter Greenskin. I will update as I go on. These will be getting a simple tabletop paint job as I need to get them done and move on to the other 4 teams I have in my collection. So many minis, so little time.
  16. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1658344233/rude-girls-female-orc-miniatures?ref=category_newest Linked instead of embedded because nudity.. About this project Hello all, You are looking for a female leader for your orc army, or just a cool miniature to paint ? Well, this is my first kickstarter, so don't be afraid if the layout is pretty basic, you will not find supershinywords or coolfantasybackground, it's not my style... What you see is what you get ! Few words about me. Miniatures sculptor for nearly 20 years, I've worked for a lot of famous companies like Rackham, PrivateerPress, Mierce, and many others... Today I want to create my own range, to explore my favorite themes in fantasy. All the minis are cast in resin by a skilled craftsman, here in France, no Chinese plastic here.
  17. Hi, After being very lazy on the painting front for a while, I decided to knock a batch of models off of my unpainted shelf. These models are part of an expansion from the "Dungeon Saga" board game called the "Warlord of Galahir". The theme of the expansion is mostly Orcs and Goblins with a couple of new heroes: a Salamander (a fiery lizard man) and a Glade walker shaman (a tree-man). The models are cast in "coloured plastics" so the details may not be the sharpest, there was a lot of warping, but it is pretty good for a boardgame, and there is a pair of identical sculpts in each batch. Painting-wise, I went for quick tabletop quality, no blending, stark highlights, and resilient clear coat as I'm expecting these models to see quite a bit of action with the kids. The hardest mini to paint was the Orclings as they are super-tiny and tightly crammed on the base (they are based by default) making reaching out some spots challenging. C&C welcome Heroes and Boss: Trolls: Orcs: Goblins: Orclings and Mawbeasts:
  18. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/241045416/heroes-of-arinoth-fantasy-miniatures?ref=category_newest About this project Over 500 years ago, one mysterious individual succeeded in uniting all of the peoples of the lands of Arinoth for a common goal, and became the first king of Arinoth. Vicious orcs fought alongside majestic elves, and powerful lords of the undead stood by human magi. For centuries, these races joined together to fend off foreign invaders. But this peacetime was not built to last… The king having been found dead and his legendary artefacts disappeared, the leaders of each race began to tear one another apart, accusing their neighbors of staging a coup in an attempt to take the king’s powers for themselves. Now, they prepare themselves to wage an unforgiving war against former allies… The project:  The goal of this project is to fund a new line of fantasy miniatures: elves, orcs, and other peoples from the world of Arinoth. A game is currently in development, to be released at the end of 2017. Making a pledge to this project is your chance to get a sneak preview of its resin figurines, including exclusive miniatures that will not be available outside of this Kickstarter campaign. Pledge levels: Suggested pledge: Suggested pledge Plus get the exclusive Mo’nik figurine, only available through this Kickstarter! Mo'nik - Kickstarter exclusive miniature! Starter packs: Starter pack Dark seeker Starter pack Alaria Starter pack Chol'pif Starter pack Deb'uire The races: Elven Alliance: The convergence of four former elven enclaves, the Elven Alliance has become a powerful and prosperous nation.. Dark Seeker, Keeper of the Flame, Tracker Commander: An important general in the Elven Army, this former elven Dark Lord is an impressive warrior, in addition to being an excellent sorcerer in close combat. Respected by his warriors, he enjoys displaying his superiority by defying and killing his adversaries in grim and miserable duels. Queen Alaria, High Priestess of the Moon: Previously Queen of the High Elves, Alaria has since become Queen of the entire Elven Alliance. High Priestess of the Moon, she is one of the best Healers in the kingdom, and was one of the former king’s closest advisers. Now, Queen Alaria has accused the orcs of treachery, and is set on retrieving the king’s powers to eliminate the Orc Warchiefs and restore peace to the Arinoth kingdom. Orc Tribes: Although since the reunification there is now a single Orc Chief, the orcs are still split into clans, each with its own special characteristics and skills to bring to the horde. Chol'pif, High Shaman of the Vol’kar Clan, Hordechief: Chol'pif was “elected” Hordechief, after having killed all of his opposition. This powerful Shaman was the military adviser to the king, and was always on the front lines, instilling fear and courage in his warriors. He claims the innocence of his clan, and accuses one of the Dark Lords of the Undead. He would like to possess the king’s powers in order to wipe out their entire population. Deb'uire, Mountain Orc, Iron Clan Warchief: Deb'uire is the horde’s champion, its most powerful warrior. If he wanted to, he could undoubtedly take control. But he would rather be in the thick of battle alongside his loyal soldiers than seated around a table negotiating. He trains the Lava Orcs, some of the horde’s best warriors, himself. Other important characters: Dark Lord Xan'Thaal, Death Knight: He is one of the most powerful Dark Lords of the Undead. This imposing warrior is also an excellent necromancer. Formerly the king’s siege warfare adviser, as the undead are experts in the art of laying siege. Many Arinothiens believe that it was he who assassinated the king. He has always claimed it untrue, yet without naming another guilty party… Mo'Nik, Master Healer of the Vox Clan: The Vox Clan is a group of monks living far from other civilizations. Mo’Nik is one of the Master Healers of this clan, specializing in herbalism. Numerous adversaries have been conquered in duels, having underestimated her small size. And many more... Chol'pif Deb'uire
  19. These two bruisers were painted up to represent a pair of Half Orc Brothers. I've never been a big fan of artwork showing Half Orcs with very green skin. I needed make sure that the human side was visible. This meant a lot of glazing with lighter flesh tones over an Olive Drab base. I think it worked?

  21. My in-laws have a tradition of passing off a joke gift to all the male adults. Someone (it's forgotten who originally was gifted with the slippers) got a pair of knitted size 14 (my in-laws are all over 6'5, I'm the short one at 6'2) slippers in white, orange and green wool. They are ugly. This person then added a small change, like a patch, to each slipper and re-gifted it. The tradition continues. There's one more person I can give these to before it becomes a random (or someone else marries into the family). I'm adding a few quickly painted bones orcs. I would do different ones (because I have doubles of a couple), but apparently they need to be the same. If in the event it's legal, I will be replacing a sniper with a marauder 77042. I will document my quick paintjob in this thread, and then safety pin them to the slippers. I will also be painting a few other bones orcs too - the marauders and Rogan 77224. Photos soon.

    Wee little dwarves and orcs (10mm)

    Recently, I had a mad idea to make a travel set for the mass fantasy battle game Kings of War. I could take it to my brother's so I can play it with my nephews and nieces, bring it to cons without needing to rent a U-haul, even take it to the beach. The general idea is to use 10mm figures instead of 28mm and scale everything accordingly. Since Kings of War uses unit bases with no figure removal I can fix these guys onto their bases and add some scenery, etc. After looking into what was available in 10mm I decided to start with two Lord of the Rings inspired armies, dwarves and orcs, based on the 10mm figures from Copplestone Castings with some figures from other companies to fill in any gaps. Anyway, I ordered a bunch of stuff (it's hard to say no when people are selling packs of 28 minis for just few dollars) and since they have a branch or at least distribution here in the US, the first to arrive were some dwarves from Eureka. They came before I was expecting them and I got all excited and gave them a quick bath, forgetting to clean up flash, etc. first. Yep, these guys are pretty small. The white bit of polystyrene is a 80mm wide horde base that should nominally hold 40 dwarves but my plan is to have the non-orcs with quite a bit less than that and if possible have more than 40 orcs on such a base. That's to give more of the feel of Tolkien's battles where the good guy are normally vastly outnumbered. More later.
  23. Just like 2015, I realized the end of Orctober was quickly approaching, and I hadn't painted a single Orc! I had to remedy that, but I went through the box of "primed and ready" and found the Orcs...lacking. I had to build a few, and these were the results of those most near completion already. First, we have a group shot: "C'mon, boyz, dance like ya mean it! Show the crowd what they came here fer!" Some solo shots of the notorious Kap'n Kee-Runch, a Freeboota of little note. He's assembled from the Tankbusta Nob, arms from the plastic Nob box, and a pirate Ork head from Spellcrow. Then we have savages, the lot of them: A very agile lot of Savages. Check out those dance moves! That's the end of that.
  24. So I was going through and databasing my paints in the PaintRack app, and noticed I had a bottle of MSP Black Green 09236 (oddly, if I search for that code on the Reaper web site it comes up as Green Shadow.....) and thought "That might be a good colour for some nice dark green Orcs." I'm working on all 6 figures listed above, but only got 3 finished by the end of the month, so I'm posting them up now. The other three will likely get finished in the next week or two, and at that point they will all get bases.

    Jasper paints some Orcs

    Was cataloging my Reaper paints the other day and noticed I had a bottle of Green Black. I couldn't remember using it for anything (or even when I got it) but I liked the look of the colour and thought it might work well for some Orcs, which is would also be a good excuse to get back into painting some fantasy stuff. So I grabbed a handful out of the big bin of Bones Orc goodness and away we go. I plan to put gaming bases on do the broccoli got lopped off. This actually slowed me down a couple of days as I snapped what turned out to be my last #11 cutting Kavorgh's base, and it took a couple of days to get over to the mall to get more. And with a coat of Grey Liner. The little guy was my test of Green Black over Black Primer to see how it looked.
