  1. 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)
  2. 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 d
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 Hobgoblin

  10. 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
  11. 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 orc
  12. 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/r
  13. If not for Black Plague, Conan, Blood Rage, Dungeon Sage, Darkness and Light ... and maybe Bones III, I'd be interested: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1636851747/atlantis-miniatures-28mm-goblinsorcs-and-trolls/description
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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?
  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 batc
  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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. Big fan of these pig faced orcs. Its a welcome change from the usual gorilla type orcs.
  22. 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 too
  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.
  24. Hi Folks, my Orc Heavy Chariot Kickstarter went live today. It includes 3 crew members and is drawn by two Giant Wolves. There are two additional extra's available too. The Kickstarter Link is at the bottom of this posting. Thanks for the interest. ;) Andy T. Orc Heavy Chariot Crew. Wingnut' Orc Champion Giant Wolves based on an original casting by myself.

  25. I have to admit I like these orcs quite a bit now that they are painted. They painted up quick and easy. They are more shiny here than in person, but maybe I will use this as an excuse to use some of the matte sealer I got in my last order. They will do nicely for D&D, at least until my Shield Wolf Orcs get here 77056: Orc Sniper x2 77042: Orc Marauder 77059: Orc Berserker 77051: Orc Stalker 77064: Kavorgh, Orc Warboss
