Oh, and just so everyone is tracking: defense bonus does not stack with armor.

Not sure what this means. Is defense bonus something a character would have -?- because dexterity is high?

It's described on pg100 of the rules.  Each class has a base defense bonus listed in their write-up.  For example, a 5th level bandit has a defense bonus of +5.  He can run around without armor and get that bonus or he could wear some leather armor and get its bonus, but not both.  Some classes such as Master-at-Arms have a class feature that lets them retain some portion of their defense bonus even while armored.

Okay, something that I neglected to mention: Encumbrance. I'm going for a slightly fantastical encumbrance system: If it fits, it ships. (In other words, if I think you're carrying too much, I'll tell you that you're slowed down by all your gear. If I don't tell you that, you don't have to worry about encumbrance.)

The strength attack modifier is your strength bonus. There's a table near the front of the PHB, if you don't know what your abillity score bonuses are. Orcs are medium, so no size modifier. (It's the base size with a -1 for every size larger, and a +1 for every size smaller than medium you go.)

I rolled a DnD 5e character for the first time on Sunday. Took forever but I am understanding the basics better. RE-filling out the sheet to look cleaning and make corrections. I will send you a new one shortly.

      Hi chums!
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      Venomous Flowers by PrintYourMonsters.  These are 3d resin prints.  Of course, they might also be only harmless spring flowers on some sci-fi world. 

      The smallest one is a bit over 1" across, the largest is taller than a humanoid figure.  Overall I've been very happy with the Plants and Rocks files.

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”

      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!

      The finished version of the mini WiP I was sharing earlier today.
      I tried to use washes and played with basing this time around.
      Any suggestions would be great as I don't feel as proud for this one as I did the Dark Chronicler Astrid I did back on May.
