Some Nasty Orcses

Recently finished, a sprue of Games Workshop orcs ready for rapine, pillage, and other forms of shocking behaviour.  

Chaps with swords and shields.

 Unlike my recent Gondorians, I wanted the orcs’ bases to look more barren, suggesting the wastes of Mordor, with only a hint of living vegetation.

Chaps with pokey cutty things.

Shooty fellows.   Premature hair loss seems to be a problem in Mordor.

 

Warg rider from another sprue that Chris Stoesen kindly sent me.

 

 

I couldn’t resist seeing what the two mobs would look like.  They’ll get their chance soon.

 

 

These figures bring my 2015 totals to:

28mm:  Foot Figures: 61; Mounted Figures: 11, Artillery: 2, Vehicles: 2, Scenic Pieces: 2

20mm:  Vehicles: 1; Artillery: 1, Foot Figures: 6

15mm: Armour/Vehicles: 5; 15mm Scenic Pieces: 5

6mm:  Scenic pieces:  7

Blessings to your brushes!

    1. Thanks mate! It makes me wonder what sort of icing orcs would like on their cake. Blood and guts and mud flavour, maybe?

  5. It's stressful living in Mordor. One's hair is the first thing to go. Then it's teeth.

      Who would be an orc soldier? Just waiting for your annual performance review would inspire hair loss.

    1. That would be a close match. Ents are always good for firewood when there's hobbits to toast for tea.
