Awesome! That's a warband to be proud of! They look more Mordheim than most orc warband I have seen. Perfect plundering orcs. thumbsup

Anything wrong with the classic red look? Maybe a bit muted to fit your Orcs better...

I LOVE Squigs...they're the ONLY thing sillier than Night Goblins, except, of course for moi . Most of mine were done in a bright red despite that being GW's preferred-we-did-it-once-so-that's-it-FOREVER color; the batch I did for my Red Brotherhood Night Goblins were done in black. I've got some blue ones & a couple purples kicking around. SO...it's pretty much whatever floats your boat. Not much help here, eh?!

Sure, its helpful!

I think i will go with different colours; dark blue, dark purple and dark red. I will try to get thesame 'dull' tone as my orcs have (only mixing white in with the colors)

I realy like the more grity realistic skin couler. The goblins red nose realy adds to his snivling apearance.
when it comes to squigs I think the wierder the coulers the better. I have a yellow one with blue tigre stripes and a purple one with green scales!

I would stick to darker, muted colors to maintain your warband's aesthetic, but don't feel limited to red if you still want to go all out and have some funky patterned squigs in there too.

Here and here are some pretty cool looking, multicolored squigs in good earthy tones that are sort of an example of what I'm talking about.

Great comments all! And great photos of the squigs! They look very nice! It was actually really confusing playing with empty bases as squigs today Sad And it kinda lost the 'feeling'...

The first game today was awesome!
I lost 1 orc boy, but bought him back after the game. One of my heroes gained the 'eadbasher skill! so he's ready to do some (more) havoc!

I rolled triple 3s on the exploration chart, and got 5gc........ That is kinda sad Sad

All in all a very funny game, and i can't wait to play another one!

wuhu!

Sounds like you're off to a decent start! Orcs & Gobbos are a fun warband.

Wish I could take credit for the squigs, but I'll agree with those here that they're some of the coolest squigs I've seen in a long time!

When I saw your painting style they popped into my head, And, so I thought I'd post the link.

May i ask what particular model you used for your Shovelin' boy? It's my most favorite orc model!

I have actually been working on my greenskins lately, and used the raiders. And had the idea for snikrot as my boss for awhile, but you beat me to the punch. When I saw this post I was cursing at you for stealing my thoughts! (shovel boy I would have never thought of tho!)

Braineater!

Im sorry for stealing your idea Wink it was just so tempting!

I can't take credit for the conversion idea of the shoveling boy. WBK inspired me Smile
But he is made out of regular orc bits:

orc head, spear arm, lamp from wall and fences kit, empire shield for shovel head, legs and torso from normal orc boyz sprue, lamp arm is an orc boy arm with another hand glued on. Smile

Thanks!

Time for the idea to pass to the next generation of Shovelin' Boyz.

I'mma make one.

I gotta ask though, do you count that as a two handed weapon? Choppa? How is that one armed?

I armed him with an axe Razz... thought that the shovel must have a cutting edge Wink

Awesome! I have both the orc raider models and I was about top purchase Snikrot and make him my boss, but decided to make a black orc warband instead after seeing that you beat me to the idea! (modifying it to make it actually orcy by taking away speed skills and giving the young'uns str skills)

So I am using the figure that came with the special edition of Warhammer online as my boss. Can't really customize it, but it's beautiful as is. I will have to post pics of some of my converted orcs once I have em painted up...

Well done And! You and WBK have been big inspirations to me and my green side.

Sounds awesome dude! I am currently not using my orc warband since i got tied up with reiklanders instead Razz

And now im wandering off to The Possessed, so i dont know if my orcs will se battle for a while ( OR EVER!!!! :O)

Im glad that we inspired you. WBK inspired me and since i inspired you, why not let the circle stay closed and let WBK be inspired by you? Wink
