First off, as has been said by others, Mürrisch is awesome. The beard is very well executed, and using the night goblin puppet is just right! Fängmorder is brilliantly painted. I really like the darker tone you have used this time. Suits Witch hunter orcs IMO. And, as always, your high lighting technique makes the mini pop. Very inspiring!

Jesus f*ing Christ, that´s an awesome idea!

Great paintjob as well, I especially like Fangmörder.....he surely does his job better than those sigmarite weaklings!

those are superb! Not just the paintjob (which imho is phenomenal) but the conversions as wel. I am REALLY eager to check out the rest of these guys!

What models will you be using for the hounds?

I'm thinking about using just the front half of plastic Chaos Hounds with a little Greenstuff work to Squig them up. I'm going to finish at least 12 Orcs and start on a few Goblins first though so I have time to ponder...

WoW! That Grimmig is really a small fellow! Razz
Which brands of minis did you use? With the convertions you made they really stand out, great job!
I also like the yellowish-green tone you used on their skin, looks a lot better that most of the orks i've seen with dark-green skin tones.
cheers-

They are all Citadel miniature components with parts from loads of different kits, including but not limited too:

Orks (40k - Boyz, Nobz, Bikers, Looters), Empire (Pistoleers, Flagellants, Handgunners, Crossbows, Wizards), Dwarf Thunderers, Skeletons, Kroot (40k), Ogre Kingdoms, Bretonnians (Archers, Men-at-Arms), Warhammer Scenery (Chapel and Watchtower), Skaven, and even Space Marines! (40k - parchment and scrolls from Termintors).

Waaaagh!
This new witch hunter must be really dangerous, looks mad. Another brilliant model of yours, although I'd rather paint the scales on his cloak in another color. But even without that, it's a really good mini.

Hehehe, you are not dutch right? Heftig is also a dutch word, very ironcally translated as follows:

- violent
- fierce
- vehement

That said, the models are fantasticly GS-ed and painted as well! Like I said earlier, can't wait to see the rest of the warband!

[edit]

By the way ... grimmig in dutch is translated to :

grim
grimly
fierce
ghastly

so ... if this is unintentional ... you rule at making new names! Very Happy

I think he's using german-like words in the names and yes, we dutch 'benefit' from that...

Ahahahahaha! Love the Sigmork-ites! Nice idea, it's a lot of fun to see your incarnations of orcs mimicking various human cultures.

Kinda like the Ogre maneaters, but (in my opinion) with far more potential for modelling, gaming, and hilarity!

Can't wait to see the rest of the mob painted up.

Cheers guys! Gobbo Freak is right vampirekhaine, I was using Word's thesaurus to find word that summed up the Witch Hunter attitude and then Google translator to turn them in German words. I made a list of about 50 possibles then picked the ones I liked and suited each model as I built it.

The fact they are also Dutch words, with similar meanings is a very pleasant surprise!
