PostSubject: Orcs   Mon 31 Jan 2011 - 11:51

This is the start of my Orc Warband.
I got some more models but they are not done yet, Im getting a box of Black Orcs this week since Im starting a Black Orc Warband. The colours of my city (Den Haag) and the football club are green and yellow that is why I decided to give them some yellow touches cause the Orcs are green anyway. Im really proud of the Orcs with the half green half yellow face dont know why but he just looks cool Very Happy

This are the first Orcs I ever painted cause I only painted Marines so far, I really love the washes so I make good use of them.

Anyway this is the Boss and some of his Henchmen hope you guys like them.

You seem to have a nice and clean style of painting. But the pics are just a little dark for me to see enouht to give advice, if you care about that stuff.
Are the shoes supposed to be in the color of the base?

Thanx for the nice comments.
The metal in done really easy and no the shoes are not supposed to be the same colour as the base BUT when you are walking trough a messed up city your shoes will get dirty. So I dont mind if there is a bit of grey on the normal brown or yellow shoes Very Happy

Also played my first game with the lads yesterday and they did pretty good.

Looks good, though it is a bit hard to judge, since the pics are on the dark side. If you want to amend that, there are some pretty good photo tutorials on the forum.

Myself, I would like to be able to see the skin a bit better.

I'll second DeafNala here: congrats on your success. Orcs are fun to play, and fun to play against.

Thanx for the nice comments everyone.

Orcs are sure fun to play Very Happy
I got a little bit sad two weeks ago and I thought I had picked the wrong warband but after playing them again and the game went ok, a bit of luck and a bit of unluck I now know Orcs are the warband for me for now.

Im building an Orc with standard to act as a supporter, he just have to stand on the highest tower with the colours and logo of my city and footbalclub. He does not count or anything he is just there to support the boys who are in combat Very Happy
I put him up when he is done.

COOL MINI! Leg It is a legit name. Having a rooting section is a FINE idea...if the Lads hit it big, you could purchase a standard & benefit from an improved routing roll. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Well Leg'it did not have to leg'it today Very Happy and he did his job cause he screamed the Orcs to victorie Very Happy

Played two practise games (campaign is tarting next week) and I utterly destroyed some Bretonnians who were bold enough to step onto my Orc district.

The second game was a 3 men free for all were my Orcs routed the Beastmen and in stood strong when the incoming Skaven came forward. Destroying the Skavens forcing them to rout and taking only 2 casualties that whole game Very Happy

Men I love the Black Orcs Very Happy

Thanx I'm a fan of minies that are not to shiny when they have to go into battle.
That is just personal preference.

Yesterday I got myself a Troll from the new plastic kit and been thinking about putting him in the campaign straight away.
Im running a 10 Orc Warband now to start with and I have read at some other posts that it is pretty hard to save for a Troll when you are in the middle of a campaign.

I have not payed a campaign in years but what is the amount of gold that you can rell in when all 5 heros stay alive and I roll normally for the searching for gold?

Also what would the Orc players on this forum suggest.

Start with my 10 Orc warband and save up for the Troll OR Just get rolling with the Troll from the start and just have your heros and maybe two cheap Orcs at the start and get more Orcs when the gold starts commin in?

I started with a troll a few times, but most of the times he only stands drolling on the spot, so I decided not to take a troll anymore...

I started the campaign with the troll and it went ok.
He did not to anything but my opponent was pretty scared of him.
When I lost two of my Orcs I voluntarely routed cause I did not know how the in between campaign system worked for 100% so I thought well I jsut eran some cash get two more Orcs for that cash and steamroll over my two opponents next week Very Happy

Anyway this is the troll.



I decided to keep the same colour green and yellow on the Troll cause I wanted him to be part of the army so that is why the green and yellow. Ofcourse it is also a reference to my football club Very Happy

After a couple of Campaign games the Black Orcs are doing pretty good and I need a Lad that got talent.
I hope I will roll that one pretty fast now cause I made a model for when I roll it.

I made him with the same weapons that my Henchmen use a Sword and Axe but only of a better quality and ofcourse he has bigger arms Very Happy

Hope you guys like him.



I also made two Nuttaz just to try them out.
I made them look the same with helmet and screaming since they are propably brothers or long time friends.



I know the pics are not of the best quality and I will make pics of the whole warband when Im at the club with some terrain so it looks better.
