PostSubject: Da Eegle Eye'z Tresh'a 'Untas.   Sun 5 Jun 2011 - 3:53

So I finally got to this, posting my Warband.

As you can see it's Greenskins, and some people at my gaming club joked about that shooty orc warbands doesn't do well got me thinking; "Hey, why shouldn't I make a shooty orc warband just to show them who's da boss in this town!".

And so my quest to salvation (or something) began so I started to loot through my bitz boxes for my Armoured Orcs (I just love those minis) and started putting together a Warband.

My warband has expanded a bit since I started (they were pretty expensive in the beginning, spending 200 gold on crossbows only for my heroes) as well as other needed gear. All models are, like said, armoured by models but everyone have yet to recieve a proppa' working armour that doesn't fall off in the middle of the battle (aka I need to get gold for that pesky armor, I've been saving every teef I had to get other stuff).

Enough rabbling talk, let's get on to the pictures and some introductions.

Here is the mob as a whole.




Heroes

Boss Grumlok Eegle 'eye, also wanting to be called "Kaptin" at times (habit he has taken after an encounter with a Reiklander Warband), and by orcy standards he is cunningly sneaky, but yet brutal as an orc should be.




As his "advisor" Grumlok have brought a shaman with him, Snik'snaga Wartbog. He's an orc to be reckoned with, and tough as nails and brutal for being a shaman, some of da boyz says he's a bit of a nutjob with a thick skull, but alas he is a shaman so they mostly ignore this weird behaviour.




Snagrim Uzdreg, Grumlok's longest living luitenant in the warband (and also biggest threat to him) is a tough orc as well as fierce in combat. Quick to fire with his crossbow he seldom lets any enemy get away from him.




Grimdreg Ded'eyez is the newest recruit since the last big 'un fell in combat against the fierce undead (and raised to be a zombie as well),Grimdreg is ded' shooty with his crossbow and enjoys to have shootin' competitions with the other lads.




Finally we have the lad who got a bit of "talent", talent for injuries as da boss sometimes says.
This git has gotten his leg cut off, brain smacked into a weird position, lost an eye and scars to brag about!




Henchmen

In the heart of the mob we have Da arrerz, a group of enthusiastic boyz who have picked up a thing or two when it comes to shootin' and fightin'!




The brutal orcs who called themselves da plinkas has only one survivor, but he is 'ard as nails and tough as old boots! (he also wear them)




This orc is the only pure combat orc henchman in the group. Armed with his halberd he takes on any foe he can get to!




Every mob needs some individuals who set up the campfires, tents and hunt down feracious squigs for them! That's right, da runts.
This group of da runt (and da uvver runt) is eager to take part of the fights in Mordheim... at distance.




And finally, the pet of the boss, his "beloved" Mr. Squiggles!




That's pretty much my Warband this far, once they get more recruits I will add them.

Looks good, my friend! I like the hint of rust på the metal parts. I also like the yellow and blue colours on thier cloths. It makes me think they might have raided some poor advetures from Nordland. Or... could it the that the orcs are from... Shocked ... Sweden?

Wonderful looking warband! Both painting and the conversions are great, and I especially like how you turned that 40k kommando into fb orc. Might have to borrow the idea if I ever get back to painting orcs. bounce
The whole idea of shooty orcs seems absurdly funny. Are they working well in the game?

Thanks you lot!

@Bratzor: Nordland it is~

@sianpää: They do surprisingly well actually. Being naturally ok in combat makes most of them able to take a hit or two. But the animosity do get in the way at times.

Sad news though, the lad with talent is now dead and will find his way to the shelves of victory.

I beg all of you for a moment in silence for his joyful but dangerous life.

Hehehe, the injured boy gave my beastman chieftain a well deserved experience point. Smile

Looking good, man. Sometimes models look better in photos than in real life. With these it is the other wau around they look better up close than in the photos.

Thanks ladz!

The armored one is Maggot, special standard bearer from the ruglud's armored orcs pack, and the other one is from the wolf chariot.

Where did you get the Shortbow for Maggot??? Did you have 2 chariots?

Nice models by the way. thumbsup

Really good stuff! Good colour depth and very characterful conversions!

As for Orcs and ranged combat: T4 is a big asset when it comes to being able to deliver shot after shot, so in many ways they're better than, say, Marienburgers, for a shooty warband.

Great looking warband with cool poses. Not to be too picky but the crossbows look a bit tiny, maybe they stole the crossbows from some elfs Smile

Blame Ruglug's Armored Orcs. They looted a dwarf hold of armor an crossbows and ended up with some teeny stunty crossbows.
