Orcs & Goblins by Subedai

Orcs & Goblins were my main army in 3rd Edition back in the day, but the horde has become somewhat scattered over the years (not that it was ever very coherent or complete) so I am pretty much starting again from scratch.

First unit I finished are my original old Arrer Boyz which I gave new bases and a paint refresh.

Currently on my work bench, the Marauder Orc Regiment. I've got 20 of these, about half are getting a paint refresh, the rest I'll paint from scratch.

Re: Orcs & Goblins by Subedai

Very nice. it seams you are doing something very similar to me, in that when a paint job is not up to scratch rather than stripping and starting again you are improving old PJs with shading, highlighting and new bases.

Anyway are you missing the leader for that Marauder MB2 Orc regiment, the chap with the mace? I may well have a spare knocking about.

Can be seen here (or on my own orc thread):

Yes, I am going for the refurbishment option wherever possible, it saves a lot of time. There are not many models left in that category though. If there is just a single layer of paint on a miniature and it needs a full repaint, I also just paint over it rather than stripping first, seems like a lot of hassle for little or no gain.

I do have the leader, but thanks for the offer. He is the next one I am going to finish, and he's probably going to be my (at least interim) general for the whole horde.

Thanks! I'll continue to loot the old books for banner and shield designs, copying stretches my freehand skills to their limits already.

Re: Orcs & Goblins by Subedai

Finished the leader of the regiment. I think I'll use variations of his shield design for the banner and the shields of his troops.
