Thanks to Golgfag for the offer. I should have a reasonable(ish) sized force if all my painting goes to plan though. Might be good for a back up in case it all goes wrong however!

I'd certainly like to see more half orcs joining in, late or otherwise!

The Steppe warriors and Citadel & Chronicle Wolf riders will be traveling up anyway, so they'll be available to anybody who would care to use em. I'll also be bringing a crew of Half-orcs, which I'll be using in the Warhammer Ahoy game (I too think these chaps need a better press, so, am giving them a run out!) so should also be available. :D

If everyone is bringing enough minis with them then I can always have the Steppe horsemen and wolfriders as extra objectives - can you persuade them to join your force or will they be hostile?

Would it be possible to join in after the Electric sheep game, I'm guessing it'd be lunch time. I should have 22 half orcs including a shaman and a hero and 10 black orcs. I could also bring a troll and some mounted chaos thugs if they are needed.

You're more than welcome mate - could be interesting to have your boys come on as a trailing force to support Van Loon's Hobgoblin renegade out for revenge or would you prefer to be a separate entity in terms of the narrative of the game?

Either way there's nothing to stop you working together (or not!) and depending how you want your lot to figure in the narrative, I'll come up with a objective for them.

By the way Paul - where are your Steppe horsemen from.

By that I mean which manufacturer not which part of Cathay ;)

Their a selection of different manufacturers - Foundry, Gripping Beast etc to give as wide a spread of poses as possible, I've about two hundred models, which act as one my generic Steppe armies, when I play ancients hence my earlier question of do you want any more.
