Re: My Greenskins

Thanks Ogg, I do love Kev Adams' miniatures.

LilBroGrendel, great to hear that, I'm a big fan of both of those films.

And thanks Subedai, glad you like the lived in look, you have some great greenskins.

I have some new things finished, a bit more modern than some here which I hope won't prove too controversial.
First a PLASTIC giant...

Re: My Greenskins

Next up is my general in a boar chariot, again plastic, but I have used a Goodwin ogre for my orc warboss

Re: My Greenskins

Ah that Goodwin ogre makes a cracking warboss. His forward lumbering stance works great for a charioteer. What I appreciate so much about a conversion is when the perceived weight and counterweight of all the parts add upp really well with whatever implied movement there is. Can be such a headache.

And I also like the mix with later generation parts. Full of oldschool, but a new creation. Keeps this hobby from stagnating. Coolest thing I've seen in a long while, actually. And MAN, that paintjob... I hate you :D

Re: My Greenskins

Thanks again Gallivantes, but I think I've some way to go to reach your converting skills.

Meanwhile I've finished some goblin wolfboys

Almost entirely Marauder Miniatures, but with one Nick Lund wolf for the boss.

Re: My Greenskins

And another five, again mainly Marauder, but with a Citadel leader on an old Ral Partha wolf, and an early Citadel wolf for the goblin with the flail.

Re: My Greenskins

The Ogre Boss looks great, I wanted always to see how one of this Ogres comes out in orcish flesh tones. The couch man looks almost like a Heroquest Orc, but the jaw is to small of course.

Re: My Greenskins

Thanks Mophus, glad you like the ogre dressed as orc warbles. The charioteer does indeed look a bit like a Heroquest orc, I hadn't thought of that as I painted it, he is a metal miniature though, an earlier Citadel one I believe.

I have made some progress and finished up a couple of orc units that had been languishing half-painted for too long.

First up

30 orc boys using mainly the modern plastic Citadel orcs which I'm not that fond of. I included them here mainly for the sake of completeness but also because the command group has a bit more Oldhammer flavour, the boss with flail is a Marauder giant black orc, the drummer from a Middlehammer command blister and the standard bearer is converted from an old Bad Moon space ork. The banner design is borrowed from an old Paul Bonner illustration, one of favourites, of a Bad Moon ork nob retinue from WD128.

Next up

Another unit of 30 orc boys based on the much earlier plastic orcs from the Warhammer Regiments box, these troops formed the backbone of my original adolescent orc and goblin army long since lost to the mists of time. It was great to revisit them and give them a better paintjob. Here the banner design is lifted from Warhammer Armies, a great and continuing source of inspiration.

Hope you enjoy.

Re: My Greenskins

I think the biggest complement I can give is you have inspired me to not only get back into the hobby but to start collecting orcs . So keep up the great work

Re: My Greenskins

Thanks very much Dazza, you have some wonderful models and if I play any part in making you paint more I'm very happy about that, if they're green then even better.
