Superb bit of work - those look like a mean bunch.

More half-orcs. I painted the mounted hero (Grenadier barbarian) and two of the Alternative Armies hobgoblins. I sense a little tension in this photo!

I admit that I'm not fond of the paint color on kitty and may try touching it up.

Nice work, particularly like how you've painted the Macedonian star on the Despoilers shields 8-) As for the cat you're being a bit harsh, and easily sorted with a wash surely?

Thanks. I was trying to come up with a good, simple symbol for them and thought "black star." Sketched out a few sketched out ideas and ended up borrowing from a good historical design. (I had started but abandoned a 28mm Macedonian/Successor's army a while ago -- I's still like an excuse to return at some point.)

As for kitty... yeah, I'm thinking a thing wash or something to tone it down a bit.



Finished all five half-orcs, from an Alternative Armies hobgoblins pack. Oldschool sculpts, and the casting was a little rough, but the minis are expressive and dynamic. I'm a big fan of three of the five, still like one of the remaining two, and the guy with the club...I guess he can tag along just because he's in good company.

I'm very curious about the vintage and history of these sculpts. I'd love more minis like these, but the AA orcs seem to be from a variety of sources, even just within the few hobgoblin packs.
