Going Green!

I've always loved orcs of all kinds: fantasy, space, big, small - anything goes so long as they are green! I recently downloaded an old album I used to listen to as a kid (Status Quo - courtesy of my dad!). This is besides the point, however, it conjured up lots of memories of when I painted the old GW orcs and used to pour over back issues of White Dwarf. Orcs had so much character in those days!

Anyway, partly inspired by this, and just generally on the lookout for a new project, I picked up some 15mm Demonworld orcs from Ral Partha Europe. These for me really capture that nostalgic essence of my old school orcs, so I have set to work!

 Orc warriors with swords and shields

 Wolf riders with spears
 Spearmen (or should that be spearorcs?)

Standard bearer

And next some bits on the workbench awaiting the attention of my brush...
 Scorpion with Goblin rider

 So called 'Savage orcs' - but in my eyes, they are just 'arder and better armoured orcs
A Shaman not green, but still love the model - an ogre!

And my wife's efforts! - Have a cookie everyone!

Cheers, stay green!
