    Issue: Modelling shields on Black Orcs?!

    Ok so the shields in the Black Orc kit don't look great and if you put them on they won't rank up.

    I've never actually had shields on my Blorcs even though I have had them in the army list and had no WYSIWYG complaints since the models already have their hands full. I've been considering putting a few shields on their back but not sure if that will look so great either.

    How do you all model shields on Black Orcs or do you not bother?

    i didnt bother with shields on blorcs, it makes em look like pansies. On my normal orcs i tried the same once and i instantly got remarks that they had 2 choppas and no shield at all!
    not so with the black orcs.

    Ive put homemade shields, from sprues, on some of mines, not done painting them but could upload some pics tonight anyway, i think it went kind of well =)

    Ok, pics added... Out of one blackorc box and some old orcs from the old starterbox I managed to make 21 blackorcs and 1 blackorc warboss... The shields are made from sprues glued together and rounded the corners up...

    And btw, any suggestions on improvements?

    I've found some good solutions. The plastic boar boys come with some reasonable plastic shields that will go on their backs also the metal direct only shields might work in the same way.

    that shielded black orc on the right is awesome! too bad the shield is turned to the back

    The direct only shields do look pretty bad ass, and the boar boys' new ones

    Here is one i converted, still need to do the rest of the unit. I am taking some random shields, in this case from a bret man at arms. Just chop off the left hand weapon and attach the shield.
