Welcome to Librarium Online!
Yeah I know, another project thread. What can I say? I get distracted easily.
I was given 2 boxes of Goblins by a mate and 4 Trolls by another mate so I thought. "Y'know I always did want to start another army other than Chaos". So here I am. Orcs.
This isn't a huge project as the army is only 1000pts. The painting will be gaming standard and fairly quick so don't expect Golden Daemon Standard. I want to get this army done and out of the way so I can get back to my Chaos.
Here's where I am so far.
Da Boss. Azgob Face Beater. Made from an old GorkaMorka Nob witht he blades off some Ogres.
Fizzbug Gonad Stompa. Azgobs trusty Battle Standard Bearer and general Grot enforcer.
Da Ladz! There will be another Rank but I've run out of bitz! Those stingy boys at GW only put 16 spears in a box of 19 Orcs!!!
Da Murkas - Some old River Trolls. No where near done but getting there. The skin is Catachan Green, the Scales Shadow Grey. Then the whole lot was washed with Devlan Mud. Then It was washed again with a mix of Devlan Mud and Thrakka Green.
Nice looking stuff so far dude. I don't like those troll minis, but you're painting them up quite nicely so far.
Oh and I think they give you 16 spears, because the other three minis in the box are for the command. Stupid, but it's what they do.
another thread..........are you trying to beat Mousekiller for the amount of armies you have pal?
Now I am not sure but I think I have a load of orc boyz spear arms in my bitz box you can have mate, if you PM me with your address I will get them out and post them to you.
I have 9 different Marine armies that I can think of. All in all that's way over 10000pts. I have 7 guard armies, near about 10000pts. I've got 2k of LOTR's Dwarves, 1k of Uruk-hai (not War of the ring), 6k of Fantasy Chaos and then some random characters and units left over from old armies. Then there is all the Specialist Games, atleast 7000pts in Gothic, Epic, Necromunda Gangs gallor and some Blood Bowl too.
It's shocking the amount of stuff I actually own. I gonna need to sell some of it when I move to Australia next year.
EDIT: I've got a 750pt Empire Army too. All made out of the old Metal Men at Arms.
KUFFY: Aye I'm not a fan either but I don;t like the Stone trolls either. The normal Trolls are cool but at almost £14 a pop there's no way I'm doing a unit. These guys I was offered for free so I could hardly say no could I
That is stupid. They also give you the command sprue from the old Fantasy Starter set. It's even got Orc legs for a Boar Rider in there (which was the general in the starter set!)
Then you should buy the new plastic trolls. Awesome looking sculpts. I just wish they did more than River Trolls in plastic.
Yeah, it is a bit odd, but you must remember that this orc plastic kit was from 6th ed. So really old. I hope the next kit is better, considering what they have done with the new elves.
Nice work on the trolls the scales look really nice against the murky skin colour. Only thing I'd say and it is minor, the colour of your bosses nails are the same as his gums perhaps change one? Just a thought the rest of him is reall nice he looks mean with those choppers.
Sorry about the late reply. I've been on holiday and work has been pretty tough going and leaving me pretty shattered. No time for toys or L.O. Just beer then bed.
Anyway, enough excusses. Here's my update.
Finished the Trolls. Bases n all........
.........and done my Shaman too. Although I still need to paint that severed head on his belt. He's called "Da Big Wogg"
FlayedOne: Cheers for the comment. Yeah the claws do look odd. I think I will, at some point, go back and do them bone.
Kuffy: Hehe, too much stuff I think. I've got a Blood Angel army, a 2k Gunline Marine army, a 1.5k Marine Gunline army and various armies I'm going to get rid of. I might put some pics up on this site and see if anyone wants them. They're not golden daemon standard but they're Gaming standard or better in most cases. In my opinion anyway.
I like the basing you've done on the orcs an trolls, all the little details, like the rocks being different colour and the mushroom with the big boss, it makes them really come alive.
And i cant get my eyes off of the snake hiding in his neck
The trollscales are simply pro work.
