Welcome to Librarium Online!
Do we have any news/rumours around the 2nd wave of Fantasy Orc and Goblin models?
I seem to remember the beginning of May being rumoured as the release time.
What are people expecting?
I would say that Mangler squigs are pretty much sure to be there but what else?
Models for the 2 new Goblin characters maybe? New Pump wagons?
I doubt we will see anything at all.
May is all about Tombkings for Fantasy with releases no doubt spread over several weeks in may. With the fantasy expansion "Storm of Magic", also coming in July with new buildings and monsters i doubt Orcs will have any time solt before autumn.
Lets not forget that there was a wave or orc releases before the new book anyway, consisting of new trolls, and boar boys. That combined with those models that came out with the book is prety substantial when you look at some fantasy releases (e.g. beastmen).
How ever, GW like to throw a curve ball every other day of the week so dont put things off the cards just yet. With rumours that GW are also planning on a full move to plastics you will in future see your metal models change, but with so many lines to play with, just when orc metals will get done is a mystery.
There will be some time before the next wave. Orcs and Goblins are one of those armies that have the majority of their units in plastic so GW can afford to concentrate on other armies first.
Savage Orc Warboss Pleeeeez
if your desperate for a savage orc warboss just buy the avatars of war savage orc model. looks good and is produced by ex gw staff so looks very similar to gw products. Dont expect to have your local gw store or tournament let you use it cos they can be a bit funny about that kind of thing but definatly worth a look. i got ine and it looks great.you are stuf with 2 hand weapons though unless you want to convert it.
With the fact that there is little to discuss reference this topic.
