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.

Let me think.......
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 :p

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!)

Will you adopt me? I can cook to an almost michelin star restaurant standard, I can provide well above average personal security and have a decent knowledge of Land Law.

Ok an Update! Yeah i know! Rather quick wtith this army! The Trolls aren't finished but they really are getting there! Just the Big bits of Bone and the wood to do. Oh and the hair and random bits of stone.

Wow. That.. that is a lot of stuff. o_O "some of it"? :p If I had money, I might have taken "some" of it off your hands. Oh well...

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.



* looks at his own models *

Oh well.
Sigh...

((Not forgotten about this thread either!))

Cheers Digger. To be honest though the scales are just shadow grey with 2 washes and then lightly drybrushed with ShadowGrey/White mix.

Ok, an update of sorts. I haven't done any painting as I've been concentrating on my Chaos but I have been doing some building. I've finished the Orc regiment (I had to scratch build some spears) and I've built a Goblin Bowmen unit.



Now I've done my Chosen for my Chaos I'm going to paint the Orc regiment. It wont be anything fancy as I really can't be bothered!! I'm just going for black cloths with checkers here n there, brown straps etc.

Not sure what else to add to the army now though. I've got 160pts left. Might add some wolf riders or something.

Wow.. um, where is the paint? :p Snap to it boy!

Coming from you that's rich :p Paint will come soon enough! I'm off today and tomorrow so I'll hopefull get some more painting done. The Orcs shouoldn't take too long hopefully. Although there is lots of flesh *sigh*


Lore Seeker: Aye they are quite cool. I had a game with this arm last night. I know I know, unpainted models - Blasphemy! but hey I wanted a game! The riders did alright considering Gork stepped on them twice! They were the only models left at the end of the game. My poor orcs died to a man playing Chaos.

Played with this arm? That's nice. ;) Haha, I love that spell it is just fun to witness, especially when Gork decides to stomp on the greenies. XD

Ah, the trolls shaped up nicely.
I don't know about you, but I'm a fan of fairly bright highlights that will still stand out on the tabletop :) On the scales for example. By the way, I think a box of the plastic trolls would mix fairly well with the old ones. A similar paintjob goes a long way. I've got IoB rat ogres and multipart rat ogres mixed in a unit. Works fine.

I only need one arm to beat people. Which is lucky as I lost my left arm in a shark punching contest.

BeardedOne: Cheers. Yeah on gaming armies that's the effect I go for. So they look alright from a foot or two away but nothing else extravagant. I find that adding a few freehand bits like symbols on shields, banners and in the case of Orcs, Chequers goes a long way

As for the new Trolls, they're HUGE! They make the old plastic ones look tiny. A paint job might help them blend in but the size difference is quite noticeable.

Great job Borak, I have to say unlike nearly everyone else I think I like those old trolls more than the new ones. But then again its like trying to decide which I like more Mars or Moro. Both are awesome in their own way.

Great paint job and I'm looking forward to seeing how the rest of the ladz turn out. Also delighted to see the old Gorkamorka mini being used its always been one of my favourite ork/c mini.

Alas, I do understand how it feels to play unpainted models. Me and my friends are way more players than painters, and so we mostly play with a big chunk of our models in various states of completion.

And IMO the new Trolls are horrible, stick with the old ones.

Cheers,

Caveman: First off, Cheers!. Secondly, what's a Moro? The Old Gorka Morka Nobz are just plain awesome. My BSB is an old Nob too. Hell I even have that limited old one, the one that's got one foot on an ammo crate.

Seeker: I wouldn't go that far. I nlike the charm of the old ones. I do like the new ones but I prefer the old ones just........just because.
I do feel dirty playing with bare palstic though. It's bad enough with just undercoat but plastic? *shudders*

Anyway. A rather productive day actually. I've done loads of painting (in your face Kuffy). The skin still needs a highlight but the white, red, brown and straps are all done!!!!!
