From AaronH - 20 28mm Orcs from GW (105 points)

This entry is twenty spear Orcs. These are 28mm models from Games Workshop.


These are the classic plastics from 6th edition. They will be used for Kings of War but I still think a unit needs full command, even if they don't have a use in game.


There are some good and bad things about these models. I absolutely love the faces on them; full of character and menace. Their proportions are definitely cartoonish though and the join between the body and the legs can be pretty rough.


They are big and full of menace. They tower completely over mass a Lord of the Rings model.


The banner is a variation of the symbol on the shields. The difference being what an orc would paint on some random cloth and what a dwarf slave would craft for them.


My lighting was bad by the time I got home (after dark) but these models really have a lot of nice detail while not being over the top.


The highlighting on the faces doesn't show up in these pictures, which is a shame because it is my favorite part of the paint job.

So Aaron is back for a second bite of Orc goodnes (that just sounds wrong) today , with a further century worth of troublemakers - cracking Orcs....the details do look good. I am going to top that up to 105 for the whole effect as well.

    1. Thanks Clint. I actually had a banner that looked more like the shields and then painted it over and did this one. It just seemed more appropriate.

  7. Very nice. Great to see these are ready for Kings of War. A most excellent game. I got a bunch of these that I may get around to rebasing for inclusion in a evil Dwarf list. Yours look really good. cheers
