I have been working on this unit a little at a time over the past week, and I finished them this morning. These are my third (and final) unit of pig-faced orcs from Dragonbait Miniatures. I REALLY like these figures.
I hope to have these on the table for a rules play test in a week or so. That game will likely involve my pig-faced orcs, supplemented by some Prince August home-cast orcs from 1984 (painted by my friend Ma’k), and a unit of Old Glory Dwarf Wars orcs. They will be fighting some portion of my hobbit army.
It has been a long time since I have posted anything on the blog. Work and life have interfered. I’m sure that both people who read the blog didn’t miss anything. 🙂
I have been developing Wars of Orcs and Dwarves, which is the general fantasy, massed battles application of Wars of Ozz. As I began development, I realized I had very few fantasy figures. Those I had were individual figures for skirmish games or RPGs. I have been painting hobbits like crazy. Now that the hobbit army is nearly complete, I have begun to work on orcs and goblins for them to fight.
I decided to go with AD&D yellow skin on my orcs instead of GW green. I really like the look of them.
My orcs and goblins are a mix of Old Glory and pig-faced orcs from the recent Dragon Bait Miniatures Kickstarter.
