Slowly finishing up the remaining Empire units. This big block of Flagellants is the last “big formation” on the list. Now it’s down to the special characters and the big items (e.g. new style griffons, etc.). The unit filler is based on the old War Altar with a more suitable Prophet of Doom riding it.
Starting a Blackstone Fortress campaign during the lockdown. Here are the heroes from the main boxed set. Baddies and expansions are under way.
A full page of EPIC Tyranids is now up here. They are painted in the same scheme as my Battlefleet Gothic Tyranid fleet. Only a couple of armies to go for a complete EPIC collection…
Painting the Blackstone Fortress gave me an appetite for small themed forces. And then I saw the Gellerpox video by Midwinter Minis so I dug up the models in my “drawers of shame” and banged them out.
And we have a contingent of Night Goblins with their bouncy red friends. I have put more detailed images of all the Orc and Goblin models onto a dedicated page here. Still a bit of work to do but the core units are in place. A few giants, some trolls, lots of heroes – including some big ones – and then it’s all done.
A small contingent of Forest Goblins joins the mighty Waaagh. The spider riders are stock while the infantry unit is based on the old metal models from 30+ years ago with a big tree unit filler.
A couple more Black Orc heroes. Can’t ever have enough animosity fixers!
Black Orcs are the epitome of brute force. A nice block of 30 though I am basing many of them on 50x50mm or 75x25mm bases with fewer models per base than technically required. This creates a bit more space between the models which otherwise are really wedged tightly together.
Leading the force is the mighty Grimgor Ironhide and a generic Big Boss. Still working on a Black Orc Battle Standard Bearer to complete the line-up. They are based on 50x25mm bases to line up with the rest of the mob while having some space around them. It’s physically impossible to fit these models onto a single 25x25mm base in a formation…
Work on my “new” Orc army is progressing. I am going through these in thematic blocks. The regular Orcs are mostly done – baring some characters – in the few previous posts. This now adds the Savage Orc contingent.
The group is lead by Wurzag Da Great Green Prophet in both mounted and walking format. He is joined by two fellow shamans and a Big Boss to add some punch to the mob. I just love the old shaman models!
The main mob is 25 strong including a unit filler of a simplistic icon carried on the shoulders of the boyz.
A mounted group of ten boar boyz rounds out the Savage Orc contingent.
The kitbashed Tyranid fleet is finished. Full page here. This is the final Battlefleet Gothic fleet (and models). One game system down!
