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!
I managed to photograph and upload my old Warhammer Empire army. Still adding some units over time, but mostly done. 500+ strong souls for Sigmar!

A birthday gift dropped an Imperial Roman army into my lap so: Hail Caesar, here come! The painting effort was fairly efficient due to the relatively low detail of the Warlord models compared to overloaded Games Workshop styles that I am used to. Very satisfying to be able to knock out a full army in a few weeks. I already bought a few hundred Gallic/Celtic/Germanic/Dacia/Sarmatian models so that these doughty Romans will have opponents. Here is to painting 500+ naked dudes…
Detailed photos of all the units are on this page. Enjoy.
More Orcs. One of the chariots has boss-like model in the back just in case I want to ever uses it as a character mount. Both have been upgraded to the “modern” boars to fit in with the rest of the horde. At the bottom is an old school Orc Shaman.
