Orcs from the World that was…

When the Warhammer World was killed by Games Workshop, I impulsively bought all the armies that I didn’t have yet (and all available models for each such army…). So now I am stuck with a few thousand Warhammer models. Slowly working my way through the pile with the Orcs first in the lineup. First some core infantry units – one of 30 (including a looted cow…), one of 25 (including a pig carrying barrels which is hard to see in the back now that I look at the photos 😦 ). I decided for irregular basing which fits with the wild style of the Orcs.

Updated Battlefleet Gothic pages

Updated photos for the BFG section including the

Chaos Fleet

Eldar Fleet

Imperial Fleet

Ork Fleet

These are mostly old models though the Chaos and Imperial fleets have been semi-recently upgraded with another 20+ extra ships between them (mostly “newer” models beyond the original rule book options). The Imperials are actually entirely repainted because I couldn’t reproduce the old blue colour and I am picky that way…

Mordheim Section Updated

The Mordheim section is now fully updated with new pictures. This includes the following previously posted warbands:

Undead Warband

Reiklander Warband

Middenheimer Warband

Kislev Warband

Skaven Warband

Dwarven Warband

Sisters of Sigmar Warband

Witch Hunter Warband

Hired Swords

Dramatis Personae

 

I am not working on uploading the backlog of completed warbands, including Orcs, Goblins and Averlanders. Some Beastmen, Carnival of Chaos, Ogres and Possessed are also on the horizon.

For now, the only new model in the pages above is a second Werewolf for my Middenheimers (the one of the right), the Witch Hunter and Marco Colombo.

Wave 3 – Back to Blogging

After a few years in hiatus, I will give blogging another try. This will be the third attempt after the initial burst in 2010-2012 and the revival in 2014-2015. Maybe the third time is the charm!

To inaugurate this third wave, I purchased a nice macro camera with fancy backdrops. I will be taking pictures of newly painted models as well as some of my existing collection. These will be updated over time – there are literally thousands of models to photograph – but the updates will come (12,000+ actually at current count :)).

On the painting side, will be fighting my way through a few major projects:

Warhammer 40k: I have a Blood Angel army to complete. Mostly vehicles and specialists which will take some time.

Warhammer: After the collapse of the Warhammer World, I bought a bunch of armies before they disappeared entirely. So now I have a whole bunch of unpainted Warhammer armies: Orcs and Goblins, High Elves, Ogre Kingdoms, Skaven, Chaos (Nurgle), and Vampire Counts. My Empire army also needs finishing while my Bretonnia and Dwarf forced need refurbishing. So there is plenty to do in this category. My first goal will be to complete two new armies – selected by my older kids as Orcs and High Elves – and ideally finish up the missing Empire units.

Specialist Games: I have tons of warbands, gangs, fleets, teams and even a few EPIC armies still to complete. I will paint these as fillers in between the big lots. My near term goal will be to finish up at least 5 skirmish groups and one of the missing EPIC armies (probably Tyranids).

Historical: I made a pretty decent dent in my SAGA list during the last wave of enthusiasm, but the unpainted pile is still large. Moreover, a recent birthday gift resulted in a whole Early Imperial Roman army for the Hail Caesar game system waiting for me on pristine sprues. So I will try to make a dent in that pile as well.

 

So, 3 full 28mm armies, finishing up two more, and topping it off with a handful of smaller warbands. I have a small head start – a few Orc units are painted already from a paint scheme test – but this will still keep me busy for a while.

As a teaser of what is to come, here is a new photo of some Forest Goblins that will be part of the above-mentioned Orc and Goblin army. More to come soon!
