    20.000 points Orc and Goblins w.i.p.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm a long time lurker at warseer, and now I'd like to start a thread myself.
    What I enjoy the most are the rumours of course and the projectlogs. Seeing people building and painting beautiful armies is what makes me happy and gets me stimulated to paint myself.

    I've been collecting orc & goblins since 1993, so I've got quitte a few. I tried different armies but always went back to the greenskins. I've already painted some 6000 points, but only recently painted the orcs and goblins in a way that suits me. After seeing The Lord of the Rings, I deceided I was done with the bright green skintone of my orcs. I wanted them to look more 'real' and sinister. So lots of browns, greys and rusted metal.

    The banners will all be brown with black icons. It should become a coherent colour range, as this ties the models together. Also the skintone will be ranging from black, dark green, grey or even reddish, but most will be olive/greyish green.

    I'm mixing all my models, so for instance you will see:
    - 4 generations of giants;
    - some models manufactured by other companies like Grenadeer and Game Zone;
    - savage orcs;
    - night goblins;
    - goblins;
    - black orcs;
    - regular orcs, the bulk of my army, lots of foottroopers and lots of cavalry.

    Old school orcs -which are smaller than the 6th erdition orcs - will be regular orc boyz, the newer bigger orcs will be big uns' and some will be converted to black orcs.

    Now, about a warboss.
    Grimgor Ironhide has lots of appeal to me. So I might choose him.

    But if I have more than one unit of Big Un's (wich seems reasonable in a 20.000 points army), so I need Gorbad Ironclaw.

    But the one orc I really like to be the warboss is Morglum Necksnapper. I need to come up with some rules for Morglum. Maybe a mix between Grimgor and Gorbad's rules. or something like that. Maybe even converting the Gorbad model... Any suggestions are welcome.

    To play this army would be almost impossible, as it's just to big. You would have to make houserules, like extend the range of leadership of your general from 12 to 24 inch and stuff like that.

    Here are the first pictures.

    ps I.m not trying to steal the thunder of the guy who has the 10 000pts and growing(greenskins) thread going on. I wish him good luck and maybe we can get people motivated to make a large Warhammer force. I really dig the Apocalypse thing in 40k right now, maybe an expansion like that will see the light of day for Warhammer fantasy in the near future.

    Fantastic stuff, Guess it's too much to hope that you're UK/Nottingham based? As I have 27K of dwarves that would love to play this army, just visualise a classic clash of natural enemies writ large. That would have to be the ultimate beer and pretzels (pardon the Americanism) game.

    Re: 20.000 points Orc and Goblins w.i.p.

    I'm from the north of the Netherlands, so playing that battle would be difficult to arrange I'm afraid! Just read througt the oktober issue of White Dwarf packed full of all things Apocalypse 40K. There's a 42.000 points battle report and it's just amazing. Would love to play battles of this scale in Warhammer fantasy...

    Next weekend I hope to give you an update on my army.
    My planning is as follows:
    First I'm making all the bases (texturing and undercoating). I guess that I will be busy with that for two more weeks.
    Than I will clean all my models (with file and knife) and undercoat them. Some models I undercoat in white, but most will be undercoated with black.
    That probably will take another 3 to 4 weeks.
    Than I will attach the models to the bases and arrange them in units...
    Than it's painting time. Working like this can be a little dull, but it's the only way to go I think.

    Re: 20.000 points Orc and Goblins w.i.p.

    Well it's been a month since I last updated my log, so what have I been doing? Now that I've got most of the bases textured and basecoated, my plan is to built the army in steps of 2000 points. I almost finished a 2000 points army of night goblins. Then I will do 2000 points of orcs, and (hopefully) so on. So these 2000 points armies will be battle-ready armies themselves, with the correct amount of core units and so forth. That's part of the fun, to find out if the armies are a match for eachother!

    I still need to do 4 snotlingbases and 2 snotlingpumpwagons. I hope to finish them very soon. I also made an army display base of wood and foamboard, wich I textured as the bases.

    I read some instructions on how to photograph miniatures here on Warseer. So today I bought a digital camera and expirimented a little. They're not as good as I hoped they would be, but maybe with practice I'll get beter at it.

    Now I'm going to drink a beer.

    cheers

    Re: 20.000 points Orc and Goblins w.i.p.

    I bought a camera with manual apeture settings to increase the depth of focus.
    But the user manual is a mistery to me!

    Back in the nineties I coverted a few squigs from blue horrors. I also made a couple from clay as a little modelingexpiriment. See the pictures of squigunits. Suffice to say it stayed with that one modelingexpiriment...

    And some more. What I like about this army is that models from 20 years ago mix with new models.
    When I've painted the snotlings I will post pictures of them and hopefully a not so blurry photo of the total army.

    Wow... took me 3,5 years to get to 5000 points of greenskins...
    Good luck to you mate.

    Maybe you should include some kind of points-counter in your posts, so we can see if you really live up to your promise

    Lovin the look of the army, ive got about 8-9k worth of orcs and gobbo's but go for a more clean crisp look. This army has a proper dark, dirty feral look to it that I love the look of but would never be able to do mine like.

    fair play to you my friend and the best of luck to you. take a look at my orcs below.

    Re: 20.000 points Orc and Goblins w.i.p.

    Thanks for the kind words everybody! The day before yesterday I painted 4 bases snotlings, yesterday I painted pumpwagon number one and today pumpwagon number two. That means that waargh Skarsnik is now completed.


    The snotling with the halberd is the oldest miniature I've ever painted, its a Ral Partha goblin from 1979. I have another one, not with a halberd but with two sticks in his hands, that still needs to be painted, but thats for another army...

    Re: 20.000 points Orc and Goblins w.i.p.

    And here are some pictures of the total army.

    The displaybase is very moderate, but it's the first one I made. The units 'fall' in place and they're easily lifted from the display. That's because of the handy triangular holes at the back of each unit. With a finger you can lift the movement tray so you can grab the unit.

    To finally have painted an army is a wonderful feeling. On to the next.

    I'm thinking about that at the moment. Probably the army I was painting this summer. It has a orc great shaman on a wyvern as the general. Lots of orc infantry and arrer boyz and two rocklobbers...
