    Fifteen pounds of Orcs, and more

    Hello everybody.

    This is a log on the heaviest of all armies. Over the last seventeen years I have collected some 15 lbs of Orcs. But itīs not a 45.000 points army, but almost completely metal/pewter/lead whateveryouwannacallit. And itīs growing!
    My aim is to own every single metal mini GW has ever made for Orcs and Goblins. This might sound a bit insane, and I know itīs a long road to go. But I must do it! The line I draw is, that I wonīt collect the models with solid bases. Only slotta bases.

    Letīs see what I have so far.



    A bit blurry, so give you a left and right flank shot.





    The trained eye will have spotted the flaw!
    Plastic!
    Yes, you see plastic boars and even two completely of plastic consisting chariots. Well I said I want all the metal minis, not that I wonīt have plastic minis in the Army. Because itīs an army I play with. An absolute horror to transport, especially for big battles.
    But still I must say, I hate the plastic stuff.
    Even though I have to mention that some of my stuff is missing in the pic. First missing are about a hundred nightgoblins. The reason is, of course, the table is too small. Also not in the pic, another twenty Orcs, some of the stinkies bathing in acetone, some of them being crossbow dudes I have no complete unit of yet.

    There actually is no Black Orc unit. Reason for this: I hate doubles when collecting stuff. The latest Black Orcs in metal were cool, but only four different sculpts of them. So I will pick up these, some character models, and fill the ranks with old stuff, Gamezone Orcs and the Mothercrushers of old.

    What is the colour scheme you ask?

    Well, classic, of course!



    So what is this all about?
    You will hopefully see three things: First complete, or at least progress in my collecting project. Second, after all these years giving the horde a decent paintjob. And third, their enemies of old, the stunties. For them I feel the same urge. I already have some of them. Only five pounds yet, but it may get better...


    Next post wil show some of the painting I did on a few models and units.

    Re: Fifteen pounds of Orcs, and more

    Now some closer views on some minis I already painted this winter.

    I will regularly show row by row pics for you to see what great scupts GW put out in the good old days. There are so many characterful models, itīs a blast to take some time for the details. As well as that, I will show some excellent minis made by other companies.

    First off, a Savage Orc bowmen unit wip.



    The actual pumpwagon is already a classic imo.



    Boss of bosses, not old, but good!



    One of the classic Goblin chariots.

    Re: Fifteen pounds of Orcs, and more

    And last post for tonight.
    What have other companies done to make me happy?

    A great shaman, awesome sculpt, insane detail.








    And a HUGE boar rider made by Gamezone.
    What a beast. Heavy as crap, already have the second one under construction. The standard bearer.
    WIP of course..




    So much for now, let me know what you think.

    Especially if you have old minis you donīt like anymore, or if you know where to get some (except ebay, guess where mine are from).

    Tips, tricks, good catalogue pages appreciated.

    Greets,

    Very nice stuff mate. It is hard to tell in the big picture, but the smaller ones you showed show a very nice attention to detail in your painting. Keep it up.

    I love gamezone, the fact that there horses and ridden animals are not all the same is a definite plus.

    So, I do notice a few missing models...

    The old pumpwagon... definitely need to get your hands on one. And the old giant (not the marauder giant, but the one that was designed for Orcs and Goblins).

    Re: Fifteen pounds of Orcs, and more

    Hey mousekiller! Thanx!
    Thank you too Azhagmorglum!

    Nice to have you here. I love your stuff. Your trolls and snots especially.

    Yes, I know, an awful lot of minis is missing still. Not only the pumpwagon, which is quite easy to get btw, or the giant. The wyverns. All of them! My favorite is the classic from 1987. With the dude with the sloppy feet riding it. But also Azhag, the shaman, and the boss. I also plan to get the other giants, as there are the marauder one and the Albion giants. Thatīs gonna be expensive I guess.

    What really bothers me is that the iron claw goblins are so hard to get outside the UK. Orcs I have many, but gobbos...

    While at it, a few pics. You like Nightgobbos, donīt you?



    Guess i take a shot with white background next time.

    One of the classic warmachines. Only the Manmangler and a ballista missing in that category.



    Well, we know these, donīt we.. But there is a great many trolls still to get out there. The classics are amongst the finest i have seen. In this category I have a lot of space for other manufacturers.





    Thanks for looking in.

    Stay tuned,

    Bart

    Wow, that unit classic orcs is great! I really like this stuff!

    And a question about the boar boy, is he removable from the boar? Or are his legs moulded to the thing?

    I love the old orcs and gobs (well, mainly the gobs, ok), this is a cool project
    "subscribes"
    Btw, although your orc unit is masterfully painted, I have one question: why is there ONE green base in the unit?

    Another big O&G army is inspiring me to do more efforts on painting my own green horde.
    I really like the old school orc unit!

    Great topic, great work. I am particularly impressed with grimgor. Do you mind passing on your method for painting greenskins? I just started an orc and goblin army and am about ready to paint.

    Wow, on day offline, and so much feedback! Thanx for all the kind words.

    @ D35toy3r: Yes, you will time after time Iīll get them all. Limited Eds. aswell. I guess you meant the Orc with arms crossed and a snot doing same? Iīll get that one too.

    @ Ubercarp: If you are interested, then I gladly share my recipe!

    @ N810: Yes, indeed he is his brother. One of he reasons I bought that one.

    @ Urgat: The green base was a test. I wanted the ultimate green experience, and thought the brown was too 40k-ish. After all itīs not. But I didnīt change that one base for an unknown reason yet.

    @ the others, thanks for looking in, and yeah, those Stone trolls are the s**t. They kick serious butt. Comic Fantasy at its best. As goes for all the old skool stuff.

    WAAAAaaagh Moonswamptribe
