    Orcs & Gobbo's, 5000 points and growing.

    Sooo... here's what's going on.
    Already got past 8000 points ready for battle, another 1500 in spare characters, special and rare choices, and about 2000 points of unpainted stuff. The aim is a versatile orc&gobbo horde that has at least one of everything, and usually a bit more. Progress is always slow with me, so I'll take my time and updates may take a while.

    I figured it would be nice to keep a bit track of what I still got to do, and what is done, during this log.

    Gray = Wishlist
    Red = somewhere between not assembled, through building and converting to applying greenstuff
    Orange = Base coated
    Yellow = WIP (painting)
    Green (as everything should be) = finished

    Re: Orcs & Gobbo's, 5000 points and growing.

    Okay, I also managed to find a last bit of daylight outside, so heres a few pics of the real stuff!

    Currently in the conversion department, boar boyz:



    I'm making these with the legs from the command sprue.

    And for painting, I'm now working on spider riders and trolls.
    One troll finished, two just one layer of dark angel green. I hope to finish these somewhere in the next few weeks:



    And spider riders. Two finished, 3 riders to go. I hope to get one or two of these done tomorrow:



    And lastly, I'm also working on Badruk 'Eadsplitta as champion for my second unit black orcs I just finished last week. No pic now, but when he's done, I'll try to snap a shot.

    Well, not the direct link to the original site, just grabbed some pics here and there, but heres the pics:

    For these, I used this example:

    For the next unit, I found this one:

    And for my spider boss, I was thinking this one:

    It's often nature that has the best 'inspiration'!

    Anyway, since it seems to be sort of a tradition here to post your workspace, here is mine:



    And next to it, the cupboard holding my army:



    If anyone is interested in close up pictures of anything, feel free to ask.
    Note though, that I'm usually only at home during weekends, so it might take a few days.

    Re: Orcs & Gobbo's, 5000 points and growing.

    Maybe a couple of close ups of your banners.

    As for the spiders, good job on the painting. I myself don't like very much the sculpt of the spider, especially the head. When I look at the picture of real spiders you provided, I can't help thinking that GW could have done a better job than what they actually did (compare the head of the spider in the 2nd link with the sculpt).
    However, the sculpt of shelob from the Lotr range is great (but I think they had to make it resemble the one in the movie). By the way, "she" would make a perfect giant spider for a goblin boss to ride.
    My fantasy log : A lot of green against a feeble mind
    Models painted 2011= 45 / 2012 = 62 / 2013 = 67 / 2014 = 48 / 2015 = 22

    Re: Orcs & Gobbo's, 5000 points and growing.

    Close ups of the banner?
    Here you go:



    The design is quite old, its one of the first things I made for this army (and one of the first things I did for warhammer at all) and represents my tribe which I named "Thunderfist clan" back then.

    Also, finished two more spider riders this weekend. 1 to go, and after this its on to the trolls:



    Something else I started working on, with the leftovers from the fortified mansion set:

    And in the back of the banners, is also my war totem.
    I posted it quite some time ago, but by now it has accumulated a few trophies (the 'loot' I gain after every major victory )

    Stone Trolls...
    Well, I got an older pic here (one Troll not finished and one missing), I'll get a better one in the weekend.

    Anyway, here's the old one, for now:

    Re: Orcs & Gobbo's, 5000 points and growing.

    Very simple actually. Graveyard earth, bleached bone, and a lot of drybrushing...

    ---EDIT---

    And nearly forgot about these!
    During the week, when I'm in my room in the town where I study, I usually do some work on stuff that is easy to do in large numbers.
    So currently, I'm working on snotlings, which are mainly green anyway.

    I've got these, which are a normal snotling converted a bit to fit on the model called "bastet, neferata's cat" and one of the snotlings that goes with the old pump wagon who will act as my shaman:



    And also some snotlings. The left one will be my fifth swarm base, the other are the crew of my 5th edition pump wagon (since the are 2 for 1 rare, I figured a second one would be appropriate...):

    Re: Orcs & Gobbo's, 5000 points and growing.

    Okay... so someone asked for pics of my trolls. So here's one, featuring all of them:



    Also cool news, I started a thread about some older stone troll models to find out what people know about them, and since then I succesfully managed to find one, unpainted, and bought it via ebay!
    This one:



    I hope to get it within a couple of weeks... And ofcourse I need to find the other two.

    And something else, I figured it would be nice to show some of my more unusual bosses. Here's from left to right: A big boss in chariot, Bogoff the Snotling, a big boss that usually is fielded with the iron gnasha's and a goblin boss on wolf.

    Stone trolls look good, I thought there were only six stone trolls in all, but now I know there is 7, I will have to track them down. These are a must have for my Night goblin army.

    Excellent work my man, especially the trolls. I too am starting a rather large O&G army, mostly NGs at this point. Great inspiration.
