So five years ago, when the previous O&G book was released, I started my Aporcalypse Redux project, to redo my old greenskin army and get it up to my current painting standard. Amongst other things, this involved a LOT of rebasing as the army was originally based with green flock (it was an OLD army). Fast forward a few years and I haven't really played my greenskins much in ages. So far I have only 7 battles with the new book - 5 losses and all wins have been teaching 8th edition to my brother, which don't really count.
I don't really like the new book.
But I have decided to have a go with the greenies, even if the Ogres (which I also play) are out in a matter of weeks. At least there will be very little to change with my Ogre army as I have very few unpainted minis for them and not a lot of ambition to buy new stuff. I might get a unit of the Catriders and a big nasty, but other than that I think my existing army is fine and anyway I'm not blown away by the new minis other than the Firebelly and that's in Failcast so I'm not getting it.
Stuff somewhere on my to-do list:
a Very Big Spider
another Very Big Spider
30 Savage Orcs (new plastics)
20 Squigs / Herders (mix of 5th / 6th)
Savage Orc Hero (AoW)
Savage Orc Shaman (Wurrzag)
Regular Orc Shaman (AoW)
Night Goblin on Bigsquig
Mangler conversion (this thing)
a handful of Black Orcs (6th ed metals)
Then there is a Doom Diver I want to convert. Three Pump Wagons need building / repainting. I want to convert my Borgut model to a Black Orc BSB on foot and I might want to get a Wolf Rider Hero.
I also have a good number of starter box minis from 6th and 7th ed, but I doubt I'll bother with them. And some older units to rebase.
Doesn't sound too bad.
I wish I liked the army book more.
