Hey all im kinda new to WHQ. I bought the boxxed game but decided to replace all the monsters with thw newer GW monsters but i rly didnt look at the monster levels to start with so now i got like 25 orc melee 12 orc archer 6 goblin spearmen 3 centaur and 10 savage orcs painted but reading thrue the rpg book again i see that there onle seems to be savage orcs with bows... Got those too but unpainted. And the centaurs can they melee aswell? Having trouble understanding some of the rules. Anyway gues still a long way from playing a game anyway but thought be nice to try grasp some of the rules in advance

Savage orcs didn't figure in much to the original design. My revision (in the sig) only uses savage orcs without bows however with or without bows you can always proxy to get more or less use out of a set of minis. The centaurs in the main book are able to melee however they will stand back and use bows until the warriors move into melee range first.

I would start with the quick start book that comes with the main set. It does a great job of sticking to the essentials of the game and getting players use to the mechanics quickly and easily.

Yeah thats good advice got the nightgoblins with bows and the skaven basecoated still need to start with the snotling spiders and bats gonna use most the original models for them sinds the new ones arent that much more exciting and the new gw stuff is exspensive like hell.

May I come with a small suggestion? Put a small yellow dot in the orcs red eyes, make them look more "alive" ;). Keep up the good work, Started a couple of years ago myself. So still learning :D.

Looking good :), maybe try same there, a little "glimpse" in their eyes and fix their bases with som grass or stone or both. They looks really ferocious ;)
Keep up the good work there mate.

here my centaurs poorl;)y copied from butch

I'm flattered that you copied my conversions. They look good!

I love your minotaurs. I need to update mine - I have the ones from the original box and they look pretty puny in comparison.
