[WM] Pugwash's mighty Orc Waaagh
« on: November 22, 2020, 08:24:48 AM »
I've managed to finish my Orc Army - purchased a decade ago, painting began during lockdown in March and since then the Orcs have been a whole lot of fun to paint and play.  The sculpts are great, details amazing and the army is a chaotic mess, that can both take and deliver a punch, perfectly capturing the essence of the genre.  Hoping to get the whole army onto the table for a demo game in August 2021.

Behold the mighty Waagh of Gorefang Sixpeaks – Tyrant of the North:










Orc Warriors


Goblins


Black Orcs


Trolls, Ogres & Giants


Boar Riders


Wolf Riders


Wolf Chariots


Rock Lobbers

What a beautiful army! I've managed to paint about 1300 points of Orcs and Goblins in 18 months, and you've painted three times that in a third of the time.

You can't help but be inspired. Maybe I should fish some Orcs out of storage...

Thank you all for the kind words! 
Amazing work. Looks great. What's next?!

Next up are the Dark Elves.  We're playing a campaign soon so I need to get them ready for another player - fortunately I already did the spearmen and Cold ones back in 2009 or so, but unfortunately I've decided to 'refresh' the scheme a little.  Either way it shouldn't be such a big undertaking and I'm hoping to get a small force table ready for our regular game next month.

Great spread. The orc sculpts are a really characterful set and this is an excellent showcase.
