Orc Boys, Complete!

It seems like eons ago that I started this unit, but they are done! Painting 40 Boys is no laughing matter, let me tell you. But it was great fun painting up all of these orcs. While I generally still hate a few things about the kit, it is an improvement over the prior versions of the main orc foot troops. The biggest issue is that the models are generally too big for their bases and when you trying to squeeze 40 of them into a unit, you have to get a bit creative in how you place them on the bases, and even what arms you use.
Anyway, I am happy how these guys have turned out.  I know that Pappa JJ will be happy as well, or I'll stab him in the eye with all of these spears!

Here is the unit, assembled, and ready for paint.

And here they are, all covered with paint (minus that banner thing). 

Don't worry. I'm not done yet... there is a rather large stack of boys still in my basement!

  1. They look awesome man, thank you so much! I couldn't be happier with 'em. The mix of shades for the tunics turned out just as I had hoped. I wonder who will be next in line...

    Thanks, DrG! These orcs are going to be a lot of fun. :)

  2. I am glad that you like them. You better have fun with them! I'll bring out my Bretonnians some time to mix it up with the greenskins.
