Shieldwolf are charging down from the mountains with their Valley Orcs who have got two new heroes nearing completion. Both their Shaman and Orc Hero are howling to the heavens it seems and due out in the next couple of months…
Big Chief ‘Shouts At Sky’
Here is the first of these new models. I love everything about it apart from the way that the model has been positioned. I would have preferred to have him able to look straight ahead as well as up towards the heavens although maybe there will be a way to tweak him.
Keeping with their cruel and twisted Orc look Shieldwolf have also filled his maw with rows of crooked sharp teeth. I might have to rough up those horns too actually; make it look like he actually uses them as a weapon in their own right.
On a more magical note we also have the Shaman from the same army. He is in a similar pose although I can forgive this one a little more because it looks like he is calling down elemental power from the skies to smash his foes…
I immediately want to include him in a huge diorama surrounded by howling Orcs then somehow (I wouldn’t even know where to start) sculpt lightning and elemental forces surging through his body to strike his foes around him. I think that would make for a pretty evocative piece!
Did you back Shieldwolf?
