They’re not wearing much and you wouldn’t want to meet them in a dark alley. Darrell looks at the Savage Orcs and discusses their big pointy weapons.
I am in love with these models! The first day I went out and bought 6 boxes. Extreme yes but thats how much I love them. I run them with a Warboss and 29 savages with additional hand weapons. They are just nasty in combat and just tear things apart! I now need GW to make some savage orc boss models and BSB.
Some serious mold lines for such a new kit! Nice to see savage orcs in plastic, but the price man, the price .
@russoliver Yeah I noticed on the reviewed set the mould lines were bad, yet on the couple of boxes I have they hardly needed claning up at all!
Wouldn’t 2 1handed weapons be the best make up for these?
I’ve been waiting for plastic Savage Orcs for…almost 20 years…
Finally they get released and not only is it a number of years since I gave up on Fantasy and 40k but at £18 for 10…nae danger.
Especially with, as russ pointed out, the mould lines being pretty bad. Now yes not every kit is going to suffer from it but having just one box, or even just one sprue like that means a huge increase in the cleanup job due to the sheer number of different parts ALL of which will have them.
Even at a discount from an indie retailer the price is way too much for me to accept.
If…IF…I find a box at a REALLY big discount, like 33% off, I’ll pick up a box to make a Mordheim warband and use in other non-GW small skirmish games.
These are great miniatures a IMHO are worth every penny. £1.80 per figure ain’t breaking the bank when your consider how much configurable detail has gone in. For the price of a small round of drinks you’ve got a formidable fighting unit that looks awesome – for life!
Not my favourite of the new O&G released but they are appealing. Just a bit overly ‘cartoon’ like in design for my tastes. I just think they could have been alot meaner! Not saying they dont look mean but they could have been done darker in tone and put in more menacing poses.
Still, a fun kit and i agree with needlesbeckett that they arent that badly priced. £1.80 per model aint great but it aint exactly that bad either. Plus, for 40k Space Ork players you got loads of options for customising models into Snake Bite clan warriors. A dream for people who love to build theme armies, like me!
While I accept that £1.80 a model isn’t the most expensive thing ever I can’t help but think that a month ago a plastic orc was around 90p.
When you start to look at a whole army though things start to spiral. £36 for really a minimum unit of 20, £72 for a horde of 40…that would be what four maybe five hundred points at most?
It just seems too much to me, but then for me GW have long had two feet firmly planted on that side of the line.
Savage orcs with additional hand weapons, savage orcs with bows … spider riders … savage orc boar boyz … river trolls … arachnarok ….
I am a happy woman
