    So, as with my dwarf army project that I’m currently working on I also have an orc and goblin army that I’m expanding upon.

    The orc and goblin models from the 4th edition Warhammer game have been lonely admired and I really love the way Kev Adams designs his greenskins. So since the early 2000’s I have been collecting and painting my green horde.

    As my collection is still stored in Australia atm I will be looking to paint additional units for my army so that when I have them transported over to Japan I will have a green skin horde worthy of the mighty Azagh the Slaghterer.

    And Azhag was one of the models that I had bought over ten years ago and had sitting in my lead pile that I wanted to have a crack at first. And just to point out that the Azagh model has been remodeled by Kev himself as the original model was a Marauder design and I really wanted Kev’s personal signature touch so that the model fits in perfectly with everything else I have currently. And to be honest, I neve liked the original sculpt.

    And I was really surprised to see some of my models featured in the community spotlight in the Weekender so thanks you for that guys 🙂

    Diego from Knightmare Games is the man responsible for allowing us to enjoy such awesome models for our armies. With the help of the extremely talented Kev Adams and to the many backers from the last successful Kickstarter campaign Greenskin Wars.

    If you want to see more miniatures like these orc boar boys above, then please visit his website: http://knightmareminiatures.com/

    The next series of orcs that I plan to paint are also from the last Kickstarter campaign and they feature some seriously sweet looking designs from the Goblin King Kev Adams himself.

    I also have made some videos that you can watch to see me review the orcs from the Kickstarter.

    And I have done a couple of painting tutorials for the skin and armor and will be doing more in the near future.

    This is one of the classic stone trolls that I’m working on atm and have another two of them on the work bench. I just wanted to paint the first one to check the colors and painting method. I really want  to try and capture the same look as the originals from back in the day.BFAF0384-E8B0-4380-8983-06489FFF6596

    The Troll looks like he should. Your paint job is much better than some of the one’s I remember for that mini … (a particularly hideous green and yellow one springs to mind)

    Thanks guys and I totally agree with missing the nostalgia of the old minis and games. That realization has really hit me over the past 6 months and now I am rebuilding some of my favorite elements of the hobby that I have missed all these years.

    You can expect to see a whole lot more ver the coming years mage so don’t worry about that mate 🙂

     

    And beardragon14, the trolls you are thinking of are the river trolls which are different then the one pictured above. That is a stone troll.

    Cheers

    If you are interested in models that have that ‘feel’ that aren’t GW I would strongly recommend you check out ‘Arcworlde’ by Warploque Miniatures.

    Thanks for the suggestion as they do some nice stuff.

    I have been eyeing off the Otherworld miniature line as they also do some superb miniatures that I want to incorporate into my Advanced Hero Quest adventures.

    I recently finished a small selection of orc troops for Knightmare Miniatures for their upcoming Kickstarter Green Skin Wars which will be up and running later this month of Orktober.

    These miniatures have such great style and individual personality which is something I have always admired about Kev Adam’s miniature design. He really captures the ork spirit of Grok and Mork in every miniature he sculpts.

    I did a quick tutorial on how to paint checkered patterns on ork armor etc.

    Hope this is helpful to painters out there. And please leave me some feedback if possible about my videos guys.

    Got Azhag finished in time for the end of Orktober but hadn’t uploaded the pics as yet. The pics aren’t the best and will be doing better ones when times allow.

    I also started a Project looking at making banners for these old minis using plasticard which I hope to get back to updating and doing a tutorial. Plasticard was used to make these banners for Azhag. It’s a really nice material that is durable and smooth to use and paint on.

    Azhag was given a facelift by the talented hands of the Goblin King himself Kev Adams as I didn’t like the original look to the shaman and I wanted him to fit in with the style of orcs that I have already which are all designed my Kev originally from various manufacturers.

    Better pics to come 🙂

     

    Ork on!
