About the Project

What do you do when building a Kings of War Fantasy army? Start another one before you finish of course!! Our gaming group decided that with Elves, Men and Dwarves well represented it was probably an idea to have some 'Evil' armies in the mix... so having my own Waaagh of 40k Boyz I said I'd better do Orcs!

A sort-of rescue project. Also I believe allied contingents can unlock  other cool stuff and as Trolls feature in both Orc and Goblin lists..why not have some of these big fellas to bulk out the Army?

Aquired prebuilt from Mirfield Miniatures they were a lot of fun to paint, contrasts mainly with a little drybrushing and a very VERY nauseating yellow/green for the Vom-Troll!

Now I’m no power gamer or meta-chaser, I build for theme and fluff and RuleOfCool. Skulks as a unit seem to have been widely panned by people online… but I made a Troop of them anyway to sneak forwards at the start of the game and give a little bit of ranged action!

Having enjoyed the Oathmark Elves for my High Elf Army project I decided to try the Oathmark greenskin equivalent. ‘Goblins’ they may be but they have all the classic bruta hunched look of Tolkienesque Orcs and put me very much in mind of the look of the Boyz in Fighting Fantasy books (my own fantasy Gateway Drug from the 1980s). Again a lot of decent options in the basic box set, and a Regiment of basic Orc Ax seems pretty much a must-take unit. The ‘Skull Pole’ is magnetised as its a One-shot upgrade so the top can be removed/burned as the Boyz pile into the fray!

Da Boss!
