Squk's Waagh!!

Post by prairiehawk » Mon Mar 21, 2011 12:20 am

So I just recently started an orc horde after I came to a standstill on my SM army. Overall I find the orcs more fun to paint, build, and play. Out of three games I've played I got second in a three wa, won one, and lost one.

Heres my army so far:

Grimgor Ironhide - assembled
goblin boss on giant spider
Savage orc shaman on boar - assembled
58 boys - 42 assembled, 6 primed, 6 painted
20 night goblins - assembled
10 spider riders assembled
10 OOP savage orc boys - need stripped and repaired
6 savage orc boar boys(1 oop) - assembled
10 black orcs - assembled
1 boar chariot - assembled
3 river trolls- assembled
1 giant - assembled


Finished boys

Models look nice, one question and one small criticism though

1: Where're the heads!?
1: Checkers are pretty good, but, they become pretty funky near the beginning and end of the blade

your units are waaaay too small
I fall into a dark hole
And I can't come out
Do you know if Merlin did exist
Or Frodo wore the ring
Did Corum kill the gods
Or where's the wonderland
Which young Alice had seen
Or was it just a dream
I knew the answers
Now they're lost for me

in 8th edition for 25mm base models u looking at about 25-30 model minimum in a unit and that also depends on thei points and battlefild role.for orcs id say 30-40 boyz is a good size considering orcs are tough,strong and cheap in points, Blorcs u definitly want 30

yes 20 is the smallest you want you units. but you really don't want blorcs in low points games because of their points cost

Here is my first ever gobo spider I have painted.

Image
Image

I really like how the blue turned out. I also think the spines contrast very well.Next time, I think Im going to try asofter more gradual drybrush before the washes. I used both the GW blue and green washes. The base coat was GW regal blue brushed with Vallejo magic blue. Washed with blue then green.


here is a couple of photos of my chariot based. Sort of a before and after

Image

here is the base that I painted a layer of pva glue and sand, followed by a second layer of pva. I tried to leave sort of naked spots where it was just pva, this becomes important later.

I then painted it with scorched brown,then brushed it with dark flesh tone.

I then sprayed the base with dullcoat, then poured some vallejo water effects on the base. I brushed it around, and sort of pooled it in the naked spots i created before.

I then sprinkled some fine sand into the wet effects, as well as some GW snow.

I then painted white spots where i wanted snow, and glued snow on, and finally finished with some army painter highland tuft. Over all I am super pumped for the final result. I think it turned out awesome. It looks like the sort of early spring late winter messy slush i was looking for.

heres the final

Lemme know what you think?
