Feral Goblins by Kevin Adams

More gobbo goodness!

Part of my gitmob grots horde, led by Moonshineguzzler. When the points allow it he will probably be fielded as a shaman but as of now he’s a gitmob boss.

They are sculpted by Kevin Adams and bought via Knightmare Miniatures (a Spanish company).

Orctober – Ironjawz, Gorkamorka Nobz and Giant Black Orcs

Stompahs boyz, lead by two MM27 Giant Black Orcs. Bulk of the Ironjawz are Gorkamorka Nobz bodies with Ironjawz heads. Have 15 more that needs rebasing and touching up. Quite look forward to it, they will be a formidable force.

 

 

The black orcs themselves.

 

Since these are the last hours of Orctober normal posting intervall will resume.

There might be some more greenskins around the corner, but there will also be other stuff. In less than four weeks Necromunda will hit the shelves, this is great news indeed. From what I’ve gathered from the game play videos so far, they’ve done a great job.

 

Orctober – Gore gruntas

My Gore-gruntas, two beasts from Reaper Miniatures and an old wyvern. The riders are an orc boar rider standard bearer, a savage orc shaman and a savage orc standard bearer. The savage orcs have had their faces greenstuffed, the one on the right I did 20 years ago.

  

Facelifts!

 

Really like how they turned out.

Orctober – Ka’Qtuzarr the Red Rider

My general, an orc shaman. Used to ride a wyvern, now a two-headed sabretoothed tiger. (Counting as a war boar). It was released as a Marauder miniature, MB08 Orc War wyvern. Now riding on Ogor Frost sabre tiger.


Yep, thats who.

 
Here he is in Prisma as well.

A couple more posts inbound until end of october, after that there will be a strong focus on Necromunda for quite some time. Hope that´s ok.

Started on what will probably be a Scavvy king yesterday, here’s a little preview on that one.

Orctober: On the desk

Doing a 1000 pts Destruction force for an Age of Sigmar tournament this weekend.

My original plan was to do about 82 miniatures but then the new Generals Handbook came.

New plan will be an orc shaman as general, 40 grots and 3 ogors as battleline. To that i will have 3 trolls, 3 Gore gruntas and a unit of ardboyz. Plus a gobbo big boss. That makes it 61 models instead. Thats fine.


Plan is to present the units properly in individual posts but also put some of them up here already.
This is my cavalry, the general plus Gore gruntas.


Next are the Sourbreath Troggoths, not the sharpest knives in the toolshed. I call them the Stinktank. The’ve been rebased, touched up and varnished since I played with them last time.


Here is also some ogres, Mooch’s Bunch, since they are lead by the Ogre Captain Mooch. The model is Hrothyogg, the C23 ogre Captain, sculpted by Jes Goodwin. Probably my favourite ogre model. The other two are from Reaper Miniatures, part of the Bones3 kickstarter I received earlier this year.


Will do proper army pics this weekend.

N11 Giant Black Orcs

First 31 down, 51 to go.


Feels really good about this.

These miniatures are sculpted by Nick Lund, some of them are pre-slotta but some of them have slotta tabs. They’re about as old as me some of them. Some of them are from regiment of renown’s Eeza Ugezod’s Mother Crushers, some are labelled Giant Black Orcs. They are a bit wonky and maybe not as giant by comparison to other greenskins nowadays, I do like all of them a lot.

Next up are more gobbos but soon I’ll move onto bigger pieces.

82 miniatures in 6 weeks challenge

Some friends are arranging a small Age of Sigmar tournament as an incentive for getting more things painted up. Tournaments are also a real cost efficient way to get some table top time. During a day you can manage quite a few games, which is always a good thing. With the new generals handbook coming to AoS I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get on board.
Since I already hade a sizeable Orcs & Goblin army so i thought that shouldnt be a problem. Thing is that it all needed rebasing because of the exploding world phenomenon. Going through the pile looking for suitable miniatures to represent my general I went for an older orc shaman, one I hadn´t painted yet.
The miniature in question was the orc shaman riding a war wyvern from Marauder miniatures range. But instead he´ll be mounted on a sabretooth tiger (with an additional head added), counting as a war boar which is a legitimate option on the orc great shaman warscroll.

I also realised that there were quite a substantial amount of unpainted lead in the vault. So instead of just rebasing I entertained the idea of painting instead of rebasing and in doing so making my greenskin collection even greater. But most important greener.
So all in all there´s about 82 miniatures to do before the tournament which is only 6 weeks away. Will it suffice? Hope so, if time runs out I might just rebase some of the already painted stuff but that´s plan B.

First out are a bunch of black orcs scuplted by Nick Lund. The miniatures are from Grenadier, Chronicle N11 and the Citadel regiments of renown (Eeza Ugezod´s mother crushers RR18) series.
They will be accompanied by Jes Goodwins Despoiling hobgoblins of the Darkland (RR 15) and some newly sculpted Feral Goblins by Kevin Adams from Knightmare Miniatures. Some c36 Hobgoblins ill also be there.
All of these will form a 60 heads strong horde of Gitmob Grots for the purpose of the game.

This is how far I´ve come now:


It will be 1000 points in total, and apart from the general and the grots there will be trolls/troggoths, orcs/orruks, ogres/ogors, a boar chariot and some gore-gruntas (a sort of orc boar boyz). It will be some sort of grand alliance of Destruction, and it will be awesome.
