Orcseses, a moosotaur, a talisman troll and lessons learnt from EuroBowl

A couple of more sort of greenskins done for mostly my team Vilda OrchIdéer.
All minis are from Wargames Foundry, from left a lineman, turn counter, a chef, fan factor and finally a possible apo. Either way, a rather impressive sideline figure that one.


Next is the mini I got from participating in the EurOpen at EuroBowl. A moosotaur, sculpted by the massively talented Gimpen/Kalle. (He´s also have done the superpunch troll, some amazing ogres, a beautiful goblin team and I do really hope that he casts up his dwarves.)

He isn´t painted yet, but will probably eventually join my future chaos or chaos pact team.

I had so much fun that weekend, it was the second time that I brought Orcs to a tournament. Finished 52nd out of 90 coaches with 2-2-2 record. But I´m quite satisfied nonetheless, at least two of the games were rather close and I didn´t make too many obvius mistakes. Next time I´ll probably put the two guard on the blitzers and frenzy on the last blitzer instead of block on one of the black orcs. If I go with orcs that is, it might be a while though. I really need to figure out how to beat Dark Elves though, as of today I haven´t been able to do that yet. I might have to try them out myself perhaps but I fear that I won´t be so succesful since I really like the assassins and as I understand that they aren´t that good. But they´re supposed to be bad, right?

Next up is the talisman troll, from 1994. (TL 5) His company from the blister is a ghoul, which will probably join my Undead team as the fourth ghoul. This troll is quite small, but a perfect fan factor or something similar. Could be score counter also.

 

Tomorrow the new edition of the game will be published, BB 2016. I´m really looking forward to it. The release of DeathZone (the first supplement) has a strong Elven focus. I´m dabbling with some dark elves but haven´t really found the exact colors for them yet.
The planning for the minis and the background is more or less diecided upon though.

Also there´s been some collecting of odds and bits in order to outline a High Elf/Pro Elf (Elven Union now) team. I think they will turn out nice, but they are somewhat more down the assembly line. Before that is the human team from the box I believe.

    1. Thanks IRO!
      Yeah, really looking forward to painting the moose.
      I was a bit hesitent at first, but as soon as you’ve decided to broaden the orcish palette beyond green it creates a great diversity.
