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.

 

 

More Orcs’n’Gobbos

Bringing the total minis painted this year up to 46, by basing and varnishing and giving the finishing touches to these seven minis.

  
It also means that I’ve done all the players for my team at EurOpen. One of these gobbos won’t be rostered though. 

Here are more pics of the most recent orcish addition, two blitzers and a lineorc:  

  
In an upcoming post I’ll present the full team and their background.
