Maybe my fifth Orc team, but I sold one earlier this year (the Savage orc themed team) to Skuld and parts of these miniatures are also doubling as Ogres.
So it’s ok. Plus, the upcoming tournament will be held in a castle.
The majority of minis are from wargames foundry/warmonger and sculpted by Kevin Adams. The gobbos are proper bloodbowl players from 2nd edition I believe, late eighties. Same sculptor though. The coach is different, and the troll as well as the wizard inducement are done by me.
The name is a pun, combining the swedish word for orc and for idea which make it sound like Orchidea. Hence, the player names are either relating to flowers or political thinkers. But they are also orcs in fancy dresses that I’m bringing to a castle.
Team creation was 1100k, with 6 normal skills for Orcs. I went with 4 Black orcs (block, block, guard, guard), 4 blitzers (sure hands), 1 lineman (wrestle), 3 goblins a troll and three re-rolls.
We’ll see how it goes…
Painted miniatures 15-23 for the year, let me present:
Slaanesh devotees, since the crab is sacred. Hail to the Serpent!
These chaps will ultimately be the backbone in my future Underworld team for BloodBowl, but first another assignment awaits. Since number six is sacred by Slaaneshi cultists, these first six chaps form one of the covens for this Bloodbowl team in particular, counting as snotlings statwise. The seventh goblin is the waterboy/bloodweiser babe of the team.

It´s an offspring from Wargames Foundry, they are sculpted by John Pickford.

These two are markers for turn and re-roll and possible if there are any touchdowns for the team. The models are Grenadier from their AD&D range “2012 Dwellers below“, a Beholder and an Otyugh. The Otyugh is being somewhat restrained by an orcling from Wargames Foundry (a Kevin Adams sculpt).
Otyugh and the Beholder is about as old as me, casted in the early eighties.
Next up, some chaotic ogres probably…
“Even though they are fairly new on the Blood Bowl scene, the team seems to have a quite realistic view on how they’ll do.
Maybe not the players themselves though, as they’ve all chosen more or less impressive names.”
A rennaisance themed Ogre Team? Yes indeed. A great joy to paint them, they are made by Kevin “Goblinmaster” Adams, the snots also. He worked for GW in the eighties and made the Snotling Pump Wagon for instance. Here´s more info on Kev.
The snots were procured from GW and the Ogres from Wargames Foundry, they´ve made a special site dedicated for these chaps called Warmonger. I really really want to buy these orcling scouts but sadly I havent found any practical use for them. Yet. It is not specifically designed for BloodBowl, I just saw them and realised that I needed them. And since I´m basically only playing BloodBowl at the moment, that´s what they needed to be.
The snots were found in a box in the basement. I have a great pile of Orcs & Goblins stuff from my WHFB days, these chaps used to be the crew of the Snotling Pump Wagon (an older version).
The team has been participating in the open season and the so called Silly Season in our local League. Theyve had a rough start to say the least, in nine games theyve lost no less than three ogres, thats equal to 420 gc. I´ve still won 4 games though, so somehow they´re pulling it off. The plan is to expand them to also double as an orc team, then the first four ogres will be black orcs.
They´ve also been to two tournaments, Närkebowl in Örebro and GothBowl in Gothenburg.
The passed out gobbo on the shroom is a reroll marker, the goblin in the evening gown with the meat cleaver is the apothecary.
Hope you like them, I surely do. If you want to follow them and see how they perform on the pitch, you can visit them here.
