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.

Orctober pt 3 – Bloodbowl Orc Team – Vilda OrchIdéer 

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…
