Title: Orcyboy's hobby blog
Post by: orcyboy on January 12, 2018, 10:07:46 PM
Well seeing as photobucket zapped everything a while back I guess this is a good point to start a new.

I haven't been doing Empire in a while, its been all things goblinoid for the past few years but no doubt I'll swing back around to the Empire.

Mainly this will be a duplication of what I'm posting on my blog http://oldorcsneverdie.blogspot.com/ but there are some things that just don't fit there that might end up here.

Since October (Orctober) Ive been inspired by an ongoing challenge to paint 1000pts of Oldhammer miniatures in 6 months. In keeping with the initiative I've been aiming to paint 200pts of miniatures (3rd edition) a month. So far so good with the exception of December.

But lets step back and let me re-post my October painting:

http://oldorcsneverdie.blogspot.com/2017/10/my-orctober-showcase.html (http://oldorcsneverdie.blogspot.com/2017/10/my-orctober-showcase.html)

My Orctober showcase!
So it looks like this Orctober has been a banner month for me. I think I've painted more this one month then I have in that past two years.

So here's a quick review of what Ive finished this month.

First up an Orc hero. One of my favorite Orc heroes I might add. He's got everything you'd want from an 80's Orc- leering grin, gangly limbs and an awesome helmet.

Next up is an Orc champion. Originally intended to be the leader of my Orc crossbow unit but  usurped by another.

A mighty unit of 28 Orc Crossbows.  Hopefully I'll have more pictures and an actual story to go with them coming up next month or so.

I ended up using Mr. pointy finger as their leader. I figured crossbows are a bit complicated for Orcs and they'd need a disciplinarian with a whip to keep them on task. But honestly this is one of my least favorite Orc models, he's a bit static and the modern looking books and big shoulder pads look a bit too 40k, he may end up being replaced at some point.

One of the odd ball models in the unit. I believe he's from Citadel Ad&D line.

A quick pre-slotta Orc. Didn't turn out too great, the skin tone makes him look frog-ish. One of the crossbow orcs was pulled from the pre-slotta The Ol' Rusty Axe Gang so I need to paint up a replacement.

 Trolls!

The plan was to get three Trolls painted up before the end of November in an effort to keep up with painting 200 points of Oldhammer a month.

Well I buckled down and painted eleven Trolls! Plus tidied up another five or so. That makes for a nifty unit of 16 Trolls plus a hanger on.

So lets take a look.


The big bad Troll gang... ere we go ere we gooo...

First are the three oldest fellas. 1984 models I believe and quite nice. The Squidward looking guy in the middle came out the best. I was surprised by the little details on these guys from mushrooms growing on the ones head to all the little skulls and charms.

A C20 marsh troll, marauder troll, C20 Hill troll and another Marauder troll. I painted the one purple on a whim and he came out surprisingly well.

Four more marauder trolls. I believe that makes for a complete collection of marauder trolls.  These are old paint jobs. Originally painted by my brother in the early 90's.  I acquired them and dry-brushed them in the early 2000's and just updated their bases. A bit rough looking but serviceable.

The same marsh troll as seen above plus another hill troll. I actually have four more hills trolls on the back burner for now, two of the same models in the unit is enough.

A couple of D&D style trolls.  The one on the left is Ral Partha AD&D 1988 line and the other is a TSR Troll from 1984.  I'm not sure what the deal is with D&D trolls, they have kind of a swamp thing/vegetable vibe. I guess they're just your garden variety trolls...  Although the Ral Partha one is a beautifully crafted sculpt I don't care for him much. I do however like the TSR troll (kind of an Andre the Giant look) and he fits it fine for now with the rest of my trolls.

And last we have their leader. I nice battle troll from Knightmare games. I picked him up through the Greenskin Wars kickstarter.  He's a good blend of Oldhammer and Middlehammer and fits in perfectly imo.
So that's it for November.  I managed to paint up 11 new trolls at 65pts each totaling out to 715 pts. 500+ points over my goal.  Plus I fixed up half a dozen old paint jobs putting together a unit of 16 trolls at 1040 points.  I doubt I'll ever field that many trolls at once but who knows.

Since I was all about trolls this month I also re-uploaded my troll tapes to youtube. (I lost the creds to my old youtube account and had to create a new one). I also added another one I forgot last time. Its even got a nice holiday jingle just in time for the season:

Since October (Orctober) Ive been inspired by an ongoing challenge to paint 1000pts of Oldhammer miniatures in 6 months. In keeping with the initiative I've been aiming to paint 200pts of miniatures (3rd edition) a month. So far so good with the exception of December.


That challenge looked like a lot of fun, and I would have joined in except all of my projects are WIP and they wanted un-started armies, and I've got an amplified version of Gamer Attention Deficit Disorder, and figured I probably would have gotten distracted into a different project after just a few months.  :icon_lol:


First up an Orc hero. One of my favorite Orc heroes I might add. He's got everything you'd want from an 80's Orc- leering grin, gangly limbs and an awesome helmet.

Those old gangly orcs are awesome. I wish they were easier to come by, or there were some alternatives in that style available now. I'd like to put together a small warband/mercenaries. But everything seems to be in the more muscular, blocky style.


That is a pile of old trolls! Very cool.  :eusa_clap:

Trolls are awesome creatures. Always had my unit of stone trolls in every army and rendition. It makes me think, I have 3 from some other supplier and a regular troll from a starter army I think. Iím a bit like 023 ( GADD not skill 😸) in catching a whim and following it rather than sticking to my guns.

so old...so hammerish. Nice thread! Gangliness really was the style of the day on orcs and trolls. The other thing I noticed is that the weird ape-style 'arms that reach to the knees' that I don't like about modern GW orcs have been around forever.

Yep, would be nice if somebody still made something similar. About the closest I can find are the Orcs from Old Glory's Ghost line and even those are fairly dated.

Some artillery finished.

So I didn't quite finish these next guys in December I was only about 80% done until last weekend when I finally finished them.

I have two old Notlob's bolt throwers and two of the newer style (relatively speaking) Orc "Spear Chukkas".
http://www.solegends.com/citrr/1rr14notlobs/index.htm (http://www.solegends.com/citrr/1rr14notlobs/index.htm)

The two older style bolt throwers. One I had painted a little while back but I updated it with bow string.
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dFLuE57Hj2c/WlxXIdPWRFI/AAAAAAAAFnY/Ui7iib0wWsEGV0vL_cFhYPvaCNzoI1TkwCKgBGAs/s1600/Boltthrower2.jpg)

The newer style bolt throwers (Spear Chukkas).
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-wHsfkOZi-B0/WlxXR2slskI/AAAAAAAAFnc/bHyPc1zGp1cbczUPJYNX7mxCveLOMpiZQCKgBGAs/s1600/Boltthrower3.jpg)

The Orc in the middle is the acting engineer/boss. As far as I can tell Citadel made at least two variations of this Notlob model, one with an all chain mail coat and this one with a scale mail vest.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-VEJyNrm0xD0/WlxXpyT0yAI/AAAAAAAAFno/2lPA037Msl4DQVVwEL74oQd21FMDJRdTgCKgBGAs/s1600/bolthrowercommand.jpg)


So that's about 186 point and if we call the Boss a 5th level hero that should put me over the 200pt mark.

Not sure what I'll be doing for January. We're already a couple weeks into it and things are busy, might need to call this month a wash.

But I'm looking at either finishing my Orc villagers or working on another proper unit of Orc boyz.  I'm leaning towards the villagers as they're unique and fun but I don't think they'll total out to 200 pts.

Finished my villagers a couple weeks ago and finally took some pics.

If ever I get around to using them in a battle I'd probably draw on the old levies rules from 3rd edition or maybe subject to stupidity (drunk and disorderly).

10 Orcs boyz and couple more trolls completed.

I think I finally got my Orc painting mojo back. The crossbow Orcs I over blended their greens, the villagers I got bored and relied too much on dry brushing but these guys came out just right sticking with bolder contrasts.

(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-p1buEy0Sb78/Wp40zu03-BI/AAAAAAAAGIw/YS_iAtqOd0kkYT4cI6AIwKjisreuwa02wCKgBGAs/s1600/Orc%2Btroops%2Bone.jpg)

I also feel the need to re-iterate my love for these old models.  A mix of Kevin Adams and the Perry twins with one White Hand LOTR Orc that I'm not sure of the designer probably one of the Perry's or Morrison's.

and last a couple more Trolls. Both are from Heartbreaker. The one on the right is from their Magic the Gathering line, the other is from their later Tim Prow line I think but mine I picked up with the recent Kev Adams/Tim Prow kickstarter run by Impact! Miniatures and is cast in a plastic/resin similar to fine cast.

More Orcs in the pipeline.

Not sure what happened to the pics, they are working for me now again at least for the moment. The first villagers pic I found the image tags had inserted width and height metrics which I had not applied. I removed those and replaced the pic link which may also have changed by google and with that all the other pics started magically working including the March post, so I dont know whats up.

Does anybody have any recommendations on hosting and posting pics these days now that photobucket is dead? I really don't trust google photos and I'm not really sharing the photos the way they recommend (I pull the image url out of the "View image info" rightclick option).

 So ten more Orc boyz are done as I crawl towards what I hope to be a large unit of 30 Orcs. 20 down 10 to go.

Some more examples of Kev Adams excellent 80's work.
Though I'm not sure about the one second from the right as a Kevin design. I was a little unimpressed with him at first, he's smallish and sort of man-ish but he painted up well and I kind of like him now. The guy on the far right is one of my favorite designs. Some of you might recognize Bruglodd in there, he wont be part of the greater unit but he was in reaching distance when I was painting so he got the treatment.  I'm thinking the banner depicts "Mork da' Kunnin" or maybe its Gork I don't know.

And the next five. Nice models in general although the one on the far right has a face that is a bit miscast with what might be his left eye resting on his cheek.

The completionist in me made me pick up these two spear chukkas. They are similar to the Notlob bolt throwers I previously shared except they are festooned with all sorts of furniture. I believe these were the Dwarf bolt throwers from the same period. Unfortunately I could only dig up enough crew for one of them at least for now.

 Last 10 Orcs finished.

Ten new recruits have wondered down the valley to join the infamous Mork's Mutilatorz gang.

Finished these guys last week and finally got them photo'd up. A little rushed but they still came out pretty good. The fella with the mohawk helmet is one of my favorites.
(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-yV5Yy1XG_AM/WsQR866un4I/AAAAAAAAG24/Yyxw4oR30xkGKqEcN72p8HRHIMqzc3X7QCKgBGAs/s1600/more%2Borcs%2B3%2Bpt1.jpg)

So that makes for a nice fat unit of thirty Orcs and no duplicates! Looks like the Mutilatorz gang is all set for a season of raiding a pillaging the local farmsteads.

 Goblin slingers
Well things got a bit bust around here and these guys took a bit longer to get finished then I had expected, but better late then never.

While rummaging through my considerable number of un-painted gobbos a few months ago I found I had 8 slingers in the mix and that got me thinking. Add a command and we're at 11 and I just need 9 more to make a proper unit. After a few conversions and a couple oddballs tossed in I've got myself a proper unit of 20 Gobbo slingers.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mtyDTpKL_wg/WxCstLtC-KI/AAAAAAAAHJs/iF2z4DlGDO0sZL_g0dvN3_WRAVWFrNu6wCKgBGAs/s1600/goblinslingersunit1.jpg)

As far as I can tell there were only three slingers released in the main Goblin line or at least thats all I can find in the 1988 catalog. The one in the middle and the right must be fairly common as I have multiples of them. I also have to admit I've always had a soft spot for the one in the middle ever since I spotted him in the Heroes for Wargames book years ago.
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-AdgWhH6OexY/WxCtxz9uLsI/AAAAAAAAHJ4/J_zRSOwa8CgehfyjvNBs4SnxQKEfqIrmgCKgBGAs/s1600/goblinslingersunit2.jpg)

A few of the oddballs. The fella on the left is a 40k grot I'll probably replace if I come across something more suitable. The gob in the middle is a pre-slotta goblin with sling and fits in fine.  The grinning fella on the right, well I suspect he has a sling he just got a little confused when the boss told him to put his rocks in it (or maybe he knows exactly what he's doing idk).
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-tWtcFRu_BTs/WxCwdk_EeCI/AAAAAAAAHKE/X7_UO2g4uQkOcwFMJtRJMxBt0dcD1bjXgCKgBGAs/s1600/goblinlingersunit3.jpg)

A few minor conversions. I must have a dozen of the Marauder MM30 goblin with club (middle) and converted a handful for this project.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9Y7dsxnz-oA/WxCxg641oII/AAAAAAAAHKQ/mq4NoAYI2nEtlhmZ0gPQFfT2Stk-1PKywCKgBGAs/s1600/goblinslingersunit3.jpg)

The boss is one of my favorites from the Kevin Adams line of gobbos. A simple sculpt but the mutton chops and mustache lends him a natural air of authority (the spiked club helps too).

 I also managed to paint up a Goblin shaman from the old Heartbreaker line I believe.

Hello again,


Finished up this here regiment of Heartbreaker goblins and despite the numbers and lack of diversity I quite enjoyed them.  I believe these are all Kevin Adams sculpts and for the most part quite nice if a bit heavily armored for goblins.

Normally when painting large units containing mostly the same miniatures I try and vary the color of skin tones, armor and clothes etc but for these guys I just painted them pretty much all in uniform and glad I did.  I actually found it relaxing plugging away at these guys without having to put much forethought into each of them. The bases were a slog to paint though.

42 nasty well armed and armored goblins.
(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-PQuNoY6qy7I/W0WP5lMGh3I/AAAAAAAAHiY/M4YlPNCYmfY8_zybYyPRH8U8S7dP_HOmQCKgBGAs/s1600/HBGoblins1.jpg)

(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-I2rzBQp8ZhE/W0WQOkE6A2I/AAAAAAAAHig/tu0nK4fSJm40dodmG94ry9amvXiBPmeqwCKgBGAs/s1600/HBgoblins2.jpg)

The bulk of the regiment is made up these two fellas. Very difficult to rank up, unfortunately I had to split the unit pretty much down the middle to get them to rank up.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CVRGfhuH_6Q/W0WQwPqmZoI/AAAAAAAAHio/0lXNudeRlf0bX7hnjJfztdaNkihSql0rACKgBGAs/s1600/HBgoblintroops2.jpg)

All of these guys are of course metal, with the exception of the one below on the left. I got him with Impact Miniatures recent kickstarter re-producing most of the old Heartbreaker models in resin or rather some kind of plastic/resin.  He's not actually an exact copy of the original as he has armored boots and a flame etched onto his blade.

I do have about a dozen gobbos made up of these guys to help break up some of that tedious uniformity.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-e7oRVgmW1xc/W0WSVNl1ZsI/AAAAAAAAHi4/x8KtIYwtd-oa5Ly2LMZ2E5xYv0ap9aULwCKgBGAs/s1600/HBgoblintroops1.jpg)


The command. A little bit of a skull fetish..
(https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JFD65yjy_PI/W0WS6IOCowI/AAAAAAAAHjE/9UKqo8latoUz_XE3UeUi_dzPcYPSAV-XACKgBGAs/s1600/HBgoblinscommand.jpg)

So onto the next project.
I think I'll be working on sorting out my wolf riders. I believe I now have enough metal wolves to get things moving along. The only thing I hate more than the old plastic wolves is the old plastic boars. But anyhow I should now have enough metal wolves to swap out my 90's wolf riders with proper mounts.

Yeah, they're still around. Impact Miniatures sells them in sets caste in resin and Ral Partha Europe still has them available in metal.  They fit in fine with the Harliquin/Black Tree Design Goblins. Though I swear Black Tree Design had a much larger selection of Goblins 8-10 years ago but their catalog has shrunk over the years.

I finished up my Goblin rocket team or rather "skyrocket" as its refereed to in 3rd edition. Nice little model, easy to paint up which provided a quick little interlude while I sort out and clean up all my wolf riders.


I'm a little at odds with a couple of the goblins, while I like the miniatures in general Im not too keen on the binoculars and goggles a little too WoW for me.

Finally got these guys done. 18 Goblin wolf riders.

These guys for now will be the core of my Goblin cavalry. Kitted out with light armor, spears and shields they are the closest thing my Goblins have to heavy cavalry.

I still have a couple more units of wolf riders to complete but for now they'll have to wait until after Orctober.


The charge of the Doom Dogs!

I got a few Lancer Miniature Orcs finished before the end of Orctober. I'll get the rest finished next month hopefully... and with better pictures.

I quite like these guys. They are big beefy Orcs probably closer in style to what GW was putting out with their plastic kits in the late 90's and aughts but with a little less exaggeration. The sculpting is good, not knock your socks off good but detailed and interesting enough to give them a lot of charm. Not to mention they are affordable imo and they are in proper METAL!

I don't really have a recipe.  I use mostly craft store paints and if I leave my painting desk for more then a day or two I can never remember what paints I used last so my " recipe" changes with each sitting. But here's a pic of the paints of the greens I used off on for these last orcs:

Lancer Miniatures Orcs unit completed
I finished up these guys a few weeks ago and finally got some photos of the them.

There's 27 of them. Not sure why I didn't just round up to 30 when I bought them but oh well. Maybe if Lancer Miniatures ever adds anything else to their catalog of interest I'll pick up three more.

So here they are 27 brutish meat headed Orcs.

Hi folks,

A couple weeks ago the Mad Viking (Zak) sent me a Sister of Sigmar.  Thanks Zak!

So I painting her.  And that was all the inspiration I needed to finish painting off the few other Sisters Ive had kicking about.

The Bertha Bestraufrung I've had painted for a while and she's usually used as a warrior priestess in my Stirland army. I painted them in green rather then the tradition red to help match in with my Stirland army (Daughters of Freya?).

Post by: orcyboy on January 31, 2019, 06:48:48 AM
Rangers
The counts rangers are a hardy bunch of men (and women), skilled woodsmen and expert trackers. They patrol the woods and mountain passes, forming the first line of defense against the incursions greenskins.

The group is made up of all my odds and ends carrying bows or hunting crossbows.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-lX4mNnegtvU/XFKWUaWyH0I/AAAAAAAAJck/P0Fd1mTtKZQHL_pAocFK7hGeG9G1HFwWQCKgBGAs/s1600/hRangers.jpg)

I rounded off the unit with some of the new Oathmark humans. A nice kit of generic fighters and they make pretty good looking ranger types in my opinion
(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-cxpBiSOHHjg/XFKWYSB9swI/AAAAAAAAJco/YTjPqKCQKVMVfDo0h4TWSGa7nqdPKePJwCKgBGAs/s1600/hrangers2Oathmark.jpg)

Some of my favorites here. From the left we have an Asgard/Viking Forge (Sternbow), a Citadel AD&D Ranger, Citadel Boromir (the new line) and another Citadel AD&D ranger.
(https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-ZHGGTguQEX8/XFKWcLbm8SI/AAAAAAAAJcs/DYK6r-EqfXQB1CQadiR0gtrtUqtE5IYeACKgBGAs/s1600/hRangers3.jpg)

More favorites. All three are Citadel, the Indian (I call him chief Falling Rocks) and the mountain man on the right are two of my favorite Citadel pieces and make perfect rangers.
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-NeIVzi5NYk8/XFKWfcmxByI/AAAAAAAAJcw/XIasUz9SxzQ7tnPOEMzN0USkw5bdnBZywCKgBGAs/s1600/hRangers4.jpg)

 I believe the chap on the left is from Grenadier, the dwarfess is a Reaper bones (Dwarf or just a full figured lass?) and the lad on the right is an old Tom Meier/Ral Partha elf.
(https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-7xLZc2emnDM/XFKWiCERZzI/AAAAAAAAJc0/IPwvXfAl5Ig4gYmC5lvVYVg17-eJ1uG9gCKgBGAs/s1600/hRangers5.jpg)

I believe these are Ral Partha, two of which are from their old Dragonlance line. I'm not sure who makes the Robinhood looking fellow.

I also picked up a new scenery piece from a Hobby Lobby discount bin. Its one of those garden fairy decoration pieces but I think it fits in fine as a fantasy tree house and scales well enough.
