I like how the star wars guys turned out! The cadian fits in pretty good as well.

Thanks! I've been pretty busy with work, so no real updates lately. :-(

Okay, I've finally gotten around to some Greenskins that have been in a box for a while. I think these guys will make a nice complement to my ogres.

The first eight are done. Time for the next eight! (I'll base them all when they are done.)

Really nice! I really like those starter kit guys. Did a recent ork army and resurrected 30 of the archers and 30 of the double choppas

I really like those starter models too for a number of reasons.
I converted about 50 of the archer models by cutting off the arrows, keeping the quiver, putting other baggage and equipment on them, doing arm swaps with torches and the random weapons, and made them look like a couple of units of looters. My inspiration was the two metal special models they released way back when - one carrying a pig and a torch, and another with a spear and torch.

The double choppa guys are great too, because 2/4 of them have more armour, which is better than the 1/4 from the plastic multi-pose set, which means they make good 'Big Unz' as they look like they are equipped better.

I've been stockpiling cheaply acquired orcs for WAAAGH! Konrad. Probably half or more of the common boyz are 6th edition starter set ones like those. I'm going to make 100 of them, in 4 units of 25 each, with dual choppas and bows. Archers will get an extra weapon stashed somewhere, while choppa boyz will get bows and quivers slung on the back. All kinds of extra bitz will replace heads and arms here and there to add variety. A few will even have various other looted ranged weapons than bows for the sake of variety.
The only good thing about 7th ed heads is that they look particularly inbred and superstitious which is perfect for Stirlanders

Oh, man, those are great! I've always wanted to get my hands on these orcs.

Back when I first started checking out all the coolness that Warhammer proved to be [during 6th ed], there was a GW Portugal site. As a brazilian, I've dove in head first there, and there was a translation of a battle report using the 6th ed starter box, with Empire and Orcs duking it out. I recall I was simply astonished by the small narrative and the figurines and the battle schematics, all in Portuguese [except for the unit names, which I think were in Spanish].

That was what swung me hard and deep into Warhammer Fantasy Battles.

Great work on the figures!

Yeah, I needed one and it was the only extra I had around. I might move him to a cavalry base later.

Thats ok. I was just thinking you had a unique idea there for something game-wise. Gives me ideas! Great job by the way. He looks good too!

Very nice!
I have a unit of these guys. One of my first few purchases way back when. The night goblins became my favourite faction for many years. Still maybe my favourite.

I hear that they might be getting an update soon for AoS!...

Here is the start of the Boar Chariot. This is the last little project before departing for the holidays.
