Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 4

The nice thing about building up a warband is that you have the opportunity to try something new every now and then. With the fourth member of the Redfists I implemented something that I always wanted to try out: I painted Vorlug in a half-sided pattern. Depending on which side you look at the model […]

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 3

The younger plastic Ardboys have the tendency to have very large surfaces of armor, which can lead to the Space Marine effect. The Space Marine effect? This is the kind of boredom you get when you paint the same color on large areas for a long time. Although the new Ardboys also have many smaller […]

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 2

Each Ardboy has its own name (even on the underside of the base) and individual character, but all have the same style of paint scheme. I often paint according to certain "recipes", in order to not forget how I did it and to get a homogenous look. With ordinary orcs I wouldn't mind, but Ardboys […]

Lords of WarCry – Da Redfists, Part 1

The WarCry hypetrain is in full throttle in the vastness of the internet and we also heard the call to arms in the Chaosbunker. Personally I'm going to work on parts of an old project and continue with it, because I have a lot of unpainted minis lying around at home for Age of Sigmar, […]

Painting tricks for optical effects

In the last article I talked about how my painterly aspirations first developed in such a way that I wanted to reach a pro level. However, this was rather the beginning of my journey as a hobbyist and my preference has shifted a lot in the meantime. One thought was pivotal at that point: How […]

Warhammer 40,000 – Rukkatrukk Squigbuggy

Let's finish the industrial vehicle theme with a Buggy, the Rukkatruck Squigbuggy, that will be de-orcified within this building review. The Squigbuggy was introduced along with a couple of other new orc vehicles on the Speed Freeks release. The Squigbuggy isn't the first Ork vehicle that I convert, I did some work on the Battlewaggon […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Wanderleagues

As the third lineplayer paintwise doesn't offer anything new compared to the other two, I'll talk a bit about my Wanderleague system today, but more about that in a moment. I've tried a little something on Gorhuk the Smelly. On the one hand, I'm just starting to love the color scheme of keeping the clothes […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Old Blood

The team's four Blitzers all have an individual history and when I looked through the old background snippets some time ago, I just realized how much character the most offensive part of the team had. Borag Oldblood is the team's oldest player and by the way, the only remaining player of the original squad, long […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: From fan to player

In the background of the Maulers story, I mentioned that there was a tryout and those of you who have followed the Journey of the Maulers so far, will notice that the following two players are Rikoth and Rotfang. I always like to give the minis a small characterization which is kept open enough to […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: The proper look

Chainsaws not only have a long-standing tradition at Blood Bowl, they are also a great excuse some conversions a try. Since I always wanted to field Ugroth Bolgrot once, but never liked the classic model, I built my own version. On the one hand, that had the advantage that I could use it, if I […]

BLOOD BOWL – Journey of the Maulers: Tryouts

Match reports are always a double-edged sword in Blood Bowl. They are wonderfully entertaining, but the documentation and smoothing can cost a normal worker like me a whole week of free evenings. For this reason I`ll have only a small summary this time, but full reports will surely come at some time in the future. […]

Journey of the Maulers: Team Logos

In my article, Blood Bowl: Solo Campaigns, I've talked about how the backstory of a team contributes significantly to the immersion in a solo campaign and that I'm actually following that method in the Journey of the Maulers series. For the fans I already did this, as each of them got a few lines of […]

Battle Report – Kings of War Vanguard – Northern Alliance vs. Orcs!

The Orcs have returned to the north, this time hunting for Dragon Eggs. If raised by evil forces these beasts can destroy whole cities, so it is up to Rockjaw and his group to stop them before they make off with such deadly cargo!

[EN/PL] The Orcs continued! / O orkach ciąg dalszy! (Warmonger Miniatures Orc #2)

Good morning!Today is the weekend and I am inviting for a new entry on DwarfCrypt! It will be green and in the climate of my favorite oldhammer (and middlehammer, for which my greatest expansion into Warhammer was).       Recently, my long-awaited package from Warmonger Miniatures, in which there were a few orcs, to my emerging band of green brutes. And in this enthusiasm I painted one of them. I added excellent shields from Rotten Factory to the original model (and the previous orc).I cordially invite you!Orcs dont establish kingdoms or states as people do. Still, there are lands that are under total control of the Orcs or their smaller cousins - the Goblins. Most Orcs distinguish between two types of land: "green" and "other pieces".        The more ambitious warlords see the world more accurately: "my green", "green what will be my" and "other pieces".Orcs and Goblins are the most numerous in the Badlands. There are also other areas in which they remai
