Orcs and Goblins
There are very few characters in the 40k universe that are as iconic as this one. As a matter of fact, it's only now that I'm typing these words that I do realise how Ghazghkull is a big chunk in many ways.I've been meaning to paint this big fellow for a while now but only got to it now because I had the opportunity and someone had been kind enough to get me the model !Read Moar Skullz »
The topics I mostly write about on my blog are "Krüger", "Beyond the Pillars of Heracles" and "battle reports".Krüger is one of my best friends who lived in Berlin for a long time, studying philosophy. We have played many tabletop games and we also played Badminton regularly, talking incessantly about strategy games during the breaks.Unfortunately, Krüger moved to Dortmund at the end of March. A few weeks before he left we wrote a scenario for Dragon Rampant, D3+2 Objectives, which we also tested several times. This blog post is about the last game we played when Krüger still lived in Berlin. It was the 16th game of our campaign "Beyond the Pillars of Heracles", taking place on the imaginary island Waltrop. As objective markers we used some mud huts, I recently finished.The Greeks, who had landed on the northwestern coast of Waltrop some time ago, had put the orc tribes, living there, under a lot of pressure and now made a move to attack one of their villages (hexagon 20 on the campaign map). Heracleides the
Here it is, my Orc team for Blitz Bowl, the little sister of Blood Bowl: the Gouged Eye Scarry Ladz. I painted these in only three weeks! A new record for me. Check out more pictures after the jump.More after the jump
I'm making good progress on my Blitz Bowl Orc team. Four models are done, two more and some markers to go, plus bases. Note the slightly darker skin tone on the Black Ork. Already thinking about a possible paint scheme for the Humans... want to do a pale blue with yellow and white/beige undersuits... what do you think?
I'm painting more Orks for Blitz Bowl, the board game version of Blood Bowl. You've probably seen the test model on the blog a while ago. It's a more "economic" paint scheme than usually, cutting corners here and there, as there are two six model teams included in the game and I don't want to spend months painting them. I try to finish the whole team before Easter, fingers crossed (they might appear a bit later on the blog as we prepare our posts a couple of days in advance). I'm also recording all the painting steps for another of our detailed tutorials, so stay tuned!
While the varnish on my recently finished Skaven Blitz Bowl team is drying (expect a showcase post next week!), I painted this test model for an Orc team in the classic Goff Ork paint scheme. Blitz Bowl, the board game version of Blood Bowl, contains two 6 model teams of Orcs and Humans, and I plan to paint them both.The model was painted almost exclusively with Warpaints from The Army Painter, and speed-painted for my standards. For example, the skin is only washes, glazes and a single highlight. Would you like me to write a tutorial?
Well you know what month this is, not only my birth month, it's Orctober ! Now I've taken part in this Orctober challenge for 4 years now and I have to say I'm always looking forward to it !I'll be honest with you here and admit I never was an orc fan in the first place but painting them has made me love them and now there a sort of happy hobby place I like to get occasion to go back to.So like every year, I just needed the right excuse and this year it was provided by an absolute gent who sent me this bad boy.Read Moar Skullz »
Even though I wasn't posting much on here over the last while I was still painting. In fact I managed to paint an entire 1500 point Ironjaw army for Age of Sigmar over the last year. I didn't like the yellow scheme that Games Workshop went for but I do like my Orruks in yellow as you will have seen with my 40k Orks. Inspired by them I kept the scheme going and embellished it just a little with some checks and flames. Even a little rust and scratches. These are now my regular army while I am painting up my Nighthaunt models and while the play style can be a little flat and boring I still enjoy charging these across the table and wrecking havoc.
Sometimes you do things you never thought you'd do. I never thought I'd paint anything related to Age of Sigmar, and here I am with my 3rd band belonging in it. I never thought I'd get the orruks for Shadespire, but here I am.I didn't like the way they lo
Another model that took me a lot of time.. When I came back to it recently I just wanted to finish it of. Why? The palanquin was a nightmare to paint! It was so annoying that in the end I tossed it back to the closet of shame and decide to build the ki...
