It’s great to see your veteran warriors be given a deserved polish like this.
As one of the oldest clan in Zharr-Naggrund, the Bluebeards’ clan has been heavily affected by the stone-curse and years and years of feuds and battles. So it’s notorius to have limited ranks. That’s why they rely heavily on warmachines, slaves and mercenary troops (like Black Orcs).
Orcs are among their favorite slaves. Stupid and strong enough to work hard in the mines and happy to receive a role in battle as a “reward”.
Not to say they are sent to the frontline as cannon fodder and rarely come back home…
Here is my block of orcs from an old 6th edition starter set. One of my very first heavy converted regiments, more than 12 years ago. After many years of battles they were in dire need of a refresh. Base and movement tray got chipped, color faded away, dirt…yes, they relly needed some new colors!
Here they are:
These came out beautifully! I especially like how the standard came out.
They look great. I really like the shading on their arms/skin.
@Jackswift it’s because of the beheaded dwarf, isn’t it?
@Zoddtheimmortal thanks. That was one of the main reasons why I decided to refresh the paint job. Add more depth to the skin.
My Artesan Context XXXIV entry!
Bluebeards’ entirely scratch build lava cannon.
Thanks to everybody that voted for me
Another amazing scratch build. Your mastery with plasticard is impressive!
The front bit reminds me of an old glory tank, that i suddenly want again now…
@Zoddtheimmortal THAT was exactly what inspired me. When I saw it the very first time I fell in love. I wanted…no I NEEDED to make a Chaos Dwarf version.
and here it is
It’s always nice when some lead reach my postbox…including some old plastic
BTW my very first Bretonnia miniature ever!
With these two little dirty Dwarfs I’ve almost completed my collection of classic 5th Edition Big Hats. I am still missing 4-5 miniatures from the range but I’ve almost all of them.
Which ones are missing?
@denelian5 I am talking about dwarfs, not hobgoblins. I am still missing the sorcerer on foot, the hero with raised axe, Astragoth and one of the metal warriors.
Yeah, the hero with raised axe is on my want list as well. Hope you find yours in time.
The new guys are already on the painting desk…with few friends from @Fabelzel
