This past golden hat I set myself a challenge. To make an army. I’d never seen an entry be as big as that before. Not a miniature or a unit of them, but an army. What follows is a document of my endeavours.
Ladies and gents, I present to you entrant number 17, the disqualified horde. The Wolves of WoE.
This army only exists because of two reasons.
@Tyranno was interviewed on our CDO podcast, here. His love for the faction and ideas about how they could exists as a fighting force and cultire inspired me. The Khan of this lot is names Tyrannah Khan in your honour buddy.
Hobgrots were released by GW. The AoS fans didn’t want them. eBay was flooded. They were bloody cheap!
The Campaign for Real Orcs (if you know, you know)
Making the army
This army is mostly plastic and games workshop bits. The hobgrots form the basis of most of it but there are conversions using older hobgoblin bits, battle masters pieces and plastic Wolves.
Painting the army
This was a speed paint in the extreme. Almost all of the army is contrast paints , with heavy highlights, finished off with streaking grime. I made my own hobgrot flesh with a greenier instead of yellowy hue by mixing skeleton horde and green contrast together . @warcolours paints did the heavy lifting with highlighting .
The Finished Army
Why were they disqualified from voting?
These sneaky sneaky gits snuck their way into a CDO webzine before the deadline of the competition. Typical Hobgoblin behaviour.
They fought the empire in an epic battle pictured below:
CDO spiritual liege/competition monkey, the right honourable @Admiral very kindly allowed them into the competition to take part but we decided the gits had been too sneaky to deserve any medals.
