Hello dear readers,
the Christmas lock down has left me some time to have a review of my ongoing miniature projects. One of my all time favorite of these projects is my Dragon Rampant collection of Orcs & Goblins and their natural enemy, the dwarves.
Some many month ago I have ordered more Old School Heartbreaker Orcs from Ral Partha Europe. I can really recommend their ranges and service.
I really love the big Orc with full armour, shield and spear from this range. My idea was to order him a multiple times and then convert the miniatures into an bunch of "Ironskins" Elite Orcs. His helmet, shield and full scale armour makes him perfect for this little project.
The other bits came from my bitsbox and greenstuff.
There was one Orc that took my attention. The bold one with the big double bladed axe. He looked very agressive and brutal. So I wanted to do some extra work on him. I decided to give him an old school looking grim faced shield in the style of Kev Adams. The face of the shield is taken from an orcling hopper from Foundry and was done by a green stuff mold. I filed down the original shield and placed the new face on it with some more green stuff. Looks cool.
Here are some pics of the work in progress on these guys. It will take me some more weeks to paint them all.
