Boing!!

July 23, 2010

Apologies for those of your waiting for pictures of my newly painted Jacks, but I’ve not had a chance to photograph them.

So, in the meantime, here are some Squig Hoppers which I’ve added to my Orc & Goblin army. They were very useful under the old rules (7th Ed), but the changes to terrain and the introduction of “True Line of Sight” has made them if not worthless then ridiculously over costed. Shame as they are lovely figures.

Squig Hopppers - incoming!

Squig Hoppers - outgoing!

I counted these as cavalry models when I bought them, so that’s 8 added to this years painted total. Which leaves me floundering as follows:

Orc Commanders

July 12, 2010

Nothing much finished this week, but quite a lot of figures are stacking up on the “too be varnished” pile. Next week I should have some Cygnar jacks for you, and perhaps some Khador ones too.

In the meantime though here’s a handful of Orc commanders.

Mordor Shaman & Captain

Gorbag? & Grishnakh

Gorbag? & Grishnakh

I suspect the one on the left may be a version of Gorbag, but I’m not sure. The one of the right is certainly Grishnakh though.

That’s four more models towards the 2010 pledge, which now stands at.

Uruk Hai Command

July 2, 2010

Another week, another small update. It may not be much progress, but it is progress.

This time coming off the painting table we have some Uruk-Hai command.

Here’s another copy of the guy I thought was Lurtz, plus a Captain.

And three standard bearers. These must be some of the least stable models I’ve ever come across. All three have had their bases weighted, but they remain wobbly at best.
