Lets start with some art, from Chad at Maximum Rock and Roleplay :
Created for Ral Partha and not Orctober at all I had to ask if I could post this up for Orctober. Chad said yes so this is just one of a bunch of really great pieces. Chad has done real justice to the figures these depict (more on them lower down from Springfield) the oldschool AD&D vibe of these is just so awesome. Do go and check out Chads other stuff, you won't be disappointed.
I'm a bit jealous of how quickly he painted these to such a nice standard.
Some ancient (well late 70's) Ral Partha orcs. The Blue skin is a different choice for sure but they are looking great for it, I always felt these sculpts looked a bit Roman and the Rune painted on the shields really gives these boyz a Late Roman look. Admittedly they were painted a few years ago but it's good to see them here.
Baggage trains are so ignored though I have seen a few great examples of late. This waggon very Orcish with all the gubbins on it and the mixed crew of reprobates we also get our second short story for Orctober.
They are shaping up nicely for sure nd a cool technique with the white layers I guess washed with green.
Creepy little blighters. The blue faces are a nice touch, wait, more blue green skins whats going on!
The first orc painted is stunning. I look forward to seeing the rest. Incidentally he's using the warband rules I put out last Orctober.
Nicely done, you have to go a see how Sean had him painted up until recently.
Our first battle report and it looks like so much fun. Based on Captain Crooks Death Race 40000 from BOYL15 I know how much fun it must have been, nice report from RV.
Nice subtle painting and a cool conversion on the mohawk boyz axe.
Lovely painting and a half orc I've never seen before. What a quiff.
Golfag is expanding his mighty hoard with some more Black mountain boyz:
