Happy first of Orctober, my quest to make October the nations favorite holiday with a celebration of all things green skinned. Starting this month of Orcy wonder off right I thought it best to start with a giveaway. You see to further the aim of converting the world to my new holiday I’ve dug through my lead pile looking for little gems to give away. It’s all in an effort to get you all celebrating along with me. Just think of me as Father Greenskin dropping down your chimney every Orctober with bundles of goblinoid cheer.
Anyway back to the giveaway, I’ve dug through my lead pile and come up with a bunch of plastic. Amongst many things Orctober is about the unexpected. Here they are, a usable sized unit of Orc boyz made from the ever classic Warhammer regiments uni-pose orcs.
There are twelve here though I will probably be able to dig out at least three more. You will also notice about half have the original shields which makes them a bit rarer. I may be able to find more of the said shields in the surplus pile but cannot guarantee anything. Yes they need a bit of a clean up but nothing to strenuous.
So how do you get your mits on these? Easy post an Orc (or Ork I guess) related post on your blog or forum of choice, make it clear it is for Orctober linking back here and make it a bit more meaningful than a couple of lines just to qualify for the draw. Post back here a link to your article/post/whatever and I’ll enter you into a draw at the end of the month (so you have until the 25th) first out gets the Orcs if they want them. Reasonable postage paid (i.e. a few quid) otherwise I’ll have to ask for some help on that one.
As motivation here are a couple of shots of my own in a unit looking quite nice even if I do say so myself you'll have to find your own command!
