Back to them Orcs.

OK so a while ago I challenged people to post something Orcy in Orctober with the promise of miniatures for the first name out of the hat. I must say, particularly given how few posts I managed, the response was great for a first crack at this idea.

We had a scenario from WP. Lots of fun with a special troll.

An interesting look at 1:72 orcs with Sean. Who knew, still looking to see more.

My brother gave us a great special character, unit and general look at his collection

An ace bit of orcy dadhammer from Kasper and Sons.  Would love to see what your guys make of the orcs, name from hat permitting.

A trip through orcs in 80's pop culture (or maybe that's geek culture) from Thantsants.

Some Black Mountain boys looking wonderful and menacing from Phreed.

Painting by Zhu.
A painting no less and cool musings on more ancient culture and orcs from Zhu.

A bit of a review of mantic's orcs from Paradox0n.

Loki (Andrew) gave us some vibrant and awesomely painted new savage orcs.

A salvage job on an old machine of distruction from Kaleb.

Some modern boars and semi-vintage boyz were presented with nice paint tutorials from TWD.

Goff Orks looking hard as nails ( and literally saved from being shot) from asslessman.

Old school motivations for you're orcs presented by Paul.

Technically late but actually great Orc wimmin from Tartar Sauce. I think Dorra Skullcrusher may well be the Buxom Sawtooth female of Ashcans dreams.

Also a number of people posted over at LAF.

All names have been put in d20 random table and the dice gods were consulted. I'm pleased to say if he wants them Paul Brown has some Orcs coming to him. I'm going to need your address so if you PM me on the Oldhammer forum or on the LAF forum I can get them sent to you.

Ashcan lifted the puny human up by the neck and looked him in the eye,"wot appened ummi?"
"What can I say", choked Erny,"once more life got in the way."

So what can I say guys after some truly marvelous posts of Orctober I managed to get posted about 10% of what I hoped. Life once more got in the way, I had two deadlines at work brought forward by a couple of months, a troublesome mini Erny waking up in the wee hours and a holiday cottage that proved to have less useful broadband than expected.

Still Orcs are ones to invade and break the rules so I hope (fingers crossed) to post much of what I had hoped in the now more clumsily named Orctober over spill Norctober (haha he said Norc). I'll put together the names for the fantasy regiments orcs and pick a winner soon and still haven't given up on posting a competition for another set of perhaps more wanted orcs in the future.

Normal service (whatever that is) to resume soon.
