Anyone paying close attention to my Lead Mountain posts may realise I have claimed a number of finished models yet to be seen on the blog, well to start addressing this I present seven orcs that have already seen action in a roleplaying session.
I bought these from a very disorganised vendor at last years Castle Donnington show so they have been in my queue for a little over a year. Given how long so much of the figures have been waiting not too bad.
They are old Grenadier sculpts but had been (according to the seller) cast more recently though some of the figures had that old lead look about them. They had large mould lines on them which took a lot cleaning but did leave nice looking figures.
I started them quite a while ago but as I already have quite a number already and as such did not actually need them until the other night when I needed far more than the players could handle and we had a right old time of the players (and others) fighting a running battle through the streets.
I wanted them to look as if they had been busy hacking up other humans so went heavy with the blood on the swords, well it is Fantasy after all. Only got a decent shot of the backs as the camera focused on the background.
Still got a few more posts to do on the figures painted in October, yes I am that far behind which will be a good job I think as I have a busy month ahead of me with a few nights away.
