Default Orcs & Goblin Refresh

Hey guys,

Just starting a new PLOG for my Orcs and Goblins. A lot of them are already painted, but I need to go through and refresh the bases and I'll probably look at replaceing some of them and at least repaint some of them. This was the first army I ever started painting it was started back in the mid 90's so some of the models are quite dated.

I've started on the refresh of the bases, the old ones were just goblin green with green flock, so they looked like they were walking across a freshly mown lawn... Just doesn't look right for O&G.

I'll be using this as a break from painting Purple and Bone for my Eldar, so this PLOG will be even slower moving than that one. Just a few pics to get it started now:







As you can see the banners need to be redone, they're way to neat and clean. I'm thinking about picking up some of the new Savage Orc Boar Boyz and replacing that unit. I've got more stuff to show, but I haven't taken pics of them yet (they're still in the shed) I'll get them sorted out when I can, no promises on time-line, I want to stay focused on my Eldar. Like I said, I'll just be using these guys when painting the weedy looking eldar gets to be too much and I need some Green in my eyes.

I like how they smile

failing to plan is planning to fail

Huzzah! For this plog!!

Those are really wonderful models, man! I'd keep them if I were you!

Can we please get close-up views of those night goblins??? Maybe a picture per rank? I spy middle-finger gobbo back there and I'd like a closer look! hahahaha

I'll get some close ups of the Night Gobs for you. Maybe later tonight. There are 2 of the middle-finger gobbo.

Thanks for the encouragement!

Whoa, you've got some old models there! The models themselves kinda suck, but your paint-job is good. Nice job!

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

That's stage one of the refresh. Repainting the bases. I've done the Savage Orc Boar Boyz.

Thanks! The Black orcs in particular were a bit rough to paint. Lack of detail in the plastic, coupled with the fact that they are all identical made it a hard job.

I love how evil those old Night Gobbos look! And they do it literally without baring their fangs! hahah It's the beady eyes that does it, I think (thanks to your very good painting!)

Loving the white wolf in the second Wolf Rider picture.. reminds me of Jon Snow's pup from AGoT.

Thanks for sharing!
