Here's how things look at this point.
First BATCH ONE, the orc contingent (they're getting the painting love right now):
And BATCH TWO, Gobbos:
The next week should see me get the rest of the orcs painted green, inked (green ink is the last of the 'messy stages' before I start having to be careful where I put the paint), and I hope I'll get at least one more colour in them (either red which is going to be the detail colour, or brown on the wood and the various pouches which to me really are one of the defining features of Oldhammer lead models - clearly Orcs in the 80s like to carry their cash with them...
I'll end by revealing 'DA PLAN' as it currently stands. I'm going to aim to finish the entire army (70 orcs, 40 goblins, two rock lobbers, a giant, a wyvern, and other bits and bobs) by Christmas. To keep my motivation up (and to stop me painting my outlaw gang for Dead Man's Hand) I'm mulling over the idea of putting together an Oldhammer invasion of Warhammer World sometime in January. I reckon a bunch of us playing Third Edition with some classic lead would make for a great day out. Any takers?
