It's ORCTOBER! The stars have aligned, Mork and Gork have announced the Waaagh!, or the Waaarr!, or perhaps none of those things depending on how Old your Oldhammer is. What is for sure is that Erny, of the excellent Erny's Place, has brought Orctober back for a second outing and I'm delighted to be jumping aboard.
My Orctober involves starting putting some paint on this lot...
When it's Gobbotember it'll be the turn of this lot...
These chaps are all Marauder miniatures and I've done next to nothing beyond basing them with Vallejo pumice and spraying them with Halford's car primer.
Perhaps of interest is this chap, one of my Black Orcs who has suffered the indignity of a weapon swap. When I'm done with the unit there will be ten models and as there are only four poses six will undergo similar mutilation. Cutting up old lead feels a bit odd (thankfully one came from ebay broken!) but I don't fancy a unit of identical models. Oh, and if the arm looks massive, well, it is, but the angle of the picture isn't helping much!
So, that's the start of my Orctober, at the rate I paint I'll be going on through Norcvember, Dorcember, Janorcy, Feborcy, Morch, Aporcil... And the rest... It's going to be a green year
