Orcy pastry

A short while ago I spotted this TTG Tabletop Games Fantasy MP35 "Orc eating a Pie" model on ebay. And I knew I had to get him. Not because he is that good a sculpt but because he reminded me that I do not have a baggage train for my O&G army. So it was decided - he´ll be the first of the camp followers. I only need 14 more and three carts/wagons.

He has taken a bite alright with those bit teeth of his.

Nice raspberry glazing there on top. I think that´s a bag
he´s holding in his other hand.

I tried to make the pie look like a lemon and raspberry cheesecake. A favorite of all orcs for sure. Inspiration came from this blog.

Green brothers in Chaos

Bought a few pre slotta goblins a couple of weeks ago from Oldhammer forums´ Trading subforum. I was mostly looking for fanatics of which I got three. Then I noticed a chaos goblin shaman and another one that looked like pretty normal goblin to me in the picture. It turned out to be a chaos goblin mutant. One of the fanatics has been seen here with my gnomes and now it´s time to present the chaos goblin duo.

C27 Chaos Goblin mutants Plague and Spiky Shaman. As seen in Aug 1984 flyer.

That´s a lot of warts/pimples on the gobbo. Quite a mad look on that shaman´s face. 

Side view of both mutants. My shaman has only one spike on his back. There is a version with three spikes too. And I´ve seen one with hand pointing straight up and with some hair of his/her head but that could have been a conversion.

Plague will fill a spot in ever groving gobbo unit. And spiky shaman gets to be... well... a shaman. Before him I had only one orc shaman and Spiky comes in very handy.

Garden Warriors

Gnowember is far ahead yet I want to share with you a small group of gnomes I´ve painted over the last couple of days. These chaps came to me from Creatures Underground: Gnomes! kickstarter that I backed. After showing the first painted one of these to my mates it was Traject0ry who named him garden warrior and that name sort of stuck.

The kickstarter ran 16-28th feb and I got my share in my opinion really fast. I chose two five gnome sets so that they could be used as a 10 gnome strong unit some day. I´m not a stunty player but I think I could do a scenario where gnomes would fit in.

The short bunch - all five sculpts of it. These guys aren´t the tallest as even a pre slotta fanatic matches their height.

Two half-pick armed gnomes. These are propably my favorite svulpts of the patch.

Another half-pick, sword and an axe. The axe armed gnome has a sort of Friar Tuck wibe in it. There will be another round of gnomes coming from Krakon games and that should include an infantry command group. Planning on backing that one too.
