RASHER AND THE BACON BRIGADE

Some orcs for my Prehammer Joe Dever armies. Classic Minifigs D&D orcs, with pig snouts and groovy helmets as depicted in the Monster Manual.


I remember seeing these in the cabinet at Games Workshop Hammersmith (1 Dalling Road) painted up in green armour so decided to do the same.





I've added the Crimson King motif in miniature to their chest and back discs to show their allegiance, and they are grey based for dungeon use too. I bought these figures recently, new from Caliver Books / Miniature Figurines, and although I am delighted Dave Ryan is re-releasing these old sculpts, the orcs here were very badly encased in great lumps of flash and excess metal. So be warned as they are not cheap.

    1. Thanks Joe, it ranks as one of my faves too, (only "Watching me Watching you" spoils it for me). If you haven't seen it for my first blog post, I did the ship from the cover, and I have dwarf crew and seal drivers in the pipeline! Just very busy with life and other gaming projects as well.

  3. Lovely stuff and I do like the Green armour. I know what you mean about the Minifig/caliver classic figures. I always want to buy them but they are quire pricey to take a chance with.

    1. Yes, I know Dave Ryan has a living to make, but I can't help thinking he's overcharging for the Minifigs.....still, I'm grateful he's still making them, so mustn't grumble. I'm working on some Minifigs Kobolds at the moment.
