Hello fellow LAFers. In this thread I'll present you some of my Fantasy collection. It's mostly old GW and Rackham 28/32mm with 15mm coming in from Copplestone, Demonworld & Co.

I'm a thematic collector. I own quite a lot of stuff, but nearly no playable armies. Therefore if I play, I like to play systems with a low model count. SoBH, Mordheim etc.

Apart from GW's Old World, I'm very much into Moorcock and Conan.

Gentlemen, please excuse my aweful photography, and I hope, you enjoy the following.

Another Oldhammer Orc. He's somehow angry and doesn't care so much for armor and stuff.

Grom the Paunch. He's got a speeding ticket on his chariot, which he cannot pay (damn gobbo police!), and therefore joins the fight on foot. Needs some more lights on the helmet.

Orc with polearm. He's a really cunnin' git, yet is also missing his shield.

It's so difficult to get those plastic shields for Oldhammer minis. On ebay their price is only slightly less than gold, it seems.

Another Orc without shield. This one is a pretty clever one-piece-casting that still looks pretty dynamic and looks week even next to new minis.

A still glorious Rackham Orc, painted by shades and lazes only over a grayscale foundation.

Frenzied Orc boy. I think, he'z just been told, that GW doesn't produce metal orcs with character anymore in favor of legions of poorly designed plastic orcs.... ;)

And finally an orc in chainmail holding either a spear or a ballista bolt.

Always good to see a oldhammer stuff.

It's so difficult to get those plastic shields for Oldhammer minis. On ebay their price is only slightly less than gold, it seems.

You can get resin shields from other places though I think? Must be something out there that fits the bill.

Great stuff! I like the Perry orc (with the club) the best. I always find Perry orcs much easier to paint than Adams ones, for some reason: something to do with the facial detail, I think. Did you experience anything similar?

For shields, it might be worth looking at the GW beastman ("gor") ones: they're the right size and suitably hung with gruesome trophies. You'd have to cut down the bosses, though. Example here (sorry, the shots of the shield could be better!). They're relatively easy to pick up on eBay if you look for "beastman shields".

Great selection of old Citadel classics.
You have really brought the character out of them.

I like the greyscale shaded orc.
It is a technique that I have used in the past and something I should use more often as it is pretty effective.

Same here; the Perry orcs also have the advantage, that no one seems to produce similar sculpts anymore, while the Adams orcs have been copied all over the places, it seems.

Thanks for the advice with the Beastmen shields. I didn't know they would work that well; need to get some.

PS
Awesome painting on that orc, dude. It's from the Claymore Saga, isn't it? That game, Hero Quest and the old Fantasy Warriors box made up 90% of the wargaming collection in my group back then.
