Here's a little warband of Wargames Factory orcs (with a Reaper leader in one instance, and a Perry/GW half-orc in another):

And some Orks for use as mutants/genetically engineered super soldiers gone wrong in MRDG:

WIP today (almost there, though you wouldn't know it from the horrible cameraphone picture and grisly lighting ...):

Slightly better shots of the wolfrider. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of character in those old Battle Masters faces.

For SBH, I tend to tweak the wolfrider profile slightly to the following:

Wolfrider: Q3, C3; Mounted, Long Move, Savage, Greedy; 48 points.

ASTOUNDING! I somehow missed all the new WONDROUS creations you posted...I miss a lot at my age. They do present a FANTASTIC impression of your artistic skills. I LOVE what you done with the colors & the work on the shields. VERY WELL DONE one & all!

Some seriously impressive freehand work on display here. It gives those older sculpts so much character!

Nice stuff.  Glad to see someone else using the WF Orcs.  While I dislike their "either side" torsos and the limited arms...I think they're a diamond in the rough.  A bit of old school charm to them.

Thanks!

Elbows: I agree. They are frustrating (especially those awful hands!), but there are rewards to be found. I've got a lot more on the go. I think the hunched bodies generally work best. I've had some luck replacing arms with those from GW warg riders; the only problem is that there are only spare right arms in that kit. I think that the GW ungor arms might work too. Otherwise, I'm going to look at swapping hands/weapons with some appropriately Dark Age historical kit: Gripping Beast vikings, perhaps.
