Loads more great progress. The volume and quality are both great - even if you keep saying they are quick paint jobs

Thanks, both! Here are some more - I'm working through my backlog of based-up Grenadier orcs. I have a few more unprepped ones, plus a stack of Chronicle giant black orcs to add. There's also a Grenadier ogre here: I prefer the earlier Chronicle ogres, but those, for the most part, work better on 25mm bases. This chap at least fills his 50mm square nicely.

Those Nick Lund orcs are some of all time favorites. Spent a lot of time looking at them in Grenadier newsletters. Nice work on them!

Really good as always. The goblins as half-orcs work very well.

Thanks, chaps!

The goblins as half-orcs work very well.

Yes, they're odd in that some of them are bigger than most of the orcs - and at least as tough-looking. So I can see them featuring as half-orc PCs and NPCs in some of our D&D games. I also like them as leaders of orc units.

Thanks!

Here are some goblins - eight new ones and two old ones rebased for both Oathmark and RPGs. With the ones on my goblin thread, that gives me a 20-strong unit of goblin soldiers. These ones are a mix of Rieder Design/Alternative Armies, Essex, Grenadier and Citadel.

More goblin goodness. The Grenadier guy is splendid. I have him somewhere as part of the Dungeon Monsters boxed set, all resplendent in chipped and garish humbrol.

Thanks, Severian. They're nice, those old Grenadier orcs; I see Mirliton has them back 'in print'.

And Happy Halloween to everyone! (Slightly larger miniatures than usual; I did the devil, but my son made the Mando costume entirely on his own - his skills with cardboard are way beyond mine!

I decided to add a "wulver" to our Oathmark games, so quickly bashed out this Bones werewolf. He was finished on the day of his arrival, so he's another "leadpile-neutral" acquisition.

The drab grey-brown bases look pretty dull in photos, but I find that they work well on the table - both in RPGs and on our wargame mats. I will, perhaps, at one stage add some staining in various colours to liven them up a bit, and maybe some more stones, bones and bits to the bigger ones - but that can wait

That's a nice doggie! Great find!

I found that the effect of "dull" bases often is limited to photos, while in real life and real light the bases look very fitting. Therefore I would probably call this mini done and well done for that  8)

Thanks, guys!

Cheers! I expect that's what I'll do in the end! We have a dark, reddish-brown wargames mat, so these bases fit in quite well with that as well as on dungeon terrain.

Here are some Essex goblins - the king and his bodyguard. I love this range, though few seem to share my enthusiasm for them. They remind me a lot of the goblins in George Macdonald's The Princess and the Goblin - on which Tolkien based his orcs.

Excellent stuff. The Essex range is full of hidden gems (and some charming oddities), isn't it. Those goblins work very well. And the wolfish guy is great. I've got him somewhere, three-quarters done these several years now...

I think if Essex used photos of your figures to advertise them, then they'd sell a lot more. They look great!

There are so many ranges/websites with photos that really don't do their miniatures justice.
