Those dwarves look amazing, and the gargoyles suitably "stony"

Thanks for the positive comments folks. I'm glad you like what I've made.

I've added a couple of new units to my army of evil doers. I bought a box of Wargames Atlantic goblins and a box of Oathmark Goblin riders. They came out okay and I did a bit of kit bashing on both boxes. I've only painted a single unit from each box so far but I'll get the rest done in the next few days.

There's more pics and a bunch of writing on my blog @: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2021/12/have-very-orcish-christmas.html



Below is a link to my blog. It's the place where I write uninteresting things about little toy soldiers. I do this because I refuse to grow up and behave like an adult.

I'm not sure what you've done differently, but you have those oathmark wolves looking pretty good. Maybe it's  the dark colour scheme? Anyhow, I quite like them.

Yeah, those Wargs do look better than usual. Not as chunky looking. Great work! I really like both the Osthmark and Wargames Atlantic sculpts for that Angus McBride Tolkien vibe.

They do say black is slimming, so maybe there is something to the idea that the colour scheme makes the wolves look less tubby.

In any case, I like your work on both units. I havenít picked up the WA goblins yet, but yours and some of the others here on LAF have me tempted!

My first post for the new year and it's more orcs and goblin wolf riders. I decided to rebase my orcs, which are really Wargames Atlantic Goblins. The models are weird to put together but their faces are really nice and they look great when painted. I'm not a big fan of the Oathmark wolf riders. They look okay and they'll do the job. The riders are okay but it's the wolves that I have issues with (and I know I'm not alone in this). I did this second lot as archers.

Anyway... There's more photo's on my blog at: https://this28mmlife.blogspot.com/2022/01/more-orcish-recruits.html

You certainly brought out the best from those models, despite the shortcomings in how they were designed- they look great!
