Ockiusís 90s Orcs and Goblins
« on: May 08, 2021, 05:16:03 PM »
Thought Iíd post a few of these recent figures.
The first lot are Mountain Orcs sold by Alternative Armies and sculpted by Kev Adams. They stick out a bit among the AA stock as their other fantasy greenskins are in a very different style.

First orcs (in fact, fantasy full-stop) I have painted in about 16 years!
My armies:
- Henry VIII's army (WIP) 15mm
- Ancient Germans (28mm)
- Ancient Belgae (Gauls with German allies) (28mm)
- Massilian Greeks (Greeks and Gallic mercenaries/subjects) (28mm)
- A few EI Romans (28mm)
- Handful of WW2 British (15mm)
- A load of old 1993-1999ish Warhammer Orcs and Goblins

 Kev also did the Lesser Goblins in the AA range too.

 Would have been great to have seen more orcs in this range.Nice work on them.Still not painted mine since i bought them on release.

Well, such excellent figures to come back to fantasy painting. They do seem to be quite big dudes, ain't they?

Good to see some of the non-GW Greenskins for a change.

A trio of Black Tree Design goblins.
Should really rename the thread Ď90s styleí as I think these are quite recent but fit well with the GW early 90s goblin range that I have lots of.

Savage orc boarboys. Some Citadel, some Black Tree Design/Harlequin.

The slowly growing unit of goblins, all Harlequin/BTD.

And two Orcs by the same make. Big fan of their orcs! Similar to the Citadel 90s ones but meaner-looking and a bit rangier and more sinewy.

Excellent looking greenskins!

A fellow I game with regularly has a number of the ex-Harlequin figures in his collection and from seeing those in-person, I have to agree that theyíre gritty, vicious looking (yet oddly cheerful) 1990s orcs and goblins.

Iím looking forward to seeing your next additions to the horde!

90s O&G is the best kind! These are all lovely looking. Pattus Magnus put it really well there: "I have to agree that theyíre gritty, vicious looking (yet oddly cheerful)...". Spot on!
