Hobgoblin, it was your figures that put the idea into my head.  I remember seeing your figures and thinking "I got those guys somewhere around here"  I thought I saved the picture of them but I couldn't find it and I forgot where I saw them.

Ah - I'd assumed it was "parallel evolution", as those heads fit so well with the bodies! Glad to see the trick being used so well here - it really livens up those old monopose orcs. And you've done a much better job than me at varying the weapons (I had no patience to carve away all those huge pommels!).

As an aside, I can't help noticing that your assembled horde is the perfect size for a Dragon Rampant warband - three 12-strong units of Light Foot, one with Mixed Weapons, (for a total of 14 points) plus an Elite Foot leader & guards (6) and either Bellicose or Heavy Foot (4) for the other large orcs.

Here are my adventurers that have responded...so far...to hunt the orcs and goblins.  With just the 5 of them they may have bitten off more than they can chew. 







They are all Reaper miniatures and were a blast to paint.  I removed the bases and put them onto metal washers.  When ever I find out what I'm going to add to the orcs/goblins bases, these guys would get the same treatment.
C&C always welcome.  More pics at http://theparadeground.blogspot.com/

I don't understand how bright green could have become the staple colour for the Orcs and Goblins, when this works better by far!! Well done. Love your collection of heroes too!

Great set of war bands - I'm rooting for the Orcs!

They look great!
A nice group, that works well together. Classic party composition without looking cliché.
I like 'em!

Here is a dwarf for another band of adventurers.  This group has more of a Viking influence than the others.  He is a Reaper Bones miniature.  Not too keen on the Bones figures, the price is great but they are too bendy for my liking.  Although, paint and varnish helped stiffen him up.  One thing I did learn is that you don't spray paint the base coat on.  It never dries but stays tacky.  The camera/lights are playing tricks cause the figure isn't that shiny.  Any C&C is welcome.
