Beyond being BEAUTIFULLY painted, the Old Greenies are all new to moi. The never made an appearance in the local hobby store when they were new...most of the older Citadel never did. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks. I suppose it was much harder to find these miniatures in my country too. But in 1984 I was playing with duplo and other toys for small children of 6 years old ;)
I knew miniatures later, thanks to Hero Quest. I suppose it was in 1989-90. :D

A great follow-up to this would be the baddies from the Warhammer FRP cover. One orc - the one with the black plume and axe - seems to appear in both!



Nice idea :) I have the Warhammer RPG book too.
The idea is yours, then you could try to create two warbands (good and bad guys) using these characters :)
...and maybe use them in a warhammer quest or hero quest board :D

I wonder if all of those are based on actual miniatures. The good guys are, I think. The ogre is, and the orc with the axe and black plume. And that's Fangor Gripe (the cyclops orc) in the corner with the two scimitars. The great goblins come from here:



But what about the other orcs? The standard-bearer might be based on the armoured orc with bulging eye, scimitar and shield, but he's not that close.

Welcome in my world :)
It could be not easy to find the right miniature from an oldhammer picture.
If you know the artist of the cover and maybe he is on facebook or has another contact somewhere and he is kind too, you could ask directly to him if he used some real miniatures for his cover art ;)

Meanwhile, today I received the Wizard, orc with standard, Orc with axe, Orc with scimitar, shield and javelin (the first two swapped from another oldhammer guy and the other two bought on evilbay for 4,50 each).
Now I only need the Chaos Warrior Daethskar, a really generous gift from a nice oldhammer guy... I hope it will arrive soon, it is about 19 days from his shipping (sometime shipping is slow)

Great stuff! This lot would make an excellent ASOBH warband; that game (or the dwarf supplement - I forget) has rules for outsize balls and chains, and it's easy to stat up the chaos goblins (Group Fighter for two-head, perhaps, for example).

That's put a big smile on my face. That's a fantastically lunatic project and I'm so pleased you're succeeding so well.

Excellent!

Incidentally, it occurs to me that the great goblin behind that fellow in the WFRP painting is based on a misreading of the catalogue illustration - or at least he's acquired the club of the chap next to him. So, although the figure is based on an actual model, there's a slight "Chinese whispers" effect that would make it difficult to replicate without conversion.

Fantasy Project Idea of the Year!
 8) 8) 8)

What a great idea and execution!
 :-* :-*

It must have both serious fun whilst at the same time quite frustrating, trying to identify them from those line drawings in the old catalogues.
You are cracking along so well with this wonderful idea and I await the next update with much relish.
 :D



(For the record: I had no idea that those illustrations were based on actual figures either...)

Fortunatelly I recognized almost all of the characters, just two I'm not sure, then I chose two generic orcs that could be similar (a standard bearer and orc with scimitar).

Here the orc with scimitar (and javelin).

Now I must wait the arrival of the chaos warrior (shipped to me in 27 october, I hope it is not lost during shipping :( )
and I must find a nice orc standard bearer, I was considering the two ones in the last picture I included (somebody have it for trade or sell?).
