A couple more Oilers are done, the Orc Lineman that is one of Kev Adam’s worst sculpts, and the “Catcher” Dwarf with the white glove. Two un-chopped boars are peeking out of the back that will get Dwarf torsos grafted on. I am still attempting to summon the courage to take the hacksaw to them. Soon…
A bold serving indeed of Kev’ Adams finest fare. Citadel’s other best sculptor of the late 80s turned out these chaps in May of 1988, with the exception of the troll – I don’t actually know who sculpted him, but he fits thematically with the team. I painted these guys in late 2009, early 2010. Still old school style painting, no attempt at any sort of light-source highlighting.
I take this team to interstate tournaments mostly, where I pay hundreds of dollars to fly to some exotic location (Canberra mostly) and sit in a room for two days and get beat by other 30-something nerds. Orcs are good in tourneys, especially when they’re being played by someone who is not me.
They’ve had one good run at Cancon in 2010, where I must have lucked into the weakest schedule ever after a rough start and ended up in the top 20. I’d like to think I’m a better player than I was then, but results speak otherwise.
