And even more orcs......

Pig-Faced Orc Warriors II are nearing completion.

And here is the first look at the Pig-Faced Orc Veterans I.  These guys are supposed to be more heavily armored than your average orc.  Some of them will have heavier looking helmets and all of them have the thigh guards.

Updated Pig-Faced Orcs

Just a quick update on the Pig-Faced Orcs.

Pig-Faced Orc Warriors I:  Ian has added the slotta tabs, cut the scimitar (and hand) off of pose 1 in preparation for his new scimitar, and pose 4 has his flail in place and is just waiting for a new hand.

Pig-Faced Orc Warriors II:  Coming along nicely.  It is interesting to see the progress from blank to a more finished product.  Doing things this way saves me around 50% of the cost of each miniature.  With plans for 14 sets of orcs using these blanks it will save a lot of money for other miniatures.  I have commissioned Ian for a fifth blank to add a little more variety in future releases and I am considering having him do a sixth blank.

More Orcs

Just wanted to post up some very work in progress pics of Pig-Faced Orc Warriors II.  Interesting to see how Ian works from a blank to a finished miniature.

From left to right the polearms are Spetum, Voulge, Glaive, and Fauchard-Fork.  I am planning on doing another set of polearmed orcs that will have a completely different set of weapons.

Pig-Faced Orc Warriors I

I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday season.  Things slowed down over the holidays but work is progressing on the first four sets of orcs.  Here are some pictures of Pig-Faced Orc Warriors I.

Figure 1

Figure 2

This figure will be armed with a two headed flail.

Figure 3

Figure four is having his scimitar redone to look a little more sinister.  As soon as he is updated I will post a picture.
