Hello to all Octoberfestlers

last year I got so enthusiastic over October Orcs that I decided to do Something I've never done before: Buy fantasy figures (OK, I did some Amazons but they are real, no?)
So here a small contribution of an Orc horde gathering

It all starts with a lonely dancing queen
Image

Then the rhythm section and sexy dancers create supporting heat
Image

The horn section powers it up
Image

The Orc Hord Leader arrives with a Rebel Yell
Image

Hordes are emerging from the dark

All are ready for some beer :beer:
Prost
Michael

P.S. Links in Postimages only give small icone pictures. You have to click them to see the real resolution. It's not great, but better than you see. I'll try to fix that next time.

Hi gentlemen, my last batch of... Orcs :mrgreen:

Two-handed axemen, with warpaints, and a very unpleasant smile.

Image

Ordinary warriors.

Image

And a photo for the (still growing) family album.

Image

Just tell me when you want me to stop :mrgreen: technically speaking, still 11 days to go...

After Orcs, Goblins, Artillery, we need some Trolls !! Here they are:

Image

Three of them have been previously painted, but I've added a chieftain to this unit, the guy with an armour made with several metals. Let's have a look:

Image

and a close-up on the shield, to show the effect of corrosion:

Isn't he cute when he's smiling ?
