Greenest Warriors in Almost 40 Years

Actually, it might be more than 40 years since I painted my one unit of Minifig ME armored goblins with bow and spear. However, I'm finally mature enough again to paint imaginary green guys to go with my imaginary human warriors.
 These are Prince August homecast Orcs
 I suspect that if I work at it, I might be able to coax a tiny bit more facial definition from the mold. When I was painting them  I noticed that one archer seems to be a tiny bit crisper about the face than his clone mates.

I thought these were bound for the Northern Federation but it's perhaps more likely that they were recruited by the Great King.

  1. Excellent figures...I think the crisper chap nearest the camera in the second picture is a Citadel Fantasy Tribes bod from the mid 1980's....but I could be wrong.

    1. or more likely "inspired by? Might even have been tbe same sculptor, I believe a lot of the sculpting is outsourced. This is from their "newer" range but I'm not sure how new, probably '80s or maybe early 90s?
