Savage Orcs & Goblins

This is my Savage Orc and Goblin army for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. Every unit contains either "proper" savage orcs / forest goblins or a savage themed customisation of a mainstream orc and goblin unit. It was tempting to stick to a purely savage theme however it would have made the army quite weak in many areas and robbed me of a raft of fun modelling projects.

In game terms it represents approximately 4,800 points using 6th/7th edition. All up there are 267 models, every single one metal with the exception of the Big Boss on foot. The vast majority are sculpted by Michael and Alan Perry, whose work is vastly superior to the later plastic versions IMHO. The giant is a ringer from another manufacturer because I wanted a larger trollish creature to match his smaller cousins.

It has taken approximately 3 years to complete, much of it painted during the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge over the Aussie Summer.

And finally some random photos from various angles...


  1. Very nice. Have you gone to age of sigmar with this?

    1. Thanks Ashley. I haven't and won't be. I'm sure there are those who like it but it left me VERY cold. I much prefer mass fantasy battles.

    2. You should try that lot in Kings of War, better game, more tactical, faster. Amazed at the sheer bulk of classic models there quite a collection, but who is the giant troll by?

    3. Thanks AKI. I've thought about giving KoW a go once or twice and really should. I'm a big collector hence the number of classic models. The giant is from Casting Room miniatures. Lovely stuff but he was a complete bugger to assemble and base - loads of pinning required.

  2. Excellent looking army. The Big Bloo giant troll is cool.
    Not seen him before. cheers

  3. As good as they look here - they are even better in the flesh.
    Great stuff Millsy!

  4. Spectacular! They must weigh a lot as well!
