Orctober 2017...

Orctober has arrived... do we really need an excuse to paint and base some old-school 1980's greenskins??!?
Some C15 Orcs from the Perry's- Cyclops, Nazram, Tizog, a Kev Adams archer and a Pre-Slotta Fantasy Tribes Armored Orc clambering over the hills below the pass.
More to come.

Pre-slotta Greenskins...

A few pre-slotta lead pieces that were resurrected from heavy enamel finishes…
I dig the savage look of the Fantasy Tribes Orc from ’82- the sculpt seems to have been a starting point for Bagrash from Orc’s Drift.
I’ve always loved the C13 Goblin ball and chain wielders since seeing them in Kev Adam’s army from the Armies book.
The Mummy is a Citadel Fiend Factory piece from around 1980 which is probably the oldest Citadel piece in the collection aside from a couple of Ral Partha wizards that are stamped 1979.

From beyond Black Fire Pass...

Some old lead and some recent acquisitions-
Diving into the boxes and bags in the farthest corners of the cupboard I found a few pieces that I hadn't seen for decades and finished them up over the last few days. These Orc, Goblins and Undead are a mix of white metal miniatures from various years but all hold up well when together. The Fanatic was always a favourite of mine after seeing it in the old Armies book in Kev Adams' army- it is a solid base (pre-slotta) from 1984. The peg legged orc is old piece from 1988 sculpted by Kev Adams- I've added one of my recently produced grotesque shields to his back. The Goblin champion is another Kev Adams sculpt but was released recently by Crooked Claw.




These undead are all North Star range bar the central figure which is an old 1983 solid base Zombie from Citadel's Dungeon Monsters Starter Set. It needed a lot of love after being painted in thick enamels.

Greenskin Grotesque White Metal Shields...

This last weekend on a trip down to Cancon 2017 in Australia, I picked up the first set of white metal casts from Eureka Miniatures and am very happy with the results.
If you are interested in purchasing sets please get in touch via orders@limumworks.com. A set of 8 white metal shields is $10AUD + shipping.
These are the first release- Grotesque Shields 01- and I am working on a number of other 28mm scale Oldhammer inspired pieces.
See previous posts for some painted samples of the resin prototypes.

Orctober...


An update on my sculpted and 3d printed shields- Here are a couple attached to some of the Crooked Claw Kev Adams sculpted goblins. The goblins are classic sculpts which are being produced along with an extra range for the Greenskin Wars Kickstarter campaign.
