Orcs! Orcs! Orcs!

I can hear the cries from the villagers now.

Black Tree Designs had a fabulous Mega Sale on their fantasy figs, and at 50% off, they were really too hard to pass up. And since they have the old skool look and feel of OldHammer, well even better. I am a real fan of the old style Orcs from the 80's and 90's.






Besides pig-faced orcs, I always thought that the change from man sized orcs to ogre sized orcs was a real miscue. I know they wanted to make them more menacing and hulking, but they really just look like steroided freaks. If orcs existed in those universes and were as large and ravening as they are depicted, I don't care how much infighting there is the humans would have been dead long ago. No contest.



So I prefer the man-sized, evil and rangy looking greenskins for my orcs. So a nice sized starter army has been bought or regular and wild orcs to fill out my ranks for Dragon Rampant.
