Ruglud's Armoured Orcs: Orctober

Another month another challenge. This month being Orctober means I get to revisit my collection of 3rd Edition Citadel Orcs and usually I choose a few nice ones, perhaps from my Goblinoids Combat Card project to ensure that I am get to complete a task I set myself for the month.

This time around I've decided to go big on numbers and actually try and complete a larger task, which in this case is Rugluds Armoured orcs. It may well fall flat when I get mired in painting too many of the same miniature, but I can have a go.
Here they are: 
Pretty much ready to paint. Tonight I will do some basic greenstuff sculpts on their shields and prime them over the weekend so I can start batch painting. I'm probably looking at working in groups of 4 or 5 initially as I have 20 of the bastards to paint.
Wish me luck in keeping my motivation!

They really are a cool unit though, I own the box too and love reading the background information on them:

  1. Switch on some music and get into a repetitive zen like state. Then paint.

  2. Man, I wished I'd gotten these back in the day. Such a cool unit with loads of fun character. You're a lucky sod sir!

  3. Amazing! I love how they had an actual short story on the back of the box! I always loved the "newer" version of these guys (was that 6th ed?) and hadn't realised they had a longer history! Thanks for sharing and good luck with the batch!

  4. Oh wow, talk about a blast from the past.
    Looking forward to seeing the final result.
