Orcs! Orcs! Orcs, everywhere!






A tableful of 1/72 orcs I'm working on. These are orc models from Caesar Miniatures, Orion Models as well as Hat Industries Sea Peoples drafted for this army. I'm raising me a horde or two!

I prefer Orion Models' orcs over Caesar's but the difference in design means I could develop different themed armies of orcs. The Hat Industries figures were from the biblical Sea Peoples box set but their ugliness make them perfect orc models too. Here's an older post I wrote about these models.

As an aside, I can't seem to find any of the Caesar Miniatures fantasy line sets for sale. Does this mean that Caesar's pulled the plug on these figures?

Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames Page

A bit of nostalgia here. I'm gearing up for a weekend of working on my wargame table and was surfing for inspiration. Happily, I rediscovered Major General Tremorden Rederring's Colonial-era Wargames at the Wayback Machine. This wargaming group's been a source of inspiration ever since I discovered the wonderful world of miniature wargaming. Just look at that picture above and tell me you're not impressed. WOW! was all I could think off when I saw it.




The page has since given its last huzzah and I don't know what's become of the group, but I'm sure I'll be rereading the material they still have archived. A veritable treasure chest of miniature gaming gems, the page embodied the FUN side of miniature gaming, neither taking itself too seriously nor scrimping on the joys of the hobby and its subsidiary hobbies/crafts. It's a pity if such a wonderful resource and such a huge contribution to the hobby is lost. I discovered the page waaaay back then when…
