The Dungeon Project: Orcs Below








In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game, orcs are a primitive race of savage, bestial, barbaric humanoid. The orc was one of the earliest creatures introduced in the D&D game. The D&D orc is largely based upon the orcs appearing in the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. from Wikipedia

More figures, this time of orcs and a mountain troll for my dungeon project. One of the orcs is a metal figure from the same line while the other is named "half-troll" but will be a suitable orc muscle guy :)


These are from Mage Knight, with the click bases removed. these will be rebased and repainted.

  1. Always good to see MageKnight figs get some love. The Orc Builder is also a great sculpt for using in a dungeon game. So are the Orc Heroes from the Dungeons and Pyramid expansions.

    Keep on modeling.

Army Building: Using Gormiti for Fantasy Wargaming

The funny thing about doing some house chores is that I inadevertently unearth stuff that I've kept stashed for some time. In this case, I found a boxful of toys I bought a year ago. Among the odds and ends I found some vinyl toys, gashopon & Gormiti figures. I've been holding on to some of these figures that I found at the local toy department and I've been eyeing some as new recruits for various fantasy armies.

The big four armed bruiser with the tree-like limbs and vines seems a likely candidate as a behemoth in my People of the Woods army as an ent. A resculpt of the head and a bit of a trim at the left hand may do the trick. As is, the monster looks like he's giving someone the dirty finger:)
Aside from the Ad&D Battlesystem and Warmaster rulesets, I'm also swaying towards HOTT as another regular ruleset and found a seller in ebay. Pretty soon, I may purchase the rules and begin my foray in HOTT. Meanwhile, the fishy thingie shown below could stock up …

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…
