I've just finished painting the Orc models from Dwarf Kings Hold: Green Menace
, the first thing to note is that these are the same models as the orcs in Mantics standard Kings of War range, you get 2 Greatax (bigger orcs with big double handed axes) and 6 Ax (normal orc warriors) as well as an assortment of little orclings (which I've not painted yet). I Like them a lot, they give the impreesion of big mean vicous and brutal orcs, not the caricatures of orcs some companies put out, and for some reason I particulary like the shape of the sheilds. The only issue is that they're a bit top heavy and tend to fall over a lot, I might end up having to base them after all (square bases are provided if bought as Kings of War models, but are not provided in DKH) If I ever revamp my Orc and Goblin army several units of these will find their way into it.

They are nice orcs, but I like Wargames Factory's orcs too.ReplyDelete
