So its ORCTOBER a celebration of all thats green and good!
It starts innocently enough. If I have a bloodbowl team, I need some bloodbowl fans, Right!
It also gives me the chance to buy any miniatures I find interesting which I would not have an excuse to buy otherwise.
|I LOVE ORCS!!!!|
So the first thing I do is use this as an excuse to keep hold of my Goblin ooligans I bought when I was 15 (which have always been amoung my favourate miniatures)
I also rescue some old loft find Fantasy Orcs which I also bought when I was 15.
I could not wait to get some paint on these.
|Every team needs some fans right?|
I find an Orc Shaman and some Goblin forge miniatures on ebay and suddenly I have 8 fans.
|And they tell their friends|
Now I figure they would make loads of noise and suddenly half a dozen musical (?) Orcs turn up in the post.
|And then you get the "glory hunters"|
The lovely thing is I also find some of my minis I painted when I was in my early teens. Rather then repaint them they go striaght onto the bleachers.
Nostalgia it's not what it used to be!
|And then it just gets silly!!!|
Every fan needs a big foam finger the idea from watching the NFL game at Wembley and 15 min with some green stuff and I am more then happy with the result!
|everyone needs a big foam finger!|
The Reaper Ringmaster is a figure I have had my eye on for ages and this was the perfect excuse to buy him.
|Bring the noise!|
and then I spotted the wookie on ebay and I have never seen a more appropriate figure. Click that buy button.
|of course Wookies and the Reaper would be Bloodbowl fans!|
I buy some Reaper barrels and bottles and suddenly everyone is having fun and look the part.
The frightening thing is there are LOADS of minis I have my eye on for this and I think this is just the tip of the ice berg.
|I LOVE ORCS!!!!!|
The cool thing is I WANT to paint every one of these figures and so far everyone has been a pleasure.
These guys have been a WIP since January and figured Orctober was a good time to reveal the results so far.
