Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum had their first “Golden Tom” Painting Competition, which got me off my lazy ars and got me to paint another Mordheim Orc Big Un.

I have just under a month left in the 1-inch base competition, and I’ve finally put aside a small amount of time for my entry. (I was extremely busy last month… right guys…?) First, the pictures, then I’ll explain what my entry is for.

Starting Orc & Goblin Mordheim Warband

Mordheim Tactics,Orcs and Goblins
Author: Ashton Sanders

I got forced into Orcs when I started up Mordheim again because I was the only one with the Mordheim warbands, and I couldn’t just have Skaven Warbands. But boy am I glad I did. I now understand the craze people feel for the greenskins. I’m in the middle of a campaign with a Orc and Goblin Warband, and I’m doing pretty well. I’ve developed/read about/seen a couple different tactics for starting an Orcs and Goblins warband in Mordheim, and I’ll try to share my thoughts on them here:

Orc and Goblin Necessities

No matter what direction I go with a Orc and Goblin Warband, I will always get all four heroes (200gc) as that directly affects my income after every game. Only getting four heroes to start is probably the biggest draw-back for the Orcs and Goblins.

Squigs and Goblins and Orcs, Oh My!

This is the warband I am currently playing with, and is probably the most fun of the Orc and Goblin warbands to start with. Read the Rest of the Post >

Painting Squigs

Author: Ashton Sanders

Now that I’ve removed the paint from my metal Squig yesterday, he needed some new paint today. Since I am going with an orange theme for my Mordheim Orc and Goblin Warband, my cave squigs are going to be orange.

First thing to check is to make sure there are no mold lines still on the model. (I never knew to check for these on metal models, so I started painting my first coat before I realized they were there) I took a razor blade and trimmed them back the best I could.

Mordheim Warband

When I first started playing with Orcs and Goblins, my brother put together a ridiculous warband with a bunch of goblin fanatics and a troll, etc. I picked up the rulebook the other day, and put together a couple sample warbands.

To Troll or not to Troll?

This is definitely a difficult question, since Trolls are so bad-ass. Read the Rest of the Post >

I saw a model today that had a thick black mustache, and all I could think was “MARIO”!

Skaven Miniature Painted

Mordheim Models,Skaven
Author: Ashton Sanders

Here is my third Mordheim model/miniature. Since I’ve already done two Mordheim Orc Miniatures, I decided to do a Skaven miniature. I found a mini that I had glued together seven years ago, and went at it. I gave it a good black base paint. Kind of like the orange theme I gave to my orcs, my Skaven is going to be Blue. I’m getting much better at painting, but I screwed up the Skaven’s hands pretty good. It’ll get better with practice. Anyway, here you go. Let me know what you think:

Painting Orcs – Almost Done

Author: Ashton Sanders

I’ve finally gotten around to painting my first two models since I grew up

Orc Warband Storyline:
I haven’t settled on a complete storyline for my Orc Warband yet, but these Orcs’ homeland has a odd, orange stone that when smashed into powder and rubbed on skin with water creates a great Orange Dye. This is why they have Orange warpaint all of themselves, kind of like Scottish Orcs with orange (instead of blue) woad… *stolen from Tom* I have yet to do the face painting, but I have decided that two orange stripes is this warbands signature.

I also wouldn’t normally take such up-close pictures, as it shows too many flaws ;}, but I’m still on a learning curve. =] Here’s a picture that isn’t too close:
