OWAC II Month 3 - Orcs, Snotlings and Mid-Challenge Picture

Well, I’m done for March. One of my busiest months work-wise, and remarkably I’m done by the middle of the month. I don’t know how that happened, but I’ll certainly take it. Perhaps my fear of the shame of a mulligan spurred me on to be extra productive. Well, enough psychology, more pictures.

Today I bring you two units. The first is a unit of orc Snortas. These are the elite orc cavalry of 3rd edition. I used the new orc cavalry from Knightmare Miniatures, as they are significantly larger than the marauder orc cavalry and thus more befitting of elite cav. I painted them in the same scheme as my Big ‘Uns (see pic at end of the post).

5 Snortas on warboars for 135 points

I’m stark contrast from a size perspective are these fellows. 5 bases of puny snotlings. I intentionally made their skin a different color (the old Snot green color) so that they would look like a different species from their Orc cousins. These are some of my favorite Oldhammer models. The sculpting is not the best, but their comic gestures are distinctly Oldhammer in spirit.

5 snotling bases at 25 points each for a total of 125 points

And last but not least, here is a group shot at half way through the challenge.

The list stands as follows:
  • 10 big 'uns = 95 pts
  • 5 snortas = 135 pts
  • 11 arrer boyz with crossbows = 126.5 pts
  • 2 goblin chariots = 108 pts
  • orc stone thrower = 42.5 pts
  • 5 snotting bases = 125 pts
That makes a total of 632 points

I must admit that I'm really getting burnt out painting green. I've prepped some undead and I hope to paint some of those models on the sidelines to get my painting mojo back on. Otherwise, I might have to pull the 'M' out for April after all.

Keep happy painting


  1. This is going to be one of the most gorgeous greenskin armies ever. Can't wait to see how it looks when the challenge is complete! Amazing effort!!!!
