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
