Orc boar boyz - the boss

Finally, the boss of the unit. The boarboyz are taking more and more shape.

I'm a great fan of back banners, I honestly don't know why. Maybe it's because you do not see them all that often?

Besides, I like the idea of various mobs in the horde being from various tribes. This boss is the tribal chief and so stayed in charge of his boyz despite himself being bullied around by Zorgoth, the horde warboss.

Four more to go!

Orc boar boyz - grunt with spear #2

See, told you I persevere!

I love these models. They are so characterful and well-designed it's a true pleasure putting them together.

 Like I told you already, the shields will come as the very last bit. For now I'd like to focus on the models themselves.

Agnieszka paints: Shaedra, female paladin, Reaper Miniatures

Another one from under my beloved's brush. This mini has been featured already as a WIP.  

This time the mini itself is finished, now Agnieszka is working on the base. Obviously.

Tell us what you think!

Orc boar boyz - banner bearer

As far as my own projects go I'm still working on the orc army and the term "stuck" comes to mind more and more often.

I'm not a hundred percent sold on the banner, but I've never painted a tartan pattern before, so for the first time I think it's... let's say adequate.

I persevere with this unit and the end is in sight. Stay tuned.

Agnieszka paints: The Hobbit. EfGT Bombur the dwarf.

Thought the Miniworks were dead again?

Well, to be honest they were for almost a year. Again, real life reared it's ugly head and I honestly didn't have any material of satisfactory quality to show. But with some recent developments that changed and I proudly present Bombur the dwarf, painted by my very own girlfriend.

It's a true joy to see how hooked she became on the Hobbit franchise and miniature hobby as such. Expect more from her in the coming posts.

See you on Tuesday!

Orc army project - the story so far

Hello folks. Recently the Miniworks hit 50 subscribers (51 now, even!) and I decided to post an orc army shot as a "thank you" to all you fellow miniworkers out there who happened to like my blog enough to visit it regularly.

Here you are, my current project so far:

  1. The arachnarok spider. First major airbrush job and by far the biggest model I've painted to date. Finished.
  2. Savage orcs. Twenty four badasses with varying weapons and poses. As the arachnarok was the biggest so these guys are the most ragtag project I've completed.
  3. Night goblins, fifty with a filler. Currently working on the last eight.
  4. Giant, specifically Bologs of the Albion Giants set. Wonderful model and the only metal one in the army. Completed.
  5. Mangler squigs. Completed. My favorite bit of this army so far.
  6. Boar boyz, currently on the workbench. Three finished out of ten planned.
  7. Wolf riders. Converted wolves, kitbashed riders. Second favorite unit.
  8. Savage orc shaman, converted. Possibly the first to be completed.
  9. Squig hoppers - planned. Oh, the plans I have for these boyz! You thought my savages are unorthodox, hm? Wait and see...
  10. Orc warboss on boar - planned. Will definitely convert the excellent Gorbad Ironclaw model.

There you have it. This project is nearing completion, but I'm completely unable to give you any dates.

Thank you for following Drazhar's Miniworks. Your support is in a considerable part what makes this hobby worthwhile.

Orc boar boyz - grunt with spear #1

The first one's buddy. As previously, he still needs a shield, but other than that he is done.

What do you think?
