Oldhammer orc and goblin warband

I finally finished this big project, thanks to Gork and Mork for the speedpaints! 
 So many miniatures! 
I tried to make this as oldhammer and cheap as possible. 
Almost all the minis are from boardgames or are very common old plastic miniatures, the damaged one where kitbashed. 
The only exceptions are the troll and the squigs. Because I don't want to pay those old metal buggers as jewelry. And the new plastic ones are too modern. So, all the squigs you see are sculpted by me, or are cheap toys I found at the thrift store. 
Other notes: the troll is from bones reaper,it fits very well with the monopose look. The shaman is kitbashed from a damaged orc archer. It's a bit more dynamic than the others, but I don't want to pay gold for an old shaman. I have a painted weirdboy around that can fit the band, but I don't want to strip the paintjob. 
One of the heroes is a 40k ork with a new bow. 
The orc "rogue" it's from Dark World.

Speedpaint orc tutorial

Because I got a lot of questions, here a basic photo tutorial for my monopose orc recipe. P.s. The unlabeled bottle is deathguard green.

Totally not a Conan warband

Here another project I wanted to make for a long time. 
An 80's style warband. Something it looks like it came from an He-man cartoon. 
Unfortunately I have not enough old monopose miniatures for a full warband, so I added some more modern miniatures. They will be replaced in the future, maybe. 
I'm also lacking monster men with the right look. Maybe some old Warhammer lizardmen? 

The monopose are from Talisman, warhammer quest, dark world, Battle master and harlequin miniatures. The big snake is a toy, but it fits. As for rules: this should work as Kurgan (marauder of chaos) warband for Mordheim. But mostly as a d&d encounter.
