Battle Master ogre

This should have been a quick project, but I lost myself into textures. 
I tryed some new materials and techniques for this big boi, but I wanted something old style.

Malal is still here

After, I don't know, 5 years? I finally made the Malal's chaos warriors I wanted.

It's a very random collection of bits, but mostly from GW and Kings of War.

Thunder warriors strike back

A fun "little" project after the orcs.

This started as a way to make me like the Stormcasters. I had 3 or 4 of those free minis that GW sometimes gifts around and I wanted an excuse to paint gold.

In the end a friend suggested to instead use those bits to make a small band of Thunder Warriors, an unit I never heard off.

A quick Google search and I liked the idea, so kitbash it was. 

The recipe is simple, mostly stormcast bodies, old and space marine arms, cadian heads, orc hair (except one guy who has a demonette scalp, because I finished the orc heads) and a bit of sculpting to blend it together, plus a big fluffy mantle. 

I received some comments on the wips, so here the answers. 

What colors did you used? 

Vallejo's gold, bronze and silver paints, agrax shade and Army Painter's speedpaints. 

The weapons/the insignia are not lore accurate. 

I don't care. That's what I had around. 

Why don't you used/sculpted goggles, as in Blanche's illustrations? 

I don't like the goggles. Too goofy for my taste. And I have no goggled heads. 

The weapon choice is sub-optimal for a kill team. 

Those are the bits I had.

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.
