The miniatures were collected and painted while I lived and worked in Swansea - that's over twenty-eight years ago. Boy does that make me feel old! The majority are pre-slotta base Games Workshop and feature the Orc Regiment of renown RR5 Harboth and the Black Mountain Boys. Most of these miniatures were purchased via Games Workshop mail order - remember the Mail Order Trolls?
Of note is the way in which the figures were painted - in most cases the chainmail is bare metal washed with Citadel inks before being varnished with artists fixative. The bases are card (which is now showing it's age) with Pollyfilla groundwork and broken cork boulders. The vegetation is dried flowers.
As was usual back then, each regiment featured troops of one style of casting with a different standard bearer, leader and in some cases a musician. I have used Milliput as the conversion material and paper for the banners. The shield device - a white quartered moon over a red background was further defined with a black drawing pen.
I never got around to naming the Army and each regiment was just marked with a simple Reg 1, Reg 2 etc. on the underside of the bases. Seeing the recent Orctober Fest post on Steve Blease's Blog prompted me to clean the figures up and photograph them on my gaming board.
I hope that you enjoy seeing them.
