Do I have enough half-orc figures?  There are a few I still need to paint, but most of them are here.

Several Ral Partha sculpts by Tom Meier, I assume. An archer:

A fighter:

An Aztec-looking shaman:

A thug, rogue, or thief:

An assassin:

A “Ral Partha Import” in the US; actually a Citadel figure and sold in Citadel’s AD&D line in the UK, the “Grim half-orc adventurer”:

Some later Grenadier half-orcs. Julie Guthrie?  The guy with two short swords was probably sold as an orc.

A Grenadier AD&D fighter from an “Action Art” type set; his axe broke off so I replaced it later with a massive scimitar.

Two orphan figures: a Chainmail half-orc and a Rafm mulit-part assemble your own adventurer kit: half-orc.  The only two half-orcs either company made.

A Grenadier goblin hero, actually, but usually used as a half-orc ranger or fighter.

A Citadel Chaos Warrior, but that face screams half-orc.  A badass fighter or fighter/cleric.

A Reaper half-orc rogue or assassin.  Used him as Big Swifty, my last 4e character.

A Reaper orc fighter, but also used for a half-orc.  Not sure what I was on when I painted the eyes:

  1. Citadel Chaos Warrior looks like latter day Micheal Jackson.

    The Reaper half-orc rogue or assassin is the awesomist. Great pose, great leggins, great hood & cloak, great tusks

    • Thanks! The Reaper assassin is definitely a great sculpt, and I’m happy with how he turned out.

      And thanks a lot for forever ruining the warrior for me. But you’re right, he does. But I painted him back around 88 or 89!

  2. […] Monaco continues a series of posts featuring armies great and small. Here’s some Half-Orcs. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see one picture of ALL of them spread out on a […]
