PTS 50 + Orc Warlord Grunash + Wargaming Terrain

Forever Young.
Painting Table Saturday turns 50! Something old, something new. My wife and I celebrated 15 years of marriage this week, so there was really no time for painting.

Here is the mighty Orc Warlord, Grunash. He's featured in my D&D Blackhawk campaign and is a rather large fellow, converted from a 40k Black Ork which I bought with missing arms. It was an online auction purchase and I didn't realise it wasn't ordinary orc-size until it arrived in the mail. I have photos of the conversion and will post them when/if I find them. See if you can guess what he's made of.

Otherwise, there has been a quick flick of the brush on a handful of miniatures on the painting table. A couple of pre-slotta base Citadel Chaos Warriors are almost finished and my herd of beastmen is growing.

Inspired by +Chaos Convergence there is also some terrain construction going on. I hope to have some complete by next week.

God bless you and have a great week!


  1. Congratulations with your 15th anniversary !
    Great orc miniature ! But poor poor Dwarf ... :)
    Great job so far on the other miniatures !

    1. Thanks Mario! Time flies when you're having fun.

      Alas, another dead dwarf from the settlement of Karak Grom. Perhaps a cousin of Godri Thunderbrand? The shield on Grunash's back is a wagon wheel from Bugman's cart.

  2. Congratulations on your anniversary!

  3. Well done to the both of you (from the happily unmarried guy)
    Nice conversion and paintjob. Two arms from a WH orc regiment boxset. A plastic wheel as a shield. A Dwarf head, from somewhere else.
    Cheers for the link. Some useful and inspiring posts.

    1. Thanks Roy. The hands and weapons are from a 40k ork sprue, while the arms were off a D&D boardgame troll. They look suitably wiry for his bulk, unlike the steroid junkie arms he would've come with originally.

    2. Oh, the wagon wheel is metal, from an original Bugman's cart. The head came from the Battle of Skull Pass boxset.

  4. Nice looking orc, I'm also really liking the beastmen that have been coming across the paint table. Intrigued by the terrain project as well.

  5. Happy belated anniversary! ;)
    Great orc ... he seems to have a bit of frosting around his mouth; had he been snacking on your anniversary cake? ;p

    1. Thanks Rom! I think he must've scoffed the whole cake!
