SLAP Miniatures have just launched their Kickstarter for "Space Dorks".
I've backed their previous campaigns (also available as part of this one), and have been impressed by the quality of the sculpts.
Have a look on this link .

I absolutely HATE the entire concept of Space Orks … but I love these guys.

And I TOTALLY LOVE the Mutilator!

Plus … Bangerz? FTFW

Very tempted … bookmarked for next week (when I might be able to afford more than a packet of Space Raiders …)

WOW. Finally someone makes some that look more simian and less cartoon-like!!!

They could even work for a Tolkien in Space game. :)

I do not like Space Orcs, but these do look cool!

I have their GDF, some comparison shots on my blog. If the space orcs are sized in the same manner, they will be very small 15mm. The GDF figures are excellent, but pretty much unable to be used with other companies.

Every model is different too. Stuart is an amazing sculptor.
I'll be interviewing him for Dropship Horizon soon. If you have any questions, post them here and I'll ask him.

Darryl, the Space Knights from the kickstarter after the GDF were bigger, and came in at about 15mm to the eye.

These Dorks are similar to the Space Knights, a much better size.

They could almost pass as Imperial Janissaries! :-)

The bloke in the Gestapo hat is wonderful.

That's what I said at a party two weeks ago … I still can't sit down…

Funded already – only took 6 hours.
