Honestly, I don't care if they are 'orks' or not, green pigs just look strange!

Those look great. Having seen the bare metal version, you did a great job.

I agree, more a Pork than an Orc! --nice painting though!

Nice job – shows that there's life left in those old sculpts.

Awesome and you could also uses them as Runequest Trolls

They look like the pig men a Jaba's Palace in Star Wars.

Seeing these is a nostalgia trip for sure. Growing up in Southern California, our local store had a painted set of these Orcs in the front window, and I remember staring at them practically nose to window and thinking I'd have given my right arm to own such a set! Very nice brushwork, sir!

Very cool.

In my case, I've always like this color scheme better:

It's fantasy- and makes them look more sinister. Love those minis.

I was just yesterday telling my wife (after a discussion of Disney Princess movies with our daughter) how much I loved the look of Sleeping Beauty. The orcs were awesome!

Orcs as they should be! Great work!

They were the first Orcs I ever laid eyes on and, in my mind, the only Orcs that look right, even if they didn't all look exactly the same.


Some looked like crocs, others like bats, pigs, even vultures. But, even so, they all looked like they belonged together.

Cute pink snouts.

Brings back memories! My first Minifig was a pig-faced orc. Cost me 19 new pence :)

Very nice! And now I know where the green ham comes from in that Seuss book.

They're Boarks, a brutal race of beastmen berserkers who are responsible for bad reputation of the poor long suffering orcs.

Really great paint jobs that bring out the full potential of the castings!

Capt Flash14 Oct 2018 11:08 a.m. PST

Nice work! The choice of colors is great, too! Gives the figures a nice Saturday Morning Cartoon feel! Thanks for sharing!
