After giving my Mighty Armies Orcs to Personal logo Editor Julia The Editor of TMP, I am beginning to rebuild my forces. grin

Orc Hordes

Orcs

These are the Orc warriors from the Rebel Minis Orc Army Box Set.

Orcs

These were painted for TMP by Fernando Enterprises in Sri Lanka.

Orcs

I've decided to go with three-figures-per-base for this army (the "new style" Mighty Armies basing), but since this is a Horde, I've kept this troop type at four figures per base.

Orcs

I used the solid plastic Mighty Armies bases for these figures.

Orcs

Underneath is Litko FlexSteel, so that the bases will 'stick' to magnet-lined storage boxes.

Orc Trebuchet

Orc Trebuchet

But I'm going to need a taller storage box, now that I have the Orc Trebuchet!

Orc Trebuchet

The Orc Trebuchet is part of the Mighty Armies line, but it sold separately from the Orc Army Boxed Set.

Orc Trebuchet

Rebel Minis currently lists this model as "out of stock," but I suspect he can get more if he suddenly gets a lot of requests for it. grin

Orc Trebuchet

The trebuchet itself consists of four parts: base, two sets of vertical poles, and the trebuchet arm. The fit is loose, and I used some filler and gap-filling superglue to make it go together better.

Orc Trebuchet

There are also three crew figures: an Orc with a whip, a Goblin carrying a rock, and a Goblin at the firing lever.

Orc Trebuchet

The trebuchet and crew barely fit on the 'large' size base for Mighty Armies.

Orc Trebuchet

The model was painted by Fernando Enterprises, then I assembled and based it.

Orc Trebuchet

I chose to build the model with the arm all the way down, as I thought the model would be more robust that way. However, that means the counterweight slants a bit.
