The Nick Lund Hobgoblin and the Centurion became firm friends whilst stuck on the painting lolly stick together, It made sense that they were based next to each other.
They marched as if a great black river had descended from the mountains and wolves were in their van.
My guide for this Gundabad army was to use orcs that mirror the style that Angus McBride developed when illustrating the MERP rules in the eighties. A lot of figure companies have copied his style when making a range of orcs. My collection above are just a few, I'm sure I could find more if I looked. It's great for tying the army together with a general look and theme.
Above are orcs from Warlord games, Icon lotr orcs (now available from Forlorn Hope). Mark Copplestone Half-orcs too make great Gundabad orcs and bring some nasty looking swords to the spear units.
The beserkers are mostly Reaper Bones and a few metal ones too.

Robin was using the gel to base up his 15mm sci-fi figures. I will see how I get on with it, so far so good. These large 80mmx60mm bases have a lot of wide open flat space to fill and this gel could be the ticket.

Below is reference that got me thinking about the whole thing in the first place. I fell in love with the look of these units on the Warfare miniatures web site. The League of Augsburg stuff is very inspiring, worth a look just for the eye candy.
