I have never really been a massive fan of feathers on helmets but recently I have come around to it. A big feather on the front takes it away from historical and into Fantasy, it also helps to tie them in with my old Grenadier High Elves. To this point I will be going back and repainting the helmets of my archers to match these armoured infantry.
Also a green paint scheme should just help to nudge it away from historical Norman just a bit and the feathers will help there too.
I’m excited for this project, but can’t forget about the 50 odd plastic Orcs I have just made. These new plastics are making it a great time to be into fantasy war gaming, your imagination can go wild with so many new options available, good times.

These are very addictive and I’m not sure how many I will have made by the time I have sated myself. I hope they will bring a little more variety into the ranks of snarling, dirty orcs.

Since I last made any orcs I have joined a wargaming in Middle-earth Facebook group, some of the figures on here have been painted very well over many hours. This can be off putting when thinking about starting your own stuff again but you must remember what works for you and stick to it. I’m very much going for the overall look of an army rather than small groups of warriors.
