My names Mike and I have a terrible dark secret...I never played Warhammer' Fantasy 3rd edition before 2012. During the halycon days of youth I was spending my precious treasure on miniatures and modules for AD&D, the closest. Sadly those miniatures were long lost as I'm sure there were citadel miniatures in those purchases. I played some of the board games including hours of Battlemasters with miniatures painted poorly with my mom's Apple Barrel craft paints.
It wasn't until 5th/6th edition I got into Warhammer and played steadily until Age of Sigmar ruined everything (in my opinion). But then back in 2012 I stumbled across some blogs extolling the models of my childhood and the 3rd edition rules. I was hooked and quite quickly got a copy of the rules from Amazon for surprisingly cheap and dove in on a project of collecting an orc and goblin army. Of course distractions arose and soon dwarves, dragons, chaos and various other "oooh I need that" models filled the shelves. I set the orcs aside and worked in a chaos forces after getting copies of the realms of chaos.books. I finished a small chaos army for oldhammer weekend in Virginia and had a great time.
I returned full of excitement and inspiration and promptly started working on endless hours of fallout 4 and skyrim and adding more lead to the pile. Finally a challenge arrived to push me to finish my giant pile of unpainted orcs and goblins, so I dug them out from all corners of my house from the had ended up after our move in the spring and began sorting them out.
There's still a few more pieces elsewhere...
Since I wanted to go orc heavy I decided to switch it up and get the 4th edition orc book and make a list from that. So after a quick Amazon order and lots of waiting... I downloaded the army list and got to work. I can up with a list of.
10 arrer boyz
5 boar boyz
2 goblin chariots
16 orc boyz with command
6 wolfriders and a goblin boss.
Now to get painting!
