After being skewered and then trampled down by Chico’s Death Riders in last week’s battle, I decided that my Orcs need some cavalry of their own.
The Greedy Maw tribe is the ruling elite in my horde, and I’ll be working on a second mob of Orcs (from the Split Tongue) so I can promote the Greedy Maw infantry to Big Uns.
The cavalry mob will be Snortas, +1 shock elite cavalry, and therefore should also stem from the ruling tribe. There are one or two Orc Boar Riders with scale armour in the Marauder range, but I don’t have any of them anyway at the moment, so the majority of the unit will consist of converted MB2 models.
The first of these I finished painting today, and I am very happy with the result.
Working on the war boar from the old Citadel range was particularly fun, I just love their grumpy, mean spirited expressions.
