Orc Throwers

Again most of the colours match with the linemen I painted earlier. One difference you might note is that the numbers are there. I finally found some numbers I was happy with, and after patiently waiting I’ve got them. I’ve gone back and added the numbers to the other finished guys, but I don’t think it’s worth pictures.


Even though I haven’t finished the core team yet (still got to do the blitzers) I’m going to use them on Monday. I won’t use them well, but hopefully having the team mostly painted keeps the dice gods happy.


Not much excitement in the colours stakes, but one addition is the ball.

  1. Hi, i really love this team. i noticed linemen and throwers are the same miniatures. do they have alternative arm with or without the ball or do i have to remove the ball myself to make a ball lesss hand?

    • You’re correct, the linemen and the throwers are the same miniatures. There are essentially 2 different bodies, 2 different right arms (1 with ball, 1 without) and 3 different heads that make up all the linemen and thrower variants. If you look at the 4 linemen they all have the same right arm. I got the two different looks on the throwers by just changing the pose on the arm.

  2. another little question : is there a metal tab present under the foot like usually to insert on the base ? notice the foot are really at the limit of the bases, is this ok ? was it easy to glue them to the bases?

    • Yes, each of them are attached to metal tabs. There is a piece of metal the comes from the tab up to the rear foot as well, but I removed this prior to painting. There were a couple of tricks to getting them on the bases (tabs too big to fit), but nothing out of the ordinary when fitting 32mm figures on 25mm bases.
