Orcs for Kings of war

 I've been chipping away at a new army for Kings of War, based on using the Frostgrave Gnolls as the bulk of my infantry. As usual I've an eclectic range of figures co-opted into the army- Frostgrave, Northstar, GW and Mantic. 

The characters at the front are some of the character figures from the new Oathnmark orc range and are lovely, very Middle Earth inspired, orcs IMO.

LoTR Orc scouts are being used as Ax infantry and the Frostgrave Gnolls behind are Morax- berserker orcs. 

The Mantic Winged Slasher moel in the background is a lovely model too and makes a great centrepiece for the army, while the Mantic Gore Riders provide a fast, hard hitting cavalry contingent. 

And finally, a shot of the first of the thre regiments of Morax I've painted up. I really love the Frostgrrave Gnolls and with all plasctis are ripe for conversions. For this army I've been adding weapons and arms from the Mantic Goblins as well as the Oathmark Goblins and Orcs to make the army even more varied.

I've not had much success with them so far but reckon 5 games over two days at No Surrender in Christchurch later in the month will be a good opportunity to get to grips with the army.
