Orc Archers are not exactly the toxophilites whom Ascham had in mind when he wrote his book. Their 5+ does not make them so attractive although they are cheap. Even cheaper are their cousins, the Orc Trackers. The later, on the contrary, have a 4+, so they provide a rare source of accurate archery among the Orcs. It is not neccessary to buy the original Orc Trackers miniatures, they are expensive indeed, you can just agree with your opponent that all the Orc archers he sees on the table are trackers. In few words, a player can have 14 archers with just 70 points, and this makes it the ideal warband for an evil army. Below you can see my Orc archers, some are converted from various warriors such as Minas Tirith, Corsairs, Rohirrims, etc.
Orc Archers as Trackers.
The converted archers.
The archer in the middle is one of my favorite.
The same feelings for the middle one.
The original archers, plastic and metallic.
That's it for today. I know it has been a while since my last post, but stay tuned, the box is almost ready.
