Orcs and Goblins

Games Workshop Orcs are very specific, but also well-known enough to have many models and whole ranges made in exactly the same style. Gamezone has a range of models intended exactly for Warhammer units and Mantic has both Orcs and Goblins as separate ranges and that is only the tip of the iceberg. The greatest problem was the doom diver as the strangest thing the army has.

A few comments first:
  • The models listed here are not perfect and many are not on the same level as the original ones (those are usually way older than the current GW range). I am not saying losing GW models won't be a pity, if anything this work is making me appreciate them even more. I am just saying that a solution exists. The important part is, the models are out there.
  • This is not only my work. I have used ideas and suggestions from various places and am very grateful for the collective wisdom of the internet communities.
  • In many cases I was unsure about the size of the models and was forced to go on guesswork only. I hope at least some of them will work.
  • When possible, I have tried to link to groups of models and larger units, if only to show multiple sculpts at once. Most of the companies sell the individual models as well, should that be preferred.
  • I am quite a chaotic person and may have overlooked something awesome. I usually try to link sites that offer greater number of useful models or the ones I know I have not exhausted, but searching around the linked models might yield even more fruit.
  • If you know about something useful not linked here, please let me know and I will add it. This is by no means an exhaustive list and can never be, but I would like to list as many possibilities as possible.
