Yes, I'm doing a new, completely separate, Orc & Goblin army. Why? Why not? Actually like all my other true themed armies,
this started with an idea that just wouldn't stop. A while back (well over a year), one of the people that comes from Indianapolis
to the tournaments around here (and kicks my butt, at modelling, painting and playing) was posting on our local gaming forum asking
for conversion ideas for his squig hopper unit for a pirate themed O&G army. The one that I had that stuck with me was sharks, and
the image of goblins "jumping the shark" just wouldn't leave, and suddenly I had ideas for all sorts of units (crab riders, surfers,
orcs on jet skis, etc).
I don't think he went with my idea, and so I started working very slowly - cutting up spiders and making crabs. I knew the new 8th
edition of the game was coming out, and with it a new army book, and I didn't want to model myself into a corner (as it were) with
the changes that could be coming.
The new book came out, and along with it plastic savage orcs (which I had already decided to use) making it much easier and cheaper
to get the army, so it was time to seriously get started with it.
