Today’s Orcy Update is Big Dave. For my purposes he will be a Kings of War Krudger (an Orc Champion). I have had the figure for a long time (like maybe ten years but I honestly cannot remember) and only painted him in the last few days. He comes from the Frothers Unite-UK range of sometimes available figures. He is a great sculpt and I am glad I brought him, whenever that was. He is, at least according to the FU!UK ‘store’ still available from Frothers for £4 including postage anywhere in the world which is a pretty good bargain.
He has the traditional Orcy look favoured by sculptors since the cartoony look was popularised by (and I am guessing here) Games Workshop back in the 90s. However, he has a more gritty visage than the GW variants and I would have loved to see the sculptor who made him actually do a range of orcs.
He was a two part figure. The humongous axe and hands were a separate piece to the rest of the mini. As I am wont to do I drilled and pinned his hands before gluing together. He is armoured in an impressive boiler-suit of armour that, as far as I can see, has no way into or out of it. That may be why Big Dave scowls so much.
