Today we are checking out some Orc Character miniatures from Kromlech. We recently reviewed some of Kromlech’s Orc Squads so it will be interesting to see how their character models stand out.
The Orc Character set from Kromlech contains five orc miniatures as follows: Orc Commissar, Orc Tank Driver, Orc Field Chururgeon, Orc Pilot, Orc Officer in Greatcoat, plus five 25mm round plastic bases. The set is priced at £21.67 (US$31.96) which is a saving of almost 20% over buying the minis separately. Here you can see all the parts that come in this kit.
Here is the Orc Officer in Greatcoat model, a large and mean looking greenskin to lead your boyz. He comes in 5 resin pieces which includes a choice of 2 guns, and is available separately for £6.50 (US$9.58) if you just want this mini and not the other characters. He comes with a 25mm base.
The Orc Officer in Greatcoat is quick to assemble, and what a cool looking model it is. There is absolutely loads of detail on this miniature and everything seems to have been captured well in the resin. You can equip him with your choice of large pistol or sawn-off shotgun, and his other hand has been replaced with a gigantic power klaw. Other great details include his grizzled face (he’s wearing a monocle!), medal, and armour plate strapped to his back which has already received a couple of dents. This is an all-round fantastic model, which looks like a an excellent Ork equivalent of Commissar Yarrick for Warhammer 40k players, or just a powerful leader for any Orc force.
Here we have the Orc Pilot mini which comes in 2 resin parts along with his 25mm base. Again these parts are very highly detailed and have been cast well. This Orc Pilot is available separately for £5.05 (US$7.45) if you dont pick up the whole Orc Character Set.
On gluing the 2 parts and base together, we’re left with this great looking Orc Pilot mini. His flight suit is highly detailed with straps, buckles, and a patch for his squadron badge, and he’s well equipped with his goggles, watch, parachute backpack (this is probably full of squigs or something right?) and lots more. This would make a really nice model for use in a diorama, we can just imagine him standing in front of his Orky Spitfire.
The Orc Commissar comes as a single piece, ready to be glued to his 25mm base, and is available for £5.05 (US$7.45) for you’re buying him separately.
On gluing him to the base you can see he’s a another very characterful Orc model, he appears a lot calmer than most Orc sculpts we see …as if he’s got some tactical genius going on and everything is going according to plan. The sculpt is nicely detailed with his thick coat, medal, hat and holstered pistol at his rear.
The Orc Tank Driver is another single piece resin model, and is also available separately for £5.05 (US$7.45).
Once attached to his 25mm base, he’s a reasonably tall Orc, and is another one who is crying out to be part of a diorama or display, hopefully standing in front of an absolutely huge tank. There are some great details over his uniform, and although most of his face is good, he’s got some confusingly deep holes in his cheeks which we’re tempted to fill with some putty/green stuff.
One of our favourites, this is the Orc Field Chirurgeon. He comes in 3 resin pieces plus his 25mm base, and if you do want to purchase him separately, he can be had for £5.05 (US$7.45). This one doesn’t disappoint on the details either, especially over his tools.
Here he is after assembly, our orky medic along with all his crude tools. The Orc Field Chirurgeon comes with pliers, scissors, large blades, a mean looking saw, ready to “heal” other orcs nearby. Theres loads of detail here and we think he’d make an excallent alternative Pain Boy or Mad Doc for Warhammer 40k Ork players.
Here’s the assembled Orc Character Set in all it’s glory, each miniature has loads of character and is packed with details.
The Orc Character Set contains some lovely models which could make great alternatives for Warhammer 40k Ork players, or even just for use as part of a display/diorama. The level of detail on these is very high and each model has loads of character. The individual minis feel reasonably priced, so if you like the look of these and pick them up as a bundle at the with the savings, it’s definitely a winner!
