I saw you say you'd be having another series of minifigure moc's, but I didn't expect them this quickly!  :tongue:

They're all great, especially the father Orc! As soon as i saw him I immediately said Genghis Khan!

I'm Agnostic and ambivalent about it.

Really nice work with these, The Penguin! I love the little changes like the eye shadows, arm markings, and the lipstick on the female Orc. Also, great job using the upside-down scarf piece for the hat. It's a very effective technique. The Jester is really nice too.

Nice job with these!  :thumbup:

Brilliant, Penguin!  :thumbup:

Those face and arm details are perfect! Did you paint a red and blue jester's outfit? Beautifully done.

I can't wait to see what you come up with next.  :sweet:

What a charmingly dangerous family the Greens are.  :classic:

I love the tattoos. :wub: The father looks like a baaad baaad man and the dress with scarf combination works superbly with the momma.

That orc in show biz is a brave one indeed. It took a lot of guts to tell his family of his career goals and I'm glad he's not letting anyone mess up his dreams. Especially not a piece of Crownie trash. :-D

My only suggestion would be to add a baby orc using the dwarf legs lol

Good stuff.

ORC!

Ah, Jebediahs! I was wondering what such an orc like you would say about my minifigures. ) And I'm glad and proud that you liked them. )  :sweet:

You seem to be very fond of crownies, aren't you? )  :laugh:

I love these! How did you make the faces. The oldest son, dad and mom look like modified regular orc heads. But the jongest son's head doesn't look like the regular orc head. Did you decal it or something?

My favorite is the momma orc. She looks very evil. I would suggest adding a little sister to the bunch. A very evil little sister in pink.

Oh my gosh LOL ahahahahaha ahahaha I laughed a lot when I saw that kid. He's great rofl! I've got to come back to him...

That wraith looks perfect. I've always felt the orginal skeleton head was too happy and the newer ones too "alive" with their glowing eyes for when I wanted a skull to represent a non-living/non-undead fig. The darkening of the eyes is a good idea.

Not the most attractive bunch but for humans those women look decent. Jeb doesn't descriminate because of race ;)


HahAHAHAHA memories from me youth. That kid looks great!
haha priceless. Good job, Penguin.

Loving the mage! Although I think you mixed up a Might & Magic game for a Heroes of Might & Magic game - since one is an RPG and the other is more of a strategy game. :wink:

The ladies are great as well, even though their dresses could use more variation.

Of course, I didn't mix up the two great games. I deliberately wrote HMM III, because thought it was a more recognizable name. ) I'm very glad to find another person who remembers the great MM series, milady! ) :thumbup: Those were the days! )  :cry_happy:
