For the Guilds of Historica, Eurobricks exclusive
It is my pleasure to bring to you and share with our community on this very exclusive insight review especially since this is a very rare opportunity for myself to acquire these limited edition which is meant for one-off production. These customised orcs printed LEGO minifigures' heads designs are exclusively produced for the Eurobricks Guilds of Historica as part of the ongoing epic medieval building competition and these heads are part of the legendary prize pool which was offered by the Guild Leaders. These wonderful designs are created by our Eurobricks Staff, Brickthing. Just want to say, that your designs are outstanding.
For the above 'boss orc' and 'female orc' designs, these designs are produced by one of the leading printed customised vendor known as the Citizen Brick. It is a collaboration between both Eurobricks Guild Leaders and Citizen Brick to embark on this very high quality project which took about 6 months to complete the entire reviewing and production process. If you are interested to do your own commissioning, I believed you are most welcomed to drop your questions and project details thru their custom printing enquiry form. Do note that production of these high quality prints are exceptionally costly but it is very much worth the money that you had put in, to pay for such top quality. I have extracted their information on their site, which is written by the founder, Joe Trupia.

These are the new powerful and advanced Orc units
I had always fond of customised elements since in my opinion, it is meant to complement the LEGO experience and these very printed elements had definitely lived up to its remarkable standard. The quality of the decals are printed and you could hardly see any differences with the real LEGO stuff. Recently, I had shown these minifigures head designs in these customised minifigures outfits below to a local fan gathering in Singapore last month and they could hardly identify the differences, assuming it like the regular LEGO orcs with their own original different variations coupled with various customised vendors' parts. They did not notice that the expressions on the prints are unique and be rest assured that these heads will not be for sale. At least, this is what I last heard from them.
Without further ado, let me present my mighty new powerful advanced orc units that will shake medieval reclaim with terror. I will also assemble some of my customised elements that I owned from my BrickArms, BrickForge and BrickWarriors collection.
Meet the tactical Orc General
The brain behind the mighty orc legions, is this crafty tactical Orc General. He looks real mean and nasty. Equipping himself with his full armour outfit to protect his flesh and carrying his priced weapon, known as the 'dadao' (BrickArms). I will have to warn anyone who approaches him to beware of his sharp and pointy blade!
Meet the charming Orc Mage
Although she may not be the most prettiest mage around this region, but this charming and beautiful looking mage in her own rights and class, served to be equally deadly in the orc legions. Supporting the armies from behind, her trusty 'wizard staff' (BrickForge) will bless the fighting force and blast the enemies apart.
Meet the nasty looking Orc Berserker
While, this Orc Berserker may not be the most friendliest guy around these parts but don't you ever despite him even though he don't carry any special kind of weapons. These new issued weapons from the Uruk-Hais production are strong and sturdy, more importantly it is extremely easy to wield to bring down incoming charging enemies.
Orc Beserker is ready to charge the front
With just a helmet on, this fellow is ready for close combat encounter!
Our female Orc Sniper
This orc sniper is not just like any other regular archer. She is able to snipe her enemies from far and at the same time, giving her adequate lightweight protection from close attacks with her 'horned plate armour' (BrickWarriors).
These new faces fit nicely among the veterans
Don't you agree that these new customised orc designs fit nicely with the regular orc solders?
Dangers and risks are nothing to them
The human alliance against the mighty orcs
To conclude, I am extremely impressed with the quality of the Citizen Brick's printing even though printing for such high quality does not come cheap. In fact, I had never seen any of their finished products before. It was thru the Eurobricks Guild Leaders, where I am one of the fortunate few to be given such a chance to see these finished products and having it to be part of my personal collection to increase the variations in my orc armies. Too bad, I don't have any chance to acquire these and I had to settled with my four precious limited customised orc heads.
