    Wow, that's good. Your on a streak Tauer. Is it just me or have you guys notice that those RED EYES make a big difference on these orcs. I think it makes them look scarier, the way they should look.

    Tauer, I found something that might give you some ideals. If you have the Tides of Darkness book by Aaron Rosenberg, look on the last paragraph of page 345. It gives a nice description of some orcs.

    Are you going to release all these grunt models in a single pack when your finished?

    The Orcs described on page 345, I believe are the Burning Blade clan. It doesn't say, I just assume because I read from the Wowwiki that the Burning Blade clan was saved for the last battle of the 2nd war. This was because they were very skilled warriors yet too difficult to control because of their bloodlust, so they were only to be unleased in the Hordes most dire circumstances. Maybe you should do them next.Burning Blade clan - WoWWiki - Your guide to the World of Warcraft

    Alright, I'm making Burning Blade Grunt next. After that I might make Blackhand.
    I'm trying to base it off this description from the novel Tides Of Darkness:

    "They were orcs, but orcs like he had never seen. These were massive creatures, with thick arms and stout legs, and their hair was worn in spikes that rose above them like bird crests or horse manes. The orcs had no armor, wearing only loincloths, shoulderpads and furry boots, and wielded their weapons with mad abandon, hacking and stabbing everything within their reach. Their green skin was heavily tattooed, and most of them had jagged bits of metal or small bits of what look like bone shoved through ears, noses, brows, lips and even nipples. They were savages, and the men were falling back before their frothing attack."

    As JimBob said, it's likely that these are the Burning Blade Clan. Any suggestions? What should I include from the description and what shouldn't I?
    I'm thinking that I'll give them a burning blade :p

    That does sound like orcs from the burning blade clan if you ask me. Can't wait to see it.

    I don't really like the hammer on the Blackrock Grunt. It's way too big. An axe would fit better, in my opinion.

    The Shattered Hand orc looks original! Good job.

    Yeah, that's what I originally planned but turns out that the preferred weapon in the Blackrock Clan is actually a hammer.

    Hehe, thanks ;)

    Here's a link to Pheonix-IV's model pack. Don't know if the links still work though.

    Perhaps. It depends on if I can make it stand out as a Laughing Skull, if you know what I mean.

    Laughing skull is quite a random and quite a minor clan. I think most people would prefer grunts for the "bigger" clans.

    Exactly. I think it would be fine to use normal grunts for Laughing Skulls.

    Yes, I agree on that one, Tauer.
    Anyways, so far you've done:
    *Blackrock
    *Warsong
    *Shattered Hand
    And you are currently doing Burning Blade.
    The only one(s) I think that would really be useful after that would be Frostwolf, Twilight's hammer, Bleeding Hollow and Shadowmoon, quite a few actually. :p

    Stormreaver clan (Gul'Dan's original clan) is also pretty cool.


    A really outstanding dragonmaw grunt would be nice, but i know there are a skin for one already. Dragonmaw would still be great, they were once strong enough to keep alextraza captured.

    Actually Gul'Dan was originally a part of the Shadowmoon Clan I believe. He made the Stormreaver Clan to protect himself from Doomhammer after he seized control of the Horde and killed his Shadow Council.

    I'm not sure I'll make grunts for Shadowmoon or Stormreaver. Might make some kind of Warlock or Shaman units for them though.
