Our grandsons are very keen on Games Workshop's "Lord of the Rings - Strategy Battle Game" and "The Hobbit". We were given a lot of Orcs by their uncle and while we were watching one of their favourite cartoon shows Callum said that the flag would look good on some orcs. So we thought about a force based on the TV cartoon. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horrid_Henry

The boys (Callum is 10 and Aiden is 7) have been painting figures for a while and are improving. Sometimes their efforts are as good as mine! Doing the conversions is still closely supervised. I just have to help with touching up, some details, characters and details. The boys have not yet mastered painting on eyes. We did have an odd experience when the varnish spray went gritty and covered the figures with a sort of grey powder. I might have to do a repaint job.

We converted Orridenri on foot and mounted on a warg. The boys did most of the painting. The entire army uses mainly blues, yellows and purples (except the shaman who has green armour because Aiden liked the colour!)
Orridenri – War Leader

Orridenri is a violently aggressive, self-centred, haughty Uruk Hai who has issues with authority who will typically be faced with a problem and then will often retaliate in interesting ways that involve trickery, rule-breaking and elaborate cunning plans. As a result he is usually stationed on the north western boundaries of Mordor – Dagorlad, Dead Marshes, Nindalf and raiding into Wilderland, Mirkwood, Gondor, Rohan and as far north as the Iron Hills - so has almost constantly been in action against Men, Elves or Dwarves. His warriors are well equipped with captured weapons and armour.

Then we added a shaman, a horn blower, a banner and some bodyguards. We are going to add a drummer later.

And the Warg Riders and Wild Wargs

We will probably add a drummer, maybe a ballista or two and some scouts though the big gap are the girls in the cartoon - Moody Margaret and Sour Susan. Female orcs required and ideas welcome. I am also working on special rules and profiles.
