Lesser Orcs of the Red Eye

As part of our Crisis 2017 game, we painted up vintage fantasy figures that were around when Warhammer 1st edition was published (1983).

We showed some Minifigs Forest Orcs before, but didn't show these "Lesser Orcs of the Red Eye" yet. They were originally released by Custom Cast in 1975, and later by Der Kriegspielers.


  1. I'm so glad you've posted this! I've never seen these fascinating models before. They're a unique step on the evolutionary journey of the orcs. They remind me a lot of the orcs from the Lord of the Rings animated movie.

    1. Indeed. We all are brainwashed by GW how Orcs and Goblins should look like, but if you look at Orcs and Goblins pre-GW (or pre-Warhammer), there's a wide variation of interpretations.
