Nicked it from Reddit, but think it was posted on a facebook page for GW or something

That's a nice looking model, but the Orcs are kind of dull.

What what I've seen so far they don't look that much different from the conversions you see based on standard models.

Not so impressive, here's a link for an Orc team I've made some years ago with the GW black orcs minis (mostly plastic ones):http://atemporels.fr/?page_id=436
Very easy conversions, minis on 25mm bases.

I think it looks great. Looking forward to seeing what comes out.

The mouth looks kinda strange...

And I'm really concerned about GW using more and more Cyanide graphics on their own releases... :o

They had already said that was just for the mock-up box for trade shows (whether you believe that or not is up to you :wink: ).

My main concern is that all the pics so far seem to be using 32mm bases.

But the ball on the orcs pic is also a Cyanide image... :cry:

Mabe that is hinting that 40K will also "suffer" something like Age of Sigmar...
EVERYTHING will be on 32 mm bases... Even tanks! Image

As the game isn't due until next year it's possible (or indeed, very likely) that they don't have the artwork for it yet.

I (thankfully) haven't played 40k in years, and stopped following it around 4th edition, but I thought it had already moved to 32mm bases, or is that just for some units?

The mouth looks like "more teeth! no, MORE!". From seeing other miniatures, it seems the new style is more of everything and bigger, with shapes that only make sense if you don't pay attention at all. Muscles completly stupid, deformed shapes... but BIG. Maybe they hired Rob Liefeld, maybe they all went to wide screens at last and old references got stretched.

This only confirms my suspicions that they were caught pants down and have been looking for anything to sell. They are also pushing old sprues (to "new" markets) and reimagining all kind of old games.

Why changing bases? Becoming incompatible or just a side effect of the "wider than taller"? First case backfired and quick. Laser cut bases was one day thing, resin some days to get a 3D printed or milled master... even plastic appeared fast (yes, 32, I am not mixing this with old 30). Also extensions, not just new bases, so they created a new market for others. And as GW is so stupidly priced, the small companies are viable even if they don't have economies of scale.

Looks nice, but most concerning is the 32mm base. With the standard BB squares being 29mm this probably means that a new pitch is a must have to play......

It's actually the strange lips that look forbidden to me.
May be the way of painting, though...

The whole face is just... well... unorcish if you consider all those years where you got used to the GW orcs.

Maybe because they are Orruks. :puke:
