Now this is an orc I can get on board with! Forget all those orcs with their spiked belly plates and slippers, and that one orc called a "hero" because he wields a big blade in two hands...Kavorgh is the real deal, a big orc that's such a badass he nails the hands of his opponents to his shield. Mind you, you'd think Kavorgh would have a cooler name like, "Kavorgh the Handtaker" or "Kavorgh, Wristsplitter" or "KavooorAAARGH!" But the title of Warlord will have to do.
Bobby Jackson's sculpt holds an axe in one hand that's nearly the size of his body. His armor is a combination of leather, a chain hauberk, a wolf pelt, and metal scale plates. The body parts on his shield are suitably gross -- arms, wrists, bits of flesh, and probably a forearm bone. I painted Kavorgh's "collectibles" on his shield different colors (Kavorgh believes in murderous diversity).
An excellent sculpt for an orc leader. You can purchase this miniature at Noble Knight Games.
