28mm Foundry War Orc Queen...dedicated to Anne.

Anne (you know who I'm talking about) commented that she's interested in foundry's War Orc figures at the moment and I said that I thought I still had some from when Dave Thomas sold a load of at a SELWG many, many years ago and she said she wanted to see pictures so........This big bitch is listed as a mad Ogress Queen from Foundry and she is big, she was painted quite a long time ago and today maybe I would have painted her differently but that doesn't matter now.....you can name her Anne if you want and her followers will be posted as well.

I've always liked a little fantasy figure here and there...........especially a well sculpted or quirky piece, you should see all the Games Workshop plastic chaos warriors and skeletons I have.

I feel the call of some fantasy figures..........maybe!




One of her loyal warriors.......

  2. Jaysus! Looks just like me the morning after a mad bender! Oh that hair hahahaha.

    She is a really cool figure Fran and you did a fabulous job of painting her up. Those heads hanging off her are great.

    Christ, I will never live this shite down :)

  3. That is fantastic and very very cool. Love the colors. Anne, you look amazing, and no, I doubt you will live this down.

    But that's a good thing.

  4. Now I can clearly tell this is always about having a nipple to the air! Nice one.

  5. Excellent paint and fig. But I could swear one of those heads looks suspiciously like Ray.

  6. Nice to see something different!

  8. She is scary!! The collection of severed heads is particularly frightening!

  9. A very unusual miniature. But never the less a nice piece and a great paintjob.

    Well done, Fran!

    Cheers

  11. So, Fran, is that really how you see Anne? ;)

    Lovely painting

    ReplyDelete
  12. Now Fran, while I think doing homage to a beautiful lady proves that chivalry is not yet dead, to insinuate Anne is anywhere near as lovely as this creature of yours is preposterous! She is far MORE lovely... so nice figure; very nice gesture but try to do the lady a bit more honour next time eh ;-) oh and :-P

    Cheers Sander

  13. Lovely paintjob, the look, especially the twinkle in in her eyes, reminds me of some of the 'ladies' down Walsall town centre on a Saturday night (including the trophy heads).

    Regards,

  14. That is one mighty looking figure. I've seen some fantasy figures and they do look amazing when done right.

  15. If Anne looks like that, then you are really in big trouble, Fran.

    4. Anne send him down the water slide also... send them all down... hahaha I wonder who screams more (I would go down first but someone has to push these 2 down

    5. But she has blonde hair and you said-you can name her Anne. Oooops, did you mean "Anne, you can name her"

      I have to ponder this one for a while before I decide which of you two to believe :)

  16. Well this is certainly something I never expected to see - Fran painting fantasy figures. You've done a great job on her.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like what you did with that figure and love the belt'eads!

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL I knew her picture was fake. Thanks for outing here and showing the world her true self, now I'd watch your back haha

    ReplyDelete
  19. What, at least she knows how to dress with style! :D

  20. Love this fig, love the pair, love the paint. Kudos as usual Fran. Rock on.

  21. 'Morning, Supreme General. I'm sorry you have been having bad dreams lately.

    ReplyDelete
  22. She is a nasty peice of work, and the little heads... just ghastly, hehehe well done.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Very nice Fran, I want to adopt one of those creatures, so cute!

  24. Great job! Follow the call of the fantasy figures...follow the call of the fantasy figures...

  25. Nothing to do with Anne !
    I assume that only Anne I'm knowing is an Irish Elvish woman called "Gal'Anne O'Driel": I've meeted her and I've done pictures too ! (search on my blog!)

    (and all the guys who say here that it's a great work, etc.... are bl***** liars !)

  26. that looks nothing like our dear Annzie.... well, maybe, after her visit to our Shenanigans Pub :)

  27. No it can't be our lovely Annie - given the nipple slip she is more like an Ogrish Janet Jackson - c'mon Fran, you can do an Ogre Justin Timberlake ogling at the wayward ogre mam!

    Cheers,
    Doc

  28. I like them both. A lot of character on the Orc Queen, the severed heads are a nice touch. I think that there should be more Angry Fantasy in the near future.

  29. I gather she is short on patience. Well done Fran!

  30. Nice figures Fran, although you may need a 4 leaf clover to get out of the shit! now Annes' on the case

    ReplyDelete
  31. A very nice figure, Ray. This range of models is really interesting; I like a lot the "landsknecht" orcs. Fantastic!

  32. Oh, Anne, have some self-respect. Put that back in your shirt.
    And don't sit on those heads. They bite.
