Are you ready for the ravaging horde?

This minis set contains over 150 orc miniatures for your roleplaying game. Every base class from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game has a miniature (and a few prestige classes as well). Favored orc mounts, such as the fearsome warbeast, dire bear, and wyvern are included, as well as dreaded orc slavers and tribes for every terrain orcs are known to be found. Easily mark the various tribes with war banners featuring some of the more infamous clans of Golarion: Dead Eye, Empty Hand, and Skull Eaters. With this set, you'll never worry about having enough orc miniatures for your game (and you'll have plenty of choices for your lead orc)!

A solid and diverse set.

5/5

Long story short, this is an excellent set that most likely WILL have an appropriate miniature for whatever orc or half-orc character concept a player or GM may have.

Rather than simply going with just the expected themes and stereotypes(which are still well represented), there is at least one(and most often two) miniature for each Base and NPC class in the game, as well as some for many of the prestige classes. There are also separate ranges of orcs by region. This wide range coupled with how many of them are appropriate for roles outside their given name mean it's highly unlikely one can't find at least one miniature appropriate for their character.

It should be noted that this product really shines in supporting concepts outside the stereotypical "norm". People who want to play orc paladins or wizards will absolutely not be left hanging with this one. The all-inclusive approach taken here really pays off.

Art is subjective and the "cartoony" style may not be for everyone. However it does work to make such miniatures distinctive and easy to "read" at such a small size. The cover image is indicative of the style throughout the product. Of particular note are the Holy Vindicator and the Wingripper Eidolon, both of which would make for great metal mini designs on their own.

This product sets a high standard for any future entries in this line and any other paper miniature lines to follow. In terms of variety and support for the wide spectrum of possibilities players typically fall into, this is an excellent example of "doing it right".


ICorrection: They ARE Golarion Orcs. And they fit the design.

5/5

OK, I love paper Minis, and this IS worth the $$$

But to me, the orcs look tall and gangly. I picture orcs as much more muscular...less like an olympic swimmer and more likean NFL Linebacker or one of the gorillas from Jersey Shore (and only slightly better mannered).

HOWEVER: After re-reading Orcs of Golarian, I can see that Callous Jack matched the physique of Golarian Orcs very, very well.

So, I added another Star. For Pathfinder, these fit the Golarian Orcs.

I still like the sheer variety, but a few more bulky, musclebound orcs would have been better.

But, get this today, because there are TONS of cool orc variants and you get a serious horde of mooks for your heroes to beat up.


Everything you could possibly need for ORCS!!!

5/5

What a great surprise! I love what pathfinder has done for Goblins, and we have definitely covered them in a variety of great mini sets, but the Orc really hasn't had the respect they deserve. I love using them. They're smart enough to be as effective as any human or dwarven army. And the different classes you'll find in here are great. Orc Ninja? Check. Orc Shadowdancer? Check. And a special shout out to the Orc Duelist and the Rockin' Bard!

I'm assuming this was Jack's art work, but I could be wrong. I couldn't find an artist listed. I'll just say I really like whoever did this and it would go very well with the Rise of the Runelord Set. Great work again! Can't wait for the next one.

Just so you know, the spoiler in the description really sells it. As soon as I saw "paladin" in the mix you had my money. :)

Indeed it does...that was the plan. :D


It seems like in the past people have expressed interest in paper minis for PC's. I know I would buy them. I think that the format that Jack created is so awesome. Two versions of all the core, NPC, and base classes, one for prestige classes, and a few named characters from the setting. Additional versions of location specific orcs like Plains or Desert. Added to that typical animal companions and eidolons. Sir, you've set the bar high.

Creating the Elves/Dwarves/Etc. of Golarion makes perfect sense. But I was thinking how you could do this with the Inner Sea Guide. Typical characters from Galt or Qadira. With what fifty different settings, you could continue to make sets for a long time. And I really think people would appreciate the effort and energy.

Regardless, if nothing else I have an awesome Hold of Belkzen game just waiting to be created.

That would rock! Nothing helps with a game than having a coherent look to the NPCs mins. Like an Arabian Knights look for Qadira mins, also there always seems to be a lack of nonstandard looking PC mins. +2

No problem but out of curiosity, what were you looking for? Something closer to the orcs in Warhammer maybe?

Well, like Liz said, hopefully the set is successful and we'll have that chance to expand into other races! I think it would be great todraw some humans and see Chelaxians, Taldorans, Qadirans and all the rest done!

I'd like to know what race/culture would be at the top of the list for those interested?

Dawwww... shucks. Thanks guys!


Hmm, you asked which races/cultures would be at the top of the list. I suppose the first thing to look at is what is needed for future Adventures: Paths or Modules. So a Shackles or a Dragon Empire set sounds like a good idea.

But in general I'd think starting with the race books (both the core ones and the new Ultimate Races) and then moving to the Human race options in the Inner Sea Guide (Chelaxians, Garmundi, Etc.) And then after all those have been done, you could think about the unique locations like the Mana Wastes, Nidal, or Numeria. Those locations would be a lot of fun, but I'm not sure how often they would get used.

Another option could be to throw in some of the unique locations every so often just to spice things up. After all, who isn't interested in Numeria Technic League Fighters?

And to throw out another cool idea: Clerics and Worshipers. Cool looking clerics specific to a God with additional classes that make sense. For example Desna could have a bunch of Clerics with Star-Knives, Bards, Varisian Merchants, etc. I suppose it could be broken up in the Faiths of Purity/Balance books. I think something like that would be great.

My first priority is the Adventure Path sets, but I want to give artists a break after they have finished a set, and the races sets are a good break (and also generic enough for GMs not running an Adventure Path to use).

I have a couple of different sets in mind besides races and APs, but I am always curious to hear what other people are interested in seeing—any discussions on that note should probably be moved to here though, instead of in this thread.

Thanks for the review, Mikaze! The Wingripper Eidolon was one of my favorites too! I think it was the last mini I painted.

SOmething like that...or the old Grenadier Orcs. Big, Wide, muscles, underbite, that sort of thing is classic orcs for me. Yours also look good, and not all orcs are powerhouses.

But to me, orcs are big and take up space....

I understand, I think a lot of people see orcs that way. From the art direction for the set, Paizo seems to see them more like the theatrical LotR orcs which are leaner and less... bulky.

Which Grenadier orcs do you mean? Do you have a link? :)

Pathfinder Paper Minis are a licensed product (so not produced by Paizo), and the Pathfinder Advantage does not apply to them.


What kind of mini format does Callous Jack use? From what I have seen of the teasers, the minis are encompassed in a square frame, typically a mid shot. Is that how they all show up on the print pages, or is it more like Ashton Perry's and Crystal Fraiser's where its a full shot on a mirror column with half circle bases?

By the way, what color are the bases? White, black, or the Forest hex scheme on the cover?

All of the minis are full body, just like Ashton's and Crystal's. The base colors vary depending on the mini's environment: some are cobblestones, others are grassy, etc.

Well, I still like your artwork, so I'm not trying to beat up your orcs too much. It is a worthwhile set to get.

But, since you asked, the 940's orcs here: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Fantasy_Wa rriors_-_Blister_Packs#949

were some of my iconic orcs back in the dark days of D&D between 1st and 3rd ed, when GURPS, WHFRP, and MERP took over our fantasy RPG time...

OK, I recently re-read Orcs of Golarian and I can see that your Orcs here match the artwork and style of OOG very well.

Soooo...

I went back and changed my review. For Golarion Orcs, these ARE a perfect match.

(And I have other paper orcs if I want really bulky ones to go along with the Golarion model).

So, keep 'em coming!

First of all let me thank you for this set! I used them in our Carrion Crown game for a "random" encounter. Okay I really wanted to have some orcs appear in this campaign. Then was your set released and I was so grateful! I let a player role the two dice from the random encounter table from Trial of the Beast then we built the 13 minis together. I had a long list of my favorite minis from the set, so finding 13 was not that hard!

The orcs attacked in the blood red light of the dying sun from the west, they came from the Hold of Belkzen.

BTW The banners are great! Of course I had to use them!!

Very cool, I'm happy to hear a bunch of the orcs got used! My favorite one is the one you have and front and center in the pic.

I picked this pack of paper miniatures up last week not really sure if I was actually going to be needing any Orcs for a homebrew that I was running on Friday evening. Turns out I ended up not including any dungeon-dwelling Orcs but after looking through the PC-oriented Orcs I immediately changed three NPC characters into Orcs!

They went from being three probably non-descript NPCs to suddenly being the "Green Guys" in the corner of the bar. The paper minis worked out perfectly.

Also loved the various tribes of Orcs - plains, mountain, etc. This led me to introduce plains and woodland Goblins into the brand new campaign setting.

Can't wait for my players to run into their first horde of Orcs!

Thank you for sharing your thought, MJinthePitt!

I'm glad the minis are working out for you. :) If you do use a horde, I hope to see pics!


Great artwork Jack! I haven't had a chance to use the PC-geared minis yet, and only a handful of the horde-themed ones so far, but I've loved the non-orc creatures and monsters included, they add a great amount of versatility to the already varied set of orcs in the set.

I encountered an issue with the page of "Slaver Orcs" (page 12, with the fighter and biter dogs). The semicircular bases line up perfectly, so I don't think it was a printing or folding error, but the actual mirrored orc images are laterally misaligned, they don't overlap like they ought to. It hasn't happened on any of the other pages I've printed, but it might be worth looking into and correcting (if I'm right, that is).

Other than that, it's a great set and an otherwise-happy purchase, thanks for creating it!
