I know there is literally no-one who cares about this, but drawing these froggy dudes really relaxes the old mind.
Thought I'd make some examples of the different subtypes of orc/goblin (western st. = often referred to as goblins, Mordor st. = orcs). Goblins are chonky, with shorter tails, smaller ears and larger horns. Orcs are usually paler or even piebald, with longer digits and shorter snouts, often being bald.
The divide between the two is basically nonexistent, though. In practice it's more like a sliding scale of traits. These two would be picked from the very extremest ends of their range.

Welcome to the official blogsite of my first epic fantasy series Record of Everwar Chronicles.
The idea came from watching The Witcher on Netflix. I created a female protagonist who didn't look like your average looking shero in an epic fantasy. She's a large woman around 230 pounds yet has a very exotic appearance due to the color of her skin. Sometimes she has braids or nubian locks in her hair, sometimes her hair gets cut short.
Her name is Helfreya Jaeger, one of the three adopted daughters of a dwarf named Rufus Jaeger. And they all live in a city that became a melting pot of races and cultures. I haven't figured out the name yet. Helfreya's two adoptive sisters are Nephtys and Chen. Nephtys is the youngest, Chen is the oldest.
I haven't figured out if I want to write Record of Everwar Chronicles as a novel or serial series yet. Until then, I will post info on certain characters without giving away too much as spoilers.
One thing for sure, there will be humor and seriousness and romance and explicit sex. I thank my muse for giving me this idea, because I was running low on mental stability.
Coming up next is profiles. Like I said, I'll do my best to keep spoilers out of the way.

The Sapient Species Part 1
I’m currently debating exactly how many sapient species I can get away with having in one verse, but here’s the first part of the species I’ve got so far:
Painted Orcs (descendants of Dire Orcs): evolving in Africa, these bois are 6-8ft on average, have skin patterns similar to African wild dogs, and tell their life story (clan, jobs, family, etc) through hair styles. They have little to no concept of gender and all of them enjoy a good sing, chant or poetry recital. They’re also the best species when it comes to medicine, particularly back pre-1900s, when they were basically the most hygienic species due to their bathing rituals
Trolls (descendants of Cave Trolls): originating from Mexico, Africa, Australia and South America, Trolls are 6ft on average and have hair running from their scalp to their tail bone in a kind of mane, the texture quite similar to fur. They have tusks sprouting from their top jaw, bottom jaw or their cheekbones. Tusk texture can be smooth (think elephant), serrated (like a knife) or thorned (aka ‘antusks’, they have small branches on, akin to antlers)
Goblins: sea-faring folk from the Caribbean region, pure Goblins are 2′5″ to 3′5″ on average (those from mixed-species descent may be taller). They have green/grey/blue skin, large pointed ears, short hair, and catlike pupils. If you want cosmetic, gender-affirming, or amputation surgeries, Goblins are the go-to species, especially in the 1700-1900s. They’re also excellent collectors and finders, 10/10 great hire for finding anything from a deer skull to Voidmatter Crystals to Poseidon’s Trident

There isn’t enough media that features big buff orc women or short stacked goblin girls.

An ultra Affordable Goblinoid army for Oathmark
An ultra Affordable Goblinoid army for Oathmark
As I’ve mentioned I’ve put some time in painting Oathmark troops lately. It’s a fun game. Per my last post I have an Oathbreaker Undead army done. I’ve started a Dwarven army. Yet, I really need a good opposition force to handy to put up against them. Not everyone has an extra fantasy army in 28mm ready to go. My goal is to get at least three armies done, statted out and based roughly correctly.…

not sure what would be more interesting:
a goblin child raised by orcs or an orc child raised by goblins.
How would it work out? Nature vs. nurture -wise.

Hot take: Humans in fantasyland aren't treated as the "default race" because of anthropocentrism, but because "human" is more just the term for a general blueprint that any random combination of elf, dwarf, halfling, gnome, goblin, orc, triton and firbolg genes will converge on given enough generations of interbreeding. Half-elf, half-dwarf? That's a human. Three parts gnome and one part orc? Another human. Three-quarters-dwarf, one-eighth-elf, one-eight-firbolg? You get the picture.
Humanoids are like the citrus fruits of the primate world. Show them anything that looks remotely similar to them and they will fuck until the cows come home

Hot take but i don't actually care for the push anti alignment. d&d is a combat focused game i think its fine to have monsters you know you're going to fight. I think the actual problem is specific races rooted in racist caricatures but everyone frames it round alignment instead? Whats really wrong with wotc generalising gnolls as evil? Evil is a tangible primordial force in the d&d universe, devils and demons exist, a paladin whose corruption is so pervasive it has actual force is a cool idea! (and works mechanically)
If you don't want that in your game thats your perogative but I don't see why its so important to tear it down completely

From the forward of The Hobbit, for anyone who tries to claim that “orcs” are different from “goblins”.

Here’s the base model for the Goblin Wolf Rider Lord. Definitely a very classic fantasy feel to him because, though you can’t see it in the pictures because of the lighting and the metal used, he’s not really got a square face like a lot of orc/goblin models have now.
I liked the wolf mount, though I felt as a leader, he needed just a bit... more to him, so I added a piece of slate to the base and some resin bits to the base, while to the wolf itself, I added some severed heads from the GW zombie kit and a small buckler type shield from the Warlord Games Roman Veteran Legionaries sprue I had.
Now, giving him some comparison shots with a Fireforge Games mounted knight and foot serjeant (third pic) and a Perry Miniatures 100 Years War longbowman and a Frostgrave Barbarian (fourth pic) it’s plain to see that he is a fairly sizable model that fits 28mm scale pretty damn well.
I look forward to painting him.
