Sorry nwasnt quite sure where this should go, so i stuck it here. Just found a good novel or rather 4 novels in one Omnibus edition by a guy called Stan Nicholls, written from the perspective of a greenskin rather than from an outsider. Havent finished it yet but am already hooked! Its all grit and action from page one. thought id pass it on in case anyone is interested.

this'd belong in the fungus beer hall, as it's not about tactics or modelling. it's one of my favourite books of all time. i've got the omnibus and the first in the new 'bad blood' sequal series. waiting on the next.

thanks BMTK perhaps someone will move it to the right area for me. Wasnt quite sure myself. Nearly finished it now and certainly a good read, will have to keep an eye out for more of the same.

These look great and i'll take your words for it. Thanks for this guys. It's hard to find good books with orks/orcs in them , much less good books in which orcs are the protagonists.

I enjoyed the series but thought it ran out of steam in places. The description of the instrumentalities underwhelmed as well. Still, a very nice change of pace to have the POV from greenskins instead of pinkies.

If you enjoyed this series, you should check out Goblin Corps by Ari Marmell as well. Only one Orc, but what an Orc! Tragicomedy from our POV!

well they're 5 balls with different amounts of spikes, and they're different colours. they're simple looking - they only need simple descriptions!

"5 balls with different amounts of spikes, and they're different colours" Yep. They make me think of tinker-toys, megablocks and so on.

i think my biggest problem was nyadds suddenly changing from big slug things with carapaces that live underwater to tree nymphs that look like women and are connected to the trees. big ass continuity error there.

Quick note: Dryads are connected to trees, Nyads are connected to water. Author prob just got a bit confused. there's also a book by Mary Gentle called GRUNTS: serioulsy check it out for Fantasy Orcs, it's fantastic!


Captain! Bring me another Elf, this one seems to have split!
