He-Month: Oh, oh, oh, he’s magic!

Ha! You thought I was out of models, didn’t you?

Nope, lending his magical ‘expertise’ to the forces of goodness and order is Orko the Great!

The model is from Heresy Miniatures and is a ‘Halfling Wizard’ called...wait for it...Norko!

Painting wise, this is was a very simple job. Unlike Pulpcitizen, and because I’m lazy as well as cheap, decided to keep the hair at the back and paint it as his scarf. I’ve also made a nod to the 2002 version by putting the black circle on the medallion and giving him a ‘gold’ scarf around his waist rather than gold trim on the robe.

Like Beast Man, the eyes were a pain. Unlike Beast Man, I’m still not happy with them, but I’ve messed them up so much, this will do.

Basing is pretty standard, but I’ve tried to position him so that it looks like he’s floating without having a pole up his bum. I’m happy with that bit.

As for the rest of He-Month, I’m still not totally out of models, but things are about to get obscure. 

You’ve been warned...


  1. Looks great to me and the eyes look good. What is it you are not happy with?

    1. They’re just not Orko’s eyes. They’ll do though.

  2. Another super entry for your "He-Man" month, Kieron. What a corking series of posts you're turning out :-)

  3. Excellent work on Orko; like Simon I think the eyes look fine. :)

    When do we get a group shot of Heroic Warriors (and the same for the Evil Warriors)?

  4. I can’t wait for the obscure...
