15mm Orcs from Khurasan Miniatures

I bought some of the new 15mm orcs from Khurasan a couple of months ago and just now got around to painting them. 

I really like these a lot.  They have a great Tolkien like feeling to them.  I am looking forward to the line expanding.

This first picture shows how well these are sculpted.  They have a lot of detail and are quite easy to paint.  The only complaint that I have is that a couple of the poses are a little odd.  The spearman that is the 3rd from the lef is holding his spear near the end of the spear, which would be somewhat awkward because the weight of the spear would all be on the other end.  Still they are great figs!

This last shot shows how they match with other manufacturers.  The figs in the pic are Khurasan, Grenadier (Mirliton), Demonworld, Black Raven Foundry Great Orc, BRF lesser orc archer, Eureka .


  1. Thanks for the comparison. I've been trying to decide whether to buy these or not, but have never seen how they size up against other minis.

  2. For the guy who awkwardly holds the spear, I'd convert the spear into some sort of side arm like a sword or axe.

  3. That sounds like a great idea. Someone mentioned that they made it into a mace.
