OrcQuest Board Game

Postby Spookyhappyfun » Saturday May 19th, 2018 8:15am

I know that the fun cover image for OrcQuest went around here a while ago. It was a version of the classic front cover art of HeroQuest but with Orcs instead of Heroes.

I know I was a bit disappointed when I found out that it was just a card game.

Well, here comes the Board game version!

I like the look of those minis. 32mm for the humans in that game, so may be a little large, but ive always been fine with monsters being bigger than heroes

Ah... Roll in the lid. That's something I've not seen since Might Warriors. However, here it is for the room reveal not the combat.

Seems to have a definite WarCraft-movie flavor. Has a company ever made official WarCraft minis before?

Blizzard made their own warcraft minis. They are cool but notably larger scale

Are these the World of Warcraft minis?
I've got some.
Used the yetis for replacements for the yetis in The Frozen Horror

That's actually the guy I bought a bunch of minis from. Including the Warcraft orcs and yetis.

One thing to watch for, if you get the prepainted world of warcraft minis, they are much larger. (Thats the one i thought you spoke of) the average female hero is 40mm. I have never seen the wow minis unpainted
