Green skinned death metal act A Band Of Orcs, which covered the Type O Negative song "Green Man" for our digital Type O Negative tribute album, will soon be releasing a line of 28mm fantasy miniatures. A statement from the band's website reads as follows:

"We the denizens of Orc Tower are positively, diabolically giddy to announce that we have teamed up with Impact! Miniatures in a joint venture to produce a 28mm miniature set based on – you guessed it – the harbingers of the Domination… A Band of Orcs!

"The set will include all five warchiefs of the Gore-Stained Axe Tribe – Gogog Bloodthroat, Cretos Filthgrinder, Hulg ElfR.I.P.per, Oog Skullbasher and Gronk! in poses with their instruments. These minis will make a brutal addition to your Warhammer armies, a great coaching staff or vip crowd members for your fantasy football teams, or you can simply paint them and role-play the inevitable Domination!

"We tapped our erstwhile slave and chaos chronicler renowned artist Chuck Lukacs, longtime veteran of the war on human ear drums and the painter responsible for the A Band of Orcs’ Burning Shield and Axe logo, Ugly is Sexy t-shirt design and the WarChiefs of the Apocalypse EP cover, among other pieces of orctastic proporcanda, to provide the sketches upon which our monstrous visages will be based. Impact! and A Band of Orcs will release Chuck’s sketches over the coming weeks with the miniatures set for release at Gencon (the original, longest running and best attended RPG and war-gaming convention in the world) in early August. Patrick Keith, a magician of metal sculpture in the gaming industry, will bring these mini- manifestations of your brutal orc masters to life."

Metalunderground.com's xFiruath also commented on the upcoming minis:

"Heavy metal music anthems have been a staple of weekly gaming sessions for years, and now the two worlds are about to collide violently as the guitar wielding orcs invade the fantasy miniature market. You don’t get names like 'Skullbasher' or 'Bloodthroat' through brutal riffs alone though, as my poor players are going to find out when these minis hit the gaming table. So pull out the paints, crank up the volume, and hope your gaming group gets spared come the orc Domination."
