While working on the Orc team, I naturally had to do a few Orc Star Players as well.
I can’t remember if this guy is still in the rules or not. I think they retired him, but they might have brought him back.
An Orc Chainsaw Star Player is too iconic for me to resist either way. And it’s nice to have a counter to the Human Chainsaw Player.
Minis wise, he’s a Willy Miniature, but a bit older. Not sure if I got him around the same time as the Troll on my Orc team. He might have been a later purchase. Either way, he didn’t have as much definition as some of the newer minis, so I had to fake it a bit, as you can see from the above picture of his back.
Now, the chainsaw could (should?) have loads of blood on it. But I don’t know, I just didn’t feel like it. One, I don’t like to go crazy with blood on minis, but maybe I felt he was grim looking enough to not need it. Like the Grim Reaper, he don’t need lots of blood on his blade to scare people away, right?!
Colors wise, I admittedly screwed up. It wasn’t until after I had him 100% done, that I remembered my plan for Star Players. ‘Try to add color schemes into their uniform that reflect all the teams they can play for’. Well, that would mean I need to add some pink at least, as he can play for the Chaos Pact/Renegades. (I’ll be going with the original team’s Pink/Green colors). Oh well. Knowing GW, they will likely end up changing which teams any of these Stars play for anyways…and then I will have colors that no longer match at a later date. So, I’ll just do the best I can.
As I mentioned, he is a bit older Willy Miniature. So he’s about the right height with the 2016 GW minis. He is slightly leaner than them though. Partially because he doesn’t have much armor. I think he still works though and looks decent. Here he is next to my Orc lineman (below).
