Adm'rul Kurgan and The Ironfang Pirate Fleet

Recommended Posts

Adm'rul Kurgan Grimjaw and the Ironfang Pirate Fleet don't all come from one Realm so they don't like to be tied down to any location and always have one eye on the horizon in search of the next drink/loot/fight. The fleet is often scattered around the oceans and seas of the Mortal Realms. They have used Blackrock, in Ghur, as a base of operations and meeting point for many years (and if you believe the old Adm'rul, he says he was Pirate Prince for a while). Before that they also used an uncharted island chain known as Hell's Teef, somewhere in the Sea of Serpents.

Adm'rul Kurgan is a veteran of a hundred campaigns in every corner of the Realms: from the steaming jungles of Ghyran to the ruined cities of the Hysh; he has burned ports along the Rotwater Blight, raided the islands of Okkam’s Reach in Ulgu, besieged fortresses in the Endless Desert, endured the perpetual snowstorms and barren wastes of the Silverglades in Chamon, battled on the rivers in the heart of the Jade Kingdoms, looted the Baneskull Islands of Shyish and engaged all manner of foes on land and sea. All the while stealing anything that wasn't nailed down, and having a go with a claw-hammer at anything that was. He and Da Ironfangs are always ready to run away from whatever the world throws at them!

It's surprising how well the trolls fit the theme without any work!  Excellent army. 

All the Trolls had some subtle work, a lot of it on their backs though. ;)

They each have a small collection of barnacles and fish. A couple of them have more nautical details like a ship's wheel.

So good kurgan! Been following your stuff for a long time on da warpath, never gets boring just better and better! Love that you name all the boys and put it on their bases. Also like your visible brush stroke style of painting too, big massive thumbs up from me!

The latest batch of pirate orruks from the Ironfang Fleet to get re-based for Age of Sigmar are the Ogresuns! I have a great deal of affection for this crew - I've enjoyed more swashbuckling adventures with them than any other warband over the years.
