Ork Smashers: Alternatives to GW Wargame Exclusive

Ork Smashers Alternatives to GW Wargame ExclusiveWargame Exclusive has a ton of cool alternative GW minis, and today Rob takes a look at the Ork Smashers and Grots in this unbox and build!

Wargame Exclusive has been pretty popular for a while now, with lots of hobby stores offering the Grim Skull models they sell. Their kits tend to be insanely detailed and are great painting challenges if you are up to the task. Let’s check out Rob’s thoughts on these Ork Smashers.

Grimskull packagingWargame Exclusive retails for Grim Skull, so you may have seen them at your Local Game Store and not even realized it before.

The larger models, like the artillery piece, come in small boxes with bubble wrap inside. While the little guys come in their own blisters. Both of the packages are protective enough to get the job done.

Artillery Pieces

The Grots!

Even More Grots!

Finished Artillery Piece

Lastly, we have the actual artillery piece. Technically there are two variants for this one, each with a different body, but ultimately they are pretty similar. This is grot sized, so its a little small. However, it will fit perfectly on any 60mm bases you may have laying around.

Check out the video for Rob’s full breakdown and thoughts on all the models!
