Trying to finish up my orcs. I am mostly just making the mooks now.

These guys are clearly not the cream of the crop.

Also did a new PC, a holy warrior. The great sword looks a little Paizo to me, but it is (I think) a 5 foot long blade at scale.

For anyone interested in doing something like this, here is what an orc factory might look like.

I'm seeing there a lot of orcs chopped into pieces! You should have included a warning :P

Orc factories don't have strict safety procedures, I guess!

It's probably because 5 feet is fairly ridiculous even for most two-handed blades and you have him wielding it one handed.

Rapiers, used 1 handed, did hit 5' and beyond.

Some of the greatswords hit over 6' overall, with about 18" to 24" of hilt, and another similar of false hilt past the quillons. They CAN be wielded 1-handed, by exceptional individuals.

I've seen the late Sir Kyslon, KSCA, wield a 5' 6" overall rattan sword 1-handed. It actually is heavier than a 6' steel blade... And it was not weak hits. Rung my bell quite loudly. He was over 6', and well muscled.

So it isn't "ridiculous" - suboptimal, yes, but ridiculous? no.

I was trying to convey that he is about to grip with both hands, but it just looks like he is wielding one-handed and trying to calm everyone down.

Getting tired of orcs, cannot wait to move on to something else. Anyway, some more pics:
