Comic #1461

1 Dwalin: Thus way, to thu Brudge of Khazad-Doom. {translation: This way, to the Bridge of Khazad-Doom.}
2 Lambert: I wish you'd stop saying that. It makes it sound like we're about to be ambushed by thousands of orcs or something.

I'm not entirely happy with the last panel. The fact is, I don't have an army of orc miniatures. I found someone who does, and asked him to take a photo of them for me, so I could paste myself in front of it, but unfortunately he only had a dinky webcam and the resulting photo wasn't fantastic quality. Ah well, it gets the point across.

I love that first panel, by the way.

Oh, and if you're watching, the last panel is an example of a scene to scene transition - fairly rare in Irregular Webcomic!

2016-09-23 Rerun commentary: While I have painted several miniature gaming figures over the years (including all of the Fantasy cast themselves, plus the Space cast), I haven't painted enough to qualify as an army of any sort. It's a fairly time-consuming hobby.
