  1. Here is some progress I've made with my "vintage orcs" warband project. A project I'm working on very slowly, only when I feel in the mood. Orcs, from various boxes/games. Common traits: being old and plastics. A group of Goblins. The 4th edition ones are godawful dull and uninspiring, but I wanted some just for nostalgia... Group shot of the warband up to now. I've also branched out to Reaper Bones: for now, just an Hobgoblin among them. Bigger pics here: https://gabbigames.wordpress.com/2016/01/24/orchi-vintage-parte-2/
  2. Big fan of these pig faced orcs. Its a welcome change from the usual gorilla type orcs.
  3. Orcs for my game.. Table Top..

    Here are the three orcs I worked on today. They are for a game I have coming up on Sunday evening. I started the WIP post around 2pm. I had been working on them for about 30-45 minutes by that point. I wanted the hand on the shield be reminiscent of a decaying claw of some sort. I think It came out pretty good. Enjoy! CAH
  4. My 2 favourite orcs in Reaper's catalogue, sculpted by the wonderful Sandra Garrity. I was aiming for grey orcs when I started, and they wound up a bit more grey-green than I intended, but I'm happy with them.
  5. Just got a pack of The Red Box 1/72 Dark Alliance Orcs:set 2 that I plan to use for goblins. The plastic is kind of rubbery, maybe a PVC material, unlike the styrene like plastic I was expecting. It is for the best to be honest, main sprue can be bent in half and returns to original shape with nearly no trouble and only a tiny bit of discoloration. That will at least keep the tiny weapons from breaking easily. The plastic seems a bit like Bones, so filing does not seem too effective. Plan is to clean and wash them on the sprues then pin the sprue itself to some sort of anchor for painting. Probably give them each a paperclip shortbow or a couple javelins from hammered paperclips.. Since I kinda like the base colour of the plastic, first thing is to start with a wash of Minwax polyshades Antique Walnut and see what happens.
  6. Atlantis Miniatures- 28mm Goblins,Orcs and Trolls

    If not for Black Plague, Conan, Blood Rage, Dungeon Sage, Darkness and Light ... and maybe Bones III, I'd be interested: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1636851747/atlantis-miniatures-28mm-goblinsorcs-and-trolls/description
  7. Ral Partha orcs

    http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_drum_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_scimitar_behind_shield_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_scimitar_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_standard_front.jpg http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:Ral_Partha_orc_with_swinging_scimitar_front.jpg So I just finished painting these Ral Partha orcs, ones that will have ended up coming from their Kickstarter. I had to link them, because the majority of them have their orc dorks dangling about. Not utterly happy with the lighting, look a tad washed out, but maybe I'll try to take some better pictures later. Painting five similar models at the same time can kind of seem like it takes forever, especially with the limited time I typically have to paint. I kind of got a bit more time to paint this week though, so just got these finished up today. Enjoy!
  8. Orc apocalypse

    My plan is to paint the orc apocalypse from Bones 1, this will involve re basing them on dungeon tiles and bringing each one to life to this standard.
  9. Orcs! Humans. They come. They breed. They rape the land. Steal its magic. The glaciers are moving. The world is growing colder. The sun is growing dim. They don't see it. But we do. As do the rest of the Elder Races. The Naiads, deep in the water. The Centaurs deep in their forests. The Trolls, in their caves. The Giants, high in their mountains. The Kobolds of the deserts, and the Goblins of the swamps. The Dwarves and Elves are retreating, leaving this world. We cannot, for we have no powerful magics. We are Orcs! We will stand and we will fight, when no others will. Others will come, as long as we are at the forefront. They must, for if this world perishes, we all perish. For many generations, our tribe has been kept as a standing army by a half-Naiad sorceress. She is vile, but we serve her because she works to save the world from the humans. We are branded as slaves, but she cannot hold us, should we choose to leave. We are Orcs! Her plans are nearing completion, and we are her most formidable warband. We strike at the heart of a human settlement tonight to obtain an artifact. She tells us it looks like a star with three points, and that she must have it. It is vital to her success. We must succeed, our lives, our kin, our world, everything we hold dear is at stake. We will succeed, for we are Orcs! None can stand in our way! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Orcs! is a fantasy campaign using the Guardians of Order BESM: The Slayers d20 mechanics. It is intended for up to 10 players at a time, and if there are more, they will wait in the queue. The link (at the top) is to a folder in my Google Drive which contains all the pertinent information for the game. It is intended as a dramatic comdey, and can vary wildly from one extreme to the other. I will warn you in advance that I...borrow...liberally from Stan Nicholls Orcs: First Blood and Orcs: Bad Blood. They were, in fact, the sole sources of inspiration for the campaign. (So, if you've read them, no spoilers, please.) Yes, the campaign and the book start off the same, but where the campaign goes from there is entirely up to the players. The game will start once I have a minimum of 6 active players. I would prefer a full warband of 10, so spread the word. I will also be running this game live (once I get home), and may keep journals from both groups to share with each other at the end. Each character will need a voice color, and your full character history and character questionnaire will be public knowledge. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Active CharactersAuberon redambrosia fishnjeeps Spike Arc724 TGP Queued Characters Any questions may be asked openly here, or privately via PM. Good hunting, warrior!
  10. I finished up some conversions (and standard grunts) I started about two weeks back. With our Reign of Winter game wrapping up, it's always good to have some low level guys. Of course, most of these sculpts are from Bones I (or before), but the extra Bugbears did come with Bones II, so that's sort of progress toward it, right? So, to start, we have the mighty forces of King Togg-Togg (he's the one in the fanciest hat, of course)
  11. I decided with all the doubles of grunts that came with the Bones II Kickstarter, I'd add a bit of variety to them. To be fair, only the Bugbears came (again) with Bones II, the Orcs were sitting in a trade box and I thought I'd have some to be more traditional Orcs than my Warhammer apemen collection for D&D games (or they could always serve as Hobbos or Half-Orcs in a pinch) I think the Bugbear King (with greataxe) came out the best so far.
  12. Some tabletop quality Bones Orcs painted LTPK style For the Resolutionary Challenge.
  13. Orcs are unattractive!?

    Orcs are unattractive you say? Well just imagine Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy. Bam! Attractive female orc.
  14. Reaper Orcs - continued WIP

    This is continued WIP that used to be part of my gigantic continued WIP. It will essentially be for the basing of the 77045-Orc Hunter (Spear), and 77051-Orc Stalker. Both by Tre Manor. I'm mostly done the basing, but I thought I'd create a new thread for that before I post in show-off (hopefully on the weekend). I just need to get dinner started and convert pics, so stay tuned for posts showing basing progress. I will be using a similar basing technique with my other orc berserker.
  15. Smurfy Orcs, Now With Bases

    Once upon a time, I had a consolidated Show Off thread, and in it I posted some smurfy orcs. However, they were not based. My gaming group generally uses a 1" grid so I wanted to have the orcs on a 1" base, but they have such a wide stance that they don't fit well on a round base. A square base has about a 1.4" diagonal, so I decided to pick up some square bases and try to fit the orcs as "medium" creatures. Months later, I finally got around to it. I think it worked out fairly well.
  16. Here's my pathfinder goblins - I played with OSL at different intensities, I think my lesson has been learned seeing them in photos - more intense is better. Then my orcs - I posted the two handed sword guy a long time ago, and the archer as well, but I finally got around to batch painting the rest of them. Hmm I had two different pics of the Orcs anticipating some focus issues, but there didn't seem to be any, but I have 'em hosted offsite so I'll post 'em anyway...
  17. 77019: Orc Swordsman (3)

    Finally did some work, last week, when the wifey left town. A trio of Bones orcs for your viewing [dis]pleasure: Nothing groundbreaking, obviously, but some new stuff for me. I lined them up and painted the three all at once. One to the next to the next with each bit of paint. The only real difference I went for with each was the washing--I used, entirely as an experiment, an orange, green, and red (Citadel's, whatever their silly names are), as they sit in the photos. And followed with Reaper's brown afterward. It was an experience, I guess, if nothing else. I didn't kill myself agonizing over these guys, aiming mainly to use them for a Pathfinder game, and that, honestly, was a bit of a relief in and of itself. Hopefully they're good enough to go--and still, any advice for improvement is greatly appreciate. Thanks for looking.
  18. Black orc squad bones and metal

    My first post in the Show off subforum. This is my squad of black orcs. Most are from the Vampire box(77059: Orc Berserker, 77056: Orc Sniper, 77051: Orc Stalker, 77045: Orc Hunter, and 77042: Orc Marauder), but I have two metal ones (03489: Black Orc Warriors)as well. The eyes on the stalker ended up being a little wonkey and big and the faces of the bones orcs were a little hard to paint due to the softness of detail (except for the berserker, his face was still pretty solid) but I'm otherwise happy with how they all turned out. Their leaders and a few recruits are still being painted right now. Also these guys are my secend attempt at basing and my first attempt at snow affects on bases. I had some varying degrees of success with that.
  19. I did have more of my second wave to post - I would have gotten these up at the time but I didn't have a digital camera that was worth a damn. First, I have a neat comparison. The first of these minis is an Orc Swordsman done with full shading, highlighting, etc. The second is essentially a basecoat, picking out a few extra highlights, and an "Agrax Earthshade" wash: --------- Interesting, no? Compare to the same model that I painted (and posted) earlier - this one was done with a basic wash/drybrushing technique:
  20. WIP Black Orcs (Bones)

    Didn't see a Black Orcs WIP thread, and well, figured I'd just make my own anyway (that's cool, right? what't the netiquette on that?) Pictures; group shot close ups THE FURS: tan skin is the basecoat of the furs, I plan to go in and wash pretty much the whole model with a diluted soft coat (The Army Painters Warpaints quicksade soft tone) and then the furs with an even more diluted dark coat. I hope this will achieve a good layering and furish look for the furs - we'll see. THE ARMOR: I plan to make the breast plates rusty and beat to hell, starting with a dark brownish red, and building up layers. I found the technique online called "Jeff Rust" but I'm sure it's been around under other names. Note the blue and the burgundy clothes. I wanted to give the impression that these guys pretty much scavenge most of their clothes from dead. In my mind blue and burgundy were probably the colors of the local Men-At-Arms/Militia. For the Arm/Leg guards I was/am trying to do a "Shiny Black Armor" look. (2 drops black, 2 drops silver). I'm not sure if it's really working, or what I'm trying to make it read as (other than you know, "Cool"). Any input or ideas would be appreciated, I might just make them pitted and rusted like i plan to do for the breastplates, probably would look best and tie in well. Thanks for reading. Keep Painting.
  21. Some orc bones

    I've been painting up some bones orcs lately for a new mixed manufacturer orc army that I'm collecting to use in Mantic's Kings of War. They all still need to be re-based. I'm not sure if that will require removing all or most of the base they are attached to, so I've also left their boots mostly base coated and roughly washed. They'll be finished when I get the extra bases I've ordered along with an orc ax regiment. I've also got some Ral Partha Gargantua orcs coming. I'm going for a more old school look with this army. This Bobby Jackson warboss will be my first Krudger, which is what orcish heros are called in KoW. I've named mine Rugoth. Rugoth here is pretty much everything you want in an orc leader: Bulky, angry looking and wielding a huge battleax. I really love the hands and strips of flesh nailed to the shield. Its been a bit since I've picked up my brushes, and the bones material was new to me with this one, and I feel like the paintjob suffered for it. Still, at bones prices I can always buy a new one and do an updated version in the future. I suspect Rugoth will probably be a lieutenant to a more imposing leader in the future. Here are a couple of archers, one by Bob Olley and another by Tre Manor: The Bob Olley archer comes in a pack of three, those two are waiting for the plastic mantic orcs so I can do some head swaps. All four will join some Ral Partha orcs, also sculpted by Bob Olley to form a unit of ten orc Sniffs (the KoW term for orc archers). And finally a group shot of my growing tribe: I'll keep posting as the army gets bigger. Hopefully both of my orders should come in either this week or early next. Theres also a box of 24 Wargames Factory orcs at my FLGS for 20 bucks. I'm sorely tempted to pick 'em up on friday.
  22. 03489 Black Orc Warriors

    03489 Black Orc Warriors These were an absolute joy to paint. Tre has a signature style and I discovered that I like that style a lot. I now wish I'd bought every one of his Reaper Orcs. They're currently on my Wishlist. I did a complete W.I.P. on them http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49983-olearys-wip-thread-of-everything-reaper/ I know there are things that could be improved on them, but these are being sold for tabletop and this is as far as I'm willing to go with them. The basing is very simple and were done specifically for gaming purposes, not show quality. C&C are welcome though.
  23. My Bones Orcs!

    Aren't they precious. I just want to take them home and roll dice against them! These were sort of speed painted in 1 week. I used NMM on the bronze and chainmail, but shaded metallics for the blades. In case you're wondering, I deliberately put the heart tattoo on the wrong side. You know orcs...
  24. I just bought the Black Orc Warrios #03489 and am trying to make a decision about what colour to paint the skin. I've never painted an Orc before and am just now learning to paint a Goblin, so please understand that I know absolutely nothing. I've looked pictures of Orcs and I don't favour the green skin for them. I do like the one painted up by Jeremie Bonamant Teboul on the Reaper site. Can anyone tell me what triad may have been used to get this skin tone? I'm favouring grey's or blue grey's for them. I will be ordering paints from Reaper next week so any help would be appreciated. Also if you have a pic of an Orc that you think is really cool, I'd appreciate it if you could put it here so I can look at it. I'm open to suggestions. Thank you.
  25. So here are the Bones Orc swordsmen (77019), which are the last of my bones orcs (untill Boneami arrives). And here is the last missing spearman (Bones 77003) that I had blamed the cats for stealing. He was in fact hiding behind some other minis on the shelf. Since he was late to the party he got the bent bronze spear.... And here is the whole tribe (can you find Waldo the warrior?) Fun group to paint, I am sure they will harass adventurers for a long time.
