Here's the first of my Orc band. Nothing fancy. Pretty much the classic colors.

I like the classic look, and it's very well executed. What colours did you use on the skin?

Thanks,

 

I used Americana Avocado Dip as a base, Reaper Forest green for shading and a mix of Avocado Dip and Reaper Pale Green for highlights

I love the base too. Is it sculpy and static grass?

This type of avocado has a nasty habit of messing you up big time though Cash; burning your house, eating your sheep, and unstringing your guitar. I'd look elsewhere for a tasty vegetable.

I use thin precut wood squares from the craft store and add Sculpy to them. The wood and sculpy bake together just fine. It's easier to get consistant sizes with the wood base.

Very nice. What size is that base? I'm still trying to decide what to do for bases for mine. 25mm just looks way too small for them.

Wood bases are great for that. I used metal washers on mine, but they were the original metal sculpts.

The bases are about 28-29mm. Just right for these guys if the feet are near the corners. I'd need at least a 40mm to put them square on the base and have it look right.

 

As for time, I'm painting all six of my vampire set of orcs at one time. The others are all mostly done, but still have a little work to do. I have put a good 10-12 hours at least into the whole gang and expect it will be another 4-5 minimum before I'm done. I'll continue to tweak this guy along with the others until I am ready to set them upon some unsuspecting villagers.

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.

      Death Lilies or something like that!

      This is the first metal fig that I have painted, just finished him up over my lunch break!  I wasn't planning on doing a "Hulk" theme, I was just messing around with colors that I liked and wound up with the green and purple.  It ended up looking pretty sharp so I kept It!  I couldn't find my earthshade wash, so I went with sepia. I might go back a redo it some day, but for now I'll keep it. Sorry about all of the background noise in the pic, I was in a bit of a rush but still wanted to share. Critiques and advice are always appreciated!  Thanks!

      I'm just really proud of this, my first work with an airbrush ever. Maybe it's not the best skill & craft work out there for finishing a figure, but I think I win some points for originality.
       
      What I learned...
      Sometimes, inspiration comes when you think your finished (my son said "I thought you were going for a nebula") Sometimes, your wife says "It needs something iridescent" when you think you're done and she's right. Sparkling Amethyst on the spines Airbrushing means mixing and getting your consistency exactly right - I got lucky on my first try Airbrushing base colors is insanely fast, uses almost no paint and produces something much more even than I could dry-brushing Dry brushing is great for aging/leathering a piece - airbrushing is all about consistency of coverage. Trying to add red-shifted & blue-shifted stars to the star field looked like birthday cake sprinkles. Nature always has better color schemes than I can come up with on my own. I still need to figure out how to layer/thin/build up my colors.  
       
      After initial airbrushing with Violet Shadow and Clear Magenta and maybe a mix with aged bonne for the belly.

       
       
      First pass at layering for the spikes. I've got some learning to do.

       
      Another angle at the "ready for detailing" stage.

       
      My son said "nebula" and I broke out the clear blue and thinned it, but probably not enough.

       
      Here's the "finished" product. I detailed so many stars in the blue areas. Then my wife said "iridescent" and I added Sparkling Amethyst to the spines. It's a great touch and highlights the raised part of the body instead of leaving it the same as the rest.

       
      For scale against another recent work, my lizardman army.

      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
