David's Chainmail Orc Druid

Recommended Posts

I picked up my Orc Druid from e-bay, and he arrived already sort of painted.

So into the paint stripper he went, and on the other side came out looking much better!

And then tonight he got painted with brush on primer.

For the most part he's a well sculpted mini, though there is a mold line running across the skull on the staff, and then down the staff and across his right hand. The other big on is on the underside of his left arm. The worst bit to get is between the straps on the back of the staff

 

Talking tonight with the Knarthex, Dilvish, and CW about skin tones, I think I'm gonna try to match the blue I used for the Black Orcs from Bones 1.

Nice plan. Is he a lot smaller than those orcs?

Not really. I'll take a picture tonight. The face is radically different, but the size works just fine.

His face is different because he is old and steeped in the ways of evil.....

 

either that or to much tofu...

Not much progress tonight because of D&D. Mostly slapping some blue to test for skin tone against the other black orcs I've painted. This is Void Blue. Might be a bit lighter than I'm looking for, but I can darken it up.

The fur was heavy dry brushed with Ebony Flesh/Linen White, the teeth and bone got Dirty Bone, and the leather got Tanned Leather

Nice work!

 

I will say this to all the folks painting this guy....

Do all of your work on his skin, at least his arms, and seal it before doing the scars...

and have the eraser brush handy....

      Wizards of the Coast, Chainmail Miniatures Drazen’s Horde faction 88361, Ogre Trooper.
      This 42mm tall pewter model was sculpted by Mike McVey and I painted it with acrylics and inks.

      This is an old wizard figure from the ChainMail game. I'm including him as part of my Morihalda Challenge; he was already painted, but I did some touch ups, and based him. I was having a bad day, but didn't want to break my streak, so I needed something quick and easy.
       
      Still trying to get the hang of playing with my wife's light box; he's a little washed out.

      Here's an effort I made at painting this orc.  I've only been painting three weeks so I am open to help/comments. I added some Welsh slate to the base.   Took some inspiration from an artist called slashhamster.  Thanks

      Not much progress so far. Washed, and hot glued to cork. I didn't check for mold lines before I started slopping brown liner on him, so I finished, then removed mold lines, then touched up the paint. His shield wasn't well attached, so I just pulled it off. That'll make him easier to paint anyway.

      June’s Reaper Forum Hangout Figure of the Month was the Orc Sharpshooter. In continuing the theme of filling the more common slots of a Frostgrave Warband with various humanoid monsters, this guy can serve as either an archer or ranger. I got this mini originally with my Bones I kickstarter, and painted him up years ago. This version I ordered and painted at the same time as Blacktongue, so there’s a lot of overlap. Also, because I was trying to keep my orcs all themed, color-wise, he looks a lot like the Orc Shaman and the black orcs I painted before.









      After washing, scraping mold lines, and attaching to the cork with hot glue, I base coated him with Reaper’s Brown Liner. I started the the flesh with Void Blue, working in some Royal Purple and Icy Violet. The purple is most noticeable around the nose, lips, and knuckles. The finger nails are Icy Violet, while the teeth are linen white.



      The fur vest and boot cuffs started with mountain grey, working up to cloudy grey, then up with linen white. The armor and skirt/undershirt were both base coated with Dragon Red. The armor was then painted with scorched metal, then shadowed steel. The skirt was highlighted with a mix of Dragon Red and Marigold Yellow. The bindings on the bow were painted with scorched metal. The dagger cross guard and pommel were painted with Dragon Brass.



      Unlike the gnolls, the orc’s leather was done with Ebony Flesh, lightened up a bit with polished leather for highlighting. The main part of the quiver was I think a mix of nut brown with polished leather with the upper cuff, bottom cup(?) and lacing was mostly polished leather. The fletching was Cloudy Grey, followed by a Linen White dry brush. The bow was also painted with polished leather, eventually. I had started with a darker color, but it just didn’t work, and it looks better with the lighter color. I figure it’s a horn blow maybe? The boots and dagger sheath are nut brown with some polished leather/nut brown mix highlighting. 





      The base so far is Mountain Grey, and like the gnolls, and most of the other minis I’ve been doing lately, will wait until my Base Boss kickstarter to come in before being finished off.

      Once the warband is all put together, I’m not sure how he’s gonna feel about being potentially bossed around by either the goblin apprentice or captain… Somehow I think it’ll be easier with Blacktongue than it will be with this guy. He’s too smart for his own good.

      Anyway, here he is finished with the version I painted before! Definitely an improvement!!
