77042 Orc Marauder

Recommended Posts

2nd Mini to be finished from the LTP core skills. I'm really happy with how he turned out. also think I learned a lot more with him then the skeleton archer, although I did kind of skip ahead and tried some things with those skeleton guardians I painted but this guy solidified those skills I think.

"Unleash da boyz!" I think it looks good too.. You have splendid brush control and each paint is where it is supposed to be..


Time to up the ante by increasing contrast. Whic means darker darks and lighter lights.. 


Be bold, be adventurous.. Try it and you will not be sorry.

That's good work.  I got two of the Learn to Paint kits back when they were still metal, before Bones were invented and always thought the skills taught were so important.  I like the texture to the silvery parts, looks properly dirty.  And his eyes turned out great too!

Thanks everyone!

@stormbreach  Ya I would definitely recommend the kits to anyone, still got the 2nd kit waiting in the wings for after i finish Timur. I'm also happy with how the eyes turned out too as its been a long time sense I've done any and most of those were on 40k minis and i never really liked how they turned out, although i have no idea how you are supposed to paint these with the 0 brush they give you as it was a lot bigger then the one pictured in the instructions, ended up having to use a 10\0 brush for the eyes

      Ok, here is my first NMM paint job. I'm not sure if I dislike the technique, or just picked a bad mini to try it on first. I found it a bit fiddly and frustrating with all of the dully cast spikey bits. I did a pretty quick TT quality job on everything not NMM, so I know there are a lot of places to improve there. 
      Also, I feel like the photos make it look better than it really is. I'm pretty happy with how the front of the armor turned out, but the shield and shoulder pauldrons were frustrating.





      Would truly appreciate any feedback on improving the quality of my NMM!
      I'll be doing Mangu next and tracking in the same WIP thread.

      This guy was always intended to be toy box level painted. Basecoat, dry/damp brushing, and a light wash of Army painter mid-tone. But I actually really like the way he turned out.

      I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.

      This guy was to experiment on achieving realistic light colors on a fairly smooth surface (the apron in this case). After several different tries I was happy with the result...then like normal he sat on the paint desk for months. So I decided to finish him to low tabletop level and wash him in ArmyPainters midtone shade which led to a big tied mark. But he is good enough for my sons toy box. C&C appreciated.
