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

      My 2 year old is currently fascinated with hippos so that inspired me to pull this one out of the mountain of Bones and paint him.
      Perhaps I should add some gloss, but I need the brush on kind.

      A couple of adventurers I quickly painted for a pathfinder game I'm in. One player requested a barbarian figure with a big sword... and evey other one I had in the house uses an axe! So this guy made the cut by default. (I did remove a very bent axe from his other hand and that seemed to work out.) The other figure is more rogue-ike but matched the description of a young wizard another played was looking for.  The OSL is...ok but it's a technique I need to practice more. 
      As always, comments and feedback are appreciated. :)

      Painted up this minotaur over the weekend for an upcoming adventure. I might go back and add some highlights in the future, but I've been pressed for time lately and have just been trying to churn figs out. 
      His eyes are supposed to be plain white, he's a blind minotaur working for a Rakshasa that steals eyesight from unlucky adventurers.  He'll be using those big weapons to chop veggies and prepare a meal for the Rakshasa, but if the party can't sneak through the kitchen they may end up on the menu.
      Critiques and advice welcome as always!  Please note that I'm not even going to attempt making a base for this one.  I'm not confident enough in my painting yet, and want to get that down before I move on the next step of building up those cool bases that I see all over these forums. Thanks in advance!

      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.
