  1. Hello all! I’ve been giving a set of orcs all too much of my free time recently while trying out NMM for the first time. I’d appreciate any constructive feedback! Especially with respect to how to finish off the chainmail. Also, given how top-heavy these guys are, they are prone to falling over with such a narrow base. any suggestions on how to base a medium monster for D&D whose footprint exceeds the 1” square? I’m guessing I just use a large base and blame the orc for engaging more foes with his obnoxious wide stance. Here are all of the orcs after base coating their
  2. 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.
  3. Howdy, Still working on models from the first Bones KS... Click 'em, Kev!
  4. My third attempt at miniature painting. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, though it's more green than I had originally intended and I struggled to get the large metal surfaces to take more paint after the first coat.
  5. Had a customer walk into my store and request a painted Orc for a Monster Campaign he and some friends were going to be running. I figured send this was going to be a "hero" monster played by a character the armor would be somewhat maintained so I painted it with a small amount of rust as apposed to a large amount like I would normally paint it. I figure a monster trying to rise to power wouldn't let his armor go to waste. I hadn't done one before but I think it turned out great. The skin has more depth then the picture shows the lighting kind of washes all that out. If you like what you see I
  6. Was cataloging my Reaper paints the other day and noticed I had a bottle of Green Black. I couldn't remember using it for anything (or even when I got it) but I liked the look of the colour and thought it might work well for some Orcs, which is would also be a good excuse to get back into painting some fantasy stuff. So I grabbed a handful out of the big bin of Bones Orc goodness and away we go. I plan to put gaming bases on do the broccoli got lopped off. This actually slowed me down a couple of days as I snapped what turned out to be my last #11 cutting Kavorgh's base, and it too
  7. Howdy, Been working on these beginning at ReaperCon... Because fiendgip is mashic! Thanks for looking, Kev!
  8. I have to admit I like these orcs quite a bit now that they are painted. They painted up quick and easy. They are more shiny here than in person, but maybe I will use this as an excuse to use some of the matte sealer I got in my last order. They will do nicely for D&D, at least until my Shield Wolf Orcs get here 77056: Orc Sniper x2 77042: Orc Marauder 77059: Orc Berserker 77051: Orc Stalker 77064: Kavorgh, Orc Warboss
  9. So, I've been invited to the FLCS to play in an Age of Sigmar scenario. I've never played before, and I don't own many GW minis. I was told that this would not be a problem. Right o' then. Then next step was to figure out what run. Evidently for the scenario I needed to bring some sort of Hero and a pair of units with the minimum number of models to make up each. I downloaded the rules (all four pages of them, shocking coming from GW) and all of the Warscrolls (army lists basically). Reading through the Warscrolls, I finally hit upon something that I already had models for. Orcs. I
  10. Painted up some mooks for tabletop use. It's been awhile since I painted anything this size. I did Ebonwrath recently, but painting a dragon is a little different than smaller minis. Who knew? Anyway, these guys helped me get some practice and back into the swing of things.
  11. This past weekend, I finished up the four Orc Berserker figures from the Bones 1 "Orcpocalypse" add-on set. I tried to do minor conversions to each figure to give them a little individuality. Armed with my hobby knife and some Gorilla superglue gel, I had fun cutting, repositioning and gluing the orcs to make each one look a little different. Looking at the row below; The first orc is the untouched basic figure. The second has had his forearms flipped around and repositioned opposite of the way they were, so the sword now is in front of the orc. I also replaced the sword blade with one fr
  12. I'll take a page out of hammer570's book and post a little introduction thread here and show off a few of my preliminary efforts. The very first mini I ever painted was about a year ago, at the very first PAX South. Reaper was there, and I had so much fun I kept going back. I had been wanting to paint a mini ever since Reaper started going to the various PAX shows and had some friends who did it, but it never really seemed to work out with so much else to see and do at PAX. On the last two days of PAX South 2015, I felt like I finally had some time to try it out and pretty much got hooked righ
  13. This is my very first WIP topic here, and my very first time painting minis at home. My prior experience is painting about 15 minis in one-hour paint-and-take sessions at Reaper's booths at various PAX conventions over the last year. That's done with brushes that have been pretty beat up by other convention-goers, no palette suitable for thinning paints, and of course a rather short period of time. It was a lot of fun, it got me hooked, and I had a few results I'm actually pretty happy with, but I feel like a complete beginner about to paint his very first mini. I have never really done one be
  14. I realized I never posted the finished mini in show-off. The WIP started all the way back here and the mini was done in June. It got sealed in-between posting.
  15. I bought this guy as the model for one of my players. I haven't decided what I'm doing with the base yet (other than "I'm going to do something with the base" - I boiled it into shape before painting but after I had paint all over the model it decided to curl up and get wobbly again) but the rest of it is starting to take shape. I decided to go with the dark elf triad for skin colour, just because it seemed like fun. Here are pics: I know I need to work on the highlights on the leather parts (especially on the lower body) and fix a few goofs with the metallic paint... Aside f
  16. I didn't get in on KS1, but a nearby comic store was parting out a few sets for reasonable prices, so I was able to snag some of my higher priority minis, including the Tre Manor orc set. These are interesting sculpts. Big and bulky, with slightly more realistically proportioned heads than many orcs. It's odd though, because the big guy up front and the archer almost look like a different species. They're more like the warboss mini (not pictured), while the other 3 have differently shaped heads, no ears to speak of, and tiny little noses. It's odd. I was honestly so frustrated painting t
  17. After painting 77042: Orc Marauder for the Bones Learn to Paint Kit, I decided to paint the other Tre Manor orcs in Bones in the same style. The original Orc Marauder (second from left) is shiny due to a reaction between spray varnish and Bones. It has received a coat of Reaper Brush-on Sealer to remove the tackiness, but it looks like I need to hit it with Testor's Dullcoat to remove the shine.
  18. I love painting these guys. I thought I had him done Monday, then I looked at the pictures... "Whats wrong with his eye? and Needs more contrast on NNM... I may base him (and all this set of orcs) in a red desert environment, but I will need 40 mm bases. Final version:
  19. Hello. This is my second topic post. Yesterday I posted my beginner metal minis, and now I am posting the Bones I have painted. I missed the first kickstarter but my friend went in on it, so he bought me a Kaladrax as a gift (never knowing I would discover it only cost him $10) and also handed me a pile of minis he never intended to paint, including some really nice ones I would have paid for. I pledged to the second kickstarter with that same friend, so shortly I will be getting a boatload of new stuff and at the rate I paint I will never need more. My partner has already told me I'm not allo
  20. Done in the style of my regular orcs, except I switched the clothing bits to rust instead of red. I think it suits the orcs better. This is the first orc outside of the early Bones ones (normal orcs) I've done, so I'm glad to see the scheme translated over well. I have some 77105 Kagunk, Ogre Chieftan minis that will also get done this way. They appear a bit orcish, so I'm using them as even bigger orcs. That'll give me normal orcs (Norcs; 1HD orcs), big orcs (Borcs; orogs), and huge orcs (Horcs; ogre stats). When I get one of each done I'll share a family picture.
  21. I finally got to painting my Bones Orc Berserker, by Tre Manor. It was one of the first Bones I purchased, an awesome sculpt. I didn't get him nearly as green as has been my tendency with previous orcs. Was aiming for some more bluish black. In other news, my first use of a Secret Weapon wash is here: I used Baby Poop (lol) on the dark armor. Again, having trouble with the photos. I went back and took the last couple shots here after; I think maybe they give a better representation of how he looks in person. Thanks for looking. Comments and criticism are very welcome. Stil
  22. I decided to start a new thread for the various other Orcs I'm going to be painting over the next few months. I'll probably do some comparison work here too. This way I can have accurate tags. If I do any more Marauders or Swordsmen, I'll update that thread. Orc Berserker - full shading treatment. I plan to do three more of these with different painting techniques.
  23. I was going to post this in Bones, but since I couldn't post pictures there, I figured I'd do it here. I'm one by one making an orc warband (no good reason, I may play them in something one day, and at any rate they'll be great for tabletop RPGs.) I love Tre Manor's orcs - the problem is they're a bit too big to fit on a 1" fender washer and if I put them on a 1 1/4" washer I can't fit them into my smaller miniature case. Besides, they'll be a bit big for our grid. I went over how I fit my first Tre Manor orc, a Marauder, in this particular forum post: http://www.reapermini.com/f
  24. Here are two of the orcs I just finished from the Kickstarter package. I did these in an open/group WIP if you'd like to see the progress. When I first saw the sculpts for this line of orcs, I knew I had to do a few in a Blizzard Warcraft style. I've spent so much time in the Warcraft universe in various games, when I think of orcs, this style of orc is the first thing that comes to mind. Still not completely happy with my gold NMM, but I'm very happy with the steel results on the Berserker's 2-handed sword. I used more blue than in past attempts (including the s
  25. 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...
