Finally finished my 18 strong orc army (okay it's not really an army, it's for D&D). Last six were just finished yesterday (the blues and purples). What can I say? These guys are really cool minis. I really love their "old school" feel and they are perfect for the battle mat. Like all my "armies" they are uniquely color coded for easy identification (I attack the blue one with the sword). Their skin is the 29810 / 29811 / 29812 HD mossy / turf / meadow green triad. I thought about making them a bit more cartoony but in the end went with a more realistic green. Comments and criticism always appreciated. The feedback I've gotten on these boards made me repaint several of the colors to get a brighter end result and greater contrast, so that's still something I'm working on. The whole army on my shelf...
From the the Getting to know you better thread, here is the first mini I ever painted followed by the second and third attempts. The first is a Mage Knight Metal Goblin Grenadier. Painted at the Mage Knight Paint n take at Gencon some 14 years ago. They are all a little dusty from sitting on the shelf. After that I tried Mithril Miniatures LoTR Goblin King Then I tried to paint Reapers 02259: Orc Warrior Of Kargir by Sandra Garrity The last two did not turn out nearly as well as the first attempt likely do to using cheap plastic brushes (includind a Testors brush from a model car I had built) So I had very little ability to add detail. Also I had a much more limited selection of paints to use at home rather than at the paint n take at Gencon.
