  1. I originally posted the WIP over here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/60174-mage-knight-orcs-conversionrepaint/?hl=%2Bmage+%2Bknight+%2Borcs Two of them are still being worked on, but I finally finished this guy off.
  2. Hi! I made 8 orcs and goblins for umbra turris, polish skirmish game, its my second comission, and first greenskins in my career:). I would say they are made in tabletop + standard, it was about 16 hours of work.
  3. I'm just getting started on this, posting a new thread to motivate me to stay on top of things. Internet is a bit slow today, so hopefully I'm not straying too far from the new guidelines. I'll post pictures when my internet is better The Orc Berseker will be an experinent in the Ollie Kickflip layering/blending method... so the reverse of my other orcs. I'm also using different colours for the skin - a more olive-y scheme. I'm going to base him the same way as my other orcs, all at the same time, so I'll probably do a show-off thread with all of them. The Tiik warrior will be a tester for some ideas for my Kraken from the Bones II kickstarter. Incidentally, somewhat similar to the paint job for the tiik champion. The Ranger Michelle, is a mini I'm painting for my gf, her colour scheme on request. The Ferocious feline is inspired by our cat Moose (who you can see in my avatar). Considering my schedule, I think I will be lucky to finish these this year, but I really hope I can.
  4. This is my first time posting stuff online. I am still fairly new to the miniatures hobby, but I dove in head first and started collecting and grabbing up all the minis (old and new that I could). This is my first big non-gaming use piece. I am still learning different terrain techniques, but I thought it would be a fun use of some old Kings of War white metal minis that I didn't plan to use for gaming. Sorry I am not a great photographer. I am sure that is something I will get used to as I photograph more of my projects. details, details (mostly done with repoduced bitz)
  5. Here are some quick tabletop paint jobs of the big Bones orcs. I am calling this my red orc squad, I will probably use blue or green accent color on my second, still unpainted set. Group shot with the previously finished Orc Berserker (77059) on the far left:
  6. Looks like a Villain, but maybe he has a pure heart. Who knows? Do skulls on your armor automatically make you evil?
  7. Here is another set of Bones models that have set on my painting table for quite a while. These are some nice models, detail a bit soft on the face. As always comments welcome.
  8. Just to stop people thinking I don't paint Reaper models, here are two additional Orcs I have been slowly painting, I may have got a bit keen on these models (purchased 2 Orcpocalypse sets !!) The detail is a bit soft but they are more then ideal for tabletop monsters. As always comments welcome.
  9. Recently got my Bones 2 kickstarter in the mail, pretty impressed with it, overall! Got to painting straight away, picked out some of the cooler looking minis to start with. First up we have Rogan the Orc Thief next I painted Rugg the Bugbear. Almost looks like a leader, so I have painted him slightly different than I intend to paint the rest of the bug bears. Colour scheme I got from another post here.
  10. These are a couple of miniatures that I meant to finish quickly but wound up spending a bit more time on. Orc Berserker. Most just quickshading but some extra attention paid to the skin. Quite happy with the result and will try to do the same with the the other bones orcs. Grave Wraith. Not much more than black + dry brush. I tried to do some OSL but I failed. It just wasn't to be this time. Labella Dermonay, Banshee. I really like this figure and I tried the "prime white and add lots of washes" technique I read about on these forums. I'm really happy with the result. Night Spectre. Same "trick" as Labella, except with green instead of blue. Didn't work out as well but in the end it resulted in a finished mini.
  11. For the last 3-4/4 for the Feb RP Challenge, 2x of the Orc Marauder as seen in the LTPK. Somethin' feels a little off in the finished product but I can't tack down just what yet Better pics will likely come when I get time to setup/use my lightbox.
  12. For 2/4 of the FebRPChallenge, I painted up Kavorgh in the guidelines of the LTPK. Not -entirely- pleased with how he came out, especially the eyes, but I've determined I need brushes that hold their points better now...
  13. Just wondering if anyone else ever had any trouble getting 77059 Orc Berserker to stay standing up? He seems top-heavy.
  14. 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...
  15. I originally had his skin be dark gray, but I didn't like how it looked, so I finally settled on yellowish brown. I got the idea from World of Warcraft, the new expansion has orcs with this skin color.
  16. I got a photo setup over the holidays and managed to mess around enough to get some photos. You can find the second part of the WIP (and links to the start) here. I tried a bunch of backgrounds but ended up really enjoying the wood veneer and the standard grey background. I'll maybe show a bit of both. 77045 Orc Stalker 77051 Orc Hunter This was also the first time I tried basing. I'm pretty happy with the results. I feel like the contrast got lost along the way, and if I were to redo this, I'd push it a bit further (though I used a wide range of colours).
  17. I have a lot of catching up to do, I was going to start with a different mini but I went back to my old "Works in Progress" thread and realized I never went any further with it. Unfortunately the WIP thing is a bit time consuming - I still plan to do it but not for everything I think. Still, I started an Orc Marauder, so lets post it here so I can get some closure. :) My greenskin army is growing! Maybe one of these days I'll gather the lot and post some pictures.
  18. This was for the Fall 2014 Miniature exchange. I decided to go pick Kharsin as my partner (since I'm one of the coordinators and we get to do that). It was a lot of fun to do, I originally had a whole different idea planned with a swordmage facing off against an orc archer on a wet cobblestone street, but early feedback from a few friends who aren't doing the exchange helped me refine my ideas. Inspiration struck and I decided to do more of a scratch build. The Tavern itself is made from balsa wood covered in plasticard, the McFiggin's sign is from the Oathsworn kickstarter, the door and mug are both Hirst Arts pieces (kindly given to me by Bonwirn), and the cobblestones are cut to size from an egg carton. WIP located here. Figures- Bregol Jagstone, Dwarf Ranger - Reaper SKU #03508 Sculpted by Tom Mason Material - Pewter Kavorgh, Black Orc Warlord - Reaper SKU #14560 Sculpted by Bobby Jackson Material - Reaper Bones Showdown at McFiggin's Tavern The night - well early morning - was cold, wet, and dark when Bregol Jagstone stepped out from McFiggin's Tavern only to find a behemoth of an Orc outside waiting for him. It was his mortal enemy, Kavorgh the Black, with his monstrous axe raised on high! Much to Bregol's dismay, the large mug he was holding full of the finest of dwarfish brew fell to the ground in his surprise, his red beard bristled and he quickly grabbed for his weapons to take out Kavorgh once and for all... Close-up of Bregol Close-up of Kavorgh (sorry he's blurry and I didn't realize it until after I sent the package to Kharsin) Anyhow, C&C are always welcomed and greatly appreciated, thank you for looking!
  19. Even though I didn't post pictures on the forum ahead of time, I still had WIP pics throughout the build process for the Fall Exchange Project that I entitled "Showdown at McFiggin's Tavern". Show-off thread is located here. This is pretty picture intensive, so I'll break it up a bit with the first couple of posts. Starting out, I'll show you all what I did with the tavern/base, then the orc and then finally the dwarf. I followed this tutorial on how to do the bricks/cobblestones. They were super-glued down in place, I added very fine sand to between the cobblestones and then covered the whole thing with a few coats of reaper brush-on sealer to seal it all down. The door was kindly provided by Bonwirn, this is a Hirst Arts piece, it's actually a wardrobe, but I liked it for the door. The wood around the door is very light weight balsa wood. I measured it out and cut it with a sharp hobby knife. The "McFiggins" sign was from the Oathsworn Dwarves kickstarter, I just got the bases and the scenery pieces. After I had the balsa all glued together and the door placed in, I filled the gap around the door with wood filler. I then cut plasticard to size to make it smooth and put "resin sand" from liquitex over the front to give it the stucco look. The top was another thin piece of plasticard, I took out a bunch of popsicle sticks and cut their ends off to size and super-glued them down in layers. The sides of the roof are also popsicle sticks that I cut to angles. Here's the base with more detail, just used some secret weapon washes mostly 'baby poop' and 'sewer water' in the crevices, and used stone grey and rainy grey RMSP paints with some rainy grey/ghost white mixture for highlights. More details added here.
  20. 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. Still trying to get better!
  21. Two of these of bones orc spearmen (77003) was modified and shanghaied into service as 50 Fathoms redmen. I considered also modifying the chainmain and making it into furs, but decided that was too much work for standard mooks. I also bought a set of captured pirates from Old Glory miniatures and painted up the natives as red men. Sadly the quality of the sculpts on these was not the best, so not sure they deserved the base treatment I gave them. Also painted up one of the captures pirates, I had to sculpt him a cap, since his head was very flat and weird looking on top, and his malformed leg was turned into a leg wound. I think the rest of the bunch will be unpainted forever.
  22. After finishing a mini and then stripping it today because it didn't look right I needed some relaxation and painted this that a friend passed to me to paint and yes it brought back memories. Critique please.
  23. My first time doing a mod. It was simple but effective. You like?
  24. Finally did some work, last week, when the wifey left town. A trio of Bones orcs for your viewing [dis]pleasure: Nothing groundbreaking, obviously, but some new stuff for me. I lined them up and painted the three all at once. One to the next to the next with each bit of paint. The only real difference I went for with each was the washing--I used, entirely as an experiment, an orange, green, and red (Citadel's, whatever their silly names are), as they sit in the photos. And followed with Reaper's brown afterward. It was an experience, I guess, if nothing else. I didn't kill myself agonizing over these guys, aiming mainly to use them for a Pathfinder game, and that, honestly, was a bit of a relief in and of itself. Hopefully they're good enough to go--and still, any advice for improvement is greatly appreciate. Thanks for looking.
  25. Here is my version of the Imbrian Arts, Blacksands Orc by Jody Siegel. I Googled hundreds of orc photos, and poured through my monster manuals (etc.) to come up with a skin tone that would satisfy me with respect to this orc. I've never been too much of a fan or the purple-skinned orcs, and I'm also not a fan of the bright green skin either. To satisfy my own taste as an artist I ended up with a skin tone heavily influenced by olive, brown and deep tones of purple to darken him up. I literally wanted him to look as though he'd been surviving in a desolate area, all alone, bounty hunting, preying on the weak and surviving at all costs. Jody's sculpt did an amazing job of capturing a visage that literally spoke to me that this was the face of a killer without a conscience. Much like a Tre' Manor sculpt, this figure comes with an amazing amount of tiny detail, and very small eyes. Assembly was a bit tough, but green stuff always saves my day! The colors I used on this figure include only Reaper MSP: Grass Green, Faded Khaki, Imperial Purple, Sun Yellow, Pure Black, MSP Sample (blue-grey shade), Fresh Blood, Blackened Brown, Mahogany Brown, Vampiric Skin, Vampiric Shadow, Blue Liner, Dark Elf Shadow, Nightshade Purple, Misty Grey, Black Green, Jungle Moss, Gory Red, Spattered Crimson, and Dusky Skin Highlight. I hope you like him. C&C always welcome. Per the flavor text of the Orc on his Kickstarter: An Orc of the Blacksands- The embodiment of a perfect warrior. Trained at brutal combat from birth and taught to survive in the most inhospitable climate on the planet.
