  1. Just wondering if anyone else ever had any trouble getting 77059 Orc Berserker to stay standing up? He seems top-heavy.
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. Grim

    Orc Marauder

    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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. My first time doing a mod. It was simple but effective. You like?
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Been working a little. First up, my first (!) orc: Thought we had him identified as a Gladiator from Ral Partha's Legion Of Death set, but I've since come to think that may not be quite right. Does appear to fit with that set. I'unno. If anyone has further ID'ing info, much appreesh. Is that an okay green? For an orc? Serious question. A Dwarf Clansman that I guess Marauder put out through Citadel. Or something like that. I kind of love this sculpt, in its simplicity. Shield's been swapped out for a plastic replacement, I guess. I thought about trying to free-hand something on it but chickened out. Totally can't draw. Base was in poor shape and I haven't decided what to do with it, yet. May try some fake gravel (I've learned I hate the grass flock, but anyway) Any feedback and advice is extremely appreciated.
  15. Orcs! Gotta love orcs. While I didn't actually order the Orcocalypse add-on, we all get at least one copy of each orc in the Vampire package, so anyone can join in on this WIP. I figure this is a good one for an open WIP since there's probably about a 100 different approaches and color schemes to use on these guys. I picked out 2 of the 5 orcs to start with. As a big fan of Blizzard and Warcraft, I plan to paint these guys up in that style. Depending on how these turn out, I may try something different on the others. First step, washing, gluing, and basing: I removed most of their integrated bases, glued them to a round base, and then used Liquiditex Resin Sand to fill in and give texture. This stuff is great; fills the job of molding paste and texture in one go. I could have probably saved another step by just mixing my base color into the mix. It's white here as I had just put it on, but it dries almost completely clear.
  16. This is an oldie from Harlequin Miniatures I picked up at GenCon long ago, 2351 Barnorsk Shaman. The somewhat unusual skin color is from a desire to have him be a Red Man Shaman if we ever play 50 Fathoms. Very fun mini to paint, there area a lot of neat little details on him.
  17. My first post in the Show off subforum. This is my squad of black orcs. Most are from the Vampire box(77059: Orc Berserker, 77056: Orc Sniper, 77051: Orc Stalker, 77045: Orc Hunter, and 77042: Orc Marauder), but I have two metal ones (03489: Black Orc Warriors)as well. The eyes on the stalker ended up being a little wonkey and big and the faces of the bones orcs were a little hard to paint due to the softness of detail (except for the berserker, his face was still pretty solid) but I'm otherwise happy with how they all turned out. Their leaders and a few recruits are still being painted right now. Also these guys are my secend attempt at basing and my first attempt at snow affects on bases. I had some varying degrees of success with that.
  18. Finally completed this diorama I've been working on. I'm pretty well pleased with it, though I've debated adding some more wild grass to the setup to make it more wilderness. I had a lot of fun making it, the only downside is I had so much fun with it and now I'm eager to start another project but I'm not sure what to paint next! I wish I had a better camera than my smart phone and a better place to take photos, so these will have to do!
  19. Hi all, here's another WIP that I've started. These are two miniatures I received from two separate Red Box Games kickstarters. A barbarian and an orc. Here they are primed and ready for some paint. Front view Skin Base Coat and Fur Base Coat on the barbarian, and the still drying skin on the orc The orc brute is a slight conversion, I used one of the spare heads from the orc warlord on the head of the orc brute for a more menacing look. I can't wait to get this orc painted up because I can just envision him dragging that cruel and jagged blade on the ground as he approaches a foe (probably the barbarian!) Thanks for looking! I'm hoping you enjoy the ride as I work through this duo during the week.
  20. 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.
  21. I had taken a bit of time off, and the results show.. but, not too bad. It was a bit chalky, so I did a few green ink washes to even it out and bring out the green more..
  22. sculpted by Tre Manor. Rather happy with this.
  23. I speed-painted this Reaper Bones mini in two hours for a friend.

    Orc Warband

    I finally got done with this orc warband. The bowman had some deformities of the bonesium in his face so he got a wound that shows off his skull.
  25. Ok, here are three more that I painted in the last month. More will be forthcoming, I'm putting the finishing touches on some rats, another orc, and finishing up some skaven that I started a long, long time ago. I also need to do up the half-giant hero for a game... The bugbear. Lot of good paint jobs on this guy out there, I made a conscious decision not to make the hair and beard distinct from the fur, just shaded it a bit darker: This is Garrick the Bold (Crusader with Sword and shield,) but in my Pathfinder game he's presently a 4th level Paladin named Heodin (HAY-oh-din, I'm on an Old English kick right now.) And here's one of three goblins. Comments of any kind welcome! These guys are done (unless you spot something glaring,) but I'll definitely keep any criticism in mind for the future.
