  1. This guy has a bit of a lazy eye and really bad foot odor. I imagine he's good with that giant ax in close quarters as well since he doesn't have any kind of back up weapon.
  2. 2 Orc Snipers 1 Orc Stalker 2 Orc Marauder 1 Kavorgh Orc Boss 2 Orc Berserkers 4 Orc Hunters 3 Orc Archers 3 Orc Spearmen Enjoy :)

    Orc druid

    awhile back I posted a pick asking for help iding a mini. it turned out to be an Orc druid from wotc chainmail series. it has been loitering around on my desk doing nothing so I decided to give it a coat of paint. here it is hope everyone enjoys it.
  4. This guy looks like that orc that would be a problem even if you were friendly with the group of orcs. Like he's got something to prove and always itching for a fight. His parents didn't love him. He also has a fur cloak like a diva.
  5. Last crossbow man. I went with my classic orc look.
  6. I finally got around to starting my Oathsworn orc in sensible shoes!
  7. I finally got around to painting some of the orcs from the first Bones Kickstarter.
  8. Another batch of Undead, this time from Johnny Borg Castings "Dungeon Monsters" Kickstarter. The horde: Dead Sonja: Halfling Skeleton: Skeletal Elf Ranger: Dwarf Zombie: Dwarf Skeleton: Goblin Skeleton: Zoblin: Orc Skeleton (with odd Mickey Mouse gloves): Zorc: Rattlin' Ratling: Rotting Ratling: A verminous duo: Undead Lizards: Skeletal Lizardfolk: Zombie Lizardfolk:
  9. This topic (here) reminded me that I actually bought five orc figures to print on my 3D printer from Dragon Lock, so I figured I might as well make a WIP out of me painting one of them. I picked the one I though looked the best, and would print the best. The printer I've got is a Dremel PLA printer, and I've been using the default software that came with the machine. They've since partnered with Auto Desk's Print Studio to add the ability to do supports, repairs and that sort of thing. Aside: I've been playing around with it while writing this post, and found a rather unusual thing happened. Print Studio had an "optimize rotation" button, which, being shiny and candy-like, I pressed. It put the orc snout down, and touching the bed in several spots. That's... an interesting idea of how to print it. Might do that just to compare. It might actually print better. The settings I used for it are below. It's a pretty basic printer, and I've done some dungeon terrain from their Kickstarter back at some point. I've also printed up large stuff, and attempted a CAV scale wooden pallet (yeah, that was too small). .10 mm layers .25 mm first layer 3 shells 35% infile, lines 80mm/s with 100 mm/s travel speed 220°C Fan on, 45°overhang So using the values above, here's the first picture. It's printed out in black. If one looks at the ax handle, at the top knob you'll see a little curly que. That's what happens when the printer doesn't have any supports across a location. By default (as shown in the settings), it's looking for a next layer that's no more than 45° angled to the next one. Well, that doesn't work very well with sudden horizontal surfaces such as the bottom of the torso portion of the figure. There's a lot of curly bits under the "kilt" (English failure for me noggin'), but I could always paint those as decorative tassels, really thick hair, etc. All told, it used less than 1.5m of PLA, which using the price I pay, comes out to about 30 cents for the material. That's really affordable for building up masses of mobs for a group to plow through. But let's get painting, and I'll start documenting some insights into this figure. Now it's really easy to see what we're up against. This is just automotive filling grey primer. And there's a lot that it didn't fill. But, it's a mook, and cheap, so let's not worry about winning any awards with it. (I've got a resin printer Kickstarter I've back, OLO, so it may do this at a better resolution; we'll see). There's that big curly string at the bottom of the base. That's a vine tendril maybe. The handle of the ax... that's... uh, very worn and aged wood. Yeah. The snout is... uh... lots of hair. Yeah. That's the ticket. Okay, so it's going to be pretty obviously a 3D printed figure. Meh. Mook. Cheap. Skip it. Let's start a base coat. I'm using Olive Drab, and going over the areas that are skin... and places that I think are skin. Here's where some insight comes in on how we can make this look better. Thought #1: There's no way a wash is going to work on this. It'll just exacerbate the layering. Not much to do there but avoid washes. If I'm going to want to do shadows, it's going to be by the brush. Thought #2: Forget painting sculpted details. Anything I can do to add detail however, will probably help hide the layering. Fancy patterns to simulate fabric (which might be really well looking, as I've got half the "weave" already built in), or insignia, or other such clutter will be useful in hiding the layers. Now, in the, (ouch) four hours I've been writing this post, I hit upon using the support features of Print Studio. Here's what it looks like if I print it in the same position. I believe all the yellow areas are locations where it's unsupported, and will frizz on me. Eh. Let's see what happens. And since it's pretty easy and cheap, let's do that strange optimized rotation, with supports. It looks like this: That's... interesting. But for science! I proceed!
  10. This past weekend I completed the four Orc Stalker figures from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Orcpocalypse add-on set. I converted three of the four figures so they would all look different. In the photo below, the first one is the original figure, the second has a new sword from the Orc Berserker added to his raised hand, the third has a replacement GW club added (Not sure if it was orc or troll in origin) and his other hand repositioned, and the fourth has his arms repositioned to hold a spear from one of the Orc Hunter figures. These aren't my best paint jobs by far, (it ended up being a busy weekend so I rushed to finish them); but I wanted to share them as I thought folks might be interested in seeing the conversion possibilities with these figures.
  11. A recently finished piece that stands on her own, I picked up Kulgara during Free RPG Day. She's a great mini and a fun encounter in "Iron Gods"...one day I may even run it to get a use for her in a game!
  12. The pathfinder rendition of this guy has his armor all metal. Eh, I wanted more color. I could add him to my Cult of Kirk if I so choose.
  13. Fun one to paint. His face had a mold line but I just worked with it.
  14. i dont like the mini head that comes originally i
  15. The Heroines in Sensible Shoes Kickstarter was the first Oathsworn set I picked up, and I found them greatly inspiring. I tried out some new techniques; I flocked around the entire rim of the base due to their shape, and tried out a new method for fire. Not sure how I liked the end result on the fire, and I'll see how much flock lies on my shelves before I judge that. First, my favorite of the set, the Half-Orc Barbarian: The Human Fighter: A Wee Folk Rogue...she's billed as a Halfling, but I mean, c'mon, she's wearing shoes (sensible ones at that). Dwarf with a big hammer: The Forest Gnome Ranger, painted up as a Goblin instead. I find my collection lacking in Goblinettes (Goblinesses? Goblinas?) The Bard: The Dragonborn Sorceress, with her awesome bone staff: Some sort of Wizardy type: A very impatient villager: A nest of very bad things: And finally, some group shots who couldn't keep everyone in focus (woops)
  16. Just a few shots of my finished minis from Bombshell Miniature's recently shipped Kickstarter: The Imperator: The refugee from Draenor: The Orc Shaman: The Cap'n: The Mascot: And the group:
  17. From Figone, Allan Carrasco sculpting, when too much Orc is barely enough. Got to get Allan to do a few Reaper projects.
  18. I picked up a bunch of Sandra Garrity orcs from the factory last ReaperCon, and made a start on them with this fellow to test out my intended colour scheme. Still working on trying to get my shadows and highlights in the right places. Praise and thrown pottery are welcome!
  19. As you are probably already aware, there is an official Middle-earth D&D 5e setting being released this Summer by Cubicle 7. This will no doubt create strong demand for figures for people's campaigns. I've noticed there are numerous figures already in production that will adapt well. The orcs in KS3, the Mountain Troll in KS2 (a tad Jackson-esque, but perfect for a big Olog-Hai or the like: MORE OF THESE!), the ogres in KS3 (perfect Tom, Bert, and William-MORE PLEASE!), the Balor from KS2 makes a passable Balrog (assuming Balrogs have wings), many dwarves, etc. This is only natural, as D&D is substantially derivative of Tolkien and Reaper's choice of subject matter is substantially derivative of D&D. Now obviously, lacking a license, nothing would be official, and trademarked names would be verboten. However, with this firmly in mind, my question is this: a) which figures already in production do you think work best as Middle-earth characters, monsters, etc., and b) what would you like to see to fill out the traditional Middle-earth bestiary in any potential KS4 or LE KS, bearing in mind that as the actual number of different species of monsters will be more limited, a variety of weaponry, poses, armour, sexes, and the like will be important
  20. This weekend I finished up the four Orc Sniper figures from the Bones 1 Kickstarter Orcpoclypse add-on set. I did some minor conversions to a couple of them to help make them look a bit less uniform on the tabletop Looking at the row below; The first orc has his arm sliced at the shoulder and wrist, and repositioned back around to look like he is reaching for an arrow out of his quiver. The second has had his arm sliced at the shoulder and repositioned down to look like he is reaching for his short sword. The third and fourth orcs are unchanged. Nothing fancy with these guys, just a quick paint-up to get them table ready.
  21. Hello again everyone. I've been working away at trying to improve my painting. Reaper Bones 89001 Pathfinder Red Dragon This is the model that made me place my first Reaper order and get back into painting. I've started using sand for basing again and I really enjoy the fine texture it gives. I tried using sealer to "save" my work a few times on this model but I never ended up removing my mistakes, instead I just painted over them. I think this has left some of the details a bit gloopy (e.g. the horns). Overall I am pretty happy with it but I would love to hear any comments. Once I know he is done I am going to Dullcote him and then put some gloss on his tongue. RAFM Durnaoth Elf Halberds and Ral Partha 03-209 Elf Standard Bearer I bought these off eBay not really knowing what they would end up looking like. I find the standard bearer looks a little goofy (reminds me of the Planescape Torment character models) but I really like the Halberdiers. They were weird to assemble, as they were molded with their right hands attached to their thighs. They had to be cut off and their arms bent into place. I still feel like there is a little something missing. Again, any feedback would be great. I am planning to get some gloss spray (Krylon maybe?) for these guys and then I will dullcote them. I will test that on the standard bearer first. My fiancee wants to set them up with the dragon somewhere in our apartment. Crucible 91-221 Orc Eagle Knights Another eBay purchase where I had little idea what I would be getting. I was really excited to find out that these are orcs with an Aztec spin. They are almost where I want them but I still have a few things left to do. Let me know what you think. Thank you!
  22. My last one was REALLY pink. This one is a little more realistic..
  23. As promised in my other thread, my Pan Oceania ^^ Starting with my favourite from the group, not least because she was... both difficult to get hold off, and then she turned up right under my nose Jeanne D'Arc Special Edition Initially I think she came as a bonus on a how to paint book I spent a fair while looking for this mini, for a reasonable price. I found several on eBay, for £50+ each, or for even higher with the book, which... was just too expensive to justify. I offhandedly mentioned this in conversation with the manager at my local store, and for whatever reason, he had one out the back and sold me her for the price of a regular mini Neoterra Bolts Military Order Father Knight ORC Trooper All the bases were made by Micro Arts Studio, with the exception of the ones being used by Jeanna and one of the Neoterra Bolts, who are on base toppers made by Anvil Industries There are more photos here http://imgur.com/a/J6yVf Which also includes Nisses, Fusiliers, a doctor, HEXAS and a couple of others
  24. I call him Hampton. He grabs his hat whenever he makes a kill.
