  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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..
  9. sculpted by Tre Manor. Rather happy with this.
  10. I speed-painted this Reaper Bones mini in two hours for a friend.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. So here is my second bones.I must admit they are starting to grow on me (as i have not been a big fan after my first attempt). I had a little distortion on his face but I worked with it.I did a lot wrong on this. So I primed him with Krylon plastic primer before I read it not a good primer to use. I am still using GW paint but will be fixing that soon. Anyway there is a half way finished pic of him here http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/51587-the-good-the-bad-and-the-fugly/
  14. Hey guys, thought I'd post a few photo's of my Pig Faced Orc Warband. I sculpted most of them myself, but the Reaper Bones Orcs were converted to match my other figures. I cut the heads off and sculpted Pig Faced Orc replacements. What do you guys think? [/u RL] My Pig Orc Sculpts flanked by an Otherworld and Reaper (converted) Orc.

  15. Here's the first of my Orc band. Nothing fancy. Pretty much the classic colors.
  16. 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 stalker next to him), and it really does make a difference. As always, C&C are welcome, and thanks for looking! For the Horde!
  17. I will make put a matte finish on both orcs today. The first one has no Quickshade. The white dot on the hair is from priming miniatures near my painted ones with a brush. I should never do it again! 14384: Lesser Orc Warrior 14424: Bull Orc Archer
  18. My deliciously evil partner in crime, currently studying for her Masters in Fine Art, has been taken by Figmentia! I foolishly suggested that she might like to try her hand at painting some miniatures with me and I've created a monster! A Monster in Fine Art, if you will! Although, painting with someone is very fun : ) Behold, her first ever mini, and weep! WEEP! And here's a quick shot of her second: I feel completely inadequate to give her any advice, given that her brush strokes are so much more precise than mine. Any thoughts, oh people who know what the hell they're doing?
  19. Had a lot of fun with this mini. Tell me what you guys think.
  20. Here is one of three of my orcs that I am working on. Hello, Gorgeous! I'm thinking on the next one I'll paint the skin a lighter grey and the last one will be a lighter grey but with a touch of green.
  21. Another from the Great Lot of Mystery I bought from a buddy a while back. The mini looks goblinoid, but it's about human-height for 25mm scale, so I assume it's an orc. Confusing the issue further, the clothes actually look a bit more modern/futuristic than medieval. I only know that it says Olley 1990 on the bottom. Maybe one of you has a better ID? The paint job thus far took about three hours at the office, in case any of you were wondering where your tax dollars go. Skin is a mix of leaf green and tanned, which I think worked fairly well. I used some GW camoshade to give him some green shadows. The jacket and shoes are actually drow skin with some imperial purple highlighting. I'll probably add some white to the imperial purple to add more prominent highlights. The pants and shirt were done with blackened brown, with some of their yellow shade applied more as a glaze and then agrax earthshade to dirty him up a bit. The pouches and the strap are oiled leather, with earthshade to bring out details. His hair is a mix of intense brown and blood red, then given carroburg crimson shade to redden it further. His eyes were a bit of a challenge, since I didn't have any white paint. I ended up using white primer. They may be the best eyes I've done to date. The sword I'm not entirely happy with. I did it up in blackened steel, some true silver highlights, and tried tying them together with a glaze of tarnished steel. Didn't work as well as I'd hoped. One of these days, I need to crack open LTP3. The other metals are simply aged pewter and ancient bronze. At this point, I need to add some more highlights to the boots and jacket, maybe some to the shirt and jacket, and dirty up the pouches. I should probably also highlight his skin, but I'm tempted to try it with a very different shade, the way Buglips went with his orcs recently. I have some of that orc flesh he used... I'm not sure what to do with the sword. For basing him, he looks kind of urban, but I don't have anything of that nature. I think I'll just use some fine grit, maybe with some "dead" static grass.
  22. I did this one for my friends d&d character! Sorry the pictures aren't great... Guess I need to work on my camera skills :3 I haven't tried my luck with doing different bases yet, maybe next time :)
  23. Well I first got this miniature about 14 years ago so he is finally off my shelf of shame, where he has sat all but finished for most of that time. The curious thing is now I can see how I have imporved as a painter; the flesh and purple for example are examples of what was my best quality 14 years ago, various other areas reflect my "get it done quickly" standard today. I wish I still owned my own gaming store and could spend hours sitting at the table painting and call it work still! One final thing, the back of this shield is flat so all the detail is painted on and I'm pretty happy with how that turned out.
