  1. Hi all, my first post was answered by such warm and supportive folks I decided to have a crack at the ol' orc from Reaper mini training set #1. The left eye took me 6 tries (and twice that many curses.) Really enjoying this new hobby, first time I tried was back in 1983 and it was a disaster. Maybe patience does come with age. :) #separatedbutnotseparate
  2. I have posted this elsewhere on the web, but thought that I would share here as it might help with motivating others. To start with a bit of background: 2019 saw a lot of changes in my life. After living away from my home for nearly a year for work, I was promoted and able to move back home. It took a while to unpack, and as we neared the finish line, my wife and I learned that we would become a family of 3 in March of 2020. Once again, the house was thrown into chaos as the house was rearranged. My new job kept me busy with travel, and I spent a lot of time on the road. This fall, I was finally able to undergo a much needed but often delayed surgery. During the recovery, we had new windows installed. This forced me to pack up my painting desk as it was located under a window. And It almost stayed packed up for good. Since I started painting, I have never had a year as unproductive as 2019. How many models did I complete? 6. Everything going on in my life made it difficult to find the time or energy. Painting is what I do to relax, and I have found it beneficial to my mental health. I feel so much better after spending time painting. The fact that I could not find the time to paint and had to pack up my set up for a 2nd time that year was frustrating, and I found myself rage quitting the hobby. I packed everything up and had no intention of painting for the foreseeable future. So what changed? While visiting over Christmas Break, my nephew asked if he could come over and paint with me. He is 13 years old, and for the most part, other family members have forced their interests on him. When he was 8, he took an interest in painting after seeing my work on several models. I have given him models from time to time and have tried to encourage his enthusiasm, but as he has gotten older, he no longer paints. But this year he wanted to, and we had a great time. And I decided that I need to get back into the habit of painting. My Nephew's work: So I have re-stablished my painting table. I found all of the projects that I started over the past year, but did not finish and packed away. The goal of this project is to re-establish my painting habits and complete the plethora of unfinished figures. I started last night by picking out two of the miniatures that I thought would be good starting pieces. Reaper Miniatures Hill Troll (02421) and Brother Hammond (44007). I started the Hill Troll while painting with my Nephew, and I like how it is turning out so far. The metal is close to done, and everything else is a rough base coat. I have just put a basecoat on Brother Hammond as I did not have time to do much more than that. It is not much, but it is a start, and that is all that matters.
  3. I painted these guys up from Bones 3 over a year ago, but finally took pictures of them so that I could sell them on a certain auction site. Got $25 for them.
  4. Painted these up over the weekend. They're a little shiny from the satin varnish, but I still love 'em. Had a blast painting them. Especially the skin, from Bones Dungeon Dwellers Monsters set.
  5. Going a little ambitious here as I've never tried doing this many multiples at once. 3 different old school army sets from the 80s and 90s. From front to back we have Grenadier's Orcs of the Severed Hand, Grenadier's Ogres of the East, and some of Ral Partha's Gargantuan Orcz. The last group is not a complete set, but random picks I got from Iron Winds Metal. Though they're called gargantuan, they're not so much nowadays as can be seen when you compare them to a Bones orc. Also, as they're random picks, some of them don't have all their parts, like the one above on the left is suppose to have a shield. So big Bones over there made a sacrifice as I actually wasn't too keen on painting him anyway. And this next guy is a standard bearer, but I don't have the standard. So I put something together with a Reaper Weapons Pack piece and a GW skull.

    Mantic orcs

    I found these really easy to paint quickly using my usual method for orcs. I got a bit bored though of dark grey, brown grey, black metal, copper, dark red, dark brown, then a black wash. The two that stick out were painted with a traditional 'elven' palette. The idea is either that they have melted elven armour or captured an elven Smith as a slave or, that they are mercenaries in a 'good' army.
  7. Hi, I plan on trying out warhammer in the future and I accidentally have enough orc minis to make a 50 renown skirmish warband. So, here they are: 6 savages, 7 archers, and a avatars of war orc shaman resin copy I plan on using as an wierdnob shaman (leader of the group) that needs to be based. I plan on putting some rocks, sand and grass on their bases, and then giving them a nice paintjob. I have never painted a "unit" or an army before, and I would be super thankful for any tips or suggestions that you might have for me before I even start, so please feel free to post them! :D This whole project might take and I will post all updates in this topic. Cheers and Waaaaagh!
  8. Another set from the "Lost Valley" expansion from Reaper Miniatures Bones 4, the Jadefire Tribe Orcs.
  9. Bit of a kitbash here. The chap with the spear is from Alternative Armies. The others are a mix of Warlord orc heads (previously Wargames Factory) with two frostgrave arms and bodies, one Oathmark goblin, and one Oathmark dwarf heavy infantryman. Have managed to get a really quick palette going for speed painting orcs. I prime them by brush with Vallejo dark grey primer, then use Scale 75 black metal for the armour, Vallejo hammered copper for decoration and metal details, dark red for cloth and dark brown for leather. The skin is Vallejo Model Colour Heavy Warm Grey. Then the whole model gets a black ink wash and I pick out teeth etc in light grey. These models took about 90 minutes altogether, ex drying time.
  10. Enjoyed painting the single DD orc and brought two more. They are a bit bigger but very much in the same style. Applied the same colour scheme. Am looking out for the remaining two but think they may be limited edition.
  11. Here is the last model in the force to be painted before break starts: the boar chariot. I believe I will make my deadline!
  12. The last of the troops are on the board! I may hit my deadline yet.
  13. Here is the next part of the army. 9 of 18 orc warriors. Just the black primer and a little green so far.
  14. Hey all, Here is the start of a small Orcs and Goblins force. These guys have been sitting around for a while, but since I forgot to pack my case of miniatures when I came back overseas, they are next up on the painting table... I hope they'll make a nice complement to my Ogre army, and be useful for RPGs and Warhammer Quest. So far they have gotten some brown, beige, and two shades of green.
  15. Gullivar (02942) and the Hellhound (03609) are both metal; acquired them at the Reaper Factory a couple of years ago. The hellhound, as with the Bones version, has a slight gangsta lean - down and to the left. I previously thought it was just the Bones version. These Bones orcs are the 8 green-skinned orcs to follow up on the purple-skinned (Dreadnaught) orcs I posted last month: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82900-8-bones-orcs/&tab=comments#comment-1758789 Did a weapon swap for this version of Kavorgh (77064) using a Bones Bugbear mace The Orc Stalker (77051) also got a swap out when I cut off his knife and attached a skull shield which came from the Bones 3 Kickstarter weapons; he looks less stalker-ish now, but I liked it. Also featured are the Orc Slayer (77430), Orc Grunt (77429), Orc Berserker (77059), Orc Sniper (77056), Orc Hunter (77045), and Orc Marauder (77042)
  16. Back with orcs again ..actually the remaining 3 I had ( still some dwarfs and goblins waiting xD )
  17. Hi, not much time recently , but I managed to finish those 3 guys , orcs enforcer from massive darkness ( boss and 2 minions ). I have a couple more of that serie to paint as well :D..
  18. Hordes of the Auld World - Orcs and Goblins, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1103158358/hordes-of-the-auld-world-orcs-and-goblins Dont know how to share more information while on the phone.
  19. Some orcs that I had started a while ago as practice but set aside but are now ready for some WAAARRRGH! I still really like these designs of orcs with the exception of trying to paint the eyes on them, half the time I cant tell where the eyes should go. I think of the four the Berserk is my favorite. C&C always welcome. Bones used 77429: Orc Grunt 77059: Orc Berserker (Two Handed Sword) 77051: Orc Stalker (Two Weapons) 77045: Orc Hunter (Spear)
  20. I've finally gotten around to taking some photos, so I figured I'd share. A little info on the minis first though. All the bases are made with broken up cork board that was picked up from our local hobby shop. Then dusted with some sand and painted, then flocked. These little guys were clear coated pretty heavily for table use. Sorry about the quality of the photos. It's the best I could achieve with a cell phone. They aren't nearly as glossy in person, and their skin is quite a bit more olive colored in person also. Anyways, here are the item numbers from reaper if anyone wants to hunt them down for themselves: 03400, Orc Spearman and Swordsman 03405, Black Orc Hero 03429, Black Orc Archer (X's 2) 03489, Black Orc Warriors
  21. This was a trio of orcs I recently acquired for cheap and liberated from 20+ years in blister packurgatory. They are from Grendel’s “Leviathan” line, and the sculptor is unfortunately not credited. These are some seriously hefty minis, slightly larger than (but still to scale with) Reaper’s Orc Berserker, et al. Mostly I wanted to try out my new basing stamps and these guys made a good excuse for that. I also wanted to experiment with orcish skin tones. The remainder of the figures I wanted to make less “nice” and more “uniform”, so most of the details were simply basecoated, hit with some GW Nuln Oil, and occasionally highlighted. First up, the spear carrier: For the skin, I used a base of MSP Brilliant Green. This is, in my opinion, a poor choice for orc flesh. Great for a tree frog though, probably. For all three, the square leather armors are Leather Brown, and the fur fringes/hats a mix of Desert Sans and Mountain Stone (to match the orc from the LTPK). Cloth areas are Templar Blue, marking them as the Blue Team, I guess. Next up, the...standard bearer? Very similar in attire, with the addition of a big fuzzy cloak done with Intense Brown. I actually attempted to do some layering, but big and fuzzy isn’t the most conducive surface to work on. His skin is a 1:1 mix of Naga Green and Tanned Skin, and I think it came out quite nice. I really loved his expressive face and big tongue. Finally, the swordsorc: By this point I had ceased caring about quality (aside from skin) and my brush control was fading rapidly. Came out good enough in the end, though I wish I’d done his vest in a different color. Despite looking a bit greenish (to my eyes) in the pics, his skin is a 2:1 mix of Palomino Gold and Tanned Skin. I like it, it’s sufficiently “non-human” and a nice change of pace. Comments and critiques welcome, leave them below. Additionally, if anyone can identify who sculpted these it would be much appreciated. The molds are currently owned by Scotia Grendel, but they don’t list the sculptor either.
  22. Hello community, I finally started preparing my bones 3 orcs and want to base them. I am wondering what base size would be the correct if we use them for d&d 5e ? I assume 25mm, but from the figure size it’s more 32mm. Anyone some suggestions please? Do you think 32mm would work as well with the d&d or pathfinder map tiles? regards, nuki
  23. About "Caesork Mhork Aureliork has decided to expand his empire. He has sent his fearsome Legiorks to south. It has already conquered the tribes of the mountains of the West, the fierce clans of the North coasts and the nomads of the deserts of the East. He sent his hero Maximhork to exercise his hegemony over the giant Cyclops of the "OHMYGHORK" islands and executed all those who opposed his rule." "Now it's the turn of the rest of the peninsula. The lords of the human provinces fear him, because they know that their Cohorkts are implacable. Their Centuriorks possess an intelligence and tactical knowledge unfit for your race. Their technology is more advanced than that of any orc tribe. All creatures that terrorized men now serve Caesork and according to the messengers their gods listen to them. Caesork, his soldiers call him; Emperork, all his subjects. And that must be the case because it is the first time we have heard that an orc warlord is capable of weaving diplomatic alliances with other races. Some of the lords of the provinces closest to the Tyrana Mountains have already started dialogues with their Tribunorks. Will I have the courage not to kneel?" The Orcs of the Tyrana Mountains have been elaborated according to current quality standards but without forgetting the classic flavor with which many of us grew up in the decade of the 90's.

  24. I’ve loved Blood Bowl for a long time, and I was super happy to see Games Workshop bring it back (ok, some of us were playing the whole time, but it is still great to see their new minis and boards). Here’s a team that I got to do for a client. I’ve always favored the Bad Moons, so I was really happy that he wanted these guys in Bad Moon Yellow.
  25. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/621743078/the-goblin-king-miniatures-set Text Link because picture is a bit too non-PG. This is a miniature set featuring the Goblin King being carried around by his burly orc goons, as he flaunts his girls and his gold. The set fits well into any 28mm heroic to 32mm fantasy miniature setting. This set can be easily be the center piece to any goblin army.
