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...
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.
