  1. A grouping from RBJ Games Company's latest Kickstarter, Pig-Faced Orcs (and Ettin Bodyguard!) Not'Nord, the Ettin(ess) Normal Nord: Shooty Nord: Shootier Nord: Iron Nord: Smashy Nord: Guardy Nord: Tossy Nord:
  2. It has been a while since I painted anything. A combination of my arms acting up again and my just not feeling it. Call it the recurring fallow season. So I am getting back on track with some Orcs. These are partly from the first Bones kickstarter and partly from the third. All together a nice band of 10. There are nine different orcs that are variants made on only two basic bodies, plus a singular warchief that I think fits in with the lot of them. I originally based them on 40mm round bases with sloped edges, the thinner-than-citadel knockoff ones. But there was always something not quite right about them, the bases were simply too large for the minis. So off they came. I ended up with making 37mm 3D-printed ones instead. I think they fit well on these minis. lots of pictures below
  3. Hadn't seen this here yet: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1620164718/28mm-pig-faced-orcs?ref=user_menu You enter the cavern with water dripping down from overhead. The smell of rotten meat is thick in the air. From up ahead in the distance you hear the loud battle cry of your enemy SQUEEEEEEE! Painted by Ben Rodman Pig faced orcs. The most iconic encounter of any classic adventure. We have a nice variety of these little oinkers in the pen. We enlisted the help of Bobby Jackson to sculpt the porcs and Jason Wiebe for all the pork besties. They did an awesome job. Fortress Figures will be casting these beauties up in lead free white metal. Any support for our small family owned business is greatly appreciated. Painted by world renowned artist Rob Wheeler Painted by world renowned artist Rob Wheeler This project is for unpainted, white metal and/or resin figurines. Models are provided NOT painted. Models are scaled to 28mm toe to eye or 1:60. Models are provided with a plastic tab/slot base. Figurines are not toys and are intended only for adults. Models may require some assembly, may have sharp or pointed parts and are a choking hazard to anyone prone to put them in their mouth. I backed for the Ettin(ess) Bodyguard myself
  4. So, a coworker and fellow painter gave me a bunch of unwanted Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire minis, so uh... Guess that's mostly what you guys will be seeing from me in the near future! As I'm just naturally inclined to orcs, and these guys look absolutely awesome, I painted Ironskull's Boyz first. Also, finally got my hands on some premade washes, so I ditched homemade watered down paints on these. Personally, I think it made 'em look pretty good! The number of ants that tried to photobomb this shot was ridiculous. The lighting on the individual shots was being weird, so sorry if some are darker and other lighter!
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. Another set from the "Lost Valley" expansion from Reaper Miniatures Bones 4, the Jadefire Tribe Orcs.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Here is the last model in the force to be painted before break starts: the boar chariot. I believe I will make my deadline!
  16. The last of the troops are on the board! I may hit my deadline yet.
  17. Here is the next part of the army. 9 of 18 orc warriors. Just the black primer and a little green so far.
  18. 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.
  19. 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)
  20. Back with orcs again ..actually the remaining 3 I had ( still some dwarfs and goblins waiting xD )
  21. 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..
  22. 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.
  23. 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)
  24. 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
  25. 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.
