Grim's Second Wave part 2 - Orcses!

Recommended Posts

I did have more of my second wave to post - I would have gotten these up at the time but I didn't have a digital camera that was worth a damn. First, I have a neat comparison. The first of these minis is an Orc Swordsman done with full shading, highlighting, etc. The second is essentially a basecoat, picking out a few extra highlights, and an "Agrax Earthshade" wash:

Interesting, no? Compare to the same model that I painted (and posted) earlier - this one was done with a basic wash/drybrushing technique:

There's something to be said for many techniques. All those minis would be welcome on any table I was sitting at. Find whichever one gives you what you are looking for and that you enjoy using the most.

Agreed. I figured with Orcs it would be fun to play around with different techniques. The trouble with these guys is there are a lot of items around their belt, which is the real time suck with me.

 

I'm going to do the same with the Orc Beserker (one of Tre Manor's orcs.) It's a mini with a lot less fiddly details.

i like them all but i think the first one posted doesn't have much depth (shadow) to the skin. neat to see different techniques applied by the same person to the same miniature. thanks for sharing.

Yeah, I tried, but it could definitely stand to be darkened in the recesses. Still learning! I'll add the orc beserkers to this thread when I do them, since I'm planning on displaying them at a panel in January, my current plan is one shaded, one basecoated and washed, one just basecoated (I'll wash him after,) and if I get one more, I'll do a wash/drybrush on him. I have three at the moment.

 

OTOH, I'll most another orc, the "Orc Marauder" now. This one I did a full attempt at shading - I did in fact do it after all of the above orcs. I don't think I like my lightest shade - it sticks out too much and doesn't read quite right, but otherwise I do think this guy came out pretty well:

      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

      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!

      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.  :)
