More of Grim's Orcs

Recommended Posts

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.

Took me a while, but I got another Orc done.  I actually finished it Sunday, but I haven't been able to log in all week.  C'est la vie!

 

Very similar in coloration to my Berserker:

Looking good.  A little more shadow on the red kilt/skirt would bring it up a notch.

You could use a green wash for this. I'm finding green shadows for red look fantastic. ::):

I may well try that.  I do agree that the skirts don't have a lot of contrast - I did some shading on it, but it's definitely very subtle and doesn't read outside of a few inches.

Just on the subject of odd shading colours, I've used a little bit of thinned violet or purple to shade and desaturate the shadows on my greenskins; but I'm going for a lot darker look than this.

 

Nice clean work! Personally I think the deepest shadows want a little more depth, but this is good, solid work nonetheless.

The shade coat on these is Christmas Wreath, so it actually is pretty dark.  I think the flash and the background lightened them up some, I may well take new pictures with a different background.

Here's the Spearman again with the green wash on the skirts.  I put him against a white background, but he's still a bit washed out.  Probably the flash.  C'est la vie:

      This my orc warlord on a warg. It is a Nolzurs deep cuts orc on dire wolf miniature. 
      I did most of the painting in one day, I do need to touch up the base and redo the finish on the flag, but otherwise he is done.
      I was aiming for a Hound of the Baskervilles look for the Warg. 





      Now he just needs an actual name besides Orc Warlord....
      Thanks for looking!

      This is one of Mantic's earliest metal minis, the "limited editon" Orc Shaman from 2011. It was AFAIK not available by itself, but added to army boxes, deals and so forth and I believe I got this from the first Kings of War kickstarter in 2012. Or an army box with orcs.
      Today, it is on their website and can be had by redeeming 25 mantic points through their points scheme. It was known for a while as "Wip the Half-Caste" but now is back to "Orc shaman" I suspect the "Wip the half-caste" name is some sort of internal Mantic joke.
       

      I must admit I have always found this model to be rather busy and difficult to read. There seems to be so much going on.

      Orc and goblin gals are some of my favorite things to paint but alas they are few and far between

      Promised thing, thing due. Here are pictures of my Gnoll hunting party. All of them are Reaper Miniatures Gnolls, painted with Reaper Master Series Paints. I added the archer's bowstring and converted two models (see last picture).
      I will now work on a display base for them. I've found an inspiring picture of a dusky sunset in the desert for the background.

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of my latest Gnoll, a converted Toghra the Gnoll Leader. The upper part is from 77235, Toghra the Gnoll Leader sculpted by Jason Wiebe. The lower part of the mini is 77236, Bloodmane Gnoll Warrior sculpted by Tre Manor. The spear head is the blade of 02757, Gastaroth the Vampire sculpted by Werner Klocke and the staff is from 14056 Weapon Pack 1 sculpted by Tim Kaufman. Here's the link to the conversion WIP if you'd like more information.
