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:

      Hello all! I’ve been giving a set of orcs all too much of my free time recently while trying out NMM for the first time. I’d appreciate any constructive feedback! Especially with respect to how to finish off the chainmail.
       
      Also, given how top-heavy these guys are, they are prone to falling over with such a narrow base. any suggestions on how to base a medium monster for D&D whose footprint exceeds the 1” square? I’m guessing I just use a large base and blame the orc for engaging more foes with his obnoxious wide stance.
       
      Here are all of the orcs after base coating their skin with a mix of naga green and leather brown.

       
      After shading the skin with candlelight yellow, brown liner, and more naga green. Also worked on the bracers and boots.


      Painted and shaded the red skirt with dragon red and brilliant red. Base coated chainmail with black, metal plates with 50/50 black/white and a smidgen on vallejo red black.


      Filling in shadows on the metal for fist NMM pass.
       

      Filling in highlights.

      Now the medium blending...
       

      ... and then jumping ahead after working on the transitions, adding some edge highlights, and putting some scratches in.


      So, how did this go?

      Hello all, I have painted the Bones Black Jade Fire Champion. I went more vibrant than grim for her as an orc and also interpreted her dagger as being in a sheathe until I realized that it probably wasn't, given her stone axe, but oh well.

      I totally haven’t looked up this character’s name. He’s great. He’s an orc. Bones 4. Blah blah blah. 
       
      Anyways, I stopped painting orc-face mc-Orc doodle the orc prematurely out of painting fatigue. I had lots of other shiny new bones to paint. It’s a great sculpt and he deserves respect though. 
       
      So let’s try this! If you’ve got improvements to suggest I’ll implement them and post a new picture. It could be fun and you’ll motivate a fellow nerd to “brush up” and turn a decent job into a great job - which is one place I could use encouragement. You can of course call it done anytime you like, but sometimes you know the figure needs more. This will be a fun exercise.

      Hello everyone.
      Since my old faithful camera is definitely out of order i have to take pictures with my cheap cell phone.
      the result is disappointing.
      but it doesn't matter, here there are are my last minis.

      Thanks to a friend's encouragement I finished my Orctober project just in time.  
      It may only be one lonely Shaman but he still counts!
       
      Technically also my first Bones V miniature painted since he was one of the monthly preview promos.
