77045 and 77051 Bones Tre Manor Orcs - Hunter and Stalker

Recommended Posts

I got a photo setup over the holidays and managed to mess around enough to get some photos.

You can find the second part of the WIP (and links to the start) here.

 

I tried a bunch of backgrounds but ended up really enjoying the wood veneer and the standard grey background.

I'll maybe show a bit of both.

 

77045 Orc Stalker

This was also the first time I tried basing. I'm pretty happy with the results.

I feel like the contrast got lost along the way, and if I were to redo this, I'd push it a bit further (though I used a wide range of colours).

Thanks, Ub3r.

Now with additional (occasionally blurry) photos.

 

Also, even though there's a matte finish on those minis, I'd like to think that I've discovered a finish that I'll call "Orc Sweat." (patent pending).

Hah, orc sweat. Good one!

Gnarly!

 

Contrast isn't about color so much as value. To get contrast you need to make sure to have good light lights and dark darks arranged in such a way as to make the model coherent.

      I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
       
      I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors!  Do I get bonus points for that?
       

       

       
      Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

      Another Bones figure. I'm not entirely sure where the color scheme came from. I just started and it kind of grew. 
       

       
      This is a very annoying figure to paint. The hat brim is very wide and there's detail under it that is almost impossible to get to. The same is true of the beard. But the semi-random color scheme turned into something way outside what I usually paint, but in a good way.
       
      Bones are great for experiments, because I don't feel like I have to obsess about every detail like I would for a competition piece. And I think my quality is going up as a result.

      Another Bones figure. I don't paint many non-humanoids, but I liked the way this guy turned out.

      He's about a year old now, but hey, I have to start with something here! Happily accepting critique (especially on photographing the finished work!)

      Happy Painting, y'all!

      Looking for suggestion on which of the Bones dragons would be a decent match for the Pathfinder Cloud Dragon for use in the next book of the Giantslayer campaign that I'm currently running. I have maybe a month or two before they encounter this bad beast.  He is considered an Adult dragon, size: Huge.
