Orcs! [BESM: The Slayers d20]

Recommended Posts

Oh, and just so everyone is tracking: defense bonus does not stack with armor.

Not sure what this means. Is defense bonus something a character would have -?- because dexterity is high?

It's described on pg100 of the rules.  Each class has a base defense bonus listed in their write-up.  For example, a 5th level bandit has a defense bonus of +5.  He can run around without armor and get that bonus or he could wear some leather armor and get its bonus, but not both.  Some classes such as Master-at-Arms have a class feature that lets them retain some portion of their defense bonus even while armored.

Okay, something that I neglected to mention: Encumbrance. I'm going for a slightly fantastical encumbrance system: If it fits, it ships. (In other words, if I think you're carrying too much, I'll tell you that you're slowed down by all your gear. If I don't tell you that, you don't have to worry about encumbrance.)

Okay, I'm a little confuzzed. Where do I find the strength attack modifier? And the size attack modifier? There's like, a bazillion little boxes and I can only find a few things to fill them with  :wacko:

The strength attack modifier is your strength bonus. There's a table near the front of the PHB, if you don't know what your abillity score bonuses are. Orcs are medium, so no size modifier. (It's the base size with a -1 for every size larger, and a +1 for every size smaller than medium you go.)

I rolled a DnD 5e character for the first time on Sunday. Took forever but I am understanding the basics better. RE-filling out the sheet to look cleaning and make corrections. I will send you a new one shortly.

      I'm a little late in posting these, but this year I made a concentrated effort to try to paint orcs and only orcs for October, both to participate in the loose ceremony of "Orctober" and because I really need to finally paint some Orcs for the table. I started out trying some contrast paint for the first time and I didn't really like how the skin tone came out on the first model so I started experimenting. I tried many combinations of basecoat colors, thinning the contrast paint, inks, highlighting and glazing, and different washes. Not all of these even look that different, but I enjoy the subtle variations going on in the theory that, like humans, not all orcs are going to look exactly the same. It was fun experimenting, and I'm looking forward to painting the rest of the Orc crew next year.

      Individual pics with the different skin tone recipes I tried below:

      I had a little bit of time on Saturday to continue with my Prince August orcish warband (guess it’s an Orctober surprise), finishing some speedy work on three figures.  All three of these are from Prince August mold #655.

      I had never successfully cast these figures before this summer, so I was interested to see that the face designs on the shields are just the sort of thing I freehand onto flat orc shields.
      That brings me up to nine, but I’m going to need three or four more to field a 300 point warband for A Song of Blades and Heroes.  The real use of home cast figures is to provide bulk at low costs rather than individual skirmish game show pieces, and these guys are likely to be eventually subsumed into larger units.  After priming I found a few places where I could have done a better job cleaning up mold lines and such.  
      The fourth figure is a Prince August human barbarian from earlier in the summer, just to show the relative scale of the orcs against the humans.

      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
