The soft facial detail frustrated me as well when I painted mine up. I really like the purple in the shadows. Makes for a nice contrast.

Nice lil band of Orcs. Yeah I end up rushing on bones quite often, cause it's sometimes, not bad, but sometimes the softness of details doesn't make them very enjoyable to paint. Not always - just some of them.

Nice orcs!  I just finished up these 5 last week, too.  Gotta take a picture and update my WIP.

Very nice. Really like the skin tone. Yea I noticed that the 3 you mentioned seemed different that the others. Similar but still quite different. But I guess people can look quite different as well. Either way the guy with the sword was my favorite to paint and turned out the best for me, and it looks like he turned out the best for you as well.

Overall they look good, though the leader's lips look a bit "cartoony", specifically the cartoons they don't show anymore IYKWIM.  :ik_oops:

      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?

      Hi!  I'm brand new to the hobby and stumbled across the forums, so I thought I'd share my first WIP photos.  I started playing in my first DnD campaign in December and the other players painted their own player character minis, which made me want one of my own (and one for my husband, who also plays in the same campaign.)  I snagged the two LTPKs then started watching all the videos I could find on mini painting.  I have no background in art/painting so it has been refreshing to give it a shot!  However I am also in the rabbit hole now of wanting all the colors, basing supplies, tools.... lol.
       
      The minis in this kit are:
      77018 Skeleton Archer
      77042 Orc Marauder
      77148 Mangu Timur
       
      I pretty much followed the book for how to paint the skeleton archer.  The main differences being that I ordered the kit of Citadel washes after seeing so much praise for them, and I used a few slightly different paint shades (like dragon bronze for the metal bits instead of blade steel.)  I still need to base him (cover that mold line between his feet!) but otherwise I'm pretty happy with him for being my first mini - he could use some weathering and higher contrast, but I sealed him before learning about weathering and the benefits of exaggerated contrast.
       

       
      My current WIP is the orc.  I still have to do some highlighting passes because I don't think I've got enough contrast in the skin yet.  I need to highlight the metal as well (haven't done that yet.)  I'd like to attempt some weathering on the leather to make it look more worn, and try my hand at rust on the metal bits.  I'm pretty happy with how my attempt at making the shield look wooden turned out (thanks YouTube!)  I also found an oval base I might try to base him on since it fits his wide pose, but he'll be pretty big for using on a standard tabletop grid.
       

       
      Haven't touched the Mangu Timur model yet!  I also need to get a better setup for photos, I was having trouble getting decent shots of these guys.  

      I appreciate your thoughts on my work so far, thank you!  I'm excited to join in.

      I was using this to try a different skin color which I like and I believe I was going to do a bit more detailed TMM but got side tracked. After several months of no work on him, I decided to get him "done" to tabletop level. Here are some shaky iPad photos. C&C welcome.
