77059: Orc Berserker

Recommended Posts

I bought this guy as the model for one of my players. I haven't decided what I'm doing with the base yet (other than "I'm going to do something with the base" - I boiled it into shape before painting but after I had paint all over the model it decided to curl up and get wobbly again) but the rest of it is starting to take shape. I decided to go with the dark elf triad for skin colour, just because it seemed like fun.

 

Here are pics:

I know I need to work on the highlights on the leather parts (especially on the lower body) and fix a few goofs with the metallic paint... Aside from that, what would you folks suggest? Anything I've done wrong, anything you think I've done particularly well? I'm guessing the eyes don't fall into that last category... ::P: But I'm making progress! I'd personally be quite happy with him as is (well, with the base & touch-ups) as a pretty decent tabletop model, but I know that a lot of you have higher standards than that :;): and I'd love to get to that point. So... yeah. Tell me where I can do better!

      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.

      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.

      Converted this one by using an avatars of war pit fighter body and added some greenskins bits (sword, head, etc) and greenstuff. Painted him to be used as an orc boss in my orc warband. Hope you like him!
