Jasper paints some Orcs

Recommended Posts

Was cataloging my Reaper paints the other day and noticed I had a bottle of Green Black.  I couldn't remember using it for anything (or even when I got it) but I liked the look of the colour and thought it might work well for some Orcs, which is would also be a good excuse to get back into painting some fantasy stuff.  So I grabbed a handful out of the big bin of Bones Orc goodness and away we go.




I plan to put gaming bases on do the broccoli got lopped off.  This actually slowed me down a couple of days as I snapped what turned out to be my last #11 cutting Kavorgh's base, and it took a couple of days to get over to the mall to get more.  




And with a coat of Grey Liner.  The little guy was my test of Green Black over Black Primer to see how it looked.

Did some basecoating on the marauder last night (and cleaned up a few bad mold lines on others that I didn't see until I linered them).




First time I thought to take a picture.  For my own reference, skin is MSP Green Black.  Metal was based in Vallejo Model Air Black.  Leathers were HS Ruddy Brown.  Fur was HD Griffon Tan (might be a little light, we'll see after washes.....).




And after a whole lot of P3 Pig Iron to get a base down for the metals.


Next will likely be some tidying and then a whole lot of washes....unless I decide to change some of the metals before washes....

Oh and I need to go back and fix up his boots.  Was getting tired and got a bit carried away with the metals there.

Slack, both in getting painting done and posting updates when I do.....


Did some work the other night:



An AP Dark Tone (so black) wash on most of our painted guy.  And did a base coat on the flesh of the rest.



Took today off as there are plans, and got some painting in this morning.




A few more washes on our test subject.  And did the black (for under metal) on the other 5 and the Ruddy Brown bits on two of them.

Got some more done on the marauder this morning.




The main thing left to do is highlight his skin.  


I also finished the ruddy brown on the others.  I need to bring a bunch of browns home from work on Monday for other bits...

Having realized that I need THREE more figures done by the end of the month to keep my RPChallenge streak alive, I put the push on last night to finish the base coats on two more, despite being really tired.  I made it to here before I decided I was doing more harm than good.




The plan is to get the base coats finished up and all the washes done tonight.  Then maybe start on highlights for everything but the skin on these two.  Once they are caught up to the marauder I'll do the skin of all three at once.  Bases are waiting until all 6 are done, but they aren't required for the RPChallenge anyway :)

Hey look, I actually found half an hour to sit and paint last night!




Just picked out some colours for base coats for leathers and furs.  I struggle with that a bit, but they generally seem to come out ok in the end.

So the stalker's red browns are pretty close to the ruddy leather, but hopefully they will be different enough after.

And The sniper's leather is very light, but should be ok once I dirty it up.  Trying a grey fur on him.


Need some fur practice, want to paint up some anthro figs soon...

      The dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      So, a coworker and fellow painter gave me a bunch of unwanted Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire minis, so uh... Guess that's mostly what you guys will be seeing from me in the near future!
      As I'm just naturally inclined to orcs, and these guys look absolutely awesome, I painted Ironskull's Boyz first. Also, finally got my hands on some premade washes, so I ditched homemade watered down paints on these. Personally, I think it made 'em look pretty good!

      The number of ants that tried to photobomb this shot was ridiculous.
      The lighting on the individual shots was being weird, so sorry if some are darker and other lighter!

      Hadn't seen this here yet:

         You enter the cavern with water dripping down from overhead. The smell of rotten meat is thick in the air. From up ahead in the distance you hear the loud battle cry of your enemy SQUEEEEEEE! 
      Painted by Ben Rodman      Pig faced orcs.  The most iconic encounter of any classic adventure. We have a nice variety of these little oinkers in the pen.
      We enlisted the help of Bobby Jackson to sculpt the porcs and Jason Wiebe for all the pork besties. They did an awesome job.
      Fortress Figures will be casting these beauties up in lead free white metal. 
      Any support for our small family owned business is greatly appreciated.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.
