Thanks.  Once my eyes adjusted to the scale, I had a good time painting them and I'm happy with how they turned out.

 

 

I managed to play one 1000 pt game before leaving for vacation.   As usual I completely forgot to take any photos.  Then again the way the battle went for my dwarves, did I really want to keep a record?

 

After laying out the play area both my friend and I were pretty well convinced that we had got something wrong since it looked impossibly small.  But yeah, it turns out that these guys don't take up much room.  The orcs aren't easy to distinguish from the back so we talked about perhaps labeling the back of the units.  

 

Here is a pic of both armies (a bit over 2000pts each) in one plano box:

I brought this set to the beach and you can see some mid battle shots in the Kings of War thread.  

  

The results of these beach games was that my nephew decided that "his" dwarves needed some more firepower.  Since almost immediately after the beach vacation I had to run out to my brothers house for a good 5 days of babysitting I took the opportunity to bring some gunner dwarves and slightly higher quality brushes so my nephew could paint them.

Not bad, in my unbiased opinion.  He said that it was fun but that he thought painting 28's was better.  To be fair that was pretty much my opinion after painting my first unit of 10mm dwarves.  It grows on you.

      Another 7 days KS by Medusa Minis. I have been quite happy with their previous campaigns. 9 pounds for the whole set or 25 if you missed the previous orc sets.

      Looking quite good! I'm backing for the character set.

      Slightly delayed to finish, and even more delayed to post to the forums, are my usual themed miniatures from November: Dwarves!

      Beardy folk seem most appropriate for No-Shave November.

      Redcaps pretending to be Dwarves from Massive Darkness



      A Duergar Trapper from Stonehaven Miniatures



      The Dwarf King from the small release "The Dwarf King's Court, Revisited" by Colin Dixon Miniatures



      A Warhammer Dwarf Miner where I think I remembered how flames work:

      The only beardless member, SKU 77413: Margara, Dwarf Shaman




      SKU 77572: Dwarf Master of the Hunt.  Jason Wiebe always manages to hide fun details: I hadn't realized his jacket was a dragonskin and not just armor plates until I was almost done and wound up painting it to match.

      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.

      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.
