Orrrcs! 

 

I got two reaper army packs of these bad boys, and they look awesome.  One pack, 06015, only had the two Sandra Garrity orcs and not the two Bob Olley ones.  Their fantastic customer service has already sorted this out for me, so a Bones orc of the same type is standing in as a stunt double to show the other one that comes in the pack while his compatriots travel by mail. 

 

But these six funtime fellows are getting some paint, and I've been looking forward to this!

Even though there's six of these guys, only three are different so unless something unusual happens I'll just show three until they're all done.

I didn't bother taking pics of the primer stage, so this is my black wash to bring out the details so I can paint 'em.

I'm really digging the skintone you're using.

 

You mean the Bob Olley stand-in?  That's the old skin recipe, I've come up with a fresh one along the same lines to try out with these new guys.

 

 

so building an Orc raiding party or army.....

 

Is this the muscle Goblins hire to do their dirty clean work?

 

You need a few with at least basic self-preservation instincts.

So this guy is the only one done yet, but since he's got the most skin I figured he'd show the new mix pretty well.

 

The old mix was 3 parts old pro paint Ghoul Grey to 1 part OPP Imperial Purple.  Which was a pretty nice scheme.

 

But when I was looking for my notes on that old formula last night, it hit me to try OPP Night Sky in place of the purple and see which I liked better.  I only used 2 Ghoul Grey to 1 Night Sky in this batch.  Mixed both up, looked at them, and decided the new way was the clear winner. 

 

At least so far.  We'll see what it turns out like with layering.

Normally when I do a batch I work all of them up to the same step before proceeding... but in this case, as I don't know this experiment will work (I think it will, though), it might be wiser to do this guy's skin first and make sure of it.  If it doesn't work, less I'll have to fix.  So that'll be my main task today.

Hmmm, looks like this one is related to the Blue Goblins???

It looks like it will work out okay.  It was surprisingly difficult to layer with this bottle of old pro paint orc flesh, not sure why it was badly behaved today.  Usually it's pretty good.  But, it did the job. 

 

I also painted some other bits, just to check that it worked with my planned colour scheme.  All hail Proto-Orc!

      Hello everyone, something different today. Because adventurers also need a reward, here are pictures of 02313, Treasure Hoard (third from the set) sculpted by Bob Olley.

      Continuing with the random minis for now: Cavalry.

      Bones Cavalry that is. Over the course of 4 delivered kickstarters of Bones models, Reaper has released a total of 9 mounted models. (11 if you count the flying saucer from the Bones 2 Chronoscope Expansion and the chopper bike mounted Sophie (the one and only Bones KS model delivered in metal!) in the first Bones kickstarter.)

      Well, "mounted" is also a theme to use to get something painted, isn't it? And with 9 or 11 models to go for, it should be possible to get done in a timely manner.
      Here are the first pair of them that I have painted up.


      lots of pics beneath the

      Just pulled these out of the drawer.  One of these Orcs was next in line on the Bones I Kickstarter Rewards image, so I’ll try to squad-paint them together to save time. They have been cleaned of mold lines.  The spearman’s spear was very bent, as was the great sword.  So, those got weapon swapped with basic weapons from Bones 3.  Those are darker grey.  Washed them, so just waiting for them to dry.  Also had to gap fill spearman’s wrists.

      This is my summer exchange mini for Rainbow Sculptor.  The marching orders were for Bones and something witchy.  I have fallen out of favor with Bones, but Bones Black seems better so I ordered a few of those.  In the end I went with the shaman.  On one hand the fabric was just a large block of color that needed broken up, but on the other the contours made it difficult to do anything too fancy.  Thus she ended up with a simple pattern that I could manage to get into the folds of the fabric.  The skin was mixed from 09658 Christmas Wreath and 09694 Retro Emerald, just because I'd never used them.
