David's Chainmail Orc Druid

Recommended Posts

I picked up my Orc Druid from e-bay, and he arrived already sort of painted.

So into the paint stripper he went, and on the other side came out looking much better!

And then tonight he got painted with brush on primer.

For the most part he's a well sculpted mini, though there is a mold line running across the skull on the staff, and then down the staff and across his right hand. The other big on is on the underside of his left arm. The worst bit to get is between the straps on the back of the staff

 

Talking tonight with the Knarthex, Dilvish, and CW about skin tones, I think I'm gonna try to match the blue I used for the Black Orcs from Bones 1.

Nice plan. Is he a lot smaller than those orcs?

Not really. I'll take a picture tonight. The face is radically different, but the size works just fine.

His face is different because he is old and steeped in the ways of evil.....

 

either that or to much tofu...

Not much progress tonight because of D&D. Mostly slapping some blue to test for skin tone against the other black orcs I've painted. This is Void Blue. Might be a bit lighter than I'm looking for, but I can darken it up.

The fur was heavy dry brushed with Ebony Flesh/Linen White, the teeth and bone got Dirty Bone, and the leather got Tanned Leather

Nice work!

 

I will say this to all the folks painting this guy....

Do all of your work on his skin, at least his arms, and seal it before doing the scars...

and have the eraser brush handy....

      Hi everyone, I was recently sorting through old pictures and came upon some interesting ones. I think I never posted this one.
      It's a Wizards of the coast Chainmail CM88705, Gnoll Trooper. I probably painted this it in 2006. I thought some of you might like to see it.
      Anyone knows who sculpted this model?

      Wizards of the Coast, Chainmail Miniatures Drazen’s Horde faction 88361, Ogre Trooper.
      This 42mm tall pewter model was sculpted by Mike McVey and I painted it with acrylics and inks.

      This is an old wizard figure from the ChainMail game. I'm including him as part of my Morihalda Challenge; he was already painted, but I did some touch ups, and based him. I was having a bad day, but didn't want to break my streak, so I needed something quick and easy.
       
      Still trying to get the hang of playing with my wife's light box; he's a little washed out.

      Here's an effort I made at painting this orc.  I've only been painting three weeks so I am open to help/comments. I added some Welsh slate to the base.   Took some inspiration from an artist called slashhamster.  Thanks

      Not much progress so far. Washed, and hot glued to cork. I didn't check for mold lines before I started slopping brown liner on him, so I finished, then removed mold lines, then touched up the paint. His shield wasn't well attached, so I just pulled it off. That'll make him easier to paint anyway.
