Norsgard Fallen Orc

Recommended Posts

It has been a while since I have painted a miniature. I did not afford myself the time and energy because of issues (family, work, life, etc). Why did I want to grow up again? I made up excuses and reasons and I'm just sick and tired of that BS. Excuses and lying to myself will not allow me to succeed in life and I'm beginning to find my balance again. Oops, beginning to ramble, so here's the model I'm going to be working on:

Several firsts for this guy:

1) Never painted a resin figure

2) Never painted a multi-part figure

Norsgard Miniatures. I can't tell if the manufacturer is still active.  They ran two kickstarters and they have a website, but their forums is dead and there are no dates on their website to tell if they are still fulfillimg orders.

Make sure to wash it with a detergent, release agents from resin repell paint.

Cut mold lines with a knife, when using a file, wear a dust mask.

 

Have fun...

Could only find my Reaper Grey Primer, so let's see how that goes. I thinned mine 5 drops to 1 drop water and looks to have covered the miniature just fine.

Applied 09401: Dragon Red to body for shading and 09082: Jungle Moss to the skirt.

Strange, I thought I posted the continuation of last night's session. I decided to flip the two colors and I'm liking how the green appears over the red skin.

Went over some upper portions with 09297: Adonese Green.

I'll have to dig through my paints for brighter greens for highlighting.

      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.

      The third set of humanoids from the Lost Valley Expansion of the Bones 4 kickstarter is the Orcs of the Jade Fire tribe:

      Featuring an all-female cast of hard bodied primitives, with abs to break rocks on and buns of bronze. The barbaric splendor of these women rival that of the bodybuilder cast of any 80's Sword and Sorcery movie. Apart from the fact that said 80's movies usually feature male bodybuilders with any females being more of the centrefold variety both in body type and costume budget.
      The burning question would be: what do the male members of the Jade Fire Tribe look like? Do they have the physique of Steve Rogers before or after the serum was administered? Or are they more like bloated ant drones that barely can move while the womenfolk do all the work? Inquiring minds want to know!

      The skin is Citadel Contrast Space Wolves Grey over a greyish white on black zenithal undercoat. Look closely and you will see the spatter pattern a slightly bent airbrush needle tip will leave...I need to buy myself a proper one, the cheap chinese ebay ones I have been using are really not very good at all. Good thing the Vex is coming.

      aka She-Hulk.  Also the one model in all of the Lost Valley with blatantly metal-looking parts.
       
      44096 Jade Fire Champion #636

       
      44095 Jade Fire Warrior #635

      Thirty Five dollars and a six-pack to my name! Time to break out that old Black Flag album again.
       
      44094 Jade Fire Spearman #634

      Either the naming of the Bones version of this mini is a bit off  (especially since the metal version is called "Spearmaiden") or this one has the worst case of Moobs I have seen since Meat Loaf's character in Fight Club.
       
       

      Look, it's the stripper! Wheeee!
