Very cool!

 

What did you use for the skin?

 

I was afraid someone would ask me that....I couldn't find my note sheet which is apparrently a message to clean my hobby room.

I like your choice of skin tone for the orc!  I will have to keep this in mind as I work on orcs in the future.

Nice, and so good to see a not-green Orc.

I like the color too and When I got into this hobby in the early '80's orcs and goblins were not all green. 

 

Now to find the recipe for the rest of the Tre Manor orcs.

 

Thanks for the responses Paintybeard, Coydt, and Glitterwolf.

I like this yellow ocher / brown color scheme and I am definitely going to , erm, borrow it for some of my orcs, when it is their turn on the painting table

So I realize I promised to list the recipe some time back....well I haven't been able to find it in my mass of hobby mess. BUT here is the wip where I started painting it and it shows how ugly the skin was at the start. http://www.coolminiornot.com/forums/showthread.php?50056-KruleBear-s-WIP-WIP&p=817076&viewfull=1#post817076

      Painted this guy in an aquatic theme.

      This is the bones version of 3761, and I think it has not made it into the store yet.  I painted it like a big orc, or like the title says, half-ogre/half-orc.  I don't normally paint blood, but this guy needed a little extra to emphasize how mean he is.

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Or, as I like to call him, Smaul Hollywood.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂
