Some old school orcs painted up with the old school inspiration of things like classic AD&D art and The Hobbit cartoon from the '70s. Had a lot of fun with these guys because of their character.
Pic heavy one today as the camera was refusing to focus well on groups for some reason.
I like this guy because he looks nervous.
This guy is one of my favorites because of his dynamic pose.
Another one finished up over the holiday weekend. This is from the second dragon of the month series that Grenadier did and contained a lot of really strange and interesting dragons that I am proud to own. This one came to me without a tongue and with damaged spines. I replaced the tongue but decided I liked the broken spines so I left them that way. I had fun with this. Again , not master work but fun and interesting to do and some day some adventurer is going to get snapped up like a bug from this guy!
With my Cadian army nearly finished and my wife's army at a playable state I decided to take a break from 40k painting. Since I've been painting for our actual armies for so long I decided to start a new WIP thread rather than use my old random projects thread (the "Too Many Projects" thread will be replaced by this one).
But before getting too far ahead I'd like to show everyone just how bad my box got while painting for 40k and killteam. This of course doesn't include any GW boxes I may or may not have on hand to paint "just for fun". I swear I'll paint those Skaven sooner or later.
Though some of the figures were closer to completion, I simply couldn't resist painting one I've had my eye on for months (I mean this quite literally as the figure sat on my lamp's base since I first got it and probably ended up in the background of many of my progress shots). When I first pulled this from a box of goodwill I knew exactly what I wanted to do. This figure just screamed Don Quixote, at least to me it did. So that's exactly how I painted it and though it may just be a simple paint job I'm already thinking about creating a new character just to use it.
Going a little ambitious here as I've never tried doing this many multiples at once. 3 different old school army sets from the 80s and 90s. From front to back we have Grenadier's Orcs of the Severed Hand, Grenadier's Ogres of the East, and some of Ral Partha's Gargantuan Orcz.
The last group is not a complete set, but random picks I got from Iron Winds Metal. Though they're called gargantuan, they're not so much nowadays as can be seen when you compare them to a Bones orc.
Also, as they're random picks, some of them don't have all their parts, like the one above on the left is suppose to have a shield. So big Bones over there made a sacrifice as I actually wasn't too keen on painting him anyway.
And this next guy is a standard bearer, but I don't have the standard. So I put something together with a Reaper Weapons Pack piece and a GW skull.
This is the mermaid from the old Grenadier boxed set #6004, "Monsters of Mythology" from their Fantasy Lords range.
I used to have the set, once upon a time. This was one of my favorite figures from it (though I painted it very differently back in the day and I am pretty sure my memories of how well I painted it are seriously rose-tinted).
There isn't a WIP thread.
And because I do like to play around with photographic backgrounds and water effects:
