77019: Orc Swordsman

Recommended Posts

This is what I'm working on at the moment. I had to start over a few time due to issues with the sculpt. Before I even got started I had to, well I didn't have to but I chose to, fix some of the more obvious problems with the sculpt using Apoxie Sculpt. Some of the mail had no detail at all, so I add it in, and there were some just terrible mold lines. I finally just decided to say forget it and move on with the painting. I was going for more of a grey skin, but ended up with a greener skin. I'm ok with where it's going, but on the next Orc I'll adjust the skin tone. Sorry the pics are a bit wonky.

Initial work on the mail. You probably can't tell it, but there are 7 different colors there :P.

I really dig some of the old-school style orc sculpts by Bob Olley and Sandra Garrity. This guy just oozes White Box cool.

 

If you don't mind me asking, what colors/paints did you use for the skin? It might not have been what you were going for, but I think it turned out great.

Primed with Stynylrez green then did a zenithal with Stynylrez white. Base coated with Clouded Sea ( I think it may be discontinued). Highlights are Lichen Green, Fair Skin, and Snowdrift white. Shadows are Liquitex Artist Color Dioxazine Purple.

Maille finished. Nine colors layered or glazed. I took longer than I probably should have, but some of the details are a little squidgy on the armor.

The hilt and scabbard are taking me a lot longer than they should. Metallics not wanting to cooperate. Lots of back and forth.

Just seeing this for the first time. Man, I dig that skin! Nice work going in on the strap, too.

Funnily enough the skin was an accident. I was trying for a much darker grey skin tone, but after playing with colors this is what happened.

      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.

      Thirty Five dollars and a six-pack to my name! Time to break out that old Black Flag album again.

      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!
      These minis were completed August 4th 2020

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      This was a fun sculpt - orange octopus definitely inspired by others :)

      Got this guy in my Bones Paint & Take Home Survival Kit earlier this year.  He was done with lots of sloppy washes and dry brushing. I put flock on its exposed twigs, for decency's sake.
