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 dire crocodile, dire boar, and dire crab were one of the Bones 4 addons, and it doesn't look like they've hit retail just yet. Which is a shame, because we need more giant crabs.
       
      The mud on the dire crocodile's base is just some water effect goo dribbled on that half of the base. The barnacles attached to the rocks on the dire crab's base were sculpted with green stuff. The rocks... those are just rocks.

      I'm looking for something to stick Bones, specifically Ma'al Drakar's terrain, to a wooden base. It's not thick enough, at the area I want to place it, to pin effectively.
       
      What kind of adhesives would work? I'm thinking epoxy, maybe? I just /really/ don't want to melt it accidentally and have to buy a new one.

      I just like the way the blue/black wings look.  - I did the same with the Librarian Sophie. (last month)  
      I really need to paint up one of the metal versions for contrast. 
      I'm not sure what she is serving - Meat, bread and salad is the way I painted it, but that could be cake instead.

      Been wanting to paint this one for awhile. Love the dynamic pose! Really happy with this one.
