they look fantastic, really like the shading and the range of colors on the skin as well as the clothing and armor, excellent palette matching

 

are these still available to purchase or are they OOP?

Cool poses. Great paintjob. For me the skintone are too bright, but this my taste of orcish skin.

 

Some of them certainly photographed much brighter than they look in real life.  Probably a result of the different washes I used on them.  Having said that, I did make a conscious choice to make them pretty green.  I'm exploring different skin tones as I do multiple orc/monster groups.

I'm not sure if Iron Winds is still producing them.  Like I said, though, I always catch them at a con, usually Gen Con, and they've always had them in their mix and match bins.  I know Ral Partha Europe is still selling them. That's what helped me figure out their origin and what parts I needed to replace.

 

The nice thing about them is that even though they're 20+ years old, size wise they stand up to the bigger 25mm-28mm models they sell these days

I understand that. My choice is more to olive green. But your Orcs are quite cool. No matter what skintone they have :poke:

Thanks, i checked out  Iron wind and they sell a couple that look similar in style, might have ot grab the set of 15 for $40. That will be enough ORc's to last a lifetime and pass down to grand kids LOL

   in case your interested, here's one they show close up, not painted  as well as yours.

Sculpted by Tom Meier , i think i see a resemblance to yours no?  They definitely unique to anything else I've seen, and that appeals to me

I'm pretty sure those are a different line of orcs.  Good looking ones, nonetheless.  The ones I painted have derpier faces.  That guy looks meaner.  Ha.

      Good evening my Reaperhoovians!
       
      So just finished up this little blister pack of Shadowrun Elves sculpted by Ral Partha either latter eighties/early nineties, by Dennis Mize.  Two ladies and two gentlemen, challenge as always was figuring out what colors I wanted for them.  Being it's all funky monkey science fictiony, can't help but thinking of a little more lively colors and lively hair colors for the most part.
       

       
      and I figured the last figured I'd do as a Drow, no idea if there are any Drow in Shadowrun but painting's not solving world peace or saving lives, so even if there are no Drow in Shadowrun, nobody will lose a finger.
       
      And here's the group as it's all together:
       

       
      I wanted them to fit all in one page so I didn't put them on bases, and I painted the rim black, and I can see a little bit of irregularities on that.  Not sure if I may eventually actually either repaint the base or actually put them on bases so they don't fall over.  The biggest problem is after I take them off their temporary base, I don't want to touch them and that's where it all gets tricky.
       
      Anyhow, a problem for later, hope you enjoy these in the meantime!

      Back on my PC I can upload the final shot of the mounted knight Lucardus von Kemet. Because he is a famous character in the world of The Dark Eye, I put a sign on his base to give his name clearly to everyone. As a leader of the Undead and user of dark powers I gave him a look similiar to his underlings. He is a desperate man who wields war in the name of his demonic mistress. Painting process is in the wip forum.

      A few years ago (hmmm…2015), Iron Wind Metals did a Kickstarter for a Chaos Wars revival. The first two armies featured were orcs and elves. I got most of my compact orcish army painted a while back, but was looking at a new set of rules last week (Fantastic Battles).  I needed at least one more leader stand to use my Chaos Wars orcs, and I knew that I had a few orc leaders from that Kickstarter I hadn’t finished.  Happily, I was even able to find them among my boxes of primed figures on sticks.

      Hello all you Reaper Acolytes!
       
      So painted this one as a gift for a friend, now that she's got it, can finally show it off:
       

       
      A Thumper Standard Bearer,  I think sculpted by Richard Kerr.  
       
      It was so hard not go go all crazy Easter Bunny on this one, so added a few Easter eggs, quite literally.  Hopefully his banner is legible!
       
      After listening quite often and watching Anne Forester's Twitch channel, one great tip she gave was to start with your free hand using a white base instead of black.  I did so this time, so hopefully the banner text and the belt are a bit brighter than they otherwise would have been had I used a black base color.  
       
      Anyhoos, enjoy and a premature Happy Easter to all!

      Good afternoon my Reapergogglians!
       
      So just finished up Ann Penchyk, a Shadowrun character apparently (don't know too much about Shadowrun still, after months and months of painting different Shadowrun figures.
       
      I really dig this little blister pack, where we have Ann dressed in her corporate 9-5 job, and then the another version of her, the "adventurer" version of her.  So with that in mind, I at least tried to keep her skin tones, hair color, et cetera the same so it looks like she just might be the same gal in different attire.
       
      9-5 Ann:


       
      and how she spends her time Shadowrunning on the weekend:
       

       
      and here they are together, side by side:
       

       
      This is the first Shadowrun orc I've painted and from what I could tell with all the other artwork I've found on line, Shadowrun orcs can be any normal person's skin color, so even though I thought it was a bit strange, I painted her starting out with Tanned Highlights and worked up and down from there instead of doing some type of green base.
       
      So ta-ta for now, hope you enjoy!
