Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So I found these guys at the last NEMPA paint day a I attended a few years back, and decided to paint them up...

I have many other orcs from this line, but not these guys...

I even have the Polly S Armor Dark Green paint I used on the others back in High School!

(I,m class of 1981)

I love this style of orc, it's my favorite. My first group painting project was painting a group of these guys to be generic monsters until I got more painted. I used enamels...

 

Looking forward to seeing the results!

 

I also graduated in 81.

I have all 4 of those guys I painted around 87. I still love that they are anatomically correct. 

 

A few years ago I finished my collection of nearly all of them at an FLGS in Cincinnati when someone decided to liquidate their old collection. So I still have more to paint (not that that's uncommon around here).

 

Thanks for sharing!

So I discovered some things about these guys...

They are NOT Ral Partha!

They are Reaper!

I thought that they were these guys...

Ral Partha 02-077, and that's what I was told they were....

Lost minis doesn't  list the sculptor...

 

also there are 3 of 1 type and 1 of another, all sculpted by Sandra Garrity, the 3 in 1997, the single in 1999! (Look at the bases in the back shots....)

 

so they got the precious Polly S Armor Dark Green skin, WC One Coat Yellow in the eye sockets, SC 75 Black metal Chainmail, SC 75 Decayed metal helmets and greaves. GW Bleached Bone on the bow staves

Now the guys below don't have the bracelet nd their helmets are different...

(One guy used as an example...)

Just some Didi's Black Magic Black Ink mixed with Future and water washed on the chain tonight...

(It takes a while to dry....)

I know it's wrong, but I always think of Amazon warriors due to the cut of their armor....

Leathers done with SC 75 Black leather

(Why S.G> gave them shoes at all, especially something rather complex like Roman Legionnaire's sandals is beyond me...)

Back in the day when the older ones were painted, excempt fore the base and buckles, this guy would have been done....

Well, you would not want them to step on a pebble with their delicate feet, now would you?

Or worse, what if the enemy had put down lego bricks!!!???
