'Well guys da boss has made me show you some of da boyz like so you's don't go trespassing in our territories. Though if ya wanna I'm sure we can organize a krumping.'

Well guys this is my plog for the other half of my greenskin addiction; my fantasy orcs. I basically bought a whole tonne of orc boyz (bought three or four of the boxes before the number in them was cut in half) so I have about 100 of them to paint up along with several characters and I need to repaint a unit of Black Orcs (or rather finish them up).

Anyway I'm going for a whole disparate tribe sort of look where all the boyz have been integrated from beaten tribes rather than having units follow a overall theme. This I think makes for a more believable orc army than a regimented and unified look and will hopefully stop me getting bored as I can just mix it up a bit and try something new.

So yer that's the idea for the whole army. Unfortunately I only have a few models painted up at the moment (Well ok, I have quite a few painted up but as my style has finally developed to a point where I think I'm really happy with going ahead and trying to paint everything they look a bit stupid stood next to the new guys and way to bright and clean.).

Anyway here's the photo's I have so far for you.

One of the finished Black Orcs (though I need to repaint the base trim). I've got 19 more of these guys that need the edging done on the armour and highlights everywhere else and unlike everything else in the army they have a unified blood covered look to represent them being Black Orc's and more disciplined.

Now for the rank and file (all three of them). Not much but shows how I'm going for a real mixed and random approach. These are all from the same unit and yes I know their all differently armed. The plan is to have a large amount of them armed with one hand weapon and knife or shield and then have the rest armed with two hand weapons or spears. This way I can have the unit and run them as all the options just shove all the guys with the right armament to the front and the rest to the back. Obviously I plan on running them as hand weapon and shield most the time but I like to have the option and it shouldn't present to much of a problem unless I play a real WYSIWYG stringent person.

Also shown is the standard which I'm currently painting alongside the shot gun ork for my Nob army in 40k. I think i still need to bloody the standard up a bit as it looks a bit clean still but we'll see.

Now before I post this I would liek to say that the splatters on the standard are meant to be blood not fire which is kind of what they look like in the photo.

Also I've done a skin recipe for the standard guy in case anyone is interested.

Skin
Base: Gretchin Green
Wash: Green
Layer: Gretchin Green
Layer: Camo Green
Highlight: Nugling Green/Desert Yellow
Highlight: As above w/ Bleached Bone


There you all go hope you enjoy and that its in the right place (please feel free to move it mods if its not).

Very nice detailing. I especially like the lad with the spear....that "weave" work on his back is outstanding. :thumbs

Beautiful work - but this belongs in the Fantasy section, so I'll move this over there for ya.
So - whenever dem doks finish staplin' yer arms back on Haky, why don't you an yer boyz come down fer a visit. We'll 'av a few squigaritas, throw a few grots around an' discuss who dis 'ere choppa really belongs to...

These Waaaghs are a cross between a mass migration, holy crusade, looting party and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure.

You know Nosher's MO, anything he paints blue is automatically his.

Silverback: Thanks

ridin_shotgun: Thanks and I wasn't sure whether they went over there or over here as I couldn't see any project logs in the Shaman's Cave. Turns out I got it wrong lol but it's moved now so all's good.

Zagursnik: Thanks and I'm glad the tartan effect worked. There's another attempt in this update too.

Nosher:
Thanks and cheers for moving it. Wasn't sure where it was meant to go.



Update Time:

'Ere's another update for youz lot.'



Just another small update for you all. Now regarding the standard although I was happy with it it didn't have the feel I wanted it to have. The idea is that it was meant to be made from skin but the original didn't look like this . So I tried to rectify it and redo it to look like it was made up of lots of different skins but it looked really disjointed and not very nice. It would also have been really hard to replicate the effect on my already painted Black orc Banner which I don't want to damage the freehand on. As such I went back to a single skin colour but tried to make it look like it was made up of several pieces.

Below is the result of these attempts as well as another updated boy to join them making that six models all finished so far and my recipe for the rusty armour as requested on the Warseer forums.

Update Time:

'Right now you'z lot has had all dat turkey like time to get back to krumping dings.'



Well got a bit done since last time I've updated this thread so thought it was time I did a new one. The boys unit is coming along well and I've only got four more boys to touch up (plus 16 black orcs) before I can start working from plastic up. Planning on painting up 20 boys before I move onto the Black Orcs properly.

Anyway speaking of the Black Orcs here's the updated banner bearer to bring him more into line with the new one for the standard boys (as in knitted skin). Had to be a bit careful however as I didn't want to have to redo the freehand this time as it was a bit more complex than the crossed swords.

Anyway here he is with the rest of the Black Orcs.

Now that's out of the way here's some of the new regular boys as well as a shot of the whole unit. Finally have the first legal fully painted unit.

Night goblin themed orc for no reason other than it was a Warhammer specific design rather than the middle ages approach I was going for (Celtic, viking etc) and I wanted a few mixed into the other guys. Plus I like the shield design.
