I had another series of posts planned, but looks like I need more time (and less Work!) to get those finished up. So, this week I’m wrapping up the rest of my Orktober Orcs instead.
Once again, these are 28mm multipart plastic from the new Oathmark Orcs box.
I tried to follow the same pattern I did with the previous Orcs. Though I found I did a few things differently, even though I didn’t want to. I’m usually pretty good at replicating my steps, but for whatever reason I just couldn’t do the cloth in quite the same way. Though I have a feeling no one will be able to tell once they are all together.
The mud was something I also did a little differently this time around. I added spots of rusty brown, yellow, and darker browns to the undercoat. I think it gave it that nice muddy earth look that I’ve seen when hiking. After a gloss, I think it turned out pretty nice.
I don’t know what it was, but it felt like a slog getting through these last 5 Orcs. I get the feeling that I’m not into painting units as much as I once was. Though each of these is a bit different, so I guess in some ways I’m painting 5 different minis rather than a unit of all the same minis.
This guy was probably my fave of the bunch. I liked his helm, the colors, and that war axe.
And there’s a pic of all the Orcs together. They will certainly make a nice band of evil humanoids for our D&D games!
