The Brains and the Brawn

There’s a lot of rank and file painting going on for my Orcs & Goblins and Dwarfs for Warhammer 3rd Edition lately. In-between I also managed to complete the command for my greenskins finally, consisting of an Orc Shaman and an Orc Warlord.

The wizard is the very same I bought in the early 90s (?) as part of the Poly the Wyvern box set. It had base colours on for a couple of decades but only now can be considered finished.

The hero is a new addition but also a vintage model, courtesy of Kev Adams of course. He’s a real brute, with possibly some Black Orc blood in his family tree.

    1. Thank you, it was great bringing them to life. That cloak was actually an easy win, as the sculpting is so three-dimensional that a simple wash of Agrax Earthshade left various depth of colour. I decided not to apply any highlights afterwards so as to not ruin the effect!

    2. … um, got to remember to finish before hitting “post comment.” I also agree that it didn’t really need further highlighting; it works as you did it.
