Firstly a troop of converted 6th Ed. Orc Bows; now equipped with choppas and crude shields:
|There's quite a gap there!|
For example, start with a basic green for Orc flesh and paint two orcs with it. Add a drop of brown, mix and paint two more. Add a darker green, mix and paint two more; and so on. Soon you have lots of variety for little effort, also a good range of subdued, muddy, Orcish colours (it also works well as a process for medieval and barbaric types).
Finally a glazed varnish was applied for protection and shading.
Alongside 10 goblin spears also done, this adds about 400 points to my KoW forces - including the Trolls finished a few weeks ago.
I found I had a bigger window than first anticipated, and so there was time to do a few more Orcs, but I'm a mini gamer, we know how we get that way... A new shiny project distracted me.
But that will wait for another day.
