Posted the first four of this set in the Orctober topic, but in the mean time I've painted two more. The intention is to paint the whole set (35 figures), so now and then there will be an update of this topic.

The following figure is only once in the set, and is painted with GW Kislev flesh and a sepia wash.

Next one is again with a green skin.

And to have them all in the same topic, the other four from the Orctober topic:

Stay calm, Peter, I like them a lot. Great work. :thumbup:

I also have those figures, but they're waiting to be part of a Lord of the Rings diorama in a very far and uncertain future. :mrgreen:

They look great. Nice experiments with different "orcish" skintones...At the beggining I was too much for hard Green, but then I moved to kaki tones...I think they fit a little more "convincing" and movés a little from "extrem Fantástic ir cartoonish"

Do not worry about posting Orctoberfest items now..Any month im the year is good for orcs in order to have another Orctoberfest!!!

Very nice, I can see the Warhammer-esque skin tones for the last few minis, but I like the more tan colour on the first one too. I used to do hard green as well, but I've gone to more khaki like carlos, more natural IMO.

Thanks Mai, Santi, Carlos and Owen for your nice and constructif comments! :thumbup:

@Santi: one day I buy those Elfs to. And I can't wait to see what you will make of that diorama. ;-)

@Carlos and Owen: after this set I might paint the rest of the first set to. And I will try some other skintones to. I have seen some nice examples on Pinterest of how others painted their Orcs. ;-)

Well, it seems that retirement suits you... you're painting better and better.
Or you've always been good painter but your photography skills improved :D

Been thinking about some reinforcements for my old Mithril orcs, but I think it is very very good idea to just relax and let other people buy and paint and show these here! Very nice to see those! And I agree with Dali about retirement! Or it is the dog, you are always better with a dog! :-D I know that there is a very small tiny diference in size!

Hi Peter,
really nice paintjob, i prefer grreeeene skintone for Orcs, but that first one looks good, too.
Last two pics are a little bit to dark, would be nice to have some better pics.
