But I still love Orcs and thanks to Erny (http://ernysplace.blogspot.co.uk/) I've been given a good opportunity to do break out my greenskin recipe. Here's Spike the Feared that I used to have in my army and which I have just finished painting:
As you can see, I'm a fan of the muted tan/green colour skin. I start with a graveyard earth brown, then a brown ink wash, followed by multiple layers of the base brown and increasing amounts of rotting flesh to highlight. A few green ink glazes to finish.
Here's two more classic Orcs that will soon be joining him in what will be a small warband of 6 to add to my Lost and The Damned retinue table challenge (D6 Orcs):
As I mentioned, I do have a history with my Orcs, some of you may be familiar with my second Orc and Goblin army that I completed some years ago and which won me several best army awards:
But now I'm all Oldhammery I'm sticking with lead Orcs from the 80's. Any suggestions for my other 3 Orc warriors for the warband? I'm thinking at least 1 bow armed Orc?
