These Orcs were painted very quickly using a black wash over simple dark colours. The highlights were kept to a minimum as I wanted the Orc host to look like a black shadow going across the land. Being heavily influenced by the recent LOTR films, I kept the colour palette very dark, almost black.
I like the idea of Orcs being a complete rabble so I intend to mix up loads of different figure makes on the bases. I really enjoyed painting these guys and they were so easy compared to the Dwarves. One wash of black and they're done, move on to the next.
