Gundabad orcs

 These new additions have been created using the old method of Warlord games orcs and Perry Miniatures arms. In addition to these sets, Oathmark, Games Workshop, Gripping Beast and Fireforge plastics have been used for greater variety. Green stuff furs and tattered cloaks have been made to cover the most crude plastic joins and goblin swords have been stuck on the spear tips, this looks a lot more ‘orcy’ than just spears. I like this look a lot and I think this batch are a big improvement on my older stuff. I may have to go back now and replace some of the spear points with goblins swords as I prefer the effect.

Seeing a large batch like this can be very daunting when it comes to painting them. However I’m going to try a new method. I’m going to pick out twelve of them at a time and paint them in small groups. This way I think I will enjoy it more and see results sooner. Let’s see how it turns out.

I think that is a good plan; I often do the the same. I assemble and prime 30 or so figures and paint them in small batches, usually a half a dozen at a time.

Lovely stuff! I've learned to worry less about painting over the years - there's precious little difference between my "good" painting and my "fast" painting, especially when going for mass effect. Sling those washes, Iron Mitten!
