Here are the dipped figures, still shiny from their Dark tone dip. Six a day for the past week or so has seen me race through this unwashed horde. They are mostly converted plastic figures but the new Raknorok figures have also been thrown into the mix. There are also three Orcs from Black Tree, but these took so long to arrive they will be the last ones from there.
This morning, armed with a big brush, I set about matt varnishing the mob. Once they are all based, I will give their armour and weapons a kick of Kleer floor varnish to give them a sheen.
They are quite a motley crew but should all blend together once based.
The standards have many sharp teeth gnashing on a black field, this is meant to represent the hundreds of sharp pikes of the assualt columns.
The green stuff helmets turned out good once dry brushed and ink washed, they should add some nice variety into the warbands.
The blue brush bristle is now well and truly a wip. This was so easy to do, it's a shame I don't need more of them.
I think they all go well together once mixed up, the more crazy faces in the crowd the better for Orcs I say. These were designed to be a pike armed force, but it will be interesting to see how the bases turn out now the Ragnarok Miniatures have been added.
Elf down! What can one do against such numbers?
No man gets left behind...looking in the bag I found this poor chap had been forgotten. Well, not for long, he'll soon be happily under the lash with his friends.
