Orctober Fest

Everyone knows Loki is not known for painting Fantasy stuff right. After all there is a distinct lack of it on the blog save a few Dwarf's and a unit of Gobbos. Well yes and no, you see I like the figures but don't play the game, mainly because I don't have time and prefer historical games. The other major problem is they are not an easy paint, one look at heavy metal painting or golden demons and I am a gibbering wreck I just cant paint to that standard as much as I would like too!!

Now having said all dat dare is a problem coz peeple finks its zombtober and dats plain wrong I tells ya. Every decent being knows dat it's ORCtober, dem dare dead fings aint got da brainz dey was born wiv. So we ave to put a stop to dis stupid zom bizness and sort dem owt!

You can all blame congratulate Sean and Erny for this latest bout of silliness, but I thought what the heck I may as well give it a whirl. Now I will state outright here and now I doubt I will get all 20 of these done, but I have a unit of savage orcs from a while back (dont ask how or why!!) I made a start by trying to get them ranked up and undercoating the things and thats as far as I got in reality as I could not get them to fit together on the 25mm GW bases. Any how all that aside throughout  Orctober I will be painting some savage orcs an will present them as I complete them.

So first up I set about finishing the Big Stabba, this was already a bit further on than the other figures and just needed some finishing highlights and touching up!

  6. So, you're telling us you can't paint elaborate fantasy pieces up to standard? And you want me to believe you? Well I don't, because that is just fantastic! Glad to see you here on the Darkside with me!

    1. I always doubt my ability with the brush, especially when it comes to fantasy, and perhaps I am just too critical. Glad you like it. I will be on the musician and standard bearer next.

  9. That's a great pair of orcs, don't know the model myself but I think even any self respecting giant would think twice if it saw that coming over the hill. Super greens.
