Warhammer Quest Orcs, look’s like meat’s back on the menu tonight!

No sooner have I showcased my new Warhammer Quest Project Orcs, they are already pummelling unfortunate stunties.. the new Orcs are set loose! (pending themed bases)

“Dat’s stunties for starta’s now dem’ Umies next! Warrgh!”
Orcs in Quest
I painted them with classic skin tones, but tried something new with the armor and leathers. I based everything with Charadon Granite, then used that as a base mix for any brown or other colour I applied after. It worked a treat in keeping the scheme simple and unified. The metals were Chainmail with Devlan wash.



Few more touches here and there, but largely they’re done :)

..now for eight more!

    Cheers guys, I think the main thing I’m going for is an Orc that sits (stoops?) more comfortably in the realm of Suspended Disbelief.

    A GW orc is overly comical, this I think finds a nice common ground. Admittedly it is interesting to change perceptions on what an Orc is; considering I’ve been hobbying in GW realms for 15yrs.

    More soon, kicked off a lot of ideas whilst trialling this build.

    Nothing makes me happier than orc stomping stuntes.

    I love your work on these. Your additional sculpting gives them a life of their own, very creative and original. Thanks for your comments and I look forward to checking out your work frequently!

    Thanks Benvolio :)

    More soon; awaiting a eBay win of Mantic goodies shortly.
