Old orc model
« on: April 04, 2018, 02:29:25 PM »
Not really empire related unless you say this guy wants to pulverize the empire. Question is, who is this and itís background. Iím going to use him as a warchanter and Iím going to guess itís holding a troll head/skull ?

Style of the face puts it after 4th edition.  Possibly 6th.  I'll have a look at Stuff of Legends

Thank you sir!! That brings him into line. I know the warchanter needs two weapons but maybe Iíll colour the head two different sides 😸

Nice pic! I didnít realize all the skulls heís wearing as well

You'll ruin it playing in the game that cancelled Warhammer and basing it in the wrong shaped base.

Nah man, that's how you attract attention back to the OG game. All the little kids will be wowing at his fantastic models and when they ask about them Artoban can sit them down to explain the long and glorious history.

Finished him. Was very tired and should have waited. Not very happy with him tbh.

He's pretty good. I'd work on the eyes and highlight s abit more, but then again - I'm shite at painting.

Eyes and highlights for sure. Except for the colour his eyes remind me of 2 pissholes  in the snow 😸 or me after a birthday bash. Turned out like my sister/excelsior priest. Should have been good but something overall not good.

Maybe add some bright tatoos and lighten up the leather pieces. Also that skull, or whatever that is, could be a bit brighter and more agressive when it comes to colors. That's just my two brass pennies.

Tried a bit of the above. I am no good at details like tattoos etc so this is still the result. It did brighten him up a bit though. Thru in the original for comparison

Artobans I think that paint job disrespects how much work it took to boil off the flesh off the Troll skull to keep it from regenerating into a new troll. If anything it is a celebration of a mini you should have by an Indian in the Cupboard standards....

That adds a new dimension to this. I didnít know he was holding a trolls head. The boiling and regen idea is very cool. His new roll as a warchanter usually has him with 2 weapons, knives or bones each representing gork and mork hense the split in colours thru the skull. 
I donít have the skill to pull off fancy tattoos or the like but a suggestion of what to do with the fluff in mind would be good. I would definitely like to do justice to this.

Looks fittingly out of the dismalness of where ever orc warchanters hide.

The use of that word is perfect. You have captured the English language in all its glory. (Plus I feel a bit better 😸)

@xath - I tried some of your suggestions and touched him up. Still not happy with the result but I just donít have the skill level to properly do justice to that skull. I thought I had posted this before but it isnít around. 3 times Iíve made replyís and forgot to send. Too many senior moments I think.
