So here we have the grunts, the Linemen of the team.
As mentioned before, I had purchased a few partially painted Orc minis off of Ebay. My train of thought was either that it would help me speed up painting the team, or just check out how other people paint minis. Well, buying a partially painted mini, is more of a chore than painting it oneself. I already talked about having to guess the color/shading combo on the Humans team quite a bit. As far as I can recall, it wasn’t so bad with the Orcs. They were mostly primed, with a few patches of paint, so it was a repaint.
One exception, was this guy.
I found him interesting enough, so I decided to leave him alone. He was pretty much painted using the colors GW had used on their display minis. So, I followed suit.
I did have some grandiose dreams of painting a complete second team of Orcs in an orange color scheme. I even picked up the Forgeworld bits to change up the team. But chances of me ever needing a second Orc team are slim, and given how long it’s taken me to do these also deterred me from wanting to do team two.
The recent release of a new “Black Orc” team further squashed the idea of a second team. It makes more sense to build that new team and have more options that way. I have some more thoughts about the new “Black Orc” team, but I’ll leave that for a future post.
Some of us will be celebrating Holiday(s) this month, and possibly getting some time off of work. Hope you’re all having a good one!
Up next: More Orcs!
