“You know how it is with orcs: the more there are the faster they gather.” Well, I’m not an orc and the whaagh principle does not seem to apply to painting, at least in my case.
Here’s five new recruits after the long hiatus.
This guy was the one I was painting when suddenly I had no time for painting anymore. I think it’s an old Blood Bowl sculpt. As usual the picture is a bit crappy, but after some tries I was quite happy of the impressionist nmm, at least on the shoulder pads. It’s a nice model, but it looks kinda small compared to the other orcs, and figure it was probably meant to be a black orc at the time. That’s the kind of inflation orcs would appreciate, though.
Next, the unit’s musician (yes, he’s playing with elbow and fist rather than with the mace, I found no other way to make the model work), then a boy with a nice face and one with a nice tunic and a shield that screams for some glue.
Finally, an orc whose lack of footing and general shabbiness perfectly represent the state of my hobby.
I have done some prep work on the seven remaining miniatures, as well as on the standard bearer and the general. June is going to be a crazy month work-wise, but I have the foolish hope that I will manage to complete the unit anyway…
