Annnnnddd... they're done!! Yay!!
Ok, yes first unit of orcs are complete. And quite nice they are if I may say so myself;
The flesh was done over four layers or so, a dark angels and snot mix followed by a green ink wash. Then highlighted by pure snot green and once more with snot and goblin mix before the final layer of goblin for top highlights.
The clothing I can't really give details to as it varies. Using a limited colours of brown, black and grey I have a kind of haphazard look to them but still gives a sense of unity (hopefully). Colours used have been all the browns including brown ink, chaos black, codex grey and fotress grey.
Metallics; again throughout the unit these have varied. The base has always been boltgun metal, mainly due to the fact it's the darkest metal available, then this has had inks mixed into it and/or Chainmail in hopes of creating a mix dark enough to not look clean. IMO the best weapons are on the back four orcs, this has no black ink but instead used only brown.
There are a few models that have a head hanging from their belts, two are painted in a slight pale flesh tone using most flesh colours but adding rotting flesh into the mix. The last I dedcided to do differently, I washed it with a watered down green ink and added some to the flsh tones to try and convey a decayed look. It actually looks quite rotten but I'm unsure if the pics do them justice.
And finally the bases; sand with a base of scorched brown then drybrushed codex grey followed by fortress grey. After tidying up a final touch of dark green static grass was added.
In all something I am quite proud of.
Now for soemthing else. As some may know I have been doing the orcs for a Tale of X Gamers, at first it was a good idea but now I feel I cannot continue with it. I find doing the same unit for an entire month or more slightly disheartening and so I've decided to drop out of it. But fear not! The greenskin army will grown but more slowly as it will have to contend with my attention along with my other two - Dwarfs and Space Marines - as well as doing special characters or random models/units that catch my eye.
So they will be continued but not one after another, there will be a lot of stuff between units I expect. Look out for updates on the army and other stuff soon, I'll be starting another model tomorrow.
Brilliant! Perhaps the same quality as those you posted before, maybe better. But, the prior ones were outstanding, and so are these! :yes:
Can't wait to see more!
Nice as a whole, but i dont like the extreme highilghting on the banner. just my thoughts though.
There Great, just like Orcs should look like.

Thank you all for the comments. The highlights on the banner may seem slightly harsh but tbh any darker and they would have been unnoticable. But thank you.
Very,very nice orcs there Ulrik.Lol i cant help but laugh.The orcs with the two horns coming out of their helmets remind me so much of that guy off the movie little nicky with the breasts on his head!Very good work Ulrik,fabulous Orcs.

I especially like the bases and movement trays, they look awesome, and give the unit a realistic look.
I'm considering starting up Orcs and Goblins, and was thinking about doing a whole Boar Boy army, but I can only buy boar boys in blisters of 1 that are $18AUD, so it would cost $540AUD for 3 units of 10 (what I planned to have in a 1000 point army). I wish they would release them in boxes of 5/10 so they would be more affordable.
I love the personality and originality of Orcs&Goblins, so that's why I want an army of them.
Thank you all for the comments. But one thing - Tycho - they're orcs not orks.
Great work Adam like always. Especialy the Banner and the musician looks great. Great paintwork again
