Skarsnik's Not-So-Greenskins

user posted image


Hello, my fellow goblins and trolls!

Finally my other army projects are done - I have my Ogre tournament army painted, so I can move on the greatest challenge - my greenskins. smile.gif Although I'm painting both my VC and O&G at the same time, my O&G are taking the priority most of the time.

Yeah... So, I have something like 9000 points of greenskins, and I decided I'm going to paint a tournament army first, then move on the other models.

Here's a list what I've painted at the moment.

THE ORCS & GOBLINS PROJECT:

* 2 Savage Orc Shamans/Great Shamans
* Orc Big/War Boss on a Boar
* 3 Night Goblin Big/War Bosses
* Goblin Big Boss on a Wolf
* Savage Orc Big Boss (BSB)
* Night Goblin Big Boss (BSB)
* Goblin Big Boss (BSB)
* 2 Night Goblin Shamans

* 27 Goblins (+3 Skulkers)
* 61 Night Goblin archers
* 16 Night Goblin hand weaponists
* 39 Savage Orcs
* 10 Wolf Riders
* 3 Fanatics
* 5 Arrer Boyz

* 14 Trolls
* 40 Black Orcs
* 2 Wolf Chariots
* 6 Night Goblin Spear Chukkas

* 2 Goblin Rock Lobbers
* 2 Goblin Doom Divers
* 2 Mangler Spiders
* Pump Wagon
* Giant

My current color theme is made of lots of different down-to-earth colors and rusty weapons.

Anyway, I'll be updating this blog as much as possible. Hope you enjoy following this. smile.gif

- Cheers, Skarsnik. biggrin.gif

So here they are... Vomit.gif These models can be found from my old Tale of X Gamers -blog too, but I wanted to have all my stuff in one thread so now they can be found from here too. rolleyes.gif Anyway, hope you like 'em. smile.gif

At the moment I'm working on 5 Night Goblins more and on my Wyvern. I'll basecoat them either before the next weekend and paint some of them at the weekend. I'll keep updating when I get stuff ready!

Looking good! I really like the savage orcs, what colours did you use for the blue tatoos? It's really striking.

Thanks! smile.gif The color I used was Mordian Blue. After painting the symbols I edged them with Chaos Black.

I have some work done, here's some pics of my Wyvern's process.

First of all the rider - both the mounted and the infantry models.

Sorry for the bad pics, I'll fix them ASAP. The metallic parts of the Black Orc don't shine that much in reality. rolleyes.gif

Looking good! I really like the detail you put into the wyvern's (griffin's?) base! It ought to be bloody impressive when fully painted!

The orcs, and especially the wyvern base look great. I'm having a hard time imagining an orc riding a bird/gryphon, though. I keep thinking the orc is about to kill it and eat it for dinner.

Thanks! Yep, I know Griffon sounds a bit weird as a mighty Warboss' mount, but I wanted to keep it as a bit different than the normal Wyverns (and I don't like the green lizard of GW rolleyes.gif ).

Another reason why I wanted the Griffon is the beautifulness of the model and if I remember correctly, a some kind of Griffon is an old Scottish mythic creature (or have I mixed it with Rok bird? unsure.gif ).

Anyway, I got a modelling idea to cheer the model up and make it a bit more Scottish looking. Maybe some kind of tartan clothe on the Griffon's back? Some shields and/or bags and shields on the beast's back too. Any ideas? smile.gif

And by the way, I found this model from my treasure chest. I painted him in summer, what do you think about it?

Hey, nice minis. I like the idea of a Griffon-Wyvern. If an orc warboss can tame something as large as a wyvern he would clearly be able to tame a griffon as well. Either that or just steal one from a high elf noble. biggrin.gif

I also like the goblins with the units fillers and the boss guy with 2 swords.

But not so sure about the jacket on your orc warrior, he seems to be wearing fake Burberry which to me does not look good. No offence. tongue.gif

Thanks for your comments. biggrin.gif

@ Wazoo: First of all I glued some sand on the blade. After painting the sand black I started to paint the blood. First paint some dark red on the blade (I mixed Chaos Black and Mechrite Red, but Gore Red or so is ok), after that drybrush it with Mechrite Red. After washing the blade with Devlan Mud it is almost ready... When the blood is dry, I stuck some white glue (or wood glue) on the blood to make it look shiny. Done. smile.gif

@ Craze_b0i: I agree, I was a bit disappointed with the shirt. huh.gif I think it needs some black lining, now it looks like a clown shirt. laugh.gif I'll see what I can do today.

No Orcs in this update, but I have something I painted for a contest... A dinner!

-

It's White Dwarf made in 5th edition. smile.gif I bought a Dwarf army from auction in web very cheaply a couple of weeks ago. Now I have sold the army away and I got ~ 60 money and a couple of models I wanted to keep (the White Dwarf for an example). laugh.gif

- Cheers, Skarsnik. biggrin.gif
