I'm thinking! :lol: I actually kind of like the cool palette, even if it's not very good color-theory-wise - I'm gonna give the haft and head of the axe, and the bit where the blade of the sword is attached to the hilt, another darker pin-shading hit with smoke, but nothing orangey-er than that prrrooobably.

I decided to go blue like my goblins, mostly just to be contrary. :D Aside from that, I was going for something as Black Orc-y as I could manage.


Smurf + Orc = Smurc? :D

Nice colour scheme, I think it works really well.

Blue is beautiful. I'd hate to be Gargamel if that is Hakka Smurf.
ps. Blue's complimentary color is orange :mrgreen:

So, after suffering from a bit of the old hobby-block over the past week or so, I took some minis outside to prime after work yesterday. When they were dry, I had a sudden urge to have a go at them with a paintbrush and so spent about 4 hours painting last night. There's just something tempting about minis which aren't yet half-painted and shoved off to one side. :lol:

Thanks! It hits that pleasant medium between easy-to-paint and good-looking, with just a little touch of "I've been doing this for 25 years and will give my orcs whatever color skin I want to, thank you very much." :lol:

Yesterday I picked up a box of Passive-Aggressors for my Marines ("Nice boltgun. I used to have one just like it when I was a Scout."), so now the goal is to get them painted by next weekend and get them on the table.

But while I wait for good priming conditions, more Ironjaw Orruks!

...er, Black Orcs!

There's half of Ironskull's Boyz, Bonekutta on the left ("Why's he called Bonekutta?" "He cuts bones, Avi.") and Hacka on the right. Just Basha and the boss to go.
