...green and brown. Another orc to double the size of my orc horde, once again with Moss 29 triad skin, although kept a little yellower this time, possibly not noticeable from the photos. I even had a first go at the archetypally orcy black 'n white checkerboard strip! Check me out - and on a school night as well!
I love the odd shape of his axe-like weapon, wielded with the help of a hook "hand" - an experienced warrior, this one!
The other spot of brushwork from the last few days is these four little fellows. They are Kev Adams' sculpts for sale though Alternative Armies as "lesser goblins". As with all such momentous decisions, I hummed and hawed about how to base them but decided on 20mm square bases. This way I can pop four of the together as a snotling base, or use them to bolster the numbers of a goblin unit, or use them as very low level threats in a dungeon crawl. Win, win, win!
They're tiny, detailed little buggers, full of the manic wickedness that we've come to know and love in Kev's little caricatured self-potraits (seriously, look at his photo alongside one of his goblin sculpts. - uncanny!), and as such were rather tricky to paint.
You'll have noticed that they're brownskins, not greenskins. I'll have a range of skin tones for them, but may well go with the smaller the goblinoid, the browner the skin tone I choose. Who knows?!
For now, I'll leave you with a family photo of the army (har-har!) so far:
If you haven't already, why not slap some pigment on a goblinoid for orctober?
