Orc Commandos painted WIP.

The Commandos, how should I pant them up, what should they look like, well here is one way I thought they should look. I have created a progress photo stream of my work on 4 of my Orc Commandos today.

Start with some GZG mercs, and a few paints. I used Green, Antique white, sable brown, Black, red, yellow, white, silver (metallic), Polyshades dip, Testers dull coat.

With the two colours below I mixed up most of the uniform, gun, armour, and boots.

Bellow are the Orcs ready for dip, and I have brushed it on.

Once the dip is dry, I sprayed with dull coat, and hit some detail work.

Only thing left is to finish up the bases. Then put them to work.

Kit bashed Orc Tank.

Well after reading a blog post from Zrune Lord I decided to give it a go and created a tank thing for my self. This is a card stock hull, with odd bitz glued to it. Tank wheels are GW tanks wheels. Tread is PC flat cable. Big gun left over from another tank, all slapped together with supper clue.

The welds are 2 part epoxy putty (like green stuff) rolled out to a thin line. Placed over a joint
then I poke it with a pin, or pen on an angle to make the welds.

Space Orc army TOE.

I have been reviewing my Orc, and have decided on the TOE of the army. I have been going back and forth for years as to the make up of the army. I still love the old RT days of the GW Orcs and want to use the back story of those glory days for my Space Orc army.

Below are photos of my horde as it stands, with numbers next to the units. I will list out each unit in the photos. The photos are not that great, but you will get a feel for the over all size. Once I get the horde painted I will move to make more vehicles. I also want to add some more boys but that will be much later.
  1. Mega Armored Space Orcs 4 units of 5 (15mm UK space pirates)
  2. BA commandos 3 units of 8 (GZG mercs)
