I bought these guys back when Confrontation was still live game. I actually painted Kolgor 6 years ago, but never got around to paint the two trackers. Now that I’m DMing Dungeons & Dragons, I’ve been able to breathe new life and purpose into these mighty fine orc minis from Rackham in our current campaign.
my partner got me this tough-looking Orc from Reaper. I wanted him to look like a very unsympathetic Slave Task Master, so I made sure he had no decorations or ornaments. Just muscle and rusty armour plates. In our Dungeons & Dragons campaign, he is known as Mr Nice! Orc
While looking for evil dwarves, I found this tank of an orc at Mom Miniaturas, the same place as I found these amazing Dwarf Stone Golems. I couldn’t resist buying him as he is perfect for a huge, brutal but intelligent Orc warlord. I will fit him in as a main character later in my Dungeons & Dragons campaign. I used same painting technique as I used on my Minotaur and although I think the Minotaur turned out better, I am still happy with this Orc.
I started these Arcadia Quest Orcs way before Kingdom Death: Monster arrived, so the fact I haven’t finished them before now, I cannot blame on KDM. However, I didn’t find them particularly inspiring to paint. Not that I don’t like the minis, but their rough skin and armour makes them hards to paint and highlight essentially making them more trouble than they are worth… similar to the Frog Knights and Billmen from Super Dungeon Explore. On top of this, I tried priming them green with GW green primer and it led to an Orc skin colour I couldn’t really control…
