Callum & Grandad's Middle Earth Armies - Orcs

Mon Aug 29, 2016 7:21 pm

My foray into Mordor stared out with the few plastic and metal orcs that came with the magazines and it just grew with some purchases of second hand figures and a few gifts from other wargamers. Now we have a sizeable force for the Dark Lord.

Wow!
Great trolls and Morgul Knights, make nice contrasts with the bases.
Wouldn't make my orcs so brightly colorful - the shields and banners - but that is why it's refreshing to see someone else do it.

Thanks, Callum and I decided not to go for the very dark, drab orcs on drab bases that many seem to use. The skin colours we decided should fit with the films (Callum's main pictorial source) but the clothes and shields we wanted to be different. There are quite a few conversions in amongst them. After all even the "goodies" - especially Gondor are quite dark so even there we added some brightness.

The basing is our standard wargames table emulsion green with some static grass.
