Painting Blog, Savage Orcs, Norse Dwarfs and something else.
I now have almost all the bits I need for the Savage Orc team, having just bought the Troll and shaman for the 2nd thrower. All I need now is Varag.



In the early stages of painting I like to take a lineman and complete him before starting on the rest of the team. This lets me try different ideas out and get a feel for the colour balance. I went with yellow as the team colour for the few bits of armour on him with red for the tattoos.

I did have initial thoughts of tattoos coloured to suit the position but that is tricky to get right on green skin so settled for red since it is a strong colour. Even so i still had to start with a black base coat and 2 darker shades of red to make them stand out.


I have now finished all the lineorcs now. All the players have horns or bones somewhere on them so that is sort of another team colour. They also have furs and lizard skin clothing so I decided to utilise this to further differentiate between the positions. So the linemen all have hides with grey fur or scales.



I’ve also made progress on the extra Norse Dwarf linemen and they are complete as well. I have given them all grey beards since they are effectively linemen. I had wanted to do positional themed beard colours on the full team but only thought of it after I’d finished painting half of them. The turn and score markers are done as well now and ready to paint.



Finally I have also been commissioned to start another project. DukeTyrion asked me to paint him up a Nurgle team. I had already done Nurgle and was happy with them in particular Granshrak, though it’s a shame the pics were not great. But that team was all metal and there is a lot of scope for Nurgle conversions, particularly with some new and interesting plastics.

The pics below are of the test models, all of them will be converted more, with lots of nasty decayed bits still to be added.



The warriors are made from a mixture of forsaken and chaos knight bits with a couple of old mutant heads thrown in. I still need to source more suitable armoured arms for them and one will have claws.



The Pestigors will be made from the plastic Bestigors, I’ve added some heads from the Plaguebearers boxed set since they have horns as well.



The beast is going to be made from one of the mutants carrying the chaos shrine. He’ll have one arm that is riddled with tentacles from the chaos spawn set. I've already added a couple of tents with blu tac, but may change those and his heads. He could do with a shoulder pad too.



The rotters are going to be from a variety of sources since they will be recruits from other teams. There will be a Norscan, skaven, orc, dark elf and wood elf. These will all be made from spare BB models I had. There will also be a dwarf and slann, the dwarf being made from some spare bits from my norse dwarfs with the head from a dead dwarf taken from the old black orc standard.



The slann was trickier as there aren’t any slann models. I was going to use the kroot slann test model but then spotted that the plaugebearers had rather toad like bodies so used one of them with the spawn eyes and added some shoulder pads and loin cloth. slann team



In fact i liked the idea so much that I bought the whole plaguebearer boxed set to use with the kroot for my slann team. I’m trying to decide if they should be just the blitzers or the linemen too leaving the kroot as catchers. I’m also considering using the bodies of bloodletters since they might work as blitzers leaving the plaguebearers as linemen.

Right, the dwarves are also my favorite ones.

Well, I'm still VERY happy with the Nurgle you made for me!

Curious to see if you can surpass your previous effort.
