I finished the orc the other night:
As mentioned, I first saw this model in the Citadel Miniatures Painting Guide back in 1992 or so. There was a colour sketch of the model in the guide. This is - in itself - interesting. A model shown with a drawing - how intriguing is that? And the drawing came with suggestions for colours, so you might imagine how I wondered something like this: "...if I could get hold of this cool orc, would I be able to make it look like this?...How would it turn out..." Well, now I have had my try anyway.
The model is from 1985, real vintage, so I added the miniature's tag to the back of the scenic base. Paintingwise, I wanted to go back and use the suggested colour scheme from back then taking the green in a very light and vivid direction.
I really enjoyed painting this model. The process was nice and quick and the model is now in my cabinet.
