Love your orcs. What colors did you use for their skin tone?

They were sprayed Army Painter Skeleton Bone as a primer, and then just dipped.  Probably a mistake since 90% of the models were not flesh, but...you live, you learn.

Replacement orcs, heyoooo!

I picked up some rather lovely metal "Dungeon Dweller" series orcs from Reaper (Bobby Jackson sculpts I think).  Hugely impressed and maaaaaan, so much nicer to paint than the other Reaper Bones ones.  Really enjoyable and lovely minis with just the right low-fantasy look I was hoping for.  Will grab one or two more blisters at some point (sadly on a few options exist!).



Better looking in person, I promise!

Also knocked out an additional hero I had sitting around in a blister.  A nice Tre Manor sculpt (only oddity being the long and curved grip on the sword...)



Again, the simplistic low-fantasy stuff I'm more interested in.  Nice addition.

Another day of playtesting finally, really happy with the results thus far.  Had a mad, difficult and intense couple of dungeons.





This second picture sums up the day pretty well.  First adventure was tough, but the Hero Party survived with only one of four heroes put out of action.  They had the crowns to pay for his recovery afterwards.

The second adventure...was a bit rough.  The picture shows the wounded Dwarf and the Warrior both turning tale to flee when confronted in the Objective Room.

Elf: Ripped to pieces by Ghouls (who were actually chasing the Wizard)
Wizard: Turned to putty by a Stone Golem which ambushed him...
Dwarf: Almost escaped the dungeon, only to be eaten by spiders a few paces from the stairwell.
Warrior: Survived to...recruit new adventurers.

This party was destroyed by some really poor rolls and unfortunate encounters.

Some more dungeon beasties.  A Reaper Bones snake that didn't turn out great (forgot to thin my dip!), and a really fun-to-paint Orc big boss dude from Reaper.  A big hunk of metal, but fun.

It's a Vallejo colour, I'll check.  It might be the hilariously named "Dark Blue Pale"... I'll let you know when I check.

Just checked and yes, I believe its: Vallejo Model Colour 70.904 Dark Blue Pale

I actually used a different blue/grey on the normal orcs, but I prefer the stronger tone on the big Orc myself.

That orc looks great! Lovely colours and tremendous work on the armour.

I like the snake too. And that dungeon game looks amazing.

No problemo, and thanks Hobgoblin.  I admit...I'm a holistic gamer and it pains me a bit to play with a test dungeon and hand-written cards, but...needs must.

I have received colour coded dice this week, a few more miniatures, started work on a giant...hoping to get a load more baddies painted up, and have been working on a ton of encounter cards and a lot of art....sooo much photoshop work.  It's fun to be this motivated about something again, particularly something like a dungeon crawl where I have an excuse to buy any Reaper minis I want and paint them :D

Had another playtest today with some new players - some cracks were found, but we're plodding on!

Good game, in which the heroes were dispatched to locate the source of people gone missing from their garderobes :D (toilets) in the castle.



Got to use the lovely sea beastie from the Conan Kickstarter.  This creature created and used tentacles to grab and drag the heroes to the maw...they were able to defeat it before being devoured.  It was fun watching them scramble around while the Wizard was hurling fireballs (until he got dragged into the room!).

A Reaper Bones giant to replace my older giant...this didn't turn out the way I wanted it to, but it's 85% good enough so I'll keep it.  Looks better in the dungeon than in pics anyway...

An old-looking skeleton sculpt, and a lovely extra wizard/sorcerer.
