Middle Earth Battle Companies. (Orc nr 4 03/06/2023)
« on: May 20, 2023, 08:04:14 AM »
Hello,

Recently I got interested in GW Lord of the Rings Middle Earth Battle companies ruleset.

Here are the 3 first Mordor Orcs, they will be part of my Minas Morgul battle company. I am also painting a fiefdom battle company.

The mini's are from Reconquer Designs, who mainly sculpts 10-14th century Spanish mini's, but he is also a big LotR fan.

Sorry, photos not showing for me

Which is a shame as these sound interesting





Thought it might be the ?dl=1 On the end of the urls. But not, so may be permissions on Dropbox?

These look great. How did you do the central shield?

Great sculpts. The mail in particular is very well done!

Wonderful work.  The shields I think are excellent.

Yeah, I noticed before that not everybody could see the pics when shared with Dropbox.
Here are two pictures as attachments. :-)

These look great. How did you do the central shield?

I did paint that one mid april, the other sword / shield orc I painted last week, as you see the wood colour of the shield is not the same. I forgot which colours I used :). When I paint the next shield orc, I will try to replicate the first shield and share the colours.  :)

Thank you!

Yeah, that is his plan. So no plate armour as in the movies.

Those are excellent orcs - very nicely painted!

Excellent painting though not sure about the green skin. Tolkien's orcs varied from black skinned to dark brown or sallow.

Thank you all!

I started working on orc 4, again a sword armed orc with shield, but he also can be armed with a spear instead of a sword. After that it's two orc archers and a black Numenorean.

Excellent painting though not sure about the green skin. Tolkien's orcs varied from black skinned to dark brown or sallow.

Yeah, maybe I should alter the skintone to a more dark / brownish colour. I now used for the skintone the AoS Kruelboy tutorial from Warhammer+.

Small update:

For the fiefdom battle company I added Alrin, a knight of Dol Amroth.

It's not really clear in the picture, but he has a mail cap, so his mouth is covered with mail.
