Orc Flesh

Figured out how to paint Orc flesh. I’m doing the following:

– Prime white.

Paint the following layers by hand (not drybrushed or blended):

– Base skin Snot Green.
– 50/50 Snot Green, Goblin Green over most of the flesh, leaving Snot green in the folds.
– Goblin Green over slightly less of the flesh.
– 50/50 Goblin Green, Scorpian Green over just the high points.
– Scorpian Green as the final highlight…just on the real high points (knuckles, ends of noses etc).


– Ink wash with mix of Windsor & Newton ‘Apple Green’ ink dulled down with a drop of plain old India Ink and cut with 50/50 water/Klear floor wax.

Loose Sprues

Nipped into GW at lunchtime. Picked up loose Goblin head and body sprues (enough for 5 Goblins) and Town Cryer 20 + 21. Put two Goblins together and based them for Mordheim Squig wranglers. Stripped the spare Squig and based it- it needs to be re-painted to field in Mordheim – thinking of trying an ‘albino’ (yellow base to white highlights, red eyes) scheme. Pinned the arms on the last Mordheim Orc. Gave another MH Orc a bow – cut from a Goblin arm. Entire MH Orc warband is ready to go – need to be painted.
