Back in Mordor (II)

I've made some progress on the orcs. They were primed with Chaos Black spray. I then painted over the recesses where the base coat didn't catch well. Once I had a solid layer of black, I lightly sprayed brown over it. It helped in bringing out the details and it should making painting a bit faster since some paints (e.g. red) don't work well on a purely black basecoat.



The bases should look like a scorched Mordor battleground once they're finished. I used two different types of basing grit and some sand to create what is supposed to look like random rubble. I will add scorched grass in the final stage as it tends to get flattened by varnish applied in spray.
Painting a larger number of similar miniatures can be a bit tiresome as it seems that the progress is virtually non existent. Still, even doing a little on several models in one painting session is a step ahead. Now, onto the armors and clothes...

  2. Thank you for the comment. I'm just wondering how it is that an artist like you who specializes in a completely different type of painting comes across this blog.
    I've never been to Fort Collins but I spent one holidays in Denver and have fond memories.
    Cheers!
