Grimgor Ironhide

This was a commission painting job. The client wanted a fairly traditional orc colours, so he has a pretty traditional colour scheme.

At first, I was planning to give him very dark skin, like the black orcs in the old days of GW; but in the end I changed my mind and ended up using something a little lighter. But it is still a bit different from the usual way I paint orc skin - there is more blue content in this one, and quite dark shadows, to try to give a slightly darker feel.

Awesome job, maybe the best I´ve ver seen on this mini; both armor and skin are fantastic, the face looks great, I´d really love a closeup of that part; the blood effect also looks very good, and is very fitting for an orc too!!

This is wonderful. The metals are sublime, and look far grittier than the awful NMM reflective techniques that are so popular. Also, this skin is perfect. It's realistic, instead of the overly comical goblin green that has plagued many a tabletop. Well done, sir!

Ver nice! Love this sculpt and you have done him great justice! I don't however think that the red and blue-green go so well together, perhaps the red could have been more blue as well, or maybe just darker. Sven

As usual the subtle nuances of color amaze me. The weathering and metallics are great! A solid ten!
