Archeopainting and -sculpting at its best! Especially the perfect copies of the different Orc skin tones is a masterpiece!

I think you made the perfect choice with the grass. Unfortunately I can't find the specific product at the model tree online shop. Are they out of stock?

Look who I found in Bryan's cabinet at the weekend!

not to brag, but I think it's pretty close. So exciting to see one in the lead, and see how vibrant the colours are. I will have to take him along next year for comparison.

It's Orctober!

I hadn't noticed until this afternoon. Well, I'd noticed it's October... my birthday, my kickstarter project going live, the Pratchett exhibition opening... but not that it was ORCtober!

Something in my inner consciousness must have paid attention though as I started back on the shields last night. :)

Finished! Shields done for Orctober of course.

More photos on the blog: http://fimmmccools.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/orctober-goblinoids-photo-dump.html
A bit blurry because of these dark British winter evenings, better ones to come when I'm next home during daylight hours!

Some of these shields are a bit ropey, I'll probably go back and retouch them when I next have time and inclination but for the moment I'm happy to call it done.

Now, the question remains- gloss or matt glaze? Some I've done a gloss glaze on and they look nicely old-school but the shine doesn't photograph so well. The matt is more 'modern' but results in better photos so I'm thinking I'll go with that but would be interested to hear opinions.

Congratulations, that was a challenging project, and the paint jobs look fantastic!

My vote is for matte varnish, I don't like the 'fake' highlighting that gloss brings.
