These look nice! To me these are painted very down-to-earth, believable style. Maybe I'd do something about the bases.

Thanks for the comments!

You’re so right about the bases. I struggle because I don’t much enjoy doing them (and therefore want something easy) and I also want them to be generic enough to work with a variety of gaming tables and other models.

Would be eager to hear any further thoughts on bases from you or anyone else. Maybe I can get some inspiration .

Re: Iron Claw Black Orcs

I think your bases look good, and they fit the rough sculpt and earth tones of the your Orcs. But maybe a final drybrush of a bone colour or khaki would look make them look better. It seems that you did make such a highlight on some of the bases, but not all of them (or maybe it's just due to the light on some of the pictures)?

Re: Iron Claw Black Orcs

There is always room for improvement, even on such well painted models.
First of all at a closer look the feet of the models are a little too much sunk in sometimes. If you want to change this the base probably has to be 90% ready before you place the models.
The basic colors are fine from my point of view. You can give an additional highlight and perhaps a tuft or two to give the base a little more "life". In an earlier stage you could also integrate more rocks or other details in the base structure.
The bases look already good to me, so these are only my 2 cents because you asked.

Re: Iron Claw Black Orcs

This is all very good and helpful.

Some of the bases do indeed have a bleached bone highlight, but I thought it ended up too stark and so abandoned. I think my instincts led me astray there.

I’ll post again here when finished and will be curious to know your thoughts as to the result.

Re: Iron Claw Black Orcs

Nice Job on These ones; Bob Olley models are not easy to paint IMHO (I have the Iron Claw Goblin Chariot), lots of textures and wrinkles - yours look truly good. I feel the models look a bit monochromatic, maybe they would benefit from some patches of brighter Color (red, yellow etc); although I presume you intenden them this way. Will the bases stay as they are, or will you add flock/grass etc?
