#488579 Nightstalker's Guide to Army Building

Posted by Nightstalker on 22 May 2019 - 02:43 AM

At least half of each orc clan has shields. As for the metalwork, this clan is specifically known for piecing stuff together from various remains, hence the mixture of armor.

In the time frame of a month and a half, I've got another 30 orcs done.

 

Here are the tan/dark tan orcs.

Took inspiration from various metal armored orcs from Warhammer and Warhammer 40K. The decals being used are updated Dark Druid decals in orky format done Saber-Scorpion (I swear between decal orders and art commissions, I've worked this man to death). As usual, they are very amazing and I can't help but say thanks!

 

This just leaves the brown/medium dark flesh orcs left. Their bodies and parts have been assembled, and I am finalizing designs for each one. Once that is done, it'll be time for one final, massive decal order to finish up the regular troops. I've also been taking the time to buy up wargs for 20 special units. More on that later...

 

Oh, and just as a heads up, this army is going to be more delayed as I am super behind on my BrickFair VA 2019 build. Due to the sheer amount of time I've been spending on this faction, their entire army will not be on display this year. Roughly about 150-160 will be present though (150 regulars and 10 special units). That being said, I should hopefully have a BFVA2019 progress report sometime next week.

 

Until then, thanks for viewing!

Yeah, white paint is a real pain in the butt! It also doesn't help that my painting skills aren't up to par. As far as texture goes, it is still very smooth, the paint job is just a bit rough.

Oh trust me, you'll get a lore update... when the army is complete! It'll be similar to the other two armies, which featured:

 

- Faction Emblem

- Land/Trade Breakdown

- History: 1E00-3E45

- Regular Units Breakdown

- Special Units Breakdown

- Unique Units Breakdown

 

And specific to this faction only!

 

- Clan Breakdown

 

And just as another update, I'm continuing with the tan/dark tan orcs right now. This week, all of the pieces will be in to just make the figures, which means I've got (you guessed it), another massive decal order to place real soon! Also, I'm beginning to stockpile LotR wargs for both mounted units. I really recommend against doing this, but the decision was made during pre-army creation sooo... yeah, I'm kinda going to feel the hurt from those purchases. More of a reason I don't recommend LotR stuff, but I can be a stubborn idiot.

 

So keep an eye out for that!

Yes there is a story, but I'll reveal that later, once everyone is done! Also, thanks for the heads up on the pic issue. I'll fix that as soon as possible.

 

(Edit: Fixed!)

No, I'm not dead, and neither is this topic! Just finished the gray orcs!

 

They were literally the only clan that I really didn't have any plans for. Fortunately, I came up with something good and placed another decal order. Props to Saber-Scorpion for yet another batch of amazing decals!

These guys are primarily seafaring orcs. They are specifically known for their unique top-knot hairstyle and their brutality on the seas. Of course, they are equally fierce on land as well.

 

That makes 3/5 orc clans for the primary forces. That leaves the brown/medium flesh orcs and the tan/dark tan orcs. I'm probably going to go for the brown ones next. Either way, it'll probably be a bit before another update.

 

Until then, have an awesome day!

And now we have another pope!

Seriously like that goblin and orc crusader. I'll echo Neyo, I rather like the new colors.

Alright, there's been way too many of these things done since my last post, so I'm going to lazily post the album:

Looking good so far! I really like the technique for the sloped section.

I really love the overally design for the Golden Banner. Between the mix of decals, BW equipment, and BF equipment, you've created a really awesome group of lamellar wearing bad@$$3$!
