Finally, the 3rd edition orc team is painted, varnished and ready for gory, bloodstained glory. I've had fun painting the team, even though I had some problems with the old metallic versions of the Blitzers and the Black Orc Blockers.

I have tried to work with contrasts while painting this team, especially when I painted the miniatures' skin.

If you want to see photos of my other orc team, follow the orc tag added to this blogpost.

The next big project will be revealed at the bottom of this blog post!

And today, with the timing of a unicorn's Casio, the ratmen team from Willy miniature arrived! I have opened the box and I can tell you that we are in for a treat!

Last but not least. Here are some balls.

Until next time:

Happy Friday everyone! I just finished highlighting the miniatures' yellow details. I tried to separate the steel details from the cloth by highlighting them with white, aiming for a more shiny look.

I really liked Citadel's Yriel Yellow. It works well with Averland Sunset and Agrax Earthshade (lawdamercy).

Next up: Grey Metal details

In other news, I have received a confirmation email from Willy Miniature (pun intended?) saying that my Ratmen team is finally on its way! Looks like what was supposed to be my summer project is turning into my autumn project. At least it will get here rather soon.

Until next time,

Hello fans, followers and the rest of you!

I have completed painting the purple highlights. As you can see, I decided to use pink as a second highlighting colour.

After painting five minis or so, I thought the pink was a bit much and I regretted using it. But seeing the figures in daylight, after the paint hade dried properly, I think that they get a really nice glow.

I really enjoy painting these orcs, and hopefully, the end result will be satisfying.

Oops! It seems as I forgot the white highlights on that black orc. I'll have to fix that right away!

Next up: Yellow metal and yellow cloth. I'll probably give you an update rather soon, after completing one or two minis.

Until then.

Good evening! I got some news regarding my Orc team: The green skin is painted. It has been fun painting it and I feel as if the major parts of painting the team is behind me.

I have started highlighting the armour and it seems as if I am able to paint al the purple armour in one or two more sittings. I need to reconsider whether I am going to add another colour besides white in the mix. I just might be crazy enough to use pink this time. You never know...


Furthermore, it was decided who I am going to play against in Hog Bowl 2. I will try to pass the pig "Ylen Oilers", fielded by Niclas Bråhn. He. Users my other Orc team, which I have previously presented in the blog. I am hopefully able to get rid of the pig this time. I was quite happy to hear that his thrower got injured, and will miss this game. He might have to spend a couple of re-rolls picking up the ball, as he will miss sure hands and agility 2.

More updates regarding the orcs and Hog Bowl are to be expected, but until then,

After shading the miniatures we can start with the highlights. Today I tried the colours I'm going to use on a lineman and a black orc.

The colours I use for highlighting the orc skin are olive green and warm green from privateer press. Final highlights are painted with livery green from Vallejo and yriel yellow from citadel. I added some off white as a final touch.

Painting the skin on all the figures will probably take some time, and I don't think that I will update that often during the process. But I will be back and until then,

All the orcs are finally base coated and shaded. I have had other things to do, and the progress has been slow. That's the reason why I haven't updated the blog.

Among other things, I have painted some blue balls (no pun intended). It looks a bit boring when all the figures are painted the but the balls ate not.

The blue balls are from the dwarf setand the red ones are from the third edition orc set, and the 2016 orc set.

Speaking of Blood Bowl, my Dark Elves are still undefeated after playing against the other teams in the league. We are still looking for the first victory, as all the games have ended in draws.

This week, I played against the Second Spruce, a well developed wood elf team. My inducements, a wizard and the star player Horkon Heartripper helped me to get rid of my opponents wardancers, which made the game comprehensible.

I don't know if I have to play for the pig or the win yet. It depends on the league's final match.

Until next time,

Gooood evening!

The reason why I haven't updated the blog is basically the lack of things to write about. When I have been able to paint I have continued base coating the orcs. I have been painting yellow, yellow and more yellow. It's only a couple of orcs left before I can move on to the fun stuff.

Today is my birthday and I got this awesome lamp from my awesome family. I have received some nice gifts in my days and this lamp sure makes it to some kind of list.

Its white light in combination with the magnifying glass make a huge difference for my eyes when I paint.

Gold morning fans and followers! I have barely had time to paint, which means that I haven't had time to update the blog.

I have had half an hour here and there and yesterday I was able to finish base coating my second colour. I decided to go with purple steel and yellow cloth. I think they will work quite well together.

I will give you a more thorough update in the future, but until then,

The car pulled up right next to the young man who was wearing sunglasses and looked as he had not shaved for ages. The man was carrying a blue ice cream box. The driver of the car knew that in the box lie something that was going to have a great impact on his life.

The bearded man looked over his left shoulder. Then he looked over his right shoulder and stepped into the car. The men shook hands and executed the drop off. The driver looked into the box an there they were. The greens.

When you are a thirty-something teacher, father, figure painter, you don't have much room in your life for excitement. Therefore, a complete old school orc team might be just the thing you need to feel your blood pumping in your veins.

Since the ratmen is taking a while to get here, i might as well start painting my orc team and the 2nd ed blitzers, black orcs and a goblin who all lie in that blue box, will complete my 3rd ed orc team perfectly!

I decided to use a gray primer this time, as I feel that the white undercoat didn't really do the trick. After the paint had dried, I painted a first base coat of green on the linemen and the throwers.

During this project, I will try to focus on painting the green skin with big contrasts, with almost yellow and neon highlights. As most of these miniatures are not as detailed as the dark Elves or the dwarves, I believe they will be perfect for practicing this.

I'm looking forward to painting this project, and I hope you'll like reading about it.

Until next time,

This is the speed painted dark elf team I have been working with for the past couple of weeks. I am fully aware of the fact that it doesn't sound like it's speed painted when I say a couple of weeks, but bare in mind that I don't have much spare time (I wonder how much time I'll have when I get back to work)!

I don't know if I'm going to start another project before the ratmen team. I received an email yesterday, saying that the shipment wasn't going to start for another three weeks :/ I'll let you know!

Anyway, thank you for following me on this journey!

Until next time,
