Greenskin Wars - The Iron Orcs

The fabulous range "Greenskin Wars" from Diego Serrate will know new reinforcements, there are only a few days to participate in the current kickstarter.


Among the new models, the monstrous Iron Orcs, that I had the privilege and pleasure to paint.


As you can see, they are pretty big!



I give you here some recipes of painting, for lack of a true step by step, with however some pictures of stages.

SKIN
- Base : Knarlock green
- AP wash strong tone
- 1st highlight : base + VGC visquous green
- 2nd highlight : adding one or two times VMC flat flesh 
- 3rd highlight : adding VGC bone
- final highlight with pure VGC bone
- GW red wash in the recesses

For those with darker skin, I just started from the same base by adding black and making the highlights sharper by retaining the flat flesh blends.

TEETH
- Base : VMC English uniform
- 1st and 2nd highlight by adding VGC bone
- final highlight with pure white

Transitions can be smoothed with AP washes.

FUR (on the boots)
- Base : VGC Dark grey
- 1st and 2nd highlight by adding VGC wolf grey
- final highlight with pure white
- Some AP washes (dark and strong tones) for the recesses

ORANGE LEATHER
-Base : VGC vermin brown
- AP strong tone wash
- 1st and 2nd highlight by adding VGC bone
- final highlight with pure VGC bone

Transitions can be smoothed with VMCAir Acajou-Panzer WWII wash.

YELLOW LEATHER
-Base : VGC cobra leather
- AP strong tone wash
- 1st and 2nd highlight by adding VGC bone
- final highlight with pure VGC bone

MAT LEATHER
-Base : VMC mat brown
- AP strong tone wash
- Two highlights by adding VMC brown leather to the base
- Then one or two more highlights by adding VGC bone
- final highlight with pure VGC bone

Here, the three types of leather.




STEEL
- Base : VGCAir Steel
- 2 times AP strong tone wash
- VGC Beasty brown wash for the rust
- 2nd wash by adding VMCAir Acajou-Panzer WWII
- Highlight with the base

BRONZE
- Base : VMC bronze
- 2 times AP strong tone wash
- Higlights with GW old shining gold, adding it to the base or pure.

COPPER
- Base : a very, very old GW copper !
- 2 times AP strong tone wash
- Highlights by adding VGCAir Steel

Vert-de-gris
-VGC carapace green wash
- 2nd wash by adding VGC bone

There, you can see the metal parts before the highlights.









Again, do not forget that AP washes are perfect for softening transitions, dark, strong or soft tone depending on the colors.

I can only advise you greatly these miniatures, the sculpture is just beautiful !

  6. These are amazing minis and such great painting. I've ordered some after seeing your blog and really want to follow your painting guide. I have one question though, I can't find the paint VGC visquous green, could you confirm that's the actual name of the colour? Thanks so much and keep up the fantastic work!
