The first group is of four Orcs, all fairly well armed and armored. They always reminded me of old Tim Kirk illustrations for Lord of the Rings, which is perhaps not a coincidence.
They were quite straightforward to paint, which is good as I am in the process of ramping up my skills! From the back:
I like this style a lot more than the more "modern" Orc look from Warhammer, Lord of the Rings, etc. I based the color scheme more or less on the description of Orcs from the AD&D Monster Manual (ditto for the Goblins), so more brownish-green skin than just green. In hindsight, I'd have browned them up even more.
There were also seven Goblins in the pile I dug out of the depths. These guys were insanely well equipped -- most of them had at least 3 weapons, multiple bags, lots of straps, etc. Not hard to paint, but a little time consuming. Still, I like the variety of poses and weapons, especially the military fork.
Some of the lads. I tried to keep the prominent teeth from being too stand-outish!
I like these guys a bit less than the Orcs, as their faces are too snoutish for my tastes. Still, fun enough to paint.
I have some more "ash and trash" leftover lead from the 80s to paint, but I did not have enough time for "Nostalgia Week" to get anything further done (I did finish three matching mounted Goblins but did not get to their Warg mounts, so I'll save them for a later week). After that decades-overdue cleanout is finished, I plan on shifting to 28mm Vikings and Saxons for use in Saga. Happily, they are all assembled and primed and ready for painting.
