Reaper's Orc Warrior of Kargir - 2287

The Orc Warrior of Kargir is one of the coolest orc figures - not just Reaper, but everyone else's as well. Finished in August of 2002. This one sat on my desk for a while as I decided on color scheme. I wanted dark and moody - so I went with two different tones of brown - one for the skin and the other for the leather. Again, this figure was painted with the layering technique.
