Reaper's Various Orcs




This group of orcs have been painted very quickly for a tabletop look. There are less transitional layers - more contrast. However, I didn't want to paint, wash, drybrush. I still wanted the figs to have a good looking paintjob. So the technique is layered, but without the normal blended look. I also skipped out on some detail work such as the eyes, belt buckles, and the like. The idea in the end is to go with a unified look that works on the tabletop.
