Archived Half Orc Fighter

2014/12/31 - update - this is an Earthdawn Orc With Sword from Heartbreaker - HBH308B.  It was part of a three pack of orcs.


Another unknown found in a bag of minis. This is a half-orc fighter. Another speed test as I was going for best quality job in fastest time possible. I painted this on a Saturday night in 2 hours prior to our DC mini-painting meeting on Sunday. What was different was that I used inks for shading in order to speed the process and thereby reducing a layer or two (see my instructions). Completed the base on Sunday night after the meeting.
