Speachless.

I like my Orcs dark green, with black/brown in the recesses and shading to green. Flawless execution on your choosen color scheme. And holy crap!!! Those swords are incredible!!!

I stopped painting with metalics a little while back. I do okay. I aspire to what you have here.

Technique-wise they are great. I would have given them different coloured clothes, or at least different shades of brown. Not a fan of the turquoisey skin.

This was a comment many made about my goblins as well. It seems some people like uniformity, and some like uniqueness. In retrospect, i can certainly see the appeal of the "red sword, red cleaver, red flail, brown sword, brown cleaver, brown flail" pattern, but I backed myself into a corner and have to keep the same theme throughout.

I also didn't want all my "green skins" to have the same shade, so the goblins are more classic looking, the fimirs are more olive-y, and I went with this greyish-green for the orcs. Luckily, no other green minis in this game, so no more need for variety :)

I love the skintone, though I would have gone darker in the shadows. Then again, you know I like your style precisely because of that very special look you manage to give your figures.
And I don't know if I've given any opinion in this thread, but my opinion NOW is: with figures uniformly sculpted, you should stay uniform in painting. It's not a bad thing, mainly because uneven distribution between different color schemes would be weird within the set, as would similar color schemes between different sets of minis.

Again, a job well done. |_P

I think it looks fantastic, but I'm personally not one that likes to have all monsters a uniform color. I prefer seeing a diversity in skin tones like we see in real life. Your painting skills make me jealous.
