These are test pieces for colour schemes. Here we see Mrs West's as yet unnamed Orc team:
The Black Orc blocker has a nice dark skin tone to help them stand out from their smaller teammates. The red sets this off well, but I've yet to decide on the accent colours. I'm waiting to see how the various washes and glazes dry before I decide.
The bog standard lineman in the classic red Orc livery. I'm intending to keep the skin tones quite muted but will brighten up the red to try and capture that Old School Eavy Metal look. Again, trim and accent yet to be decided although I'm quite temped to go with the classic black and white check.
Here's the human test, working with the reliable blue and yellow combo with rich brown accents.
Not only is it nice to get back to painting but painting this oldhammery goodness brings the happy memories flooding back.
