Orcs from Mordor!

This evening I finished my latest painting project of 24 Mordor Orcs from Games Workshop's Lord of the Rings line of miniatures. These plastic figures are 25mm in scale and were painted with Citadel acrylic paints. All figures were purchased second-hand, mainly from eBay. I stripped all pre-existing paint from these miniatures and started again from scratch. I painted them using a production-line method. Click on the picture for a larger image.

There are eight with a hand weapon and shield, eight with bows and eight with two-handed weapons.

I now have some enemies for my warriors of Minas Tirith to battle. This will give me the opportunity to do solo testing of some miniatures rules such as Lord of the Rings - Strategy Battle Game and Song of Blades and Heroes.

Nice orcs!

I have a similar situation with about 30 or so Moria goblins. I just need to line 'em up and get paint on them and not worry about it. Between the 30 gobbos and 22 Mega Minis orcs, that's over 1/3d of my unpainted minis.

I find that doing a little bit of painting (30-60 minutes) every evening is the way to go. Good luck!

@Oz - ah, I have no problem doing the mass-paint jobs... I've been having too much fun with my hirelings box set and my other PC/NPCs minis. Doing the mass armies gets boringzzzzz... ;)
