WIP: GW LOTR Mordor Orcs - Basing Done

I managed to work on my first ever miniatures last night and earlier today and I am excited to show you my first " basing " attempt.

These are 24 miniatures of Lord of the Rings Mordor Orcs from Games Workshop. They are half the size of your usual Warhammer and WarMachine / Hordes miniatures but they pack enough details and are very cheap. The price and the smaller size of these minis makes for great practice pieces as I will find other minis huge once I work on other kits ( lol ).

First I added bits and pieces of styrene on all the bases and then I glued ( wood glue ) some aquarium sand on them. My eldest daughter was the one who sprinkled the sand on the glue. I then primed all of the figures flat black and let cure overnight.

Earlier today I overbrushed ( drybrushed ) some light grey over the black figures and I eventually started on painting the bases. All washes and paints are Vallejos. The base is almost done as I just need to paint the sides of the bases with black ( not brown ). Maybe I could also add some static grass once I get my hands on them.

For the mean time here are some photos of my progress so far... ( time to walk my dog, hehe )

Nest stop, painting the Orcs themselves!
