WIP: GW LOTR Mordor Orcs - Green Orc Skin

These are my Games Workshop Lord of the Rings Mordor Orcs figures and I continued working on them last night.

I managed to paint 14 Mordor Orcs with green skin for a couple of hours before going to sleep yesterday. I plan to paint the other 4, orange skinned and the other 6, red skinned. As usual I painted these with Vallejo paints using Olive Green, Yellow Green and Yellow Ochre. I thinned the paints to skim milk consistency and applied around 3 coats for the base olive green coat.

I have yet to paint the eyes and have yet to apply some washes. Some washes would hopefully bring out more details on the skin parts soon.

I was pretty surprise that I somehow still have a steady hand and a sharp eye ( not getting any younger after all ). I painted these without any magnifying lenses and somehow it looks kinda okay for my first miniature attempt. 1/35 figures are suddenly so big and easy! lol

This is sooooo fun! Pretty nostalgic too as I used to paint and draw a lot back in college ( I took up Fine Arts ). Also really glad that my hands are still steady enough for this and eyes are working just fine. Hope to show you better updates soon, just too excited I had to post my green orc skin first attempt. :)
