Another pair of Kev Adams’ Citadel Orc Boyz (WHFB 4th Edition)

Today we have a couple more of Kev Adams’ Orcs that I’ve recently painted. These figures are from the 1992-93 period, or the early days of WHFB 4th edition.

Unlike the big’uns that I painted a little while ago and placed on 32mm bases, these figures fit nicely on standard 25mm bases.

I’ve painted them to broadly match the other Orcs I’ve been painting recently. Once again, the grinning goblin-faced shield is from the Warhammer Fantasy Regiments plastic boxed set from early 3rd edition. I haven’t got a lot of other commentary on them for the time being. A couple more orcs for the pile!

  1. Favourites this time: Fur coat and bone handle. The fur coat looks very good, nice colour variation and it has that slightly dirty and weathered look to it. The bone handle is just a nice touch and is a refreshing deviation from usual leather or metal tones one would use.

    • Heh, thanks. Keeping things both colourful and dirty is a challenge when painting things like Warhammer Orcs. To be “realistic” they’d likely be pretty much encrusted in dirt, muck, old gore and grime from head to toe, and almost a monotone in shades of dark grey and brown but that wouldn’t read too nicely on the models. Though I’m happier to go further down that particular path with my LotR Orcs.
