Paint Table Saturday - 134: Orcs and Abdul

Hi All,

Finally had a moment to take and edit a couple of pictures of what I'm working on. And on a Saturday no less!?


Five of the Boar Boyz that Don sent me. The other five have had some paint applied but I'm trying to figure out the sweet spot for keeping the ball rolling on them. I've seemed to have a hard time getting myself to sit at the paint table lately.

You'll see that my entry into the Abdul Goldberg contest on the Emporium of Rogue Dreams is coming along. I have until the end of the month to finish him. I'm fired up because they have just revealed that Rick Priestly will be the judge. I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl.


My Abdul is mostly Eureka's Voltaire with a few bits from the Cadian box added and a back pack and respirator cable/tube from Dragon Forge. Be sure to check out the other entries in the Album.

Hopefully I can get more done on this guy today.

    1. Thanks Millsy. I was worried that the servo skull was a little too much, but I couldn't resist putting it on. I also feel like my Space pirates need to look like 17th century pirates. Lastly, how could Abdul Goldberg not have a huge wig?

    1. Thanks Anthony. My latest iteration of basing is a mixture of aquarium sand and two grades of railroad ballast. I slather the base with watered down PVA, dip it in the tub of mixed grit, let it dry and then apply another dose of scenic cement or other watered down PVA and use a brush to break surface tension and help it wick into the grit. This helps a little to seal it so it doesn't slough off when you go to paint it.
