Having been inspired by Kurgan's masterpieces and wanting to include some Orcs in my pirate crew as well, I did a bit of greenstuff work (it's been my second time). Here are the current results:




They are just test models, the proper pirates are awaiting some parts. However, I think I'll give the one with the cloak a Captain's hat (if I manage) and add some beards, pouches and belts, in order to have a go at a variety of greenstuff projects. Then I'll move to the "proper stuff" Wink

Oh, and I'd be more than glad to get some comments, advice and whatsoever Smile

Not too shabby at all, especially as it's so early in your GS career! I also love the arm piercing! Just watch out for those fingerprints on the cloak...

Yeah, I noticed the fingerprints, too. I'll just sand it down, I suppose (after the greenstuff has hardened completely)

Very, very nice orcs... and amazing pirates Very Happy

The only thing I don't like are... beards! Sorry... I'm just a beard-fanatic Wink It should look more "hairy" - I would sculpt it (as I always do) with a sharp knife or something. As I said, except that, the orcs are really good work. I like them Smile

LOVE 'EM!

REALLY nice GSing. The problem with the beards might not be the scupt [I think they're excellent]; it's that they are SO magnified in the photo that little things that are unnoticeable in actual size are now crystal clear. However, I notice more faults wth GW's work than with yours, SO WELL DONE! thumbsup

Yay! More Orc pirates for me to get silly ideas from.

I love the last guys plait of hair. Is it from a Beastman or elsewhere?

Thanks for all the kind comments!

Cat: Yeah, it's the hair from a Gor's horns Smile

Oh, and the beards were a real pain, so don't even mention them! Wink I even had the chance to do them several times as I accidentally pushed my fingers on the large one :/ I think I will definitely have to paint them to see how all the sculpting actually looks when painted.

Cool! But I don't like the beards! Might be better if they started higher up, and included a tachse. pirat

Excellent stuff! The hats and cloaks are excellently well done. How did you go about making those tricorns? They're excellent.

As for the beards - I like the long one that hangs off the guy's chin. It looks like he's been carefully cultivating it for years, a few wisps at a time, like mutant chin-whiskers.

Cool!

You just have to flatten some greenstuff, cut out a triangle, cut off the tips of the triangle and then squeeze it onto the head and fold the sides up.

Thanks, Eliazar. It *sounds* relatively straightforward, which means that I'm likely to mess it up at least twice, but they look so cool I think I'll definitely be trying it!

Well, you might need to try a few times how much of the tips you should cut away. But it is not too complicated, after all it has been the first stuff I made out of GS Wink

The latest addition to the crew is an Orc most of you will know already. But as I think it's one of the greatest models/conversions of all times I simply had to attempt to convert one myself, too:



EDIT: As I am now sitting here late at night, looking at the conversion, I have to stress how happy I am about doing this conversion. There are no words to describe how much in love I am with the Adm'rul (the miniature, that is Wink )

VERY NICE! A cool take off on the infamous Adm'rul. I'm also a BIG fan of the Adm'rul Kurgan mini, & Saul IS a pretty cool dude too. WELL DONE, Amigo! thumbsup

Why didn't I notice this thread earlier?

GREAT JOB ELIAZAR!

I think all your conversions so far are excellent.

On the Adm'rul however... hmmm... The only thing that bothers me is the hat. Is it finished yet? I think it needs more volume and/or detail.

Otherwise a very cool mini.
