Although per discussion here a while back my current batch are going to have a khaki color, that being the closest color I had to the bamboo that was one of the alternates.
Next batch will be more color matched with yours - different tribes.
I thought I was getting a bit carried away with some of my armies - I'd have to pool pretty much all of my Indian armies to give your orcs a fight...
That or the Norman, Ottonian, Anglo-Norman, First Crusade alliance.
Wouldn't that be fun?
At TMP (The Miniatures Page) a number of readers found the original ‘look’ equally as well. I had thought about different skin tones to represent tribal differences, but the original two commands conveyed better an image strength.
I continued with the colour scheme and now the third command is completed but lack flocking.
Look fab. Seeing the snotlings has made me want to get mine out of storage and get some games of 8th in.
In a barefaced mugging of the topic I will stick em up at some point mainly cos I love em.
Unless mounted, all the Snotlings are based as ‘Goblin’ horde (5Hd). And surprisingly, this afternoon I uncovered another 10 horde elements raising their number to 52. Mixing Pump Wagons, Stone Trolls and Squiggs with them could squeeze three commands from that lot.
Of interest, the Warhammer Orcs & Goblins Army Supplement published in 2000 included a nice map of the tribes in the lands south of the Black Gulf; these included some nomadic tribes.
I definitely think the next two commands will be an all mounted corps.
Now I usually like my Orcs green. Maybe not the way that JRRT intended but the new (post GW) norm. That said there is green and GREEN and you originals were definitely GREEN! I think the new skin jobs on your orcs and snotlings is a definite improvement. Just the right skin tone to reflect menace.
