First Unit unit finished
« on: July 16, 2014, 05:51:33 PM »
Hi All,

I've finished my first unit and wanted to show you all. The eagle eyed of you will notice that these are Copplestone Orcs. I have the misfortune of coming to Warmaster after GW had abandoned it. Which means I've had to pay some silly prices on ebay. Anyway, as it's my first unit I didn't want to open up the precious blister packs in case I made a mess of the paint job.

I'm quite pleased with my efforts. A lot down to the pages of good advice on this forum. The only down side is it took me six months to finish, so it'll be some time before I put together an army. Which is a shame as it looks like there are quite a few people up for doing battle around London!! Maybe a skirmish, unit on unit ;)

Great job! Whereabouts are you located? I'm in Surrey but work in Twickenham so can travel - I have a few armies if you do fancy a game!
Looking for Warmaster players for games around london and surrey.

Very well done! I like very much the green skin tone

My club is west of Londinium, in east berkshire, if you would care to venture that far out, one Friday evening!

Really great work - those Copplestone units are really good.

Hi,
Thanks for the feedback.
I used Toons' formula for the Orc's skin: Warboss green, Athonian camoshade and Nurgling green, although I forgot to then do a glaze of Waywatcher green, D'oh!

Madgamers looks fun, I may well come along one evening. My unit vs the rest of you!

Cheers

Happy to hear that someone liked/used it :)
