The first step I did in painting them was to give the figures a heavy drybrushing with Ceramcoat "Metallic Pewter". I then drybrushed their fur garments; using Americana "Asphaltum" followed by Americana "Mississippi Mud" for the orc with one sword, and GW "Codex Grey" followed by GW "Fortress Grey", and GW "Shadow Grey" followed by Duncan "Slate Blue" for the bottom and top respectively on the orc with two swords. I knew there would be a little overlap of the fur colors onto the chainmail since drybrushing isn't precise, but I did the best I could to keep the colors separate, knowing I would go back later and neaten the edges with a fine brush.
After all this had dried, I gave both figures a wash with GW "Devlan Mud" wash. When the wash had dried, I added highlights to their skin using the original "Deep Khaki" mixed with a little Aleene's "Dusty Khaki. I then painted the eyes with Americana "Buttermilk", going back and adding a black pupil in each eye. I also went back and highlighted their teeth with this color. I also added a little GW "Codex Grey" highlighting on the belts, pouches, etc. Finally, I added some GW "Chainmail" highlights to the Orcs' swords, armor and chainmail.
All in all, I'm pleased with how these orcs are turning out. It should be an impressive sight when I eventually gather the horde together.
