More Middle Earth, as I seem to be on a kick with this game. My Rohan Battle Company has expanded faster than I can keep up with painting, so to while away the time in between, I've started up a Mordor (i.e., orc) BC in lieu.

They were surprisingly challenging to paint, in that the palette one usually sees with orcs (at least in ME) is rather drab. Getting a range of distinct colours on the models, while keeping them relatively desaturated, was tougher than I anticipated. It kind of brought home the extent to which I rely on colour to define models on the table.
By the time this goes up, I'll have had some games with them, but it should prove an interesting shift from Rohan. The latter are an extremely balanced / all-round force in game, while orcs seem to rely more on combat and numbers. Time will tell what suits my play style better.
