Warhammer: Age of Reckoning Orc Warboss

Above Miniature Points: 2
Current Point Total: -250

I'm painting this miniature for a friend. It is the Orc Warboss miniature from Warhammer: Age of Reckoning's Collector's Edition. I converted it from it's static pose by standing him atop an Empire Cavalryman that has been unhorsed and stood on. I added the shield shaped like an Orc head, and the scenic base is from cork. Pics as I take them.

Here's a listing of my current projects in broad categories, once done they will be stuck through:

  • 1 Land Raider
  • 8 Rhino Chassis
  • Random servitors and characters

So I have at least 200 points to paint before I get to buy anything else. Small Fimo one-offs are always helpful, but I don't want to rely on that to get me anywhere when I'm under such a mountain of stuff.
Current Point Total: - 1,000,000

I don't rightly know how many miniatures I have to paint. However, here's how I'd like to document my projects:

-Picture of Original or Assembled Miniature
-Choose a Color Palette
-Explain Techniques (if using a new one)
-Work-in-Progress Pictures
-Finished Pro Shot

Techniques will be coming from the Cool Mini or Not book. I'm going to start at drybrush and move up from there. Let me know if there are any techniques you'd like to see me try.
