Default Orc Warboss with ''Great'' Weapon

Here's the Orc Warboss on foot with a great weapon. The axe is freaking huge and I compared it with the Bloodthirsters axe, just a tad bit smaller. This thing can cleave an Ogre in two.

Its awesome mate, i love the use of red to draw your attention to the face, which is a strong focal point on any miniature. It works very well, as otherwise the axe would dominate the composition.

The battered rusty equipment is great too, a nice characterful touch.

Big thumbs up.

Komrad, I've said it, everyone has said it. How can you paint brilliantly everytime?

Like Gareth said, the first thing I was drawn too was the face. Combined with the axe, and the base it really gives it the feel of being imposing, just as an Orc boss should be.

The use of the wolf hide on the back also gives a nice extra touch. It is a wolf, right?

Personally, I'm always drawn to the face of a miniature anyway, just as your natural focal point when looking at other people is their eyes. Personally, I'd say that red draws your attention away from the face. It is fitting for a warboss to be adorned with bright colours, but I think this red is too vibrant for such an otherwise dark model.

Don't get me wrong, it's absolutely magnificent, and I particularly love the tusks, but I'm just not going to jump on the 'red attention-drawing' bandwagon. :P

Excellent and awesome, as always... but I don't like the base, the warboss looks like his right leg is slipping off the rock and he's about to fall... :P I think you should use a bigger rock to avoid this effect

Well done again Komrad. I have seen it in real life, but in the pic it is even more stunning that how I see it in real life.
