Thomas had bought a bag of assorted assembled but unpainted LotR figures to get hold of the Gondorians, if I remember correctly. He off-loaded the rest of the figures, orcs and goblins, on me (thank you!). They've been in the plastics mountain for far too long now.
All were already assembled (with far too much glue) but still had mould lines and needed some cleaning up. This batch, the orcs, were already spray-painted white, and unfortunately the paint was rather grainy. I coated them with another layer of primer after cleaning up. As usual I washed them with a black wash to get see the details clearly.
I opted for a quick job on these as they probably will be seen in a horde of similar figures, to be quickly slaughtered by the heroes J. Block painting with a limited number of paints, and then washed.
