I tried to tread the middle path between doing a direct homage to the original paint scheme from the box and painting them to fit with my own orcs.
Here is the front row arranged with a frontage of six. I ty was important to me to use the Arcane armorials for the shields as these really are part of the original look and they fit in so well with the spike can commandos' back story. Another part of the story is the fact they wear plundered chaos armour so I have given a few of the pieces a nice green ink wash. Present on the originals but not as strong.
The next row shows even more shield designs, these are the original transferes scanned and printed onto sticky paper, then painted over the top. original post on this here, I can't believe this was in 2012!I have used my own orc skin tones and usual basing form my orc army but I believe they enough like the original paint jobs to show I tired.
From above the games eye view. The original box had seventeen of the commandos, I have hundreds of these guys so i may paint up a few more.
One of my favourite figures is the musician/shaman Bambrag. And I've just noticed a big splodge of brown on the troopers shoulder from highlighting the crossbow. How embarrassing.
