I've painted sixty orcs. These are a bit better equipped than your usual rabble, but still aren't elite troops.

Last millennium, I had a small 2nd edition Tyranid force. I gave them away about 15 years ago, and only have a few terrible photos to remember them by.
|I hope they've had a good life
|Nicely converted weapons, IMNSHO.
|This was a pain to assemble
|Love my Screamer Killer.
|Hunter Slayers. Came in blisters of three and units of five.
Never change, GW.
Last year, I painted some Termagants I got off eBay for potential Stargrave/ Five Parsecs use, and quite enjoyed doing so. I used Contrasts Gryph-Hound Orange and Skeleton Horde, which were a massive time-saver.
I thought I would get some melee bugs, and then a Xenos Rampant slippery slope occurred which I threw myself down...
|Bugs, Mr Rico! Forty-eight of them!
I got some MDF movement trays from Knights of Dice, which are great.
Weighted base for infamously unstable figures
And now I need some balance with more Termagants. And apparently there's a big brood-mother bug that spawns these critters...

These sculpts are from 2003, but somehow I've never painted any Gondorians before. I started with a Gunmetal spray base with some lighter drybrushing, then used a grey wash (Contrast Basilicanum Grey). I find this dulls the armour without being too dark. I used a pale grey on the shields.
