I painted this Orc Big Un unit quite a while ago. It’s one of my favourite units from my horde. It’s just the standard boyz kit but I added all the spare shoulder pads I could, plus lots of little skull trophies to the models to help distiguish them from standard boyz. I also painted the skin a darker green to my standard boyz to further distiguish them. Finally, I pain-stakingly made plasticard shields for the whole 25 strong mob. I’ll detail how I made the shields in a future post. Read on for more pics.
Looking really good. Look forward to seeing the post on the shields.

I play Orcs and Goblins as well. I am very impressed with your yellow. I do Bad Moonz for 40k. I haven't decided on a color just yet for my fantasy Orcs.
Yellow isn't really a natural choice for fantasy. I've painted mine way too bright really, but I love yellow (my friends who have seen my new motorbike pics on facebook will tell you i'm obsessed). I painted all the clothes different shades of muted browns, this helps bringing back to the darker medieval theme a little.
Great looking units alround, but I really love the banners
