Well, the poll is closed, the results are in and they look compelling.But, in the true spirit of online polls I'm going to do what I want to regardless! I'll explain why:
In the multi-racial horde that is coming together to to challenge my Dwarf Host I have the following species in roughly decreasing order of size/toughness. (Yes, I know that if I follow the FW rules I cant put all these in the same army- nor can I in WHFB, but hey they're my figures.)
- Greater Orcs
- Hob Goblins
- Half Orcs
- Goblin rabble (lesser goblins)
Thats 8 separate although somewhat related races, and I'd like to be able to subtly distinguish between them by skin colour. (Yes, I realise that to confuse a troll with a lesser goblin you'd have to be extremely short sighted no matter what colour I paint them!)
So i'm going to paint them all in slightly different shades of the same basic colours I highlighted. Broadly using darker tones at the top of the list and much lighter ones lower down.
So, well done, If you voted Quagmire, Drab or Moss - Then you won. If you voted for stupid green - please report the the Games Workshop reconditioning unit. If you voted for "something else" and then failed to leave any kind of comment here or on the forums above then thanks for being so helpful :-)
I have a couple of units undercoated (Hob Goblins and Orcs) so will do some demo and WIP pictures in the next few days.
