Orctober: Painting Orcs IV

Domestic duties got in the way of much painting today, so only one small step on the Orctober journey...

Stage Nine:

For Orcs (and other simple grubby types), a simple way of shading miniatures is to apply a wash of Army Painter Strong Tone ink. Normally I would only do this to the clothing and leather work, but I wasn't happy with the level of contrast on the flesh I painted yesterday, so I gave the flesh areas an ink wash as well. This provides the depth, tomorrow some highlights.
