The Last of the Orcs

"The frontier moves with the sun and pushes the Red Man of these wilderness forests in front of it until one day there will be nowhere left. Then our race will be no more, or be not us."

Moving forward to our main antagonists, the Orcs of Dol Guldor. From what we can gather, the next hobbit movie, or the one after that, will have some sort of big old battle in Mirkwood. So this will hopefully be an accurate guess as to the participates.

The first hobbit movie introduced the new "hunter orcs"
Some sort of cross between the warg orcs in The Two Towers and Native Americans. Which in turn gave me some inspiration for how to make this army stand out.

I plan on taking, mainly war paint designs, from Mayan, Aztec, and Native American cultures. A very tribal feel for these orcs. The first couple of heroes are in they're beta test, no base work have been done, so judge those kindly.

The first orc will be a hunter orc captain from the Hobbit rulebook, and the 2nd will be Bolg. The enemy from the battle of five armies. From the 1-2 photos we have seen from the movie versions, his character could predominately be situated around Dol Guldor and the white orc could carry over to the battle. We will have to see. 

 Going to be using some green paint to make these brave heart warpaint pop on the orcs.
The silent shadows that will protect this creepy castle will be a castellan of Dol Guldor.

So hopefully this will be a quick tease as to the future evils that will be developing in the dungeons of FUBAD...
