Thread: Skin color of the Goblin races.

  1. #1

    Skin color of the Goblin races.

    I was wondering what the standard skin color of goblins and Orcs is. That is if they have one. Or do they have many shades and colors?
    Also, I like the new goblins and looking forward to seeing more in the future.

    My brother uses a reddish skin tone for his Otherworld pig faced orcs and it looks very good, much better than the pale green he first used and, dare I say it, more realistic. I think it would also be a suitable shade for American Indians if I can ever persuade him to paint some of them so it is a normal sort of skin colour, not anything outlandish.

    Vince Venturella recently did some cool blueish orcs.
    But I am also curious about their colours in the lore.
    4Ground?

    I like both of those ideas. The reddish sounds more realistic. And the idea of Blueish orcs reminds me of the old game Black Stone.
    hmmm Maybe a bluegrey? Kind of like a Gorilla. And maybe reddish for the goblins. I have no problem with standard Green types but it would make since if different tribes also or nations also had different features.
    We know the Humans shown so far seem to fallow European skin types. but now I am wondering about the Elves too.

    One artwork for LoFR clearly shows green color for orcs. I am pretty sure it was one of the artwork choices in Backerkit.

    They could ofcourse have a wider range in skin colours then just shades of green

    I'm going to paint my orcs and gobs in classic green as the game feels like a game from an older generation imo. I have started painting my 4A goblins which have a sea faring look to their aesthetic. I have chosen green for their skin tone, but have added black blue graduations to their ears and eyes to make them look a little more different and the darker tints contrast well against the lighter green colors.

    My orcs will be green but darker than the goblins to represent their tougher skin.
