Orc Slaves of Ancient Times
Based on a lot of valuable feedback from here.
Heads have been sculpted first, since they'll be handy to have finished
for posing and sculpting the bodies. 12 head variants for 6 bodies will
give space for choice. I do not have the materials to swiftly photograph
the heads sufficiently well together (also besides a WHFB Orc head for
scale) and size comparison. Will have to fix something soon. In the
meanwhile, here we have some ugly, warty, scarred slaves, with hides
sculpted to hint at roughness and weather-bitten skin. Notes per head.
Enjoy, or get disgusted as you see fit.
1: Face cage with lock for key placed at nose. Roughly hammered iron
bands riveted together. Nailed into head. Angry face and upright ears
tell us why his head is locked in.
2: Face bars.
3: Mix between scold's bridle and dirt-eater mask. Head is the smallest of the bunch. Will need some jaw inflation.
4: Evil dwarf fantasy version of owner stamp to the forehead. Runic
plate riveted to forehead, with chainmail veil and sewn-shut lips.
5: Stitched lips with bull nose ring. Slaves are like cattle, pull them along! Swollen bruise on top of head.
6: Head in a sack. My brother's idea.
8: Jawless head. Stark cruelty. Based on WWI wounded without jaws.
9: Limp hair head. A nest for lice, sure, but it's intended to convey the pathetic look.
10: Open mouth face. Tongue sticking out with both tusks broken off. Raised scar on one cheek.
11: 1/3 flayed head. Transition head to go along with the one below.
There will be some few flayed or partially flayed body parts, and one
very unlucky sod who at least have both arms unshackled and both hands
12: Flayed head. Small skin patches remaining at the back of the head, for transition to bodies with skin.
