orcs ! an orcish skirmisher ...and a sketch of orc nobles !

an orcish skirmisher ... orcish light infantry . used to harass/and scout enemy armies.

an orcish skirmisher

a sketch of a clan of orcish nobles. these orcs control a wide swath of land that overlaps with dwarves and humans. the more provincial, and warlike, orcs are represented by shamans/warlords and barbarians(their appearance is also more 'orclike'-thicker necks more prominent fangs/tusks)...the orcs of the cities and courts(various princelings/merchants/necromancers/clerics) actually more resemble half orcs(thinner faces and fangs that are often filed down), these orcs reside in the lands that border human cities and outposts.

one makes a mistake to assume orcs are crude..orcish guile and cunning is legendary amongst their most hated enemy(the dwarves). orcish court politics would at times make even a drow gasp for breath :D.
