I've begun constructing the base. Before I ever started this figure, I began brainstorming what sort of scene he'd be in. He's got a somewhat different pose for an orc. In his right had is an ax, but it's down to his side and relaxed, not ready to strike. His left arm up with a finger outstretched. Perhaps he's pointing at something or making a challenge. I decided to go a different route and have him reaching out to gently touch something. The kit came with a couple scenic accessories (though no true base). One of those pieces was a small section of tree with a lizard on it. So I decided to build up a larger tree and have the orc reaching out towards the lizard. I've only just begun constructing the scene. I began with some cork for the ground and then twisted together wires to form the body of the tree. I then pulled them apart at the top for some branches and at the bottom for some roots. I got it all into position and then glued on the part of the tree with the lizard. Up next I will take some modeling putty and build the rest of the tree on top of the wire frame. I'm not much of a sculptor, but hopefully that will be within my ability level!
