Heroic Warriors - Orko

Orko is He-Man and Prince Adam's diminutive sidekick-cum-wizard. A powerful wizard on his home planet Trolla, his spells don't seem to work right on Eternia and go wrong more often than not. As such, Orko's tragedy is that he is often seen as incompetent and the court's jester rather than its wizard.



The model was sculpted by Didier Fancagne. I only changed the eyes to make them more cartoon-accurate, which is merely a matter of personal preference. The base is a resin blank from Fenris Games, with my usual stone texture added and a clear flying stand from EM-4.

The main heroic warriors from the Filmation cartoon, still missing the Sorceress
Skeletor and Evil-Lynn's magic pitched against Orko's. That'll end well...

  1. So cute! He looks great with your other figures. I like this version with the golden staff, it's a nice variant from the "magic hands" version from Quest Miniatures.

    1. Thank you! The sculpted eyes were a bit too realistic for my taste and Orko is one figure where I wanted to keep the cartoony look.

    2. Oh yeah, I have the same model and I haven't painted him yet. I definitely want to use your method done here.
