I used the version of the miniature without a base and put it on one of Valandar's simple bases (the planks). I love how the base looks and having the higher quality base makes the model overall look better.
For painting, I decided to go with the traditional orc green colors and then went for the Blizzard color scheme for the armor, and then did everything else how I thought would look best. Everything printed great; the weapon is an awesome thickness for printing and strength, only had problems with the handle of the axe, but that was my fault, not a fault in the model.
Overall, great model as usual. A ton of fun to paint.
