Yeah it was a good idea but it's failed me lol, I've repainted it now and it looks much better, I've lost my camera and then boxed the Orks because believe it or not they're all table top quality.... all 2000 points!

Most of the army was dude to xmas presents, I tend to get everything I want year around so I never know what to ask for so I ask for GW. tbh all I've brought this year is a box of boyz and a BA Dread that is still in it's box


Does everyone use GW paint to spray with? I have a compressor and 2 air guns but even the brand new paint tends to bung the guns up, but they are pretty cheap air guns, the money went on the compressor

A few more finishing touches and they're all done!! After 12 years my first completed army, I'm so happy with myself.

Then I'm going to go back and do details, icons and some free hand. I'm also going to lighten the skin tone of the Boyz and add some definition to the larger Orkz.

Also need to add things like Squigs to some of them but that can wait.

So here is attempt number 2 at the final trukk



Then we have an addition to one of the killa kanz in honour of his epic orkyness by killing one of his own Battlewagonz and then losing me the game (that I'm taking as a win) by killing 4 Boyz removing the fearlessness and making them run away from the only objective that was uncontested on the last turn.



The squad (which he also killed one of)



The other 3 that did absolutely nothing except distract a big bug thingy away from other targets (so more helpful but ultimately less entertaining then the other squad)



Still needs a couple of arms

Then we have my Lootaz that were EPICORKZZ they actually hit some thingz and killed some big thing that I called a mummy that was spawning little thingz that I called roaches



Full army pic is coming this weekend when they get there first game as a complete army :D

Hope you like them!

Congrats on finishing the painting up of your army. Twelve years? How many points have you painted up? (I'm still painting my Orks up, but I've never considered that it might take me a decade of painting.)

Army shot is incoming, I've spent the last week playing in Southampton with some old Uni mates. Orks wtfpwned!!!! Love them so much, tbh for most of the 12 years it was BAs and IG but I sold them all about 6 years ago to pay for some of uni so atm I just have the 2.5 armies, about 4k of BA, 6k of IG and 2.5k of Orks (Empire doesn't really count )

So here are the army shots, I was waiting for a day where I could get some good pics but a traditional British winter isn't complying.

They're not that dark really



Some of the boyz next to the rides



The last ride and its crew! behind them are the shootas and the kans



Close up of the Nobz



I'm never leaving the lootaz behind again, the new rules are amazing to them



Koptas are probably the most Orky thing eva! They make noise go fast shoot and FLY lol



Deff Dreads arm fell off



So to sumarise where I am with these
fix the travel damage
paint up a few more arms
a few details on a few models like give the warboss a attack squig
few magnets on the vehicles
the 2nd battlewagon needs its Kannon painted
about 20 bases need to be done

But for me they're so so complete! A whole army with only one grey arm!
I'm so chuffed at myself!

That is a lot of Deathskulls and for that I approve (+rep). If you are still having trouble making your skin less flat without them looking, well not grubby (and therefore Orky) the only thing I would suggest is to paint 'em up like you have done already but then put some lighter green over their raised bits - you know muscles, eye ridges - but then to wash them with a 50/50/xx mix of green and brown and some water. I'd do this on a tester first but it was just something you said in an earlier post.

My Orks are lovely and bright green/blue but if you were to wash them down again I reckon they'd be grubby enough.
