Default Against the Imperium. . . . The Boyz

As some of you guys may of noticed I now have 3 plogs on the go

My problem with the Blood Angels is I have to either strip and repaint my tanks (I need to darken them somehow) and I'm bored of painting my Imperial Guard (again loads of tanks and I can't decide on the paint scheme for them),

SOOOOO now it's time for some Orks!

I really am after some feedback, I think they need to jump out more, they seem a little flat to me, the issue I am having is I don't want the green to be brighter as these guys are meant to be double 'ard Barstewards therefore dark.

It's also my first attempt at free hand (the shoulders) and I'm pretty happy with it tbh









ps please excuse the drugs, I have a broken shoulder

Alright Hellados, heres my suggestion to help reolve the flat feel you have going on. Without making the skin to much brighter, you will need to pick a shade brighter for small highlights of the skin. You can hit up areas around the fingers/mouth/face/pimped out muscles... to help bring out the dark green in your boyz. If it gets to bright hit it with some thraka green wash. I would also recommend using the green that you already used with a shade brighter 75/25 to make the highlights, make sure to thin it out.

As for your free hand...GREAT JOB! The squars looks pretty damn good.

Hope that little bit of advice helps.

Regards,
DoE

@ DoE I think that's gonna have to be the plan, I may put another wash of Ogryn Flesh on them to dull them then bring parts up a tone or two

@ cirs85 where i got the above idea so thanks for the link and welcome to the site, just had a look at your blog, like the fantasy guys, I have an Empire army to paint at some point. . . . . .

So a small update and some advice please guys, I have started to paint up my 1st Battlewagon and I think it's too white, I am thinking go faster ('racing stripes') in red because as we all know red ones go faster but i need some advice.

also I cant decide on the red wheels, they dont seem to fit some how.

I think the red wheels don't seem to fit because they're the only source of red on the vehicle. Racing stripes would probabley balance them out.

LOL...Pazzzmck!

I would suggest maybe a sepia wash on the white, test it out first on a part that not so noticable. It should help give it a dirtier feel.

Nice Christmas lights by the way

@ GrimzagGorwazza I may put in a few red pannels, I see what you mean by the wheels, it is definitely what was/is wrong

@ Disciple_of_Ezekiel weathering is coming once I like the colour scheme

the red on the stripes is going to be more BA red then it is here, this is just to gimmie an idea and to see if I definitely like it. The wheels need to be 'scratched' more i think. . . . . .

think it needs something else to break the blue up, some 'white flames' and maybe WAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH scrawled down the side may work




hehehehehe i love orks
