So this all started with this thread: First Time Painter (Orks), C&C Please
. And here are the first boyz I did with their bases finally painted up (one of the critiques I received):
And I went to work on another mob of boyz. (Another five--for me this seems to be the right size. Ten is too much to tackle at one go for me.) And here they are:
Like my prior thread, I'm posting a couple of front-and-back close-up shots of a couple of the boyz.
I do plan on touching up the fur trim on his helmet. I seem to have issues with this and horn tips.
And here's another boy:
I'm only painting them up to tabletop standard as this is the level of my painting skills at this point. I will try to take more care with the Nobs and even greater care with the Warboss and other HQ units, though I don't know how much that will affect the look of the models.
And finally, here are boyz mobbed up:
Oh, and here's what I did to paint these boyz up....
I got these second-hand and they were already undercoated black and had their skin painted not too neatly with Goblin Green washed with Devlan Mud. Additionally, I drybrushed the skin with Scorpion Green and washed it heavily with Thraka Green.
I painted using two to three thinned down coats of the following:
---Mechrite Red for eyes, and sometimes armor, shirts, bracers, tunics, trousers, straps, boots; Blood Red Angel on some of the armor;
---Scorched Brown or Calthan Brown for leather straps, trouser stitches, bracer stitches, belt, holster, and boots and thongs; and drybrushed with Calthan Brown or Scorched Brown or just washed with Devlan Mud or Badab Black
---Boltgun Metal for weapons and any rivets, washed (repeatedly) with Devlan Mud and/or Badab Black, and occasionally highlighted edges with Mithril Silver;
---Dheneb Stone, Bleached Bone, and Skull White for fingernails and teeth; and occasionally a wash of Devlan Mud;
---Codex Grey drybrushed (sometimes a bit too much) onto the trousers; and
---Dwarf Bronze for shoota glyphs and jewelry, sometimes drybrushed with Burnished Gold.
The base was painted with three to four coats of thinned down Graveyard Earth, drybrushed with Snakebite Leather and Bleached Bone.
This won't just be a painting plog though. I do plan on including kunvershuns and uvver projeks (of an orky naytur).
Mo' boyz of course.
