Default Da golden waaagh!!!!

Da golden waaagh shall serve as my continuing work on my ork bad moons and another orky projects that catch my fancy along the way.

This project was started late 2012 when i decided to repaint my then deathskulls into the more regal bad moons. So far progress is very slow. Shots below are what I've done in the year of 2015 during my time at university and increased free time. The Following list shows many of the models that i curently have RED shows Currently Painted models, will try to update as i go.


Warboss, Mega Armour
Mad Doc Grotsnik
Warboss; Power Klaw
Big Mek; KFF (May need to repaint for better skin and metal colors)
Warboss, big choppa

3 Gamesworkshop Mega Nobs
1 Khromlech Mega Nobs (Klaw and Kombi-Skorcha)
3 Khromlech Mega Nobs (Mostly power klaws and shootas)
~40 Nobs (Varity of loadouts)
Burnas (20)
Lootas (~12)
Boys (~80)
Boys (19+ nob), with Khromlech armored torsos
50 more boys with khromlech armored torsos
Gretchin mob (30); 3 runt herds
Dakka jets, 2 (Original + Black Flame)
Four Deffdreads (armed with a variety of weapons and so far the two of which are painted Rathalos Dread armed with a ravager blade and a dread with babel spear and nargacuga armor)
11 deffkopta rokkits
Three Battle Wagons (Varity of Loadouts, including kill cannon)
Two Battle Wagons (One painted the other almost completed)
Trukk
Stompa
Two Leman Russes /looted wagons

Two knight titans (to be looted titans)
Terrain (city ruins which come with the renagade box set and the battle for macragge set)



Here are some of the many images Ive got floating around of the DA GOLDEN WAAAGH!!!! Have been mainly posting to Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/Da-Golden-W...8989/timeline/ ) under the Name DA GOLDEN WAAAGH, mainly due to a much easier phone upload system, but here is some of the work Ive been getting up to over 2015.

The second Dakka jet

Bit of a close up on the wing (as it was drying)

Mordiki the lucky stikk bearer

Converted Grosnik

And a shot of most of the painted models at the minute, including Warboss in mega armour, the new Mega nobs, grot snik, KFF mek, battlewagon and of course the last surviving Deathskull as a testimate to what came before DA GOLDEN WAAAGH!!!

Thats all so far any thoughts?

Love the yellow, but maybe muddy it up, its abit to clean for my association of yellow and Orks ;)

Loving the Jet since its that Flyer and its variations are for my the best Flyer that GW have put out, the painting on the wings I'm not sure, I cant make my mind up if the yellow and the black need to be reversed or if the black needs to go altogether and be replaced with a different colour.

Overall I like the yellow you've achieved and would love a step by step guide on how you've done it. That being said it looks a bit to clean for Orks, maybe try a wash or two and see how that turns out. Also you might want to try and add another light or two to get the lower sections of the models. Right now its to dark to make out much below gob level.

Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?

Luv em! I think only the battlewagon needs a wash to muddy up the yellow a bit, give some definition to the panels.
I particularly like your lucky stikk bearer, and the MA Warboss conversion is top notch, very dynamic.

Coming soon! Got half of a tutorial sorted just need to put time aside to finish the painting.

As to lighting still am trying to work out the best ways to get these photos working, the new ones are better but still more work is needed.

This is a nice Waaagh! I like the yellows - the paint is smooth and this is a difficult color to pull off.
I would have to agree on models being to 'clean' for orkz (but it just might be, I weather heavily my orkz).
One thing that bugs me just a little bit is the chipping you have on the Mega Nobz and DakkaJet - it would look so much better if you would add a black background before painting metal chipping.
You have chosen probably most difficult colors yellow and black (white is really close) and it looks great!
