Nice work on the ork warboss and I agree that the shading on the loin cloth is well done. I also quite like the green tone of the skin but I would have to agree that the claw could do with some 'dirtying' up.
The skin was simple to do. I based in Dark Angel green and then semi-dry brushed a 3:1 Scorpion green/Skull White over it..then did a 1:1 Scorpion green/skull white for highlighting the skin..veins, ridges on the face, etc..and then washed it all with a thinned down Ogryn Flesh to darken it and dirty up the skin a little. Cant see it in the picture, but the recesses are brownish because it just looks better than leaving the DA green as the shadowing.
Done with the washing the metals..did another wash on the pants as well as touched up the highlights a little on them..finished and washed the shoota, only a single wash instead of the double wash i did on the rest of the metals.
Looking good. Those AoBR models are always miscast in some way, but as I commented earlier to an AoBR Marines post, it's always cool to see them crafted in to something easy on the eyes. I agree the metals and wire insulation look a little too clean for an Ork. A little more wear and tear as far as color is concerned would go a long way, but it looks excellent otherwise.
The metals in the picture are washed out by the sun. In person, they look alot dingier and rusty. The cables, yeah. I agree, but I'm not really sure how to give them some more wear and tear..I've tried washing them..looked like crap. Atleast with a brown wash. I could always try another color wash and see how it looks..
Edit: trying brown wash again..a little heavier this time. Wet, it looks good, but we'll see how it looks when it dries.
