Very nice, I especially like the shading on the loincloth :)

Perhapse a little more rust/battle damage on the Power Klaw. You know, paint chips on the red, and a little staining around the bolts etc.

Otherwise, a very nice paintjob :good:

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.

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.

I wouldnt wash the cables - it makes them look blotchery and odd...

Id covern then in a darker version of what youv got, and layer some drybrushing on them. That gives you the same darkness in the recesses, but with a 'cleaner' finish.

Also, the reds need a bit of highlighting in my opinion. Could just be the light, but they look a little flat (the faceplate and the powerklaw, not the trousers - they look great :))

Otherwise, the rusting on the bare metal looks ace :)
Nice job.

I like it, good work. However, the metals could stand another light wash, nothing big but it might just give it a bit more character.

The red plates on the gun and klaw..ya. I was wondering about highlighting that. Thanks. I'll get that done. :)

I washed the cables already. It came out pretty good this time. Not splotchy and bad, fairly even overall and it looks very dirty. I'm happy with it.

So just a little highlighting on the claw and maybe another wash on it..same for the shoota..and its done.

Any other suggestions? If not, I'll get it done and clearcoat 'er.
