Not been on the site for aaaages. Just thought I'd pop in and show some more of my recent redoing of older models. Got these from an old mate and stripped and repainted them. They were a mess before, painted in Sunburst Yellow and Blood Red.

I used super basic colours: Mythril Silver. Blood Red. Scorpion, Darkangels, and Goblin greens. Chaos Black. Cheapo Leather Brown.

Skull White basecoat all over.

Mythril Silver (chainmail, helmets and shoulder padding), Leather Brown and Bleached Bone (cloth items and boots) and Blood Red (symbols and eyes).
Extremely watered down Black wash on the silver and red, then a Blood Red drybrush highlight on the Red symbols afterward.

Blocker's knee skulls and fur decorations (boots and horns) were Bleached Bone base with watered Leather Brown wash. Blocker horns were Bleached Bone base with not so watered Leather Brown wash.

Skin was done using Scorpion Green base and a watered Darkangels Green 'wash' for the Thrower, Blitzers and Liners and used Scorpion Green as a drybrush highlight.

The Blockers were done with Goblin Green base, Darkangels Green 'wash' and Goblin Green highlight.

For my first attempt at any kind of Ork, I think I did a good job.

Cheers guys. Nice to know my colour scheme works. I've seen a few BB Orks and they're all painted yellow and red. I thought a medieval armoured look would be a bit different from the norm.
Makes them look like they've made the armour by hand out of sheet metal and scrap they found lying about. An "armour up and off to play and sod the girly paint job" kind of feel.

Hey! Girls paint well too and we don't always use girly colors. T^T
Lol. Anyhow, looks good, though I think the silver parts can do with another wash of badab black or some "rust" effects just to make it be more "ork-y" Though I don't play BB, and they're your models so that's up to you. :)

I was on about Orks having softy decorations and pretty colours :p
Rust effect is an idea, I never thought about it. Thanks for the idea!

No problem. I actually found that about a 1:1.5~2 mix of Reaper Minature's Scorched Metal : Blazing orange mix watered down or just stippled makes for a really good rust.

Watered down 1/3 Cheapo Leather Brown and 2/3 Fiery Orange with just the tiniest touch of the original metal (silver, gold etc) mixed in works well too.

Hahaha! Guess that would too, just easier since Scorched Metal's already metallic. And I don't know what people have, so i was just trying to be helpful. :) But I'll keep that in mind the next time I run out of SM.

Speaking of rust effect. Just a quick pic of my rusty drum ;)

Using Cheapo Leather Brown, Fiery Orange and Mythril Silver.
Oil spill effect is pva glue mixed with brown and black and painted on in layers.

I know the NFL isn't big in the UK but you should consider painting the red symbols black and silver. They're called the Orcland Raiders as I believe. A play on the Oakland Raiders of the NFL whose colors are Black and Silver. Also, get an old decriepted model and he can be the owner.

Check out some of their fans: http://www.theoffside.com/files/2010/12/raider-nation-black-hole.jpg

Already have a name for them matey, cheers anyway. Will be working on a paintjob over the next few days to bring the armour up to date with my new banners.
Here's an experimental sample of a banner.

Recently dug out my Orcs and stripped them using the Dettol technique... and decided to get back on Heresy for a bit...

These were how I had them before, but they're totally stripped now (Dettol is a miracle), hopefully can use them as a stepping stone to get back into painting again. I haven't made anything for about 4 years.

Will update as I get on...

Wow thats an old post to be resurrected, though in the other hand looks to be a good job here. Well done always like to see some ork bloodbowl.

Pitty it seems that the other images are lost to the warp. Wouls have liked to see the transition.

Ah, that's the original pictures :D
I noticed as well the images had vanished so I reposted the old ones.

The models are totally stripped now, new images coming soon over the next couple weeks as soon as I can get some paint lol! All mine has dried up.
