So before I start anything in this project log I must give thanks where it is due. A sincere heart felt thanks goes out to JustindKates for taking all of the pictures for this project log. This man does some seriously amazing work with a camera and a lens and is the only reason this log is possible. If you like to see some of his miniature work check out his project log titled Raven Guard pic heavy or something like that.

If you'd like to see some of his photo talent then go check out his book Sanguis Vitam Est translated into English (A Vampire book for all those sick and tired of the pansy vampires that hollywood has plastered world wide thanks to Twilight and those who love to see Playboy models gone Vamp). Seriously go check it out you won't be disappointed. Alright shameless plug over now onto the project log.

I like Justin took a nice long break from the hobby and when I came back came back jumping in with both feet and decided to paint a 131 model ork army crazy I know.

First just wanted to show all of the models that will actually be in the finished army. Also included is the warboss from the black reach set which actually isn't going to be in the army but I felt was a pretty cool paint job so far even though he is still a WIP.

The first squad I did was really a test squad for some of the color choices and techniques I'd be using. As a whole I was pleased with the squad however I am going to be changing the colors on the cloth that is wrapped around certain wrists and guns on these guys. I could upload all the pictures for these guys however it might crash the server so I'm only putting up a few so everyone can get the idea.

Lastly for the time being is a squad that I have that is about 85% done along with the shock attack gun another model that won't be in the army but was to damn cool not to buy and paint.

They look really good, you may want to remove some of the mould lines before you paint them next time but otherwise they look really good. :eek:k:

agreed about the mold lines I have to admit that when I started putting everything together I fell victim to the kid in the candy store syndrome and literally could not wait to start painting and hence why the mold lines are still on

Not enough blue in there to be deathskulls. Red shirts:shok: are they a bunch of evil suns sneaking in the army? More blue is needed really for deathskulls it is their lucky color so put it on everything. Some lucky tattoos and on random bits will really make it a deathskull army.

The SAG is still a great weapon so you may want to try it in your army some times just for giggles and see what happens.

About the shirts the army is a foot sloggin mob army and I need a quick and easy way to tell the squads apart for when i go to tournaments so each squad has different colored shirts. Also it can't be seen but all the squads have a decent amount of blue i.e. some of the ones who have the space available have blue and white check patterns on their backs so on and so forth

Nice work... hey, I wanna pick your brain on Thursday about how you did the gravel on the base for your Warboss... When I do the Skaven, I'm thinking that would look good...

Glad to see you on here too...
