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-Waaagh-630659176948989/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.

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!

Thanks for the praise.

As to the comments for the colors being too clean, this is basically my preference for this army and also proably a bit of an over reaction from the last ork army that i had (metals were basically orange with rust effects that they had) might post a shot of the dakka jet in that scheme later or you can look to the "Death skulls boss", certainly didn't look as cool as these.

As to the difficulty with painting these colors I've uploaded some pictures and tutorial yesterday and it should be live as soon as i get the aproval from one of the MODS. You will see how i do this color scheme. As to the black backround, i find a better effect on yellow with white backround (as i said in the tutorial or even stalk my user photos they are there.

It does look cool, and in the end it is up to you and your vision how your army should look like - sticktoittivness :p

Sorry I did not catch white background on the photos, I still prefer black for more contrast - but again if you like white more go with white :D

Again good job on the models and keep the coming

Well no real progress as of yet just noticed the tutorial has be let through: http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/showthread.php?t=201794 . Hopefully that makes sense to everyone.

Also in regards to the original paint scheme the bellow dakka jet, this may be the reason for the flip to a much cleaner scheme:

Also this is a very old shot, about 4 years ago now that the mean reason for the dodgey photo (old camera too).

Here is a little experiment i did a few months ago, matching my phone case to the color scheme of Da Golden Waaagh. Thought it would be a good thing to share to see what you all think of it.



It is basically the same as the tutorial scheme but has coats of 'Ard coat technical paint between them hopefully to increase durability, this didn't work with much of the paint being scratched or rubbed off in key contact points. planning to repaint and use some automotive clear coat to make it last a little longer.

Any thoughts?

More progress, not much time on the internet so haven't uploaded these as they go just this slog. Enjoy.













These if you cannot tell are the initial work on the piece for this months painting competition. Got some time off tomorrow and Tuesday so hope to finish it then.

Any thoughts? It is basically the yellow and the checks on the leg so far but more to go. Metallics next.

1000TH POST!!!!!!!!!!

Okay now that is out of the way my post for this second is going to be a conversion project I started last night the plan is to forge two of my personal favorite hobbies into one awesome miniature: Monster Hunter and Warhammer 40000.

The plan is a follows
-Convert my Ork Dreadnaughts into warriors of renown with Armour and equipment worthy of such a task.
-Each will have their own weapon as with the game and the showcasing of weapons available

Current thoughts are for Tactical blade or Ravenger blade and Rathalos Armor after that pondering the idea of a Heavy Bowgun and Gravious Armor. Next would be Nargacouga armor and Dual Swords probably Dual Dragons. Next I might go either a lance/gunlance and Zinogre armor. This all depends on if i can get this Rathalos and Greatsword to work.

Below are the weapons I'm talking about above the Tactical bladeand Reaver Blade .





This is the Rathalos Armor i hope to emulate on the dread (mainly thinking helmet, pauldrons and chest).



Next is what I've done so far mainly cutting the Blade out of plasticard (Well old Icecream box) and begun cannibalizing of the dread in preparation for sculpting


This is the stack order for the blade in these sections Im trying to bulk out the weapon before sculpting.







Final shot for scale of the weapon I'm planning to create for this dread. Any thoughts tips and tricks for doing this sort of project i haven't done much like this before.

Many of you probably don't know of what I'm basing this off but hopefully still sounds to be an interesting idea, for you all. Of those that i know have an interest and hope they will chime in with ideas for weapons and armor to do is @Loli and @Deus Mortis

main issues i have is its really clean.

you power claw has blood but if it had just been used to cut somone it would be all over the place and wouldn't be quite so bright red. if its dried on then it would be faded and again darker.

the flames look good however it doesnt look like its generating any light the shading on the gun doesnt match the light source.

The last item is I think you need to break up the yellow a bit in the torso and arms, with your other mega nobs you have patches of just plain metal to see where parts are seperate maybe try and Metal up in between some of the Panels .

Hope this is Helpful.
