28/09/10 The Waaagh continues Page 2, post 13, Go see now....
New pic in page 3, post 24.

Starting a new army, so thought start a project log, documnet it for future generations! I'm starting an ork whaagh, a "ThUd ToNkEr 'EaD" Whaagh to be precise. He's sick and tired of his mate Gazgal getting his arse kicked by the Chaos, and Salamader scum (Mixed feelings as they are my scum….) So “ThUd” has decided he could take them on, and show up the legend that is “Gaz” (That’s what ThUd calls him, as he has a soft spot for him, back of the head where the neck meets the skull, where do you think “ThUd’s “ name came from….) He has started small, recruiting 5 ‘nobs to his cause (He has dirt on all of them, so it was this or their secrets come out)

Group Photo No1 (Start of whaagh “ThUd)


Warboss ThUd ToNkEr ‘EaD


‘nob 1 (ThUd’s dirt = like dressing as an Eldar at the weekend)


‘nob 2 (ThUd’s dirt = Likes Meg Ryan movies)


‘nob 3 (ThUd’s dirt = On his stag night, his stripper was a bloke, and strangely like it)


‘nob 4 (ThUd’s dirt = Questions why all the violence…..You’re an ork deal with it)


‘nob 5 (ThUd’s dirt = No dirt, ThUd’s wifes son from first marriage, well he is family)


All the nobs will get names, but first ThUd want to see them fight, so the name suits their fighting style….They have recruted, (press ganged) 20 more slugger boys to their cause, these should all things being fair arrive shortly, when they do they will be kitted out in the correct atire that suits ThUd’s whaagh.

Paints used (If your interested?)

The ork skin is really easy, in-fact a little to easy to believe

*Chaos black base coat (Primer)

*Coat of Gretchen green (Foundation green) I like to make sure this is a good cover with none of the primer showing through.

*Then a devlan mud wash, dont need to be to liberal with this just a good coat so the recesses become darker, a few blotches here and there that are darker help to make it seem more organic.

*Then thraka green wash, don't need to go crazy here, but make sure you get all the skin covered

*Then do another thraka green wash, this coat makes the orks really green.

The green is not quiet so bright in the flesh, my camera's flash distorts it really.

I tried loads of different colour before settling for this colour, from layering to blending, to washes, and this was the least time consuming, and gave a good look, and as now am doing 20 boyz at once, I'm glad of this fact

Well its been a month and 1 day, since ThUd ToNkEr 'EaD, stuck his middle finger up at Gazza (Remember ThUdS pet name for him) and started his own waaagh (Now writing it correctly) His Waaagh is gaining momentum, he has his 20 new slugga' boyz kitted out in his colours, (reds easy, squish grot until he leaks, alot, grind in, hard, leave to soak in, dry, then hay presto, one red top, one disgruntled employee) Another 40 (Yes 40) Slugga' boys want a piece of ThUd'S waaagh (Gazza, the "proffett of the waaagh" my arse!!!)

New group photo


Boyz together


Boyz 1


Boyz 2


Boyz 3


Boyz 4


Boyz 5


After the next forty get there colours (Doing them in batches of 5 next time, can't stay motivated for 20 at a time) I've been thinking of how to tell the separate mobs apart,, i thought do different pants colours, but dismissed that one, as I want there to be a flow to the army, so when you see them you can't tell where one mob starts, and another finishes. But I need to know whats going on? So I'm going to go along the line of their bases, I have loads of brown (Scorched, bestel, catchan, etc etc) paints, so what I plan on doing is painting the rims different brown, easy, and quick.
Also I want to paint a whole mob 30 boyz, then 3 rokkets, and 3 big shoota's, then the nob (with magnets so can get all the options) so as thats a mob done, with all options, move on. I don't mine proxying but, with marines its easy, orks, to many options (and bodies!!?!?)

Watch this space, 5 coming sooner than a month I hope.....

Cool stuff.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has to break mobs down in to smaller groups to keep painting. :)

The lighting has yellowed the last lot a bit but they look great, keep up the momentum.

They are looking good.
I have been doing the same idea with bases on my Gaunts. Different bases for different squads. Of course it started by luck as they came off ebay looking different! :biggrin:

Yeah, your right about the yellowing, need to make a box for taking the pic's in, and get some better lamps! (damn energy saving bulbs....) Plan for bulk mob painting is now (40 this batch), get non slotter bases done :eek:k:, stick pennies in bottom of bases done:eek:k: , clip out all models including the slotter bits done :eek:k:, de-mold line them all (Bodies done:eek:k: , arms done:eek:k: , heads done:eek:k: ), drill barrels done:eek:k:, stick to bases done :eek:k: , slate and sand bases done:eek:k:, primer all done:eek:k:, then, paint base colours in batches of five as that bit took the most time as you can't really see any end results, soon as the mud hits (devlan mud that is) they seem to be nearly there, only highlights, and detail. Hope to do 40??!!?! this month (double last month) but lets see shall we, don't want to get to ahead of myself, who am i kidding......

Why, oh why, oh why, did I choose an ork horde army....Well just a quick update, have now done
1x Thud tonka ead
5x Nob mates
60 ork boyz (Slugga ones)
Doing
1x Big mek with KFF
To start
1x Snikrot
1x metal nob from gorka a morka (The one from the ork codex, under snakebite klan, armed with 2 axes, probably never use him, but was cheap)
5x metal kommandos
40x boyz (slugga ones again...)

Will hopefully post up pics on the boyz and mek next week, taken an age to do due to life getting in the way. Thank goodness this is my second army (other one is salamanders) so atleast have something to play with

I do so to, blocks of 10 is about all I can manage.

I like the leather on the legs, how easy is it as its the one thing I find hard to get right is light leather.
