|I just had to add a modern oversized Space Ork shoota to this model. In case of Orks bigger is better.|
Now the other two should've been long finished by now, but I got distracted playing Rimworld on my PC. An addiction to computer gaming tends to sneak up on me and suck a lot of time that could've been spend painting. On the other hand, what a game :). Back to the main subject. I tried something new for Ork/Orc/Orruk skin. I followed this tutorial on The Lost and the Very Damned blog. I swapped Graveyard Earth with Baneblade Brown, used Nurgling Green instead of Rotting Flesh and took my Army Painter Green Tone to replace Green Ink. All swaps aside, its an amazing skin color, more so because it starts out as a dull brown and ends up looking seriously green.
|Nihilakh Green is one of the great GW innovations of the past decade, but you have to remember thinning it down before use to get a reasonably subtle effect like on this orks shoulders and weapon.|
|Paiting basic checks is not quite as hard as it looks like, just start on non-folded clothing like a sleeve.|
|For those of you wondering (and actually reading these captions) I scratch built the wall this Ork is standing on as part of an Ork fortification. I wrote a (rather lousy) forum post on this terrain and archived it here on my blog.|
