Hey guys, after a couple of weeks of new Ork releases, is anyone tempted to start painting some ladz? On Tale of Painters we have gathered quite a few resources over the time to give you the right tools at hand so that your next Waaagh doesn’t ebb away on your paint station. Check out our collection of Ork (or Orc) related tutorials after the jump.
In this tutorial, Garfy is showing you how to paint a complete Ork Warrior from start to finish. Don’t mind this is an old 2nd Edition starter box model, Garfy uses a paint scheme of today.
Ork (or Orc) models tend to show a lot of bare skin, as any true Ork loves to go to war with nothing more on his body than his vest. Getting Ork skin right is essential for a striking paint job. In this tutorial, Garfy shows you his technique for painting green skin with Vallejo Game Colour paints.
Another technique for painting green skin with Citadel paints can be found in this tutorial by Xoxtile, who is sharing the recipe he used on his Night Goblin army.
Last but not least, Sigur developed another technique for painting Ork (or Orc) skin, check out his tutorial.
Orks treat their armour and wargear pretty carelessly, unless they are fancy Flash Gitz (or Grots). This tutorial will show you how to add a very rusty metal effect to your boyz and trukks.
More techniques for adding wear and tear to your models can be found in this video tutorial by ThirdEyeNuke.
Another tutorial for adding weathering effect to vehicles, demonstrated on a Land Raider but useful for any kind of vehicle, be it Deff Dreads, Battlewagons or Stompas.
A handy tutorial for creating Ork glyphs from plasticard, useful for custom boss poles or vehicle adornments.(but don’t adorn them too much, or are you a wimpy Bad Moon?)
Orks love to smash things up, don’t they? In this tutorial you’ll learn how to get your choppas bloody.
An old Ork saying goes “Da red wunz go fasta!”. Can’t argue with that can you? This tutorial explains three ways to paint red.
