Yet another project I kinda stumbled into: It’s Thrugg Bullneck’s Space Ork Raiders.
I was happily working on proper projects, glazing the thighs of 25mm horses as a righteous man should. At some point I had to wait for the stuff to dry, my eyes wandered across the table, on which I had these Orky chaps standing around due to me rearranging the lead mountain. So I started painting the Ork skin, just in between drying times on stuff I actually have to paint.
And between other drying times, I did some more painting. Not entirely sure about the blue, maybe I’ll have to tone it down a little. Let’s see how it works along with the browns maybe after a wash and some more highlights.
I got the box back when I collected Orky stuff from ebay roughly 12 years ago. For a few years now my gaming buddy and I have vague plans of refighting the Battle at the Farm from the Rogue Trader rulebook.
Thanks very much, Paintingnoob!
I used a variant of the approach I've always taken really (as those are meant to kinda fit with my Orks army). A tutorial on this you can see here: http://taleofpainters.blogspot.co.at/2012/01/tutorial-orkorc-skin.html
Nice! THAT brings back memories…Orks were my first 40K army and I had a couple of those kits back in the mid-to-late 90's. Great times, indeed. 🙂 Thanks for sharing! They are looking very cool.
Cheers, Dave! Hope to get them finished some time soon. 😀 Or at least get some more WIPs up.
