It’s that time again folks, and this week I’ll be sharing my completed Ironskull’s Boyz with you all…
Firstly I will accept the shame bells toll after missing my first post (and will attempt to appease Stahly ;). Hopefully sharing some complete boyz with you all will help.
After repeatedly being stomped by Garfy’s Ladz I decided to finally get paint to plastic and bring some Orky goodness of my own to the table. I really love these sculpts and they were a nice distraction between other Ork based projects. What I didn’t enjoy was the colours I chose, both Garfy and Spaceshrimp can once again attest to the fact I hate painting white and yellow. I did, however, paint them yellow… because I never learn.
I think by the end of this I had applied so many coats of yellow and so many touch-ups that I started to lose my love for them. I couldn’t achieve the look that I wanted and as always the more you look at your painting the worse it will seem. Taking a step back helped and achieving what I’d class as tabletop standard. As I keep saying, as long as we learn something nothing is ever a waste of time or pointless, and I certainly learned something painting these brutes. Avoid yellow.
Can’t wait to see what you all bring to the table.
