The boyz were my first army so they are anything but organized. They are also painted cartoonie. After years of trying to win or at least do very well in painting at tournaments I've decided I have to lower my standards in order to play more. With all the hype over the new codex I started schemeing on what it would take to make my army legal. I have a lot of stuff. Enough to fill up an entire force org chart without buying much new stuff.
I bought the Assault on Black Reach boxed set and am of course doing a Nob over a terminator, I'm trading the loyalists away for more boys. I played Gorka Morka and painted two gangs in one weekend to demo the game at a tournaments, so some of my old RT orks escaped from their blisters or their foam cacoons and had some fun in the dessert, now I'm trying to take all my ork stuff and get it legal and on the table. This project will start in earnest next year maybe, but I've given it a lot of though, even ordered some Forgeworld bitz.
You can see my first ever orks, the metal ones that now are about the size of a grot as well as other stuff I've painted over the last ten years in this gallery.
I gotta go double check I can paint inprogress photos of my Black Reach Nob.

I'm not done with the skin, but clearly wash over Goblin Green or perhaps the new Foundation medium green is the new Ork skin standard...

The first picture is after three more coats of green or there abouts.
I took these pictures late at night so the lighting is overly harsh, I was no longer improving things with my washes, glazes, highlights, and lowlights... This will have to do for the most part.
Here is a slight closeup of the face and part of the arms where you can see the strirations and hopefully the gradient that built up over time...
No painting will be done this weekend as I'm going to Seattle, but next week I must finish everything else...

The pants are a dirty red, which uses a variety of colors and may receive another wash and highlight, I wanna avoid going up to orange. I'll see how it looks in the morning under the sunlight.
Here is the latest picture of the Nob.
Next up are some brown and black bits, plus some simple metallics. Then some more detail work to make it cool. I should get it done this week, but my CFA and Hockey Pool will suffer...

The whole model will get some rust, grit, dirt and blood, but for now it is relatively clean. I use a lot of washes sometimes and let the black basecoat peak out too.
Here are two pics, again taken with crappy lighting late at night before going to bed. I'll have it finished this weekend and entered. Then maybe I'll post some pics of the old orks, that will be touched up, repurposed, and in some rare cases stripped. I got plenty of unpainted models and largescale stripping isn't good when you could be painting virgin models. Some OOP models are rare but especially with a horde army just paint more rank n' file rather than strip the old boyz...

The hair is completely undone and I may do some highlights on the trowsers or whatever, but I started the flames and I did the base early so as to keep his boots clean until I add my final coat of rust, blood, and gore.
Here are two bigger clicks not taken with Microfocus, but with a flash and with actual daylight coming in through my windows...

I might add another layer of highlights to the pants of the hair, but I kinda like it dark. I gotta decide before I do any weathering, but I think I can improve the rust, so that is next.

Please also refrain from putting your painting business/watermark logos on the picture as well as we would like to keep this as anonymous as possible (just like in all the past contests).
6. There is no WIP shot for this contest so you can enter the minis if you've painted them already. However please do not enter said minis if you have already entered them in other contests as we will disqualify you for that.
The voting will be done by the B&C guys and I never put watermarks on any of my stuff. I'm just a guy, not a mercanery painter. Besides I think it helps stay motivated having a date and an inprogress thread.
The rest of my army will not look this good. It was painted over 10 years ago and I'm going to try to expediately get it playable. I don't want to strip and repaint dozens of models, it just isn't worth it. I just want it to be playable and I can improve it a little hear and there...
