I've actually gotten around making a base for the second trukk and while I was doing that I started to think that my first trukk was a little bit plain so I thought of way to make it look nicer. After some thinking I decided in favour of a roof with some symbol on... not totally sure about it so what do you guys say? Is it better or worse than before?


My greatest problem when it comes to modelling and painting is that I hardly ever find anything fully completed, the latest victim to that cause is my stompa which recieved a brand new base:


Time to look for some more left over orks, laters! cheers.gif

I like the roof - it gives you another chance to show off your excellent freehand skills.

Nice bases too. thumbs.gif

Great job on all of these. I wish you'd painted the rivets on the Stompa and done a little bit of weathering. Still stunning paintjob on everything though.

Hmm, wouldn't it be more realistic that the orks first built the stompa and then gave it a nice tick coat of red paint? In that case the rivets would be red as well winkingOrk.gif Furthermore it might sound quite iffy but I don't really like weathering. However the orks are by far the funniest looking race in 40k so you'll have to live with some very clean greenskins.

The main reason behind to roof was to actually get a big nice area for some free hand and as I'm getting back into the painting mood it might be time for something more complicated than these mono colour symbols smilingOrk.gif

After some skiing I'm back to torture my little plastic dudes with green paint. smilingOrk.gif

During my last scavenge mission I managed to find some deff koptas... unfortunatly only 3 of them as it seems I've already used up quite a few as I believe I had 9 once upon a time. The deff kopta itself is a really pretty model, however when you have 3 of them you start to realize how monotonous they look. Although this can easily been solved by some modification.
What do you guys think? Do they look at least a little bit different?


And now I'm off to look for some more models. cheers.gif

Love the twin rotors on the Deffkopta. Stunning paint jobs and cracking conversions throughout the army. And such a fast painter...I guess that comes of painting everything red... biggrin2.gif

Yes, the modifications you've made look great, especially the twin rotor. thumbs.gif

I hope you've got red skis too. biggrin2.gif

Exactly! With some imagination, time and spare parts one can do really customize the coptas so that not a single one looks alike smilingOrk.gif

As I've never seen the storm boyz sprues I can't say much about it more than it might be worth it to pick up a box or 2.

Wow! Your freehand markings are top notch!
I agree the twin rotor copta looks awesome.
I'd love to see some more variation on the bases though. Perhaps some rocks picked out in a slightly different color? I realize everything's supposed to be covered with slushy mud, but any sort of variation in the browns would add a lot I think.

Guess who's back! I've actually had these boyz painted up for quite some time now, however as I ran out of purity seal it took a little while extra to get a new can. I hope you like them!


I also found an old AoBR boss that looked quite sad and lonely so i decided in favour of giving him some new gear. The thing with this model is that the original pose is nice, it's just that his chosen wargear makes it a little bit stiff.
The only problem now is that I don't know how I'm supposed to paint the sword and shield so if anyone got some suggestions/thought I'd more than happy! cheers.gif

Sword and shield? You already know the trick of red plus a silver edge, but look at this guy's bosspole...
Attached Image
:

Favorite color, edges in chainmail silver... dab a little random drybrush and it looks good. I especially love doing this on axes as red+silver does a neat 'fireman's axe' effect. Also I love a wash of devlan mud or gryphonne sepia to make things look a bit more dirty/rusty.

Do you use washes at all on your models? The colors look so crisp I'm wondering if it's the photography, the brighter-than-usual color mix you use... so I can't tell. pphhtork.gif


Alternative idea: Make the shield a rusted-up piece of scrap bolted together. The best recipe for 'rust' I found boiled down to this: Pick a shade of orange and your 2-3 favorite shades of brown or reddish brown. Dab one color all over the rusty place, then another color, then another, go back to first color, pick another color at random... So dab dab dab fair randomly till you got a spattering of all the orange-to-browns all over the place, makes a great rusty mess. Aaand finish with a touch of boltgun metal on spots that were rubbed shiny anew.

hmm, if the choppa's rusty, you can give tetanos to your foes, haha.

It was nice to get some feedback spacecat, however it wasn't really what I was looking for (dumb me not specifying). The thing I like most when it comes to painting is free hand motifs, patterns and other goofy effects. But fear not fellows I came up with something! ideaork.gif

Regarding the colors they actually are quite crisp and somewhat brighter than usually on orks. I'm not really a big fan of washes myself but I use a little bit of gryphonne sepia to tone down the yellow before I highlight it and some on the pants.

About the boss then: to start of and get in the mood I started of with some checkers. Easy peasy you might say but I like how the red and yellow pattern looks.

Then I thought long and hard (hehe bad pun is bad) about what I could do with the sword and ended up with some purple thing. It may not show but there is alot of layers here, going from liche purple to pure white.

Next on the line was the inside of the shield... originally I thought I could get away by just painting it in boltgun metal and then light tint it with black. However it went a little bit further, I even dropped my standard brush in favour of a smaller one. winkingOrk.gif

So I guess that's the end of my attemt att pimping the AoBR boss... the third one to be more precise.

Next up will be the buggy project... and believe me, I've found some truly interesting bits... Mwhahahahaaaa cheers.gif

Hmm, I guess that I'm the only one who likes my warboss. Lets hope that my buggy will be more appreciated biggrin2.gif
For the time being it only needs some varnish and then it's all finished.

The question then should something in line with: what am I going to do now? ..and the answer is as follows:


I got it earlier this week and took some pictures so you could get a picture of what it looks like before i set my diabolic plan in motion. I also picked up some turrets for it and I must say, I'm impressed by the amounth of detail on these:

That warboss is amazing. I have been looking at it for an hour lol... Makes me want to try some more free hand stuff. I like the crisp look to everything, looks like your orks are proud and rich.

I wouldn't take the lack of replies to be any form of criticism, your work is great, your conversions are very cool and I like the style of paint. The Warboss is awesome too smilingOrk.gif

Thanks for sharing the pics of your army, honestly seeing peoples armies is half the reason i'm on this forum. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the kind words smilingOrk.gif However as I always want to improve my painting skills some feedback and ideas do good!

To be honest Nork, seeing all these nice armies online is what keeps my little ork gang going. Coherency is truly beautiful biggrin2.gif
