Hello Green friends!

 

With the new 40k edition i've started to feel the need to make something to honour my greenskin spirit! But unfortunately the will to make another ork warband is not great; ive painted too much ork boyz, i know they are never enough but im also a painter slow as hell so i must abdicate!

OT and i have little dream of new orks boyz kit sooner or later, the current are always cool but they have almost my age  :biggrin , i would really appreciate some new boyz!! /OT 

 

Oook so thinking of what to do came up in my mind gorkamorka! And from gorkamorka-----> digganob!

 

I love to convert models and with all the range of these days there are a lot of miniatures adaptable for being diggas!

 

I dont know how much time and how many models i will do, but i can ensure you that this is one of the most important project (talking about feelings  :blush ) i have ever started and i will always try to continue it!

 

Stop talking i show you the first models, 3 digganob, from left to right: Grummok, Sharko Boy, Psycho Kane

These are so much better than the actual digga miniatures. Keep that skin tone, it's great.

Yeah, the skin does look a bit 'zombie' for my liking ('though others may have differing opinions - Garslags' reply snuck in as I was typing :lol ) so I'd probs give it a couple of brown washes to darken/break it up a bit.

Bloo washes on the skin would be a DeffSkulz thing - I paint all my DeffSkulz nobz, boyz and grots with bloo warpaint stripes on their skin and faces for luck, before I saw that you'd painted the diggas face and hands green (which never occurred to me) I'd thought that the easiest way to make them obviously not Imperial would be to give them bloo warpaint for luck, either stripes or covered completely but worn off in places - hence the wash suggestion.

A bit moot really 'coz the way you've chosen to go works for all the other klanz as well :cheers

 

Edit - looking at the pic again the figure does look very 'klan neutral', I'd definitely put a bit of klan specific colour on them somewhere (but maybe that's just me :? )

Some update! I've painted some of the guyz! I've make different skin tones try, a bit less pale, some more some less, i don't follow one single recipe exactly so they can differ a bit! 

 

Anyway here the diggaz:

Oh, I missed this. May I say, that guy on the bottom right has the creepiest face I've ever seen in 28mm. And the Nob looks directly out of the digganob book art.

But mostly, that guy on the bottom right. I'm pretty sure he should be on some register or watch list or something. Love it.

Genius! As luck would have it we're starting to play using the Shadow Wars rules and these figures are ideal. Kudos!

These guys look great. some really well done paint jobs :) Nice work!

I always find that slightly changing your recipe for each model is a good move, always ends up with a more realistic result. :)
