So here's the first couple of models from my Deffskullz army.
The thought behind it is dark, gritty, dirty, rusty...you get the point...but mainly wanna keep it at standard tabletop quality, nothing fancy, it just has to look good on the table and hopefully end up as a massive Waaagh! in the future.

I'm sorry for the picture quality, only have my smartphone and poor lighting to work with at the moment.

Enjoy and please share any comments you might have.

Good question, not quite sure yet though I do know he'll be alot bigger, proberbly based off of the daemon prince kit with lots of bioniks, two "killsaw" type weapons and a grot firing a twin-linked shoota from his back along with alot of pipes and cogs and the like.
Sort of a "he's more machine than ork" type deal...a warboss version of Grotsnik I guess you could call it.

Another mob completed, this time around it's 15 Sluggas.

I really hope I can afford a better camera and picture taking setup in the near future as these pictures dosn't show off the paintjobs in the best way, but they will have to do for now.

that's a tight deffskullz paint scheme, the nobz look fierce. I think although you said you didn't want anything fancy a few simple looted weapons, scraps of armour and similar conversions would definitely have given them an enhanced deffskullz theme though in my honest opinion


be the change you want to see in the world

A really nicely painted force. Love the skin tones. They have a real dirty, gritty feel which I LOVE.

 

That Deffskull Blue hurts this old Goff Warboss' eyes :P , but all-in-all a fantastic force.

Mugruk: Thanks...I did consider Goffs at one point, but blue is one of my favorite colours ^^

Phatty: I see what you mean and that stuff will be added at some point, at the moment I just wanted to paint some stuff and not worry about conversions though ^^

Sweet paint job, but the base in particular works great.  I like the turfy of grass look and you did it well.

Finally an update, I sadly had some months where I was "out of comission" due to a back injury but back in the game now and just finished up another mob:

Deff Orks uv Kreeg:

IMG_0205_zps62ef7ff8.jpg

 

Which brings the army up to around 500pts painted...next step, 1000pts.

I'll proberbly be changing the bases though, they're a little too boring to me and wanna do some muddy, "battlefield" bases with some water effects and "splattering" on vehicles, just gotta find a way that works for me.

Love the beat up and battered look of them  :thumbs wouldn't go too mad on the bases though - seen too many fancy ones that make it look as though rather than moving, the figures just hitching a lift on a bit of scenery that's drifting along in the desired direction  :search

First trukk finished.

Not 100% happy with it as it stands now, think I could have done better just not sure how exactly...will be adding some mud to the lower part of it at a later date.

Neat and tidy paint job on a good kit

 

........ think I could have done better just not sure how exactly...

 

 

 

Metals could perhaps do with mixing up a bit - steel's always going to be used a lot but some bits will be less rusty than others and there's also usually brass, copper and ally bits on engines and running gear, gun could have had a few details picked out too but it's definitely 'Tabletop+'  :thumbs

Some details are lost in the pic I should mention, I'm well aware the quality of the picture isn't too good, taken with a smartphone in poor lighting.
Will go back and redo all the pics once I get a better setup.

Trukk number 2 finished!
Nothing special, just a trukk ^^ but I'm really enjoying painting these and tried something new with the skin...making the process simpler, faster and to me, looks better, dunno how great you can see it with the rather poor picture quality though.
