Hi all, my name's Rob, first post on the forum here.

I recently bought the Stormclaw boxset and it's rekindled my love of the Orky side. I dug out the old ork models I had from about 14 years ago now and plan on gving them a new lick of paint that's sure to be a vast improvement over the originals! 

 

I love me some good old fashioned GrimDark 40K, so I've gone for a 'realistic' no nonsense approach.

 

With that theme in mind I had to choose Goff's!

I've also tried something new for me on the base, eschewing the normal sand and modelling grass effort. I've used plasitcard and fine mesh to create an industrial type look.

That Goff Warboss looks "dead 'ard and propa" if you ask me.

 

Love the skin tone and the details. From what I can see, the base looks great as well. You should be proud. Can't wait to see more...

Nice work! I especially like the way the metal looks. How are you painting it?

Cheers, as simply as can be for the most part, boltgun metal and washes, with minimal highlights. I'm putting it on quite thickly with these, and the pooling seems to be creating a tarnished dirty sort of look and gives the edges a natural sort of highlight, without it looking too clean and Un-orky which painted edge highlights might

Looks really good. A little suggestion would be too paint the wrist wraps red or white to contrast his darker skin. It also looks cool when you paint rivets copper against the black background.

Small update here. Not had a lot of chance to get stuck into painting the Boyz up, but the codex arrived this morning. Things are quite different from 3rd edition! I've made some changes to the Warboss's base to jazz it up a bit, and sorted out one of my old Boyz that had an unfortunately thick coat of paint. Its left him looking like me's missing an eye in one of the sockets, but I think it looks quite effective!

That really is a superb skin tone you've got on them, an army full of them is going to look immense  :thumbs

I like the reds. Really offsets the black and reminds me of the 2nd ed goffs and their red spot details, but without the over-the-top, hurts-your-eyes-to-look-at brightness of those days. Overall a great effort.

Simple, effective. Still not looking sloppy or hasted. I like it!

I really dig this style.  It's what I go for on mine.  Realistic and gritty while clean.

Always a fan of warbosses with a big choppa instead of a claw.

@ Mek Kargob, why do you favour the BC?  Challenges?
