These models are allready created and pretty much ready to begin playing with. However they are fullfilling satisfactory standards IMO!
First out is my Doomsday pattern Battlewagon:
Battlewagon w/ 3 TL-BS, 5 BoBS, Armor plates, Grot riggers @ 182
Off course, looted model design from Kronork. However the painting is very sloppy done. I practicly just painted it up as fast as I could as I wanted to complete it. However it is painted just like my other vehicles was with drybrushed Boltgun metal applied to it, and some white paintwork where I seemed fit. The Pink skinz don't really utilse paint that much and so their vehicles are bare metallic. I belive this model has a much bigger potential then it is actually showing.
The model itself is very stunning, but the painting isn't.
I don't really know how to create a good looking orky worn metal appearence. And I have also decided to make my Orkz more Orky. As it is now they are kinda ordered. I think I want to add some more sloppiness to the lines.
I have planned some improvements on the model itself. Mainly replacing the ammo belts with free hanging belts. More cables from the coockpit and servos making it look more orky. I think I also need more Ork glyph markings and more rivets.
I will also add a bunch of Grot riggers reparing it. The driver looks somewhat off from cutting of his legs and repositioning them, I need to fill the caviteas better with greenstuff then what it currently is.
So how do one create an Orky metal look?
You think it will look ok with the proposed upgrades to the model?
Is there anything else I shall be doing with it?
Next is my lovly Stormboyz:
(7 Stormboyz incl. Nob w/ PK) @ 141
the models are a big reason why I have the stormboyz in my list, many people argue that they are very inneficient in the size I have made them. But I usually don't loose them to weaponsfire and the Nob is very nice killing big things in the way. What I need to do these guys is filling some caviteas that they have due to positioning their bodies and legs in a way they wasn't intended to be glued together.
I have previosly painted the orkz nails and teef just plain white. However that doesn't cut it any longer, I want them to be more dirty. adding brown to the base of the teeth and the yellowish white(Can't remember name) in the middle section and then having white tips only. You think that would make a good look?
Again I have the problem with the metal. What shall I do to the metal?
I also think I'm going to add some smoke and flames comming out of the rokkits to make them look more rokkit like!
The ork skin on the battlefield makes my orkz quite dark. If it wasn't for their light pink being used for their cloth. The models would be way to dark. I think I want to enhance the skin painting to all my orkz by layering lighter and ligher skin tones. My last Warboss
I created used this method and it looks just right out wonderfull on the table. Sadly I created it before it was stated that KMB on Mega armor makes it Assault 1. So I'll create another Warboss. That would be the 3rd in iteration all made because of changing Wargear.
Any Comment is more then appreciated
I realize this thread will not update for a few month waiting for me to come back to Sweden. But I felt a need to post it. Specially as I promised a fellow ork player some shots of my "Doktor strange love pattern Stormboyz"
