Been on a long long hiatus of pretty much no 40k. But I'm returning, slowly, and thus opening another WIPlog to help motivate me, and document what progress I make. My army is almost entierly deffskulls, with a few Bad Moonz nobs and Evil Sunz Stormboyz that I may get around to repainting in proppa colours eventually.
Talking of painting it will be immediately obvious I like my orks dark and 'gritty'. Sometimes I err on the side of too dark, I'm still experimenting and finding a balance. I also want to start using rust as well as washes to achieve the Battle worn look I'm after. I've very few models that are finished, but many many more on the workbench.
What I do have finished I've got a few shots of. Just as I'm still working on my painting style, I'm still trying to figure out the best camera settings (focus is alright but I'm still trying to find a mode that gives true to life colours) Without further waffle, the finished stuff:
Full album that will continue to be updated, with extra angles too (feel free to ask if you want a better angle on something!), is here: http://imgur.com/a/2FA2w
And now for the WIP stuff:
I'm repainting a (really awesome) looted chimera I aquired from somewhere. It's my test model for some new weathering techniques too.
At the same time, I'm putting the finishing touches on a looted Rhino, that I call the 'Stug Asauf Ork'
I'm thinking I need to add some curved armour plates to the barrel, and maybe build up a bit more of a gun housing too.
Then there's a vanilla battlewagon in for repairs and repaints, and a heavily WIP Looted Russ with Baneblade tracks.
As always, C&C appreciated. I'll try and keep this thread semi-regularly updated, but no promises.
