skin is done on 100% of the orks and 1/3 of them have black pants. tomorrow I work again, so I'll try and get more of the black done before I go in. All of it would be nice.

The guy that has the battletech gave me another group of minis. But at least I can sit on those for a while and have some fun with the orks.

Total for this month? 86. And packing to move. Oi!

Thanks Blue! I never painted an Ork before so I was pretty excited. I am shaking my fist at the arms being in the way of EVERYTHING though.

Today's goal? Get the black done on all 30. Well, at least the basecoat and wash. I don't think I'll get the highlights done before work

Yea, I think I need to open a Cafepress for Epic Duck Studios. "You'd be easier to paint if your arms came off" needs to be on a lot of things - along with "Great Artists don't paint because they're inspired; they're inspired because they paint" and "Wargamers do it on Tables"

That Ork looks fantastic Andi, looking forward to group photos :D

YES do it. I love all of those sayings. Wargamers do it on Tables teehee. I am hoping to have the group done by thursday. That is the ultimate goal for the orks. Then I will focus back on battletech and the other minis he gave me

Finally a day off! I have to take the dogs to the vet for their annual blood work and then I might go shopping for skirts and sandals. And then? PAINTING DA ORKZ

So fat they have the metal done, black done and skin done. I'm going to wait to do skin touch ups until all the brown is done. then washes on everything and highlights and base

I will admit, a grinned like a nut when I read painting orkz after shopping for skirts and sandals. Who says mini painters can't be girlie.

I'm getting in touch with my girly side :P I'm usually all jock with sweats and tank tops and running shoes. But my inner hippie is coming out a lot more lately and I want some boho skirts and beaded sandals hehe. I figure layered tanks would look cute with the skirts. I should look for belts too...

I am also changing my goal: I want to get 1/3 of the orks finished today. I need a break from straight basecoating.

After getting all of the orks pretty much done, my Gordon decided he wanted cleaner brighter yellows. Before and after. I made the shadows much more subtle than they are in the pic. so don't look at that :P
