Qwasiman' #theweeklypaint 2015 3 gretchins done!

Post by qwasiman » Mon Jan 05, 2015 7:55 pm

Hello my dear Muppets!
Finally managed to decide on a color scheme for my orks. And better up, I´ve even finished a legal unit (woho!). I´ve batch painted the whole bunch. All I can say is that 11 miniatures, was a bit much to do at the same time.

All tough, overall i´m quite pleased with them!

Oh by the way, Vallejo Cavalry brown is my new favorite color. <3

next up, a truck and some killa kanz!

Cheers m8, i appreciate it a lot!

Its actually quite simple:

1. Add a Layer of warboss green over a black undercoat that has been drybrushed with a light brown (the brown helps with the coverage, in this case, i used ochre brown from vallejo, but you could also use zandri dust)

2. Next, wash the skin with Biel-tan Green.

3. Apply warboss green to the raised areas, leaving the wash in the recesses.

4. Apply skarsnik green to the raised parts , leaving some of the previous warboss green showing. (This isn´t really a highlight, more like a layer, but leaving some of the previous color showing.)

5. glaze the skin with waywatcher green, this really helps to blend the layers togheter and adds a great finish.

6. (Optional) glaze with bloodletter on the bottom lip.

This method is actually very quick for painting ork boys fast, because you only need one layer of each step to get a good coverage.

I also spray my models with Purity Seal Satin Spray for two reasons:

1. It protect the models.

2. It adds harmony to the model by "binding" all the colours togheter with the same finish.

Looking good, I'd like to see some more blocking out with black to break up the yellow on the Kan. But it's wip :)

Acutally, i also stuggled with blood before, both with getting a good color and how to apply it. For the blood on the saw, i did use GW "Blood for the blood god". It gives a nice finish of fresh blood. If you want the effect of dried blood, you can actually mix it with some typhoon corrosion and then use matt varnish over it. The typhoon corrosion adds a little bit of brown color and adds texture (Always lovely to have some unknown gritty bits from some unfortunate victim!)

When it comes to applying it, its quite simple. Take an old brush, and cut of the bristles, so you get half of the length left. Congratulation, You just made a a stippling brush! Now you just add some paint to it, and dab it on to the area, and do some light circular motions here and there. Furthermore if you really want to go for a gory look, you can also add blood splatter to the the rest of the model. For this, you simply load the brush with paint again, and the use a flicking motion with your thumb towards you model.

You just have to use coomon sense and some imagination when you apply it. For example, what would happen if a 9 feet tall orc, wearing a huge axe, would smash it into a space marines chest/face? Well, it wouldn´t be pretty i tell ya! :lol:
