Have so many models to do I"m hoping this will help me keep motivated. :)

Not the greatest painter in the world. Still learning but... :)

Last night based the orcs in the pic that I have been working on and finished blocking out the colors on the Reaver.

Well fit the orks sealed and the reaver nearly done. Hope to have it completed later today. Anyone have any pointers in realistic wood?

Will Put up picks later.

painting the grain lines would make it realistic, but a pain in the butt...

Not sure what color to use as a base yet though thinking a light brown sorta a natural oak look.

Welcome to #thedailypaint!

Ocean has it right, to make it believable paint the wood grain. Which is annoyyyyying!

Any brown on the lighter side will do. A more neutral tone like you said.

Is there any texture sculpted into the wood. If so I will usually base a very light brown almost tan. Wash it dark brown and then drybrush the light brown again.

If there is no texture how about painting it like bone instead?
