Made quite a bit of progress on these lovely models… Well after doing the metal parts I have spent a bit of time on my Forgeworld Ork Bommerz.
The first thing I did was to do the bases, which starts of as a simple flying base, I stuck a small rock and GW’s sand mix, before painting Bestial Brown and drybrushing with Bleached Bone.
I wanted to go for the orange/brown look of the FW 40K model.
Though I don’t think I will go for the checks or the flame effects which I think wouldn’t work in this scale (painted by me they wouldn’t).
I first painted the underneath in Vomit Brown.
This meant that I could avoid getting paint on the black metal work.
After painting the complete model in Vomit Brown, I painted the bomb loads in Bestial Brown after thinking that black would be too harsh. I then gave the model a wash. In the following picture the washed model is still wet!
Once the model was completely painted in Vomit Brown I then washed the model with a wash of Chestnut Ink, Scorched Brown and water.
As you can see one model is darker than the other, but I don’t think Orks are that uniform.
I still need to do add some more detailing.
The detail on these models is amazing.
