Working more on the Grot Krew

Across my Ork Big Gunz, heavy vehicles, even my Stompa, I have a variety of Grot Krew that need painting. This post shows where I had got so far with them.

The next stage was finishing off the detailing and clothing on the models.

These Grot Krew are from the Forge World Big Zzappa, though there is a Stompa Krew Grot in the first photograph.

I painted the nails and claws of the Grots with Ushabti Bone and then highlighted with Wraithbone. I painted the trousers of one of the Grots with Ushabti Bone and the other with XV-88.

These are from the Stompa kit and the Skorcha.

I did some more with the Grots. In the main I painted some clothing using various shades of khaki and brown. I highlighted the screwdriver with Stormhost Silver. I washed the pistols with Nuln Oil.

I an pretty happy with the Grot with the Wrench from the Skorcha kit. Not sure what I am going to do with the eyes, probably black and then a spot of red.

I used various greys to paint the bandana of the screwdriver yielding Grot.

These Grots are from the Kill Kannon.

For the Kill Kannon observer, I painted a lens effect on the observing tool. I painted the entire lens with Thunderhawk Blue and then used Lothern Blue for the reflection before finally adding a drop of white at the top. On the other side of the device I used a drop of Mephiston Red.

For the loader, the one with the helmet, I painted his jacket with XV-88 and then highlighted with a mix of XV-88 and Ushabti Bone.

I have a fair few other Grot Krew I need to clean, base and paint.

These are the Krew from the Supa Kannon and their ammo crate.

Once I cleaned up the models I glued them temporarily to bases and then gave them a white undercoat of Corax White.

Grot Krew

Across my Ork Big Gunz, heavy vehicles, even my Stompa, I have a variety of Grot Krew that need painting.

This is a Grot Gunner from the Forge World Kill Kannon.

This is another Grot Gunner from the Forge World Kill Kannon. I gave the shell casings on the model a base coat of Skullcrusher Brass, before giving them a wash of Agrax Earthshade. The shells themselves were painted with Leadbelcher.

I used a variety of greys to paint the Grot’s helmet.

On this Grot from the Big Zzappa, I painted this shoulder belt and this should armour.

This Grot is from the Stompa plastic kit. Another one with a radio and a microphone.

This plastic Grot with a screwdriver is from the Sompa as well. I used Nuln Oil Shade on the drill. Just realised that’s a socket wrench in his belt, will need to paint that using Leadbelcher again.

I added some highlights to the Grots using Warboss Green. I then used Citadel Dry paint, Niblet Green to add highlights. I then did further highlights using Hexos Palesun. I painted his nails and teeth with Ushabti Bone. I painted his two pistols with Leadbelcher.

For the Kill Kannon observer, I painted a lens effect on the observing tool. I painted the entire lens with Thunderhawk Blue and then used Lothern Blue for the reflection before finally adding a drop of white at the top. On the other side of the device I used a drop of Mephiston Red.

I also used a range of greys to paint his trousers.

Still some work to do on these.

…and a little bit more.

Paint disaster aside, I spent some time painting a little bit more of my Ork Stompa.

Here are the feet.

The main problem with the paint was twofold. The first problem was with my Citadel foundation paints they were quite old and had dried out. Second problem was with my Citadel washes, which had gone weird and no amount of mixing could sort them out.

Painting the Stompa

I have started to paint the bodywork of my Ork Stompa.

Ork Stompa

I am going for a predominantly red colour scheme, but I am using various shades of red and some brown for the effect. I am aiming to have something in the end which will be similar to the GW paintjob as I showed in my previous blog post.

Ork Stompa Feet

Having not really done much with my Ork Stompa for a long time… I have recently started to get going again with painting it.

Here are the feet of the Stompa.

As they will be mainly hidden by the large body of the Stompa, I am going to leave them mainly black.

I am going for a predominantly red colour scheme, but I am using various shades of red and some brown for the effect. I am aiming to have something in the end which will be similar to the GW paintjob.

Well as I said something similar…

Ork Stompa Gantry

I have been thinking about more Ork scenery for some time. When recently my son broke his toy crane I was inspired to take the broken section and use it as part of a Stompa Gantry. I have also used parts from an Ork Trukk, an Ork Battlewagon and Imperial Accessories. I have used foamcard for the base and the majority of the model was stuck together with a hot glue gun.

Since my previous post on the gantry I have added some more bits and pieces and some stones to the base.

There are some grab rails from the Ork Trukk kit, as well as an engine on the base. I have also used some of the brass from the Warhammer 40000 basing kit.
