not bad, i would recommend some inks. they do a marvelous job. use black or brown on the ork skin and they will have shading in the groves.

for leather & tarnish on the weapons, never be w/out fleshwash.

also, a tip for the faces, orky eyes are really hard at first, so get as little paint on the brush as possible & hold the brush really close to the bristles.

also, paint the grin with snakebite leather & pick out the teeth in bleached bone.

other than that, great!

Gryphonne Sepia and Badab Black will help immensely.

The bold colour scheme will look great on the battlefield, IMO.

Thanks guys
I will put another coat of thraka green on the Ork hide. So the arms and faces have more definition.
I used Delvan mud on all the none green surfaces. I'm not sure if I want to put more on.
Thanks for tips on faces, the few I have done made the orks look a bit silly
More to come soon

For the Kan and bikes I'd suggest picking a few armor plates at random and painting them Red. Something to break up the scheme a little bit, but still as gaudy and clashy.

In the main I think you should do some washes as suggested, but most especially the yellow areas need work.

I'd suggest some ochre drybrushing, and some brown drybrush over that on areas closer to the ground and fading less and less towards the higher parts of the model, to simulate dust and mud accumulation.

An additional step with washes or drybrush will give some additional depth and detail to your army, and make 'em look 10x more dakka!

Why don't you try using gryphonne sepia on the yellow, it will break up some of the flat surfaces, meaning that they aren't quite so garish.
Thraka green on the skin and badab black on the metal will work well, meaning that the colours aren't quite as flat

I took some AOBR nobs and did some simple conversions with them. I had some extra terminator arms and I decided to put a few of them on these nobs. These nobs all have shiny new cyborik arms complete with Lightning claws(count as PKs), and one with a Shoota/big Shoota.

Standing right behind you...

Please take some more time and effort to paint your models instead of hurriedly plonking on paint and posting as quickly as you can.

Base coat your models black, use a smaller brush, stop loading paint all over the cracks - just follow the standard rules.

I suggest you keep painting and practicing, just don't be i such a hurry to post them on the internet, give it a year or two and you should be better.

I like the yellow for looking down on a table full of the guys - good stand out army colour.

Have an experiment with creating a wash - making a thin wash with beastial brown or similar and putting it over the yellow would tone down the glare, pick out the shadows and help show contrast.

There are 10 types of people in the world - those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I painted up the Orc Nobs with the looted termi arms I add some colors, to weapons and did a very heavy wash on on everything.
Sorry about the pics, it is very cloudy and snowy here, and my flash overpowered the minis I think.

Thanks to everyone that suggested using gryphon sepia wash it is a nice red/brown rust color

Standing right behind you...

There's generally a rule whenever painting minis that you try not to use over four or five colours when painting, it makes the model look simpler and not as busy. Try not to use ten colours on each model.
Once had a match against a little kid with a Nid army, he had a group of genestealers called: 'The Flying Circus'. Let me tell you all that colour made my head spin.

And whilst the washes do make them look slightly better, you still need to basecoat your models.

Big update here.
I painted up the rest of my kommados and some burnas/lootas.
I am taking a small break with from my waaagh and painting/repainting some of my renegade SM force.
I really like the Red renegade, not sure about the other 2 if I want to add those schemes to my force.
Enjoy, C&C always welcome.

A criticism (with best intent of the renegades: I'm not seeing anything renegade about them; they look just like loyalist marines!

I assume though, that although they're renegade, they might not be "chaotic" as you used loyalist models and not chaos space marine models... so is this supposed to be a chapter completely independent of both the imperium and chaos? I like that idea, and I don't think it's used often enough.

Either way, even if you paint an "X" over the imperial symbols, or maybe scratch them off or desecrate them in some other way, so you get the idea across!

I am adding some guys to my renegade warband. I am mixing SM and CSM minis into my units. The SM minis are keeping their imperium icons as an insult to their former battle brothers.. Death to the False emperor..... I really liked the idea of newer SM convert over to chaos. Thats why I have so many SM models, but hey life is so much better on the dark side.
