Here you go Vik.

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/thetrolltrader/

And here is one of his current bits bags. (just do a search on the shop for "bits bags".)

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Warhammer-Space-Orks-47632-Bits-Bag-/310686227622?pt=UK_Toys_Wargames_RL&hash=item4856579ca6

Again with postage less than £16, for 14 figures plus 2 vehicles plus extras.(it's £18 for a pack of 10 ork boys from GW.)



I know they are not all perfect, and there is work to be done on many, but that's the fun part. If I just buy this and get a unit of boys and a trukk I have saved a fortune, and I can see an old dreadnaught body, part of a catapult, defkopta blades, and several of the boys are old metal by the look of it.

I know it's pot luck, and you can say some of it is scrap, but not me, every bit is useful.

Anyways enough of the salesman pitch, have a wonder through his shop. I have never had a bad deal yet.


@ Shas. Thank you, I guessed at it being a "Buggy" I was after your expert eye on the chassis. It actually works really well, and was thinking of using it for upcoming Grot tank project. I guess like Vik it's a 1:72 WW2 model, but which one? Tiger?

Nice haul Cam, I often search for the bitz bags; job lots; sprues; etc, rather than a standard Ork Boyz type search. IOften unearths some real bargains...

As for the little tankette on the last page, it's almost certainly a Universal Carrier (also known as a Bren Gun Carrier) with a few 40k addons. Looks like it's a 1:72 scale version.

He's not too highlighted, he's just fresh to the desert and hasn't tanned yet. It's all looking great, and I'm glad your not dead too.

I knew there was something I meant to comment on and didn't get round to...

I think the Ork's skin looks great.

Your 'umie skin looks, in those photos, to have lost it's contrast. May just be the lighting flattening it in the photos. The shading doesn't appear to go as dark as it did before...

Also, I don't know if this is a thing with the model, but it looks like there's little irregular pits on the back of his left shoulder that don't appear to blend into the surrounding flesh. These are the main problem I see.

I hope that helps, it sounds a bit negative really (sorry). Keep at it, you are making progress.

The great thing I find if you over do Ork skin highlighting is that just give it another Green wash tends to tone it down and bring the highlights together.

Human skin in the first photo is looking good, if very pale (if that was an attempt at 5 o'clock shadow, it looks very realistic). Second photo (back left shoulder) is look blotchy (though that could just be the extreme close up), but agree with Dr H, it and the third photo don't have enough contrast. You might have gotten away with it if it was a female soldier...

I have this exact trouble with human skin too - getting the required amount of contrast while maintaining smooth transitions without blotchiness. I think it's more practice for the both of us

Hi

@ Theo. LOL yup fresh meat for the grinder.
@ Shas. Thank you will look those up, I think even with my massive paint collection I have gaps like this.
@ Dr H. I am with you, I think I washed it too far. It looks bleached IRL. Think I will start again. Got to clean up that glue around the shoulder joints anyways, been bugging me.
@ Arakasi. Great to hear from you sir. Yup orks are great, and for some reason way easier than 'umies.

Thank you guys, really helpful stuff as always, please keep it coming. I will try and get some done, to show you. Been distracted badly this week by the Walking Dead. BLAME DAVE.

You all going on about it I thought may be I will have a little look. So Sunday night watched the whole of season 1. Onto season 2 now, then I find out that Sky are deleting it on the 30 Nov. I now got to finish it in a week!!!!! THANK YOU>>>>>>DAVE.

Managed to drag myself away....

So I decided to cheat and threw Sepia wash and an Ogryn flesh wash over the marine.





And threw together this fella.







So really tried to pay attention on this ork to all that you guys had said, I think I need to take the highlights on his skin further, however I am really happy with how Dark his flesh looks. Your thoughts please.

Cheers

I love the pose on the orks... he's just kind of klumping along. The back scabbard is a great idea too. You even made a scimitar for him... nice touch!

Coming along well, Cam. The Ork's skin looks very good in particular (don't get too carried away with the highlights on it, less is more sometimes).

I have to say though, that my first thought when I saw the pose was "Look, I can even do da funny walk...".

LOL! or he could be punting a grot like a living football for getting in his way, a sailing grot with a shocked look would be priceless attached.

Orky mortar team. The grot holds the shell and the Ork kicks it to the objective. On the roll of a one the grot drops shell as he's about to be kicked and the Charlie Brown Ork mortar dies in the explosion.
