I do!
The only thing I think is wrong with the trukk is those stupid cardboard spikes at the bottom.
Replace them with something bigger, better, and not so un - orky

Here is a commission for Pedro Cantor, he wanted to do the basing himself, but i painted it for him.
I love painting space marines. C&C welcomed.

Keep posting your sweet models, they're really rather good!!

Lost of people just view threads and don't bother posting so don't feel disheartened about lack of replies.

I have to say that i agree with SuperSN and think you need better spikes on the front of your trukks.

Keep it up,

You get some pretty nice reults for using Folk Art. I could never get any decent coverage out of the stuff.

Forgive me for asking this rather rudely ( well not rude , but im not sure how to word it differently :< )

Are the free hand on the tech priest done by a different medium? i noticed the shading and high light on the free hand itself is smoother than the actual model itself.

I was going to say, you may want to upgrade to model line acrylic paints like GW, P3, Reaper Master Series, Vallejo etc. You seem to be a pretty good painter and I can assure you, it will make a world of difference.

My first few models I ever painted where done with a Mix of Folk Art and Apple Barrel craft paints, once I actually ponied up for some GW paints I never looked back.

You are doing great man. As previously stated those freehands are awesome!

I haven't used reaper paints but GW, P3 and Vallejo are awesome paints, once you try them you'll never want to use craft paint on minis again. Grab a bottle here and there and you'll be hooked.

Thanks peeps.

@ LunaHound: i used the same paint for the freehand. I didn't draw it first either, i just straight up painted it on his cloak.

Unfortunately I finished the trophy and gave it to the guy running the GT and forgot to photograph it. When the GT comes around in October I will make sure to photograph the full trophy itself and resubmit it.

Now that my commissions are done im gonna be getting back to my ork army. I have my kommandos pretty much done and my 'Ard Boyz are a WIP now. Will get more photos up in a bit.

So its been a while since I have posted and I have been quite busy. Got a lot of updates to post. Hope you all enjoy.

I did photograph the trophy along with all the other trophies at the GT, but it was with my friends camera so i don't have the pictures. Hope to get them up soon!

I have to finish basing my kommandos, top knot squad boyz. I also have some WIP shots of my zzap gunner krew and kind of a snapshot of my next and last squad of trukk boyz.
Please feel free to leave comments.

Hmm some place looks chalky , and others glossy.

Perhaps some matt varnish would work well.

Exactly what I was thinking.

GJ Otherwise though.

Yeah i did hit em up with matte varnish, i think the lighting really brings it out. I should probably hit some up again. Im just nervous of over spraying them and getting them dusty. The yellow ones haven't been sprayed with the matte yet because im not quite done with the basing.

Hey yall, been a while since i posted. I got another squad of boys done. It's tough painting orks due to the fact that there are so many. Not an easy task. I put the orks on hold for a bit.

I purchased another army. Chaos space marines. Im going undivided, kinda sick of all the nurgle players out there. So im going old school with iron warriors. I will get some pics posted soon, got over 100k pts painted so far.

I also made a life changing feat. I went to GW paints and man can I tell the difference. I will never go back to cheap craft store paints.

I dunno but it seems like your orks skin texture is a bit different...hmmmm it's not a bad thing, it just seems different compared to the usual orks i see....How did you paint the skin?

Your freehand work is very good. I like your color selections throughout your army. The skin tones on the Orks look a little rough, but it may have been the paints or primer you used. Overall, I really like your work.

If you're really concerned about varnishing the models and getting that 'dusty' look, Vallejo sells a paint on acryllic matt finish. I typically gloss coat my models, then use it to get rid of the shine and it typically does a good job of protecting the models during gameplay.

Looking forward to seeing more pics.
