Hi forum.


This is a P&M Blog about a Orkz Klan called (only by the member of the Klan) "Da Krazy Pak"

I'm an Italian guy that likes every possible thing regarding Fantasy and Sci-fi and, of course, I fell in WH 40K like a lot of You moved by these interests.
Had only one game with the ladz and lost, I don't play mainly because of my job (I'm a cook IRL) that keeps me away of the normal times and days where You can find "normal" people around.
That never put me down, I just love to convert my orkz and in the last couple of years (I've been out of the hobby for almost one year recently though) I also started to enjoy painting them.

The following pages will bring You on the road that brought me to rewrite the OP today (29/04/13), the progress of my painting skills and the amazing people that fill Dakkadakka and came with me from the beginning of this adventure or jumped on on the way or yet left midway, but all of them have a piece in my army.

If You want to get along on this journey, You're welcome.

Here the pic of my (painted) army so far, enjoy!

WAAAAAAAAAAAGH!

Cheers Selvaggio. You've got some fantastic conversions here and in your gallery... you should post a few more for folks to see.

As far as your painting goes... looks pretty solid. Three things jump out at me.
1. Drill the barrels of your guns if you can. Makes a big difference in how the finished piece looks.
2. The eyes are kind of distracting as they're a bit random (or at least appear that way in the pic). Until you get really good at painting the eye detail (and there are tutorials out there), you might opt for painting them a solid color for now, then come back and put in the detail after you've gotten the technique down.
3. If I were to hazard I guess, I'd say you prime your figures black and then use a series of drybrushes over the black to build up your colors. Problem is this leaves black in the deep crevices which in the wrong place can leave the figure looking sloppy or unfinished. Consider the hair on top & on his shoulder. You can instead, paint that lighter brown all over the hair areas to cover them fully, then come in with a sepia, delvan mud or badab black wash. This will darken the cracks and natural highlights will develop in the high areas as the wash pulls away. I just think this method give a more clean and polished appearance. Zooming in I suppose it could be possible that you are using washes in these areas, but perhaps too much black? Not sure...

Anyway, just some ideas for you to ponder. Your builds are brilliant though.

AWESOME conversions there. Very inspiring! And your painting isn't half bad. Gitsplitta's advice is good, but most of the ability just comes with practice and a bit of trial and error. Glad ya like converting so much, it's a blast to watch!

Highlight with a lighter orange or golden yellow, then try washing with either baal red or sepia and see which you like better. You might look up CommisarKhaine... he does screaming orange grots and his army looks fantastic.
http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/266318.page

Since they're orks, you can chip the daylights out of them too, that would help.

Thanks for the plug Gits!

For the orange, I use Macharius solar orange as a basecoat. Highlight with vomit brown, shade with ogryn flesh wash. For extreme highlights, you can use bleached bone before washing. Glad to see someone else painting orange!
