Hey all,
Well ive done all the usual, married, kids, new job and house and at last i have some time back and have decided to start a new army. Orks never really appealed to me in my younger years but now i really think they suit my painting style and the look im going for.

So far ive painted a Killa Kan and a few Boyz. Just wondered what you guys thought. Im just glad to be back painting again

Prob best click on the pics for a bigger view, the little version in the thread makes them look funny O.o

Your painting is very clean, but I think for orks a bit more dirty is always good, so some brown washes and rust on the weapons will give them a bit more orkish appeal. Nice details, and welcome to the WAAAGH!

The Killa Kan looks great, don't change a thing. The boys look good, but the green is muted. Try brightening the green just a bit.

I really like the boys skin color. What is your secret? I have yet to paint my first model, but have built a small Waaghh. But I am a very big fan of the darker skin. Think it would make Death Skullz pop more?

When I look up I think of the great Waaagh! in the sky.

The Orks are dark, perhaps lighten up the bases, perhaps in a lighter brown, dry brush the rocks up in lighter tans or bleached bone type colors, and the edges of the bases in a base color brown. Just makes the figures stand out when you use colors other than the colors of the model. IMO only. I like them and I would be happy gaming with them.

Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and to hear the lamentations of the women.

Thanks for all the constructive comments, always working on making my models better!

As for skin colour, i use Vallejo reflective green, then a 90/10 army painter dark tone wash. Then AP strong tone and dark tone ink into the cracks to give depth.
