hey guys,

I\'m in a little pickle, I have decided to repaint my Orks in a different colour scheme (from Blue to Red)

Just wondering what you guys thought. I would have done this as a poll, but not sure how:blush:

I personally drawn towards painting them all in the red theme.

Man i should have spent all of tonight painting the dread for the comp:S

I\'m still deciding what color to paint my Orks so I\'m not going to be a huge help. I kinda like the blue better myself.

I\'ve been thinking about having each mob have some unifying marking (Either the mob\'s boss\' mark or color). But then I just plain don\'t know.

Also, you might want to shrink down the pics, it\'s really screwing up the frames.

Nice Job bro

Yep red definately.

Although I don\'t particularly like the isea of us fighting each other sporting such similar colours it does suit em better and red goes better with green anyway... especially ork green.

Fine. Looks like I\'m out numbered. I\'ll just paint my Orks Blue to spite you all!

THUPTHTHTHTHT!!!! :P

Freebootin Piraty Orks is the best Orks! My army in it\'s 1000pt incarnation is more Goff than Badmoon but I like badmoon colors better. Hows that for confusing?

I\'d love to... Once I actually get around to painting any of them, that is. I\'m quite impressed by your painting of the Orkish skin. Which method did you use (washes and/or dry brush and what colors)?

The way things are going I expect that I\'ll have the Killa Kan painted first. When I get it done I\'ll swipe a buddy\'s Digital camera and post it.

Cool! look forward to see it.:)

As for the skin, i have been experimenting. The one i prefere the most is:

a dark green (forest green, i think), i then dry brush goblin green, I do this a few times until i have enougth green on em, finaly I drybrush again using a yellow ( i do this on the most highest parts of the skin)

I hope that help, i have trouble with words when describing how I do things.:blush: Showing is much easier;)

Your description is pretty good as is. The yellow is the step I\'ve not heard before. I\'ll give that a try.

So far I have painted an Orc Blood Bowl Team and I used Dark Angels Green over black primer, then a hvy dry brush of Goblin Green then a Dark angels wash then a lighter goblin green drybrush. It looks ok, but I\'m thinking the yellow or a brighter green might be in order to further shade the skin on my Boyz. The BB Orcs look a little bland compared to some I\'ve seen (including yours).

Thanks.

Yeah I use yellow in my highlights on orc/k\'s. I find it works better and they dont look pale, they look greener as a result.

Definately use yellow (I mix into my base skin colour to get the highlight mix rather than neat though...)
