After a few months of absence from the hobby I decided to pull out my Ork tank that I had modeled and give it a paint job. You can see pictures of it after I primed it here:
First, let me state that I do not claim to be an excellent painter. I'm only posting this in the "Painting" section to show the model in its final state. I have attached several pictures below. I wasn't really happy with the pictures because the sunlight was too bright, the flash washed out the details, and it was too dark without either. So I included a couple of each to give a good idea of what it looks like.
My biggest concern with painting it was that I may have gone a little overboard with the mud effect. All comments and feedback is appreciated.

hahaha that is a great conversion my friend. I love the guy poking out of the side gun turret with a spear Nice work!
Not at all, mate, it looks like it's been driving through a foot-deep muddied battlefield like it should. If anything, there is not enough mud on the sides of the treads. The mud looks excellent, how did you do it?I may have gone a little overboard with the mud effect
Rep for a nice conversion.
It's really nice how you made it taller than it should be, very Orky. I like it a lot, simple paint job and it looks really good overall.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.

Thank you everyone for your feedback.
I made the mud using an water-based acrylic "leather brown" with a "wood brown" combined with baking soda, modeling sand, Elmer's white glue, and a little natural dirt. After this dried it looked a little too real, like I had just dropped the model in mud and it dried. So I went back through and added Devlan Mud wash to the treads and the very bottom of the tank to make it look like wet mud.
