    Ork Shirts and other "Under " torso bits

    How do people normally paint ork shirts? I've seen everything from brown, to clan colors to bright red. Personally, browns always looked a bit... off to me (foundation brown). I switch off between blue (For my death skullz) and brown.

    The real problem I have is that I assemble everything first, then paint. Sometimes I cant paint parts of the mini, but I don't think that matters, since those parts are the ones people will only see once they REALLY closely examine it.

    I guess my question is: How much detail do you guys put into those kind of parts of a model when painting an army (not a vanity piece or w/e)? I normally do one or two well in a squad, realize that will take forever if I'm that meticulous, and resort to a technique I call "Indiscriminant brown" , although sometimes its blue. Anyone else find themselves using this master technique?

    I am verbose. Sorry.

    I use a mix of citadel browns (Scorched Brown, Bestial Brown, Snakebite Leather, Bubonic Brown, Vermin Brown, Graveyard Earth and Dark Flesh ) and Blues (Regal Blue, Ultramarine Blue, Enchanted Blue) for my dethskull clothes but sometimes its a good idea to have some black ones instead. What about greys (Shadow Grey, Codex Grey, Fortress Grey) and Colors like Kommando Khaki, Desert Yellow there other colors are a great alternative to brown.

    Its good to even give him a quick run over with a foundation washes they make my clothes look that little better better and Mayby add a highlight of lighter brown. Its just your call really how far and Long you want to work on them.
