very clean paint job
I haven't bought the drill for the guns yet. i probably should
thanks for the compliments everyone.
Looks really good, but I would like to mention just one thing. Maybe my eyes are finally quitting me after staring at the sun too long, but I can't tell how you painted the metal. It looks almost like a series of greys, which makes it look "stony" to me. If the case is that you just dry brushed metallic paints, I'd try something with a few more clean lines, metal oftenly won't look random and jumbled, like stone does.
Still, everything else looks spectacular to me.

the look of the metal is a result from too heavy of a washing. I painted metallic, washed heavy with badab black then tried to drybrush to get back some of the metallic look.
is there a better way to pain the metal? these are the first guys ive painted using the 'new' gw washes came out so i am still learning to work with them.
Actually, old iron does have a look similar to what you presented in your weapons.
I get similar results when I painst my weapons for orks as well. I figure, technologically, they are inferior to us, and they use whatever they can get thier hands on.. Iron being the easiest metal.
what I do though is edge the weapon with a brighter metal, and add weathering lines from where the blade strikes most often.
This tutorial for painting gretchins and this tutorial for painting orks have some interesting metal ideas you might want to look at.
They look pretty good, clean and nice paint jobs. Personally, I dislike Orks with bright green skin and would like to see it darkened, but that's me.
I actually painted another boy and a nob darker then switched to the light green after seeing them everywhere online and in the AOBR material. I think I may try to paint the nobz and larger orks (special char, elites) a little darker because in my mind the bigger and meaner the ork, the darker shade he becomes. ill take a pic of the two darker models after work tomorrow if i remember.
