Good evening all,
I haven't posted on these forums much (because I have a knack of being accidentally argumentative and upsetting people) so in the spirit of not disagree-ing with everybody, I thought I'd start a thread for a change. Not posted images of my work before, but have entered Golden Demon once or twice (and no I don't get anywhere LOL).
Anyway, to start my workbench off I'm painting up last year's show-only Forgeworld offering.
I give you the runtbot (so-far that is....)
1. Sprayed Black undercoat
2. Used citadel spray gun to base coat with Iyanden Darksun (the spraygun is esstential for a good solid, flat coat on models with so much detail).
3. Sprayed on a heavy (I mean HEAVY) wash of Ogryn Flesh
4. Highlighted up to pure sunburst yellow from a 1:1 mix of Iyanden Darksun/Sunburst Yellow
5. Metal areas started off chaos black, followed by Boltgun Metal.
6. Shading metals: watered down Badab black / Devlan Mud mix.
7. Metals were worked back up to chainmail through pure Boltgun.
8. The pistons received a second wash of devlan mud mixed with a little 'ardcoat varnish to simulate "wet/leaky" oil on the pistons.
9. The freehand was completed on randon flat areas - blue and green used as "spot" colours.
feel free to comment (I promise not to argue this time) LOL!
I like it so far man, really nice looking work. Can't wait to see it finished.

Thanks. I tried to make it a bit "old skool" in terms of brightness. Think back to third edition 40k (1990's orks were very colourful compared to today).
Very nicely decorated with colors and checkers and such, I can tell you really focused on some of the detail!
More ongoing work shots....
..just the shoulders, head and grot to go now. Not everything has turned out how I wanted, but overall I'm happy.
Check out the NMM method used on the upper arm (done with white paint and black ink - no silver involved). Not sure it goes with the blue though
and the front....
and the side.
nearly there! Comments please...
Looks great! It's very bright, yet dirty. (?) Great job on the yellow, waiting for it to be finished!

Brokendoll Miniature Painting - (Coming Soon)
Muse2k8's Painting Antics (WIP and Finished Models thread)
WOW that is one creative Robot. Keep it up !!
5000 pts of WoC, 5000 pts of Orcs and now 3000 pts of Ogres...What was I thinking ????
I used the original ork dreadnought model as inspiration but without the "clean" finish. I wanted to do it bad moons as they are known for their flamboyance and also the most likely (fluff-wise) ork klan to be rich enough to use runtbots instead of runtherds. Bad moons are known for having the most "teef" and displaying their wealth (whilst in an orky manner of course!).
Anyway - there are some things that haven't worked, with hindsight the green was one spot colour too many seeing as it's such a "busy" miniature - I'm glad I din't do too much of it. But overall it's been fun.
Thanks for all the kind comments guys. Much appreciated.
