Hello there campers.
Here begins a new Plog for my new Orks. Now leaving only eldar and nids out of my monstrous collection.
I wanted to tone down the skin colour from the snot/goblin green run-o-the-mill tide so tested out a cammo green/bleach bone mix.
I'm a member of the now redundant 800 Naval Air Squadron, AKA Naval Strike Wing and I'm keen for my squadrons heraldry to live on in my orks. So they will be pusser's grey with plenty of black and white chequers [like grey goffs I suppose]. And as an aircraft engineer, I'll be stuffing in plenty of defkoptas for my fluff
Here's a reference image... don't mind the three fat matlots in the way XD
I'm quite pleased with it. Glad to hear the good opinions of the LO community... so what do you think of my Nob? [XD oh the connotations]
Another first today.
My first ever rust effect. It was nail biting but it came out alright. Still need to work on my technique a little but a resounding success
I based the metal in Tin Bitz, stippled with boltgun metal then washed the recesses with watered down blazing orange and finished with delvian mud wash lightly into the recesses.
also you can see the pusser's grey uniforms
LOVE the rust, consider the orange wash idea nicked..
but the skin is a little light for me, thats more of a grot colour for my liking, i usually go with orkhide to bone for nobs, knarlock to bone with boys, well painted and highlighted though, just a little bright for my tastes still
it doesnt look too bad, it could always be the cameras fault, when i used to do orks they where iced blue skin and orange uniforms just in case you could not see them.
I do prefer the lighter tones but a duller colour... if you get what I mean [lighter but less vibrant than knarlock/golbin etc]
The pictures are bad, but it's not the camera, it's the operator. I'm working on that though. Need to figure out good lighting. Maybe even fashion a light box.
BANG DONE! Big Frank...
an I got some play friends for him all, again, from the AoBR nobz.
The left one got a kombi-scorcha made from 2 sluggas and a scorcha back-pack from the old gorka-morka mekboyz.
The middle one got a big choppa by combining the head and haft of 2 choppas [ork konversions are giving me a little orkasm atm... so easy to get away with dodgy splicing XD].
And our armless friend is waiting for a bitz lot to arrive in the post which contains a meganobs power klaw.
I love that making a unit of completely individual miniatures is advantageous in game terms now... big joy
I really like your test Ork! Definitely subscribed to this thread. My only query is that the grey clothes tend to disappear in the overall colour scheme IMO, but that might just be the pic.

Now why haven't I noticed this thread before? They're looking very cool Mr Davidian. The colour scheme, bizarre as it may be, works well on Orks. Not sure what that says about you but it works on Orks
............will you be appearing as an Ork Mek boy?
