Depends on what kind of ork you want, age and experience being the prime factors; the darker the ork skin, the older/harder they tend to be.
For my normal boyz I do a basecoat of Snot Green over black spray, with Green Ink applied to the muscle and face creases, and then drybrush Goblin Green highlights on it. Older orks I shift one green darker; Dark Angels Green highlighted with Snot Green. Younger orks or grots and it's Scorpion Green highlighted with Goblin Green.
i like that idea will try it on a boy to see if its betta than mine in my opinion
Well, I give mine just a go with Flesh Wash over a Goblin Green base skin. this gives'em a slightly brownish green which I quite like.
I give mine a total layer of dark angels green, then drybrush goblin green on that. I then use dark green ink, before doing a very light drybrush of goblin green again.
For 'arder boys I leave the last part out, and just have it green inked, so it just looks darker.
As my fantasy army is green (Sprayed Black,Dark Angels Green, Goblin Green Highlights, Bleached Bone, Light Highlights) my 40K army is Blue (Sprayed Boltgun Metal, Regal Blue, Ice Blue Highlights, Rotting Flesh Light Highlights). I found the Blue actually turned out really well, and for Ard boys I added a 50/50 wash over top of Blue ink/water.
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
i use dark angels, then DA with snot, then snot, then snot with goblin, then goblin....sometimes goblin with some scorpion. it takes some time but the graduation of color really looks great.
