Starting at the top we have the big guy (even bigger guy to follow)

Gone with a metal warboss instead to black reach one I really cant get on with the plastic one as standard, will have to chop one up at some point

As these are all city themed I've used quite a few resin bases there are some great ones out there but im trying to avoid to many dupes

Sorry, but the skin is too light for me. Great painting, but not so for the skin color, sorry.

Actually I disagree here. There possibly should be more contrast between the grotz and the Boyz but the Boyz look like they have a much greater depth of colour to them. I like the over-all effect a lot. What method did you use?

dave8oy
02-06-2009, 22:39
the skins nice and easy

black undercoat
knarloc green
brown wash
knarloc green again
then gretchin green highlight
the bleached bone highlight

a few mixes in between for char minis just to smooth it out

brother slaughterer
03-06-2009, 07:01
I like the paler green, makes a change from the usual orky green.
The whole look of the army is IMO quite weathered and rusty which i think suits orks, especially the older style minis that youve used so well done Dave.

let me know when going on ebay, cheers

03-06-2009, 18:08
The grot bikes are great :)

I love that old wartsnagga model too (although I never know his name until I read it here). For a long time I used him as a grot herder with powerclaw and slugga, although we can't do that any more :(

dave8oy
03-06-2009, 23:01
yea i had to have someone point his name out to me as well :-)

Excellent army so far, I don't generally like a mixture of older and current models, but your Kommandos are winning me over.

Flash Git?

dave8oy
03-06-2009, 23:17
I have the old free boota kaptain primed and ready to paint but may save him for a future army or as a treat for finnishing more units of boyz


I'm really after some old mad boyz if anyones got some to sell/spare?

dave8oy

can anyone tell me if stick bomberz are still a choice in 5th edition?

Looking great, and I like the colour of the skin, and the way you have painted it. It looks kind of rough and leathery, which is how i'd expect an ork to be.

Well done, some great models there, and nice to see some of the old school stuff

You may upgrade your boyz units to have Stikkbomms.

Same applies to Ard Boyz, you may pay to equip one Ork Boyz unit with Eavy Armour (only one unit though).

Hope that helps. :)

dave8oy
06-06-2009, 00:47
Ah I see so I can find a use for the stickbomb minis :-)

I take it there equiped as per usual (i.e. slugga choppa) and the bombs are extra equipment?

Kriegfreak
06-06-2009, 01:05
I'll give this project 5/5 Waaaghs.

Those grot bikers are freaking rad. I love them, just killer. Nice clean paint jobs for Orks to, the skin tone and highlights on the boyz are especially impressive.

aye that's correct.

If you REALLY want, you could give em shootas instead...

But nah, Choppa/slugga with stikkbomms will usually work better.

I'm in love with your grot bikers. The first one is the best, the look of absolute terror on the grots face as he zooms along.

rob_alderman
07-06-2009, 20:26
The Grot bikers are cool. Great use of the excellent rogue trader Ork Bikes.
Would look excellent if you have enough for a full unit!

dave8oy
08-06-2009, 07:49
got one more to come :-) how many are you classing as a full unit?

rob_alderman
08-06-2009, 10:22

Update time again :-)

Been working on this for ages now its the first time I've painted something this big. Now its done and I'm happy with it, just need put it to one side so I don't start trying to fine tune it and add more snots :-)

As you can see this is one well specked looted tank loads'a spiky bitz, boarding ramp, wreaker ball, stick bomb lobbas, search light and grot riggers
here's the 360 view of it

These are some really good looking orks! The "flat grot" is awesome, where did you get thet model? Your grot bikers are awesome too and i like the first bike most. One thing about the search light on the tank, you might get a really fine pensil and paint one dot up in the right corner.

dave8oy
15-06-2009, 15:32
the flat grots from the warhammer giant sprew :-)

as for the dot I'm not going near this with a paint brush again ...it'll end up back in the "still to be finnished" pile :-)

dave8oy

dave8oy
15-06-2009, 23:21
can anyone sugest if its worth givin a 20 strong slugga boyz mob any special weapons? i can see the point with shoota's but not with sluggas (cant you tell i dont play 5th edition :-)

rob_alderman
15-06-2009, 23:48
That is one awesome looted tank there!

Love the flat grot, loads of nice touches. I hope my looted vehicle looks as cool as this!
Quite a lot of different kits there. DOes this mean we have a battlewagon and wartrukk to look forward to?

dave8oy
16-06-2009, 00:13
no battle waggon yet but trukk's....maybe but got somthing else planned first......

dave8oy

dave8oy
21-06-2009, 20:02
no static grass im afraid I'm going with a ruined city theme for this army so lots of smashed concrete and city stuff

Morthai
21-06-2009, 20:46
Nice looking log! The grot bikers are simply amazing. Iím not a fan of the old commandos though. Comparing them with the recent editions orks, they look soft and gentle in total unorky way.
Nice selection of bits on the looted wagon. The flatted grot definitely should be messier. Keep it up ;)

dave8oy
21-06-2009, 20:59
cheers :-) i know what you mean about the old kommandos the new ones are nice, looks like im gonna have to break out the paints on that flattened grot :-(

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/davey80y/orks/P1080813.jpg

He's for a little side project I've been thinking about for some time (I also need help collecting the rest of his crew if anyone's willing to part with any old freeboota mini's.....) I'll be keeping a eye on ebay for them and some mad boys as well so expect intermittent updates on these boyz

-=Lazuli=-
24-06-2009, 02:27
Wow, he looks great! Perfect except for the freehand skull. There is a greyish blob in the middle of the lower jaw. I mean the freehand is great, but I noticed that part. Ah, what am I saying? I could never do better!

dave8oy
24-06-2009, 09:54
The skull's a transfer :-), the bones are free hand as is the eye patch, don't know what the black blob is its not there IRL :-? I'm making myself a proper light box setup so will retake ALL these photos, that should also get rid of the horrible shinny bits on the back of his coat as well :-) till then you'll all have to suffer these sub par photos :-P

dave8oy
24-07-2009, 11:27
bit of a random update again here but I got this from ebay this week and had to paint it ASAP :-) always loved this mini but never got round to painting it....until now!!

Sheena Easton
24-07-2009, 13:27
Nazdreg Ud Ubgruba (not sure on the exact spelling of the last name and pretty sure he had more of it and some Imperial title as well, but can't be arsed to look it up)

Ironjens
24-07-2009, 13:42
Almost correct, his name according to the lovely old 2nd ed. codex is "Nazdreg Ug Urdgrub" - Bad Moon Warlord operating out of the space hulk Ognazdreg Gargdurslagulk (code name Scylla). His special skill allowed you to take a D3-1 extra strategy cards at the start of the battle.

I always thought the model didn't do justice to him as he was supposed to be both ostentious and overweight... But you've done a good job.

dave8oy
24-07-2009, 13:43
****we have a winner !!!!****

The Clairvoyant
24-07-2009, 15:25
love the nazdreg model. In fact I love all the old stuff.

And ognazdreg gargdurslagulk means 'nazdregs big spaceship', well, technically 'owned by nazdreg, huge fortress stronghold spaceship'
Wow, I never thought I'd be able to remember all that!

Anyway, keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more in the future

Azroth
24-07-2009, 16:58
Very nice work so far. I absolutely love the looted Russ, it has so many good ideas and cool elements that I might potentially loot. And the Grot bikers, although not quite my cup of tea, are very original and cute.

I'm hoping for more vehicles along the lines of that Russ. Keep it up.

dave8oy
14-08-2009, 14:54

i agree that you should base him on 40mm, at the moment he just doesnt look right with his feet comming off the base. appart from that it all looks good. i would absalutly LOVE to buy your stuff caus it is great but i dont play orks.....:cries::cries::cries:

dave8oy

Looking very good - I think I prefer this new scheme. One comment is that highlighting up to such a whitish color makes things look a bit chalky, and a green glaze over the skin and yellow glaze over the yellow parts would probably do a lot to help the colors pop out.

I find green dilutes the highlights to much, it does look better IRL

still not sure if i should mount the entire sqaud on 40mm bases or just the nob?

kormas
05-09-2009, 10:52
*stunned silence*..........................wow........just. .............wow..........

that nob is AWSOME, christ...... pm sent about your commissions

as for the rest of the squad, yes, they should all be on 40mm, it really adds to the squad and if i am honest, assuming that the rest of them are a simmiler size then they just look silly with their feet hangin off the base

dave8oy
06-09-2009, 00:54
glad you like :-)


i've ordered some more 40mm resin bases for the rest of the squad

you'll notice a lot of repeats of heads im not complaining the helmet-less ork heads are among my favourite to paint :-)

Wow, I'm not a big orc fan, but I think now I am :D
These Orcs are looking fantastic!
I like the darker green of their skin, they're looking way better than the GW orcs :)
Keep it up!!

ITS PARTY HAT TIME!!! today officially marks 2 years of me back painting so I thought I'd take a second to show my progress so far.....

this is best example I can find :-

first we have a warboss I painted and sold on ebay, he was the first mini I got stuck into with a very limited paint selection and even more limited knowledge

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/davey80y/orks/40korkwarboss13.jpg


then we have almost the same mini that I did a few month ago.... can anyone spot a difference....

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/davey80y/orks/P1070025.jpg

I'd be the first to admit I've got a LONG way to go before I get to close olden daemon entry time but practice practice practice and who knows one year I may enter..........

Time for a quick update....


Been sent a few more ork's to paint this is the first one done, gotta admit i enjoyed painting this one. Been painting lots of marines lately so it made a nice change...

Again was asked to leave the base clear so they can keep to there own army basing theme............ stay tuned for more

Brother Alexos
02-02-2010, 01:04
could you show us some more of those Snots on a tank? I think that they are fantasy, am I correct?

I love the snots from fantasy, because they really show how grots and snots only get crap weapons from the army's scrap, and I think you personafied this really well.

dave8oy
02-02-2010, 10:52
unfortunately the tanks gone to a new home :-(

but your right they were fantasy snots, got loads of em in a box somewhere will need to drag em out and paint them at some point....

dave8oy
04-02-2010, 14:27
Here's the 2nd biker commission.

Again I've been asked to leave the base blank so the customer can do their own thing....

Really need to paint more ork bikers, they have to be some of the best GW mini's out at the moment...

Hi dave8oy,

Superb models and excellent painting, really wish I could get myself to that kind of standard! One day I'm sure :)

Love the mix of classic and new Orks, especially the new commissioned stuff.

I'm banging my head against the wall trying to work out where that last chaps' gun comes from... I know it was from one of the Ork Heavy sets back in the day but I can't find a pic on Stuff of Legends :( I'm sure I have one somewhere though.

Am I right in thinking that the weapon is the "top half" of one of the shoulder mounted heavy guns?

Keep up the great work!

Cheers,
Harv :)

dave8oy
24-02-2010, 11:24
cheers :-)

they came pre converted but i'd say its made of at least one old deathskull loota big shoota maybe with bits from another one as well and a new ork burna arm/bit of a gun
