Alrighty then! Welcome to my new log!

This one will be used to push me into building an army properly and sticking with it! And the chosen army is the green tide of ORKS!

So a little background as to why orks, basically cause they are awsome! I can have alot of fun with them and i like painting them! Also as one of my best mates moved to cypres and was the biggest ork player going and i feel it only fair that in his absense our local GW gets another crazy ork to fill his boots!

Most of you have seen the test model i painted but i will post him here again!




This is how i plan to paint the skin and the blue armour as im doing deathskulls! The clothing will be various shades similar to this guy!

Here is my planned 1k list that i will work towards!


Warboss – Eavy’ armour, slugga (Shootier, more dakka), power claw, bionic arm, bionic bonce, iron gob.


Nobz Retinue x5 – Eavy armour, bionic arm, bionic bonce, Uge Choppas, slugga (blastas)



Shoota Boyz x10 – Nob (iron gob, big shoota), 3x Big shootas


Burna Boyz x 10 – Big Mek (burna), 4x Burnas


Burna Boyz x 10 – Big Mek (burna), 4x Burnas



Kommandos x10 – Nob (power claw, iron gob) Rokit launcha, tankbusta bombs


Total 1005pts

46 models

I know its not very deathskully at the min but the next 1k will include all the lootas and vehicles!

So today before i go to bristol to visit my GF i plan to get my painting comp entry finished that i was meant to do for yesterday and make a start on a burna boyz unit!

Ta very much! I plan to make the stripe bigger on the next guy and distinguish squads throughh different styles of paint!


27-05-2007, 13:39
How did you paint your green skin?

Angel Robertson
27-05-2007, 13:42
Dark angels green over black. Snot green, snot green scorpian green 50/50 then straight scorpian! WIth a couple of snot green glazes to blend it together!

Right i really should go paint!


27-05-2007, 14:07
That's a nice skin mix Angel Robertson. Your tester looks great. You going for Deathskulls or just chose the blue cause it looks cool? It does look cool bye the way.

Isn't it funny how many different styles of skin mixes there are out there for orks. (there you go, thought for the day:) )

27-05-2007, 14:27
The blue colour on the shoulderpad looks great! very good skintones aswell....

27-05-2007, 15:08
Very nice, the blue and the green compliment each other nicely.
You can't go wrong with Death Skulls! :)

27-05-2007, 15:43
Really nice job of the ork there mate. Maybe just a highlight on the black parts, but other than that looks awsome. Keep it up. :D

Oakalie doakalie! For once im not breaking a promise of pics! *dramatic music*

*drum roll*





Ok ok they are s***e photos but they are very photoyish! I may have made that word up!

Anywhoo . . . This was meant to be an entry for a painting comp on sat, as you can see it still needs alot of work done! The skin needs its final highlight, the blue needs highlights, the teeth, guns and nails all need paint to! But you get the idea of what i was going for! Although there are no grotz in the army i think they are cool and i am going to finish this anyway!!

More to come . . .scroll down little children . . . there is candy in my next post . . .

I shall say it again, anywhoo . . .


For some reason these pics were very dark! But this is the 5 regular slugga boyz from the first burna boyz unit! Need two more highlight layers and glazes on the skin and its done and the metal has been basecoated! May sneak 30min tomorrow and thats it so if i do another update on them tomorrow!

Let me know what you think and also any thoughts on good looking worn metals!

One of my mates after a long very drunken weekend in stolkholm actually used gummie bears to make a trail from a kids seat on the plane to his then up his leg . . . still being half cut we found it halarious, the flight stewards did not!

Cheers SC!

Which bit of the back plate?

Well kelly is offreing to but me a ticket and come out the see you on my b'day so we can get a game in at some point soon!

Back on the topic of the orks i managed to get the orks based, well i added sand and that is it! Had awsome weather here so been enjoying that!

As for grot tanks i want to use the little eylsian things, centaurs i think and add big gunz to them for my grotz to ride round and blow stuff up with!


Angel Robertson
