    Shabbadoo's WH40K Log (Dark Angels, Orks, Word Bearers, etc.)

    So, with only a few models actually finished being painted, I've decided to begin a project log for my Orks, as the upcoming stuff has finally succeeded in lighting a fire under my butt to actually do something. I suffer from APADD(Acute Painter’s Attention Deficit Disorder), so it is a big step for me to actually concentrate on a single thing for any length of time. I know I am not alone in this.

    EDIT: Oh hell. At least I got a bunch of assembling done on one army, but it's all gone to crap now. And yes, I am laughing right along with you. This is now a log of EVEYTHING WH40K I am working on which will primarily be Dark Angels, Orks, Word Bearers, Imperial Guard, and Tau. A few others models may sneak their way in here and there. I'll be posting some oldies but goodies that I still have as well.

    For my first post, here are pics of what I have painted. These are my prototype models for figuring out how I want to paint all of the Orks I have. The trukk is just something I built for Gorka Morka, but I may work it into the list somehow. These models are painted simply enough that I think I will be able to stick with them long enough to get a full army done. I do paint better than this, but I'm willing to cut a few corners to actually have a full army painted to a decent standard for the first time. I'll likely spend more time on models I really like or that are HQ choices. We'll have to wait and see.

    The prototype Ork models and the Trukk:

    Very nice. I am very much interested on what you will do to the new trukk. Keep it up!

    I like the truck, the raised platform desperately needs to have a 'uge boss bellowing orders at underlings and the driver. Think back seat driver, multiplied.

    I also love the work you've done on the skin, really nice highlighting.

    Good luck keeping your interest!

    Re: Shabbadoo's Ork Army Log

    I've combined my previous two units of Trukk Boyz into one mob now by dropping one of the Nobz and both of the Burna Boyz I had in each mob, so now I am down to 17 models in this particular unit of Slugga Boyz. I'll add in two Big Shoota Boyz and one additional Boy to round them out at 20 models. I have painted the skin on about half of them so far.

    For a while I considered repainting all of my Ork skin in more muted green tones, but as I already had this much done, and I am OK with it, why repaint what is already done and doesn't look half bad in the first place?

    The skin is painted as follows:

    Black Base Coat
    Heavy Goblin Green dry brush
    Dark Angels Green wash(60/40 water/paint mix roughly)
    Camo Green dry brush

    The Dark Angels Green wash serves to tint both the Goblin Green and the Black Base Coat in the recesses of the musculature, which ties everything together nicely enough.

    Only simple techniques are used, but that is what I wanted- something that looks decent but that is simple to do. Anybody can do this. Really simple would be Dark Angels Green with a Goblin Green or Camo Green drybrush, but I wanted a bit more depth without having to do some really intense hand painted skin tones. I'll save that for special models later on. I also tend to use a black base coat on "bad guys" or on models that I plan to paint in a dark color scheme, irregardless of what army they are for. As for Orks, they will be painted mostly in darker colors or metallics, so for me black is the basecoat of choice(usually). For painting lighter colors over black I usually undercoat with the shading color, then paint over that with the base color, following that up with a wash of the shading color and a final highlight with a slightly lightened base color. I'll not use more than 4 painting stages on any of the colors on the basic models in this army, and I'll usually use only 2 or 3.

    Here are some more pics(more to come):

    Re: Shabbadoo's Ork Army Log

    Here is a pic of a Looted Basilisk I have been working on off and on. I got back into working on it now that I know it has some usefulness to it under the new codex as a Looted Wagon with a Boomgun. I have washed the plasticard bits with black paint so the detail that I’ve added so far stands out a bit better in the pics. Much more needs to be added to it other than the Ork crew. I call it “The Mouth of Gork”. When Gork speaks, the enemy is in for some poundin’!

    In pic #1 the gun lowered, or in "assault mode" as I call it. In the other pics the gun is raised and is "ready to speak". :skull:

    Orks NEVER run out of ammo. They rip out life support sytems and interior workin's just to make room for MORE ammo, not to mention very unsafely strapping even MORE ammo to the outside of the vehicle!

    The basilisk is awesome, the skull armour plating is very creative.

    Re: Shabbadoo's Ork Army Log

    Yellow is one of the last colors I paint on the models. After everything else is done, I paint the areas that will be yellow with a basecoat of Bubonic Brown(which is ochre yellow basically). Bubonic Brown has good coverage over most colors, even Black, and as a basecoat it helps to keep the color a bit more dull/toned down. After that it gets a coat of Golden Yellow. That is it.

    Re: Shabbadoo's Ork Army Log

    Here is an update on the Mouf uv Gork.

    I just couldn't leave the front heavy shoota alone, so I replaced it with a scratch-built sponson instead. I built the sponson because I also had another evil plan in mind, which also involved some other modifications. Another reason is that I wanted to alter the look of the Chimera hull a bit more. I may alter it further as I go along.




    Originally, the lower teeth on the “Mouf uv Gork” were glued directly to the Chimera hull, so I bashed ‘em free and re-attached them to a new plate which I mounted on the front of the Boomgun platform. Now, the whole Boomgun platform slides out, and it can be replaced with a *transport platform*. So, as a Looted Wagon can have a Boomgun *or* skorcha, I made the sponson so that it can hold a big shoota to go with the Boomgun, or a skorcha for when I want to use the transport platform configuration. I’ll mount a couple of big shootas on the transport platform too, which is sized to hold 12 models(one of them being a Nob). These two big shootas will follow the same pattern as the one mounted on the sponson, which I refer to as the "twig n' berries pattern big shoota".

    Re: Shabbadoo's Ork Army Log

    ...and a pic from the side, which shows things a bit better. The gun barrel has a little bit more added to it, but its about finished. I'm not sure if I'll do anything else to it or not.

    EDIT: I almost forgot to show you the kustom Boomgun shell I made! The shell will get molded and cast in resin, as I will need cratefuls of these things...literally!

    A series of updates here. I have finished building the Boomgun version of the Looted Wagon(and it's crew) and shot it with gray primer. Attached here are views from different angles.

    Here we have a shot of my Boomgun Shells, plus some of the krew. Of special note is the sophisticated targeting system used by the Spotter.






    The last pic is of the Boombgun assembly removed. You can see an already fired Boomgun Shell lying of the platform near the Grot covering it's ears. I have removed the Boomgun Assembly in preparation for....the transformation!
