    Thanks very much guys!
    All the makings are freehand, been trying to push myself a bit. I found tho that a decent brush helps immensely with both freehand and with the highlighting, can get really sharp edge highlights.
    I recently picked up WN series 7 and I think it's really helped to push my painting up a notch.

    Thanks man, glad you like the BB team, I had fun painting them.

    The power sword is far from finished, I was trying to copy one from codex SM, a salamander captain had a cool purple PS.
    I worked it up from a white undercoat, with enchanted and regal blue, fading to black.
    It needs a lot of work still. I'll post more pics when I've done some more on him.


    Oh, and my Goblin team sold! Got 212 for them! I was a bit gobsmacked!
    Wanna do more BB stuff now!

    Sorry no pics, not done much painting. Been cleaning/assembling stuff. Should really knuckle down to some painting tho!

    Thanks for listening to me waffle on & thanks for the kind words!

    Well, trying to keep the momentum going, so here's a small update.

    WIP of Gotrek,


    Not been able to get motivated with this one, but trying to just get on with it.
    Need to start highlighting now.

    Been workin on some Black Reach Nobs as well,



    The one on the left is further along, nearly finished actually, just some of the small details to do, chips and freehand stuff etc.
    Trying to get these done relatively quickly (I paint slow, but find orks a bit quicker) and stick em on ebay. Can't wait till my collection is a much more manageable size!

    Anyway, thanks for looking!
    Thoughts & opinions be very much appreciated!

    That's some of the best Ork skin I've seen done BoyMilla. Very nice indeed.

    Thanks for the tip on the paintbrushes, I'll look into them.

    Also, listening to Immortal and reading Chaos fluff is an excellent combination.

    as always, lovely stuff bro. will you ebay felix + gotrek as a set?

    Orks look nice too, will have to sort out a game some time! (all my SM together are at 1,100 pts at mo)

    still think you should put the Black Consuls stuff over on B+C, think get more input on them (no offence to all at warseer intended!)

    hi BM!
    your scult of Gotrek is much more interesting than mine those orc nobs look ok, I suggest more highlight on the skin, but I don`t know if it will help on ebay :P

    Lots of nice stuff here. I really like the Goblins and the Felix fig looks great! I really like the way the cape and pants turned out.

    Thanks everyone for comments!

    @Lysimachus, hey bro, glad you finally signed up! Welcome to warseer!
    Yeah, will sell Felix and Gotrek together. S'pose I'll have to finish Gotrek

    I will put the marines up on B&C, but I'll probably wait until some of my other stuff is finished so I can focus more on them and do regular updates!

    @sea.man, I think this version of F&G were internet/direct only (could be wrong!), they were released around the same time as 5th ed WH (think it was 5th, the one with empire/orcs in the box). I like the models you have tho, got a more classic feel!

    Ork skin looks better IRL, again bad photos!
    I've ordered some daylight bulbs so hopefully my pics will improve.

    Lovely stuff you've been getting on with mate, those marines look crisp. Good work on the Goblin team too - they look lovely, someone has a good team to play with there. Keep going on Gotrek he's looking good so far!

    Re: BoyMilla's log of this and that!

    Well, update time again!

    My new bulbs came, so hopefully better pics! Still need to sort out decent lamps to put them in and maybe a light box or reflectors of some kind, but the shots I've taken so far are already much better,
    anyway see what you think!

    Black Reach Nobs



    The one on the left is finished, I'm gonna varnish him so I'm not tempted to fuss with it anymore. The one on the right is nearly there too!

    The rest are not far behind, skins about done, just some detail work etc



    Hopefully have em done by next weekend, then I'll start some boyz!

    Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking!

    Hey, you got in quick while I was updating! Thanks for the kind words!
    I'm glad the goblin team's gone to a good home, I never have time to game so be nice if they see a bit of field time!

    Thanks,

    Great-looking stuff you've got there. I really like Felix, nice cloak and great blue stripes! The green skin on the orks is very vibrant too. Keep it up!

    Really nice stuff! I can't fault anything here it's all really great!

    The blood bowl teams are my favourite though, they look fantastic!

    Thanks guys! I'm glad you like the skin! I generally paint my orks as Goffs, so I like the skin to stand out and leave almost everything else black or brown.

    I'm pretty pleased with how they're looking, hopefully won't take long to finish now that the skin's done!

    Thanks for your comments everyone!

    Fantastic looking log so far, quick question for you though. what's the recipe for the green?

    Thanks man, no problem.
    Base: orkhide shade,
    1st highlight: knarloc green,
    2nd highlight: goblin green,
    3rd highlight: goblin green+golden yellow (about 75%, 25%),
    4th highlight: goblin green+bleached bone (about 50, 50)

    I apply the highlights leaving last colour showing in recesses. With highlight 3 and 4 I apply it in lines along the muscle. If I overdo it with the highlights I use thraka green wash to tone it down.
    Normally, when painting boyz I miss off highlight 3 for speed.

    Hope this helps!

    Sorry, no pics, but an update!

    The Nobs are finished! Yay, right on schedule! Just got to varnish them now.
    I'll try and take some pics later today if I get time.

    Start on the boyz then, hopefully 2-3 weeks should see them done.

    Had a spare moment so...

    Group shot,



    And rear,



    And (cos I can have 4 pics) my 2 favourites,



    Pleased with how they've turned out. They've not taken me too long as well so quite happy.

    Hope you enjoy looking! Please feel free to comment!

    Brilliant! They look really badass. And I can't tell they're varnished - what brand of varnish do you use?

    The muscles on them Orks look SICK! Really nice. Are they going to be Goffs?
