So I'm starting up a new ork army, going to try to actually keep a plog going to help motivate me. Orks were my first army back when I first got into 40k thirteen years ago, and I tell you it feels good to be painting greenskins again. I started off with a unit of grots to help re-learn how to paint after my five year hiatus. Here are the first nine:
The edges of the bases have been cleaned up since this picture, and afew still need some black and white checks and dags painted here and there but I'm pretty happy with 'em so far.
I love this guy's expression
I'll admit that the one piece grots like this one didn't really inspire me much when it came time to paint, and I felt like the model was looking drab when I was putting the finishing touches on him, so I loaded him up with checks and dags.
And this little grot is just happy to be here.
This little guy is my favorite. I still want to put a checkerboard pattern on the bottom half of his bandana though.
And finally we have this guy. At first I thought that the grot head with the skull tied on top was too rediculous, but then I realized that the problem was it wasn't too rediculous enough!
The last gobbo and the slaver are primed and waiting for me to have a free evening to paint 'em up. I'll take some pictures when they're ready.
