Is it me? or does your paint look oily? what type of paint do you use, and do you thin it?

Looks like a Retro Ork...goes well with your Eldar. Some of the Rogue Trader period Orks had that feel to them. I like the yellowed fangs/teeth effect. Are you going to keep the glossy finish or hit it up with a matte spray? Keep up the GOOD WORK, Amigo!

Hi Paluke

First of all i'd like to know how much experience you've had painting before, and particulary experience of painting orks.

Are you going for an evil suns/speed freak army? Was just thinking of the red theme.

Anyway, some fast tips: I'd use black primer over white on orks. I think it works better with the general colors used on them.

Have you used any washes/inks on this mini (or other), they work wonders.

Drybrush ork skin from a darker green to the light shade you wish.

A nice ork boy it is anyway. keep it up

Thanks Deaf and Imbued!

@ Deaf, don't know if i;m going for a matt finish.. the glossy one from the army painter has a nice vintage look and may be better for this paintstyle Smile but i will consider it, thanks thumbsup

@imbued84 i'm going for an infantry horde (mostly) therefor i had to make a choice. i chose a simple painting scheme and with using white the skin gets a better shading (imo). I didn't aim for anything else than tabletop quality because i will be needing something like 120 models for a standard 1500 pnt army (if not more!)

and yes i have a lot of experience, my recent paintjobs before this you can see here

There's nothing wrong with doing the minis with a gloss finish. It gives them a toy soldier like feel, which is rather charming; AND a gloss finish is MUCH more durable for gaming pieces. The deciding factor is whether YOU like them that way...you are, afterall, the ONLY one whose opinion matters on this subject.
