They still need to be based, but these are the first three models I've painted in about 6 years I believe haha. Red and yellow hats are just regular Boyz and Grimgor I use as my Boss.

Nice start! These guys will look great with a wash of dark brown or black to bring out the recesses in their design.

In agreement here! You're off to a good start, but some washing would really bring out the sculpting. Also, go for a careful lighter green drybrush on the skin - it will do wonders, try on one of them, you won't regret it!

VERY NICE! I like your color choices...excellent contrast with the green flesh. Keep up the GOOD WORK! thumbsup

The photos look ace. Sometimes H.D. pics only serve to highlight every little flaw that otherwise would go unnoticed. clown

Thank you for the compliments and advice everybody, at the moment I'm kinda working with what paints I have, which aren't many haha. So washes are currently out, and certain colors I only have one variant of, so I can't do much with it. But I will hopefully be picking up some new paints so I can make it a bit more varied, and do some washes. Also planning on doing some classes at the local Bunker, since they're going to be running some. So I can actually learn how to do proper highlights, shades, layers, washes, etc. Will update the thread when I do some more painting.

Time for an update, gave my Warboss a wash of Devlan Mud (the first one I've ever done, so be kind haha), and got one of my Big'uns basecoated, still have to do a little touching up before I give him a wash though.

I can't critique the Devlan Mud wash: re, I've never tried the stuff: SO I'm clueless as to what the effect should look like. That aside, the minis are LOOKIN' GOOD. Keep up the FINE WORK! thumbsup

Thank you guys for the comments, and the colors turn out surprisingly well seeing as how I kinda just pick random colors for all the clothing. I want them to have a mixed and matched look to them, orcs don't color coordinate with each other after all. Laughing Except the Warboss, wanted him to have a pretty normal color set, he's a little more organized and together than the rest of the Boyz.

And slowly but surely I'm getting the warband done haha. Three completed, sans base of course, (I'll have pictures of the two Boyz I just finished washing after they dry), one needs a wash, one still needs the rest of his basecoat, and 8 that are only primed. So I got a ways to go with how slow I paint haha. And I'm a big fan of the Devlan Mud wash, the only downside is it smells really, really bad for some reason.

Looks great! Devlan Mud/Agrax Earthshade is probably the best universal wash available from GW. Once you get the basecoat finished, give the whole thing a good heavy coat of the stuff, and let it dry. The recesses look much more defined, and after a quick drybrush to get the highlights, you are good to go!

Thank you Deaf, the basecoat on the Big'un, and the wash on the Warboss were actually done yesterday. Today I was lazy and just did the washes on the Boyz, a little touchup on the basecoat for the Big'un, then washed him haha.

I know you've all been holding your breath for the next update Due to some losses the last few weeks I'm down to 11 Greenskins in my warband, and I'm now done (minus bases, still need to pickup some Elmer's glue or something to get that done) with 7 of 'em.

First up is 'Ardhead, one of my Big'uns, and probably the only ginger Orc in existence haha.





And my two lonely gobbos, hopefully this coming Monday will go well and I can pickup some more, I need more meatshields for my proper Greenskins.




And since I had them out, a shot of all my guys together. You can see the non-painted ones chilling in the shame corner, where they can be seen just enough to make them feel bad, and I suppose by extension, me as well, so they'll be done hopefully soon haha.

LOOKIN' GOOD! The lads are coming along very nicely. I especially like the gobbos, but I've always had a soft spot for the little buggers... Can't wait to see more.

The Lads in Green are coming along VERY NICELY. I like the saffron/yellow robes on the Goblins...have you noticed the Little Guys look nastier than the earlier plastic ones? AND I like the ginger/orange coif on the Big Un...it's my favorite Orc hair color. Keep 'em coming! thumbsup
