Short on the tail of Mr Holmes last time, I've now finished work on the Ork I've been painting recently. So it's time to share the final photos of him on here before I pass him over to my client (my girlfriend), and be adding him to the gallery within the next few days - I'll post the link here when I have. I'm really pleased with how he's turned out, given that he's the first Ork I've painted in quite a while!
I thought I'd put the picture of the Ork first this time - he hasn't had much time in the spotlight recently. I've finished painting the yellow on him this week, and I'm relatively pleased with the results. The yellow's still not perfect, but it's better than many of my previous attempts. I'm now onto painting the metal areas, which I think should probably be quite dark and rusty, before finishing off the final details (and handing him over to my girlfriend Jas of course).
Again this week I haven't had much time to work on my models, but I have managed to get a little bit of painting done. As you can see, I've now basecoated the yellow armour on the Ork that I'm currently working one, I've decided to paint him as a Bad Moon because 1) I like the colour yellow, and 2) I could do with some practice at painting it.
Completely by accident, it seems that I've started painting an old Ork model just as the new Orks are released. And when I say old I mean it, this model is around the same age as I am! I'm painting this model for my girlfriend Jas as I said I'd paint here a model, and she rather likes this one. As for the painting, I'm following an 'Eavy Metal Masterclass that was first published in White Dwarf 351 which shows how to paint a Bad Moons Warboss.
My name is Chris Nelson, I'm a hobbyist. I started around eight years ago with Lord of the Rings as my first system, however I prefer painting to gaming.
