Finished! Galleon

I finally mustered up the courage to photograph my Galleon for the judgement of the internet. This is the piece that won me the Grandmaster title at this year's P3 contest at Gencon. Appartenly I have a violent way of celebrating. As one onlooker, having witnessed my win from afar, wasn't sure if I was happy or angry. Spiking your drink on the floor, doing air karate, and shouting what the fuck?! Holy Shit?! is a little misleading. But to those of the wulfen blood recognize the spasms of triumph.

I didn't bother chopping these images down in photoshop but check him out full size 'ere

Finished! Shokk Attack Gun

This bad boy rounds out the four Ork Characters I've been blogging about lately. Definitely a cooolmini, one of the few that still captures that second edition feeling. Splatta kannons, pulsa rokkits, squig catapults, telescopic legs, that kind of Orkiness.

Finshed! Ghazghul Mag Uruk Thraka

But with a little Deathskull flavor thrown in :) Hitting like a truck, here he comes, the big bad booty daddy of Space Orks. 

If only the Orks could unite.

Finished! Deathskulls Ork Warboss

Ready to stop some 'umiez. The pain train keeps rolling, this time with the new Warboss in the caboose.

More Orks to come, stay tuned :)

Finished! Ork Painboy

The first of four Characters I was commissioned to paint :)

I'm not the biggest fan of GW's shift to digital sculpting. This model was still fun despite some of the weird bends that occur and the shitty face on the grot. Hah, overall a cool model, I just couldn't get over the grots face.

Stay tuned, more Oddboyz on the way.

Ork HQ's Step 2!

 Here they are coming along after some basecoating. I'm trying to figure out which colors I was to go where and such. I would refer this to the "shit stage". The stage where your models have all the necessary colors in play but with little to no contrast which looks like, yup, shit.

Then I started shading in some of the recessed areas and getting the minis ready for some washes. I also gave the attack squig some heavy petting.

Here they sit today as of this morning. 

I've also been doing a black and gray study with my buddy Tom. I grabbed a three pack of gobber drudges at Gencon and thought they would make fun a fast cool minis. We jammed on them last night between my Ork painting blocks. It was really fun attempting to work with a monochromatic scale and tinker with the values and saturation of it all. I'll have some better pictures of him up soon but until then, here he stands.

Once he has his close up I'm afraid his torture has only begun. I have more experiments to carry out on this mini >:}

Ork HQ's Step One

I love painting me some orks :) What's better is that they're for the same client who bought my ork army. These guy's will be leading my old friends into the fray. 

It started with a little touch and go basing. Hacking, breaking, and biting though the sprues. 

Then some primer and the brush of air.

Next up it was time to start laying down the base colors with some brush work. More on that soon!
