I’ve done a lot of tedious painting on him.  My lack of skill is showing some with this model but I’m still mostly happy with how it came out.   I’m trying to decide how I want to paint his weapon so the hand is not done yet.  The head needs some more cleanup before I attach it.  It will probably get added tomorrow night.



I also need to invest in a whitebox and dig out my real camera.  The lighting and webcam aren’t playing along well with macro photography. :p



After playing with this I’ve decided I’m definitely going to prime in black and paint up from there.   As you can see it makes it much faster to get a semi-decent looking boy than the greenskin primer did. Neither is anywhere near finished at this point but the boy looks a lot better than the nob in my opinion.   I have to pained every detail of the nob whereas black works as a default color on the boy really well.  See the boots and the unpainted leather straps on the boy for an example of what I’m talking about.

This has also solidified that I have no intention of running an orc army beyond this 420 points that came with Black Reach.  I’m not enjoying these guys like I do the necrons.
