Bad Moon Orks: Ork Warboss
I'm back to show you my Bad Moon Ork Warboss which belongs to my newly started Ork army for 30K and 40K.
I have always wanted to start an Ork army and I had actually began to paint a Goff force just before I joined the bunnies a few years ago. These models have formed the beginnings of my new Bad Moons army, so some were partially painted which has helped me get the army off to a swift start. This however does not mean I have given up on my Eldar project, which will continue after I have a decent and playable chunk of the Ork army completed!
So first model I have to show you is Warboss Gorzod of the Bad Moons (He will be based properly soon!)
The idea behind the Ork army is that it will be more of a table top standard army painting wise, as I can get them painted a lot quicker than I can my Eldar. I also don't need to concentrate as much on the layering and highlighting as I am using extensive battle damage across the army.
I have used sponging to be able to apply Doombull Brown and then a smaller amount of leadbelcher across the yellow armour.
I have then also been trialing a new way of painting Ork skin which has been layered up from a base of Elysian Green compared to Warboss Green that I have used in the past. I am also currently deciding what basing scheme to go with.
I'm hoping the yellow scheme will look quite striking on the table, but I also wanted to use the battle damage to keep the feel of Orks being a dirty and constantly warring race, so they shouldn't have pristine looking yellow armour.
As for the rest of the force I have almost completed an Ork Trukk, a squad of 10 Ork boyz and a Killa Kan with 20 storm boyz on order!
Just another quick post from me, I will look at doing some more Ork posts about lists and tactics in the future as well as showing you the units I manage to complete in the coming weeks and months!
So I hope you like the first bad moon to arrive on the blog and thanks again for reading,
