ORKS: Skabgutz' Lads
So, finally something new to show off!
Despite actually not really going into detail and adding highlights, I do think they have come out quite well. This only serves to reinforce my opinion that the current GW washes are amazing.
I am happy with the camo work on a couple of the helmets, though I'm most happy with the red beret.
Now, what comes next? Well, thats the question. I will be working a little on a unit of 25 Dwarf Warriors, but they won't be anything special either, again, another paint and wash job really. I also have to start work on 20 Ork Shoota Boyz, but again, nothing special, as I hope to chern them out for a 1k tourney soon.
But all this paint and wash work is starting to leave me with a bit of a sour taste in my mouth, I have to admit. While I think its a good way to hash out models, (And for me, as a slow painter anyway, anything helps) its not exactly helping me grow as a painter much, and I feel that I'm starting to grow rusty in some areas like high-lighting and what have you. Its not actually a way to learn new skills. So, I'll be also picking out a sinlge model of mine that I've had for sometime, and I will work on that too, but this won't just be a simple paint 'n wash, I'll use highlights and such too, and well, we'll see what I can come up with. :D
