Enter the Green (?) Horde!! - An Ork Commission

Recommended Posts

Taylor    88

Hi guys,

I recently took on a HUGE ork commission for a client. I'll be putting stuff here and in the monthly challenge thread. 

The commission consists of the following:

110x Orks with Various Weapons

6x Killah Kans 

6x Deff Koptas

1x Deff Dredd 

1x Ork Warboss

My client doesn't want green orks. He wants them to have bluish grey skin - something I've been wanting to try anyway. He would like them to have battered orange armour - so I'm working under that condition as well. So far, I've started on the war boss to test the scheme, and this is what I've done in the past couple of hours.

I wanted to get a general feel of how you guys like it. I'm gonna be highlighting the armour and damaging the edges. 

Let me know what you think.

That looks great for just a short time. In that light, the skin looks more greyish green than blue, but might look different in person? I personally am partial to yellowish-green-brown ork skin myself.

Yeah. The phone trends colour differently than my old one. I haven't fiddled with it yet. 😁

Doesn't really matter. Client loves it, so that's the scheme. It's Vallejo heavy blue-grey base, with a blue wash, then highlighted with blue-grey again, and given a "light grey wash" of watered down black ink.

I like the rust of the armour.

Not sure I like the Grey skin though. Orks are supposed to be green IMO.

 

Just my 2 cents.

My man Durotan would like to have a word with you.

OK, Caucasian is another colour that would be suitable if in the Warcraft world.

But like @Taylor said maybe the Grey is an albino race of them. 

Just not my first choice for the GreenSkinz of 40K.

I'm with @Dasjuice, love the rusty orange armor, not a fan of the grey, or albino orks.  Orks is green!  But hey, if the client likes them, then he/she likes them, not gonna tell them how to have their army painted.  Nice job Taylor!

Thanks. I added a diffuser to my photo station.

I think it improved the model. What do you guys think?
