Sweet! Any tips for my friend here? He just got started and also plays Orks. He's doing a good job of painting, but he paints very crisp and clear. How do you get those highlights, for example? They don't look like they can all be achieved by just drybrushing.
Metallic grey spray as base coat layers of rust wash layers of cool-darkish-greenish-gray wash :-p that's just a mixture of leftover paints and water. with dish washing soap added to get rid of water's surfece tension >_> just research how to create washes from water based paints from the net. layers of red wash layers of darker red wash (same red with veeery little black and a little copper tone added) highlighting wider surfaces with red paint. not washing. this is normal painting. painting details drybrushing edges with a silver color. i use tamiya weathering master sets. it makes the job that much easier.
MUCH more orky than the purely metal version. Well done, I like.
There was a WD tutorial on doing Mannfred von Carstein of the Vampire Counts that was posted in the archive on the Games Workshop sight - if you're trying to do the teef on that dred like tusks, I suggest you look at that tutorial because the results are phenomenal.
Other than adding some details like construction stripes and orky black&white checks, I'd call this suck ready fer stompin'
