Hello, and welcome to Da Warpath. smile.gif

I can see you have the foundations of a verrr' cool piratey army here, mate! The Merboar is a cool idea. I also really like the handpainted banner.

However, there is always improvement to be done, and for a good step towards perfection I'd suggest using the Citadel Washes. Do you have any? They are just...awesome, really. Instant shading and deepening of any paintjob, providing you use a suitable wash for the right surface. Shadind and deepening of colours seems to be what your army is lacking the most so far, so I warmly reccomend them. Maybe the slight "flatness" of the paintjobs is just the pics though, I don't know.

*Thraka Green, mostly for the skin. It's really good.
*Badab Black, great for shading basically anything. Darker skin, metal, eyesockets and the odd grey/black/even brown bits you'll have on a model gets so much better with a bit of this.
*Devlan Mud, also known as "Talent in a bottle"...says it all really! Works on anything brown-ish, including beiges and bone colours. As well as a lot of different O&G skin colours.

So there, just some small tips. Looking forward to seeing this army develop, everyone loves pirate orcs! wub.gif

Welcome here, mate! and great theme for an army wink.gif I can see that the color is a bit lumpy, so my advice is to water down a bit the color. Three thinned hands of color are better than one thik and lumpy hand wink.gif theo gave you a lot of useful tips, so I have not to much to add wink.gif
Lookin' forward for some proppa pirates! yarr.gif

Hi and wecome.

One suggestion I would say is try and post full size pictures to your blog. People find it easier to view than clicking on the thumbnails.

Ahhh, the dear old chestnut ink! In an old guide by GW the sequence for the orc-ish metal was:
-Black primer
-Tin biz drybrush
.boltgun metal drybrush
-chestnut ink watered down
-higlight with chainmal

Personally I use:
-Black primer
-Rust colour drybrush
-Boltgun metal drybrush
-Badab Black, devlan mud and a bit of thraka green washes. Washes are a bit less heavy than the old inks, and they have not to be watered down
-Higkight with chaimal or mithril silver

Planks with the lines molded on is easy.

Just paint scorched brown and drybrush with:
- Bestial Brown
- Snakebite leather
- Bubonic brown
- Bleached bone

No need to do all of them, just stop when you think it's light enough. I usually do this on war machines where I stop certain part at the snakebite stage and others I highlight further.

For smooth parts the colors are the same, but you have to paint the grain yourself which is a pain in the arse
