So I've decided I wanted my Orcs n Gobs army to be painted but didn't want to spend a whole lot of time on it as it is not my main army.

Tabletop quality, this means when you look at it up close, it ain't so pretty, but for gaming, it should be more than enough (: Better than a plastic & partially primed army!

So here it is, the first unit I painted today, which is a first for me - 1 unit in one day, it usually takes me over a week to finish a unit :[ So its time efficient and the sloppy result isn't so bad!

As you can immediately notice, speckles of white in the deepest reaches of the mini - wash bubbles up instead of flattening in those depths without case-by-case retouch so when it dries up, it was never washed O: But form afar - none can notice it.

Next you can see how some colours washed up on others, happens, I'm not doing any precision work, heh!

I still have some units to assemble, sand up and then prime so ill get right on that!
Bases aren't final, I'll add snow and maybe some grass here and there.

I dunno. Those photos are pretty close, and they don't look bad. I'm guessing it's a white undercoat with the citadel washes over the model?

It looks like while you haven't spent as much time on them as you would other models, you've still done them neatly and with a good colour scheme, which helps a lot when looking at a painted army. At this rate, have you formed an idea of how long it will take to do the army?

Yeah the photos are zoomed in and with the flash, its still somewhat better than some Tabletop quality but its far under what I can do normally o:

I could finish the army rather quick, depends if I run out of Skull White Primer ;P A week or two and I could have it all ready to play o: But I still have some assembly to do as well and removing mold lines is boring and annoying on orc boyz

Now if you went in and did the teeth and claws in an off-white, maybe did a bit more work on the gobbo's robes, you'd have an ever nicer looking unit! Looks like great work though, those washes get some decent results.

For what it's worth, I really hate the way those squigs rank up. (Working on my own herd right now.) The gobbos with the giant prodders aren't exactly ace either.

Mine all fit well together, but there's like only that one configuration I can use lol.
Even one of the prodders is going under 2 squigs because there wasn't any other way to place it.

may i ask weather they are painted using the washes straight out of the post, or mixed? As far as I can tell, Red for bodies, sepia for teeth and feet? Green gobbo skin, black robes. Correct?

Red is always done by first applying Devlan Mud and when its dry Baal red, otherwise it gives a nice pink (: The squigs though were Ogryn Flesh instead of Devlan Mud, and then Baal Red as normal.

But yes its all straigth from the pot, no water, no mixes.
I did put Mithril silver for metal areas before washing em Badab Black.

Just finished my Doom Diver, going to paint 3-4 more figurines today. O:

Need to finish the Shaman's base and then move on to the Chukkas.

I really like that Doom Diva! Do you mind going into some detail as to how you painted it? I've got a primed one sitting unpainted at home for a few years now. I really should get around to it soon.

It was primed Black before I decided to wash it, so I went back outside and primed it white.

From there its simple.. (:

Big ropes, Bucket, Wood: Devlan mud on White Undercoat
Small Ropes: Gryphonne Sepia on White Undercoat
Cables: Badab Black on White Undercoat
Greasy Runway & bucket: Gryphonne Sepia on white Undercoat
Goblins: Thraka Green on White Undercoat
Clothes, Wings: Devlan Mud on White Undercoat -> Baal Red on Devlan Mud layer
Hair: Badab Black on White Undercoat
Metal parts: Mithril Silver on White Undercoat -> Badab Black on Mithril Silver layer

These models are a fantastic show case of what washes can do.

You've selected your colours very well Silver, you should be proud of these quick n dirty wash jobs!

Very cool and much thanks! Did you do more than one coat on any of these?

Also, what about the wood?

Already mentionned the wood, simply Devlan Mud.
The only places that have had 2 layers of Wash are the Reds and sometimes the wood when I do metallic parts near, ill have to wash Badab black on the metal and it easily goes down on the wood so I just do a very minor coat over it to unify it.

I think those models look great. Very unique look, and absolutely tabletop quality. Makes me want to do that to some night goblins to speed up the process.

Can't wait to see some more biggrin.gif
