Cheers guys! The hook IS a little big, but I needed it to be - I wouldnt have had enough reach on that arm otherwise. So I stole a sickle from the night goblin box and filed it a little to make it a bit more hook-y.

In the meantime, I finished off the Heroquest models! Hurrah! Now I can focus on my own army

These ones are staying as is, the person they were painted for wanted a fairly generic model for Heroquest games, so he was keen for a plain sheild. They look a little boring without a device on them though, I wish I could have put something on them. I'm keen to make a start on my own now!!

Hey all!

Doing some work on the Savage Orc Chariot, still alot of "savaging" left to do on it, sheilds, bones, all the like. At the moment I'm stuck on the chains. I'm not sure whether to run them all the way back to the chariot and use them as reins, or to just use them as trappings and harness for the boars. I will be changing the attachment on the tusk, its just sitting there so I can get an idea at the moment..

Thoughts would be very welcome!

Good start! I like the chains as they are! I think that them not having reins kind of fits the style...

Personally I'd swap the chains for ropes/vines. Just seems a bit more 'savage'.

Been working on my bosses, and have had trouble finding savage orcs that I actually like. This guy can be either a big boss, or a unit champion if I find something more... big bossy! Basically I've just used a boar boy body, doen some greenstuffing to position the arms (from the big stabba) and stuck him on a flying base. What do you guys think? I want to start painting him up tomorrow, so I'll post some photos as soon as I do!

Ouch! That piece of plastic must hurt! Probably the reason he's frenzied. tongue.gif

Anyway, the model looks great! It reminds me of my (still unpainted) unit filler competition entry. These savage orc models are really fun to work with, and offer some great opportunities for converting.

A bit of painting done this arvo. Obviously still WIP, but tried out a couple of the new paints on this one.

First step was a black primer. Over that was a heavy drybrush of the new Khorne Red. I've only used a couple of the base paints, they seem a little thinner than the old foundations but still cover ok (that said, the light grey didnt cover very well at all). After that I drybrushed Squig Orange. Didnt much like it to be honest, it was more fleshy than red. Odd sort of colour. Then came a light drybrush with Kindleflame. The drybrush paints are pretty cool, but I dont think its anything that you cant achieve with the layer paints, its just less wiping you have to do with your brush. Over the top of all that is a heavy Bloodletter glaze. The effect before the glaze was pretty meh, looked a sort of reddish poo brown (yum!). The glaze brought the red back out, dulled down the extreme highlight on the face, and seemed to add real depth to the skin.

The rest still needs work, want to pick up a few of the new pinks and purples before I finish off the tounge.

Thoughts? I'm thinking purple tounge, I prefer the darker, grittier look. Also thinking about redoing the extreme highlights in orange, to make it a little warmer, the ones that are there now are a little bit too pink...
