    Thanks :) I think the little bit of crimson wash around their faces, hands and feet really brings them to life.

    I love your creativity in using wash colors I’d never have thought to use, like the use of green and red washes in your orcs here. I’ve had mixed to poor success using an airbrush so far, but seeing your work makes me want to take another crack at it.

    Thank you and thanks for the like bomb :) I have 30 more Orruks lined up for painting so in an attempt to speed things up I'm going to try mixing some crimson and green oil paints together for an oil wash. I did some precise GW washes for the test group of Arrowboyz but I want to find a faster method. :)

    Getting started on my Boars! I was going to finish my Arrowboyz but I'm not sure if I will actually continue to use them in my list. I love my Boarboys though so I want to get them painted. Initial airbrush work on Boar's body. 4-5 types of browns, faded to black. I'll do the base coats for the face with airbrush, seal it, then do some washes and dry brushing. Thinking i'll do some black hair at the top to balance it out.

    You shold definitely give it another go. The biggest hurdle is learning to thin your paints and knowing how to keep it clean during use. Once you master those 2 things it's a breeze!

    Slowly working on my boars. Black on top and on the bottom. The black will look better when he is based.

    Shiny!

    Do you plan to matte varnish or drybrush him at the end of the process?
