These are the last two I'm going to paint for a short while. I have to finish at least one Ork unit that I set aside.
My thinking about these color schemes on the rest of the army has changed after these crazy characters. I will paint, I think, two more in random colors but I want to pull in a pallet that is easier to work with for most of the rest of the army. so in a way this was like a lot of test colors. I think the bright green, orange, white and yellow are the best of the lot and will probably use those. It's a little less important for single model units who will probably get a few extra colors.
I may decide to do a repaint on this one.
This one got weird. it started with a dark blue coat and grey pants. then I thought I could add a design that looked like brick work in bright blue. for some reason I filled in some of the bricks with red ink then later washed them with another ink. I went back over the out line of the brick design with yellow to try to give an outline.
I like this one but I also don't like this one. clothing is a bit difficult to paint when it's not mostly flat colors.
One of my early thought about all these random clowns was as a single unit, it might confuse my opponent just a bit. I also was worried if I keep this trend of crazy models I would also become confused about which ones are in which units. so I was planning to mark the bases. Now I think I can settle on at least a pallet for each unit so it's more obvious who is in what unit.
Also, less free hand. I need a new detail brush for that and it's a real pain. to look at when it doesn't come out well.
Thanks for looking.
Next post should be Orks - Flash Gitz.
