Decided to do an orky project (along with my many others) here's the start.
Crossed ork boyz with savage orruks.
Ork boyz are on a thin bit of cork sheet to bring their height up to the savage orruks

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Nice! To reduce the risk of feeling overwhelmed of painting up the army as you build it. I strongly suggest that you finish painting that unit before building the next. So now its a good time to decide on colour scheme, fluff background (goffs, evil suns etc) and a basing theme.

That's a pretty sensible idea, I think I'm gonna go with Goff's on a sun blasted desert basing scheme using a crackle texture paint in places, what I'm stuck on is a colour scheme for the skin. I wanna go pretty detailed on these guys as I'm thinking of starting to do some nice narrative battle reports. Particularly something like Glazers creek or ferro giant alphus from white dwarf

Cool, consider doing some carved stones that protrude out of the cracked earth or sands with pin roller and green stuff. I tried the Egyptian pin for a desert basing theme for my deathwatch kill team, check these out:

I never considered using them like that, I might just try it, I'm gonna do what you suggested and get through painting these first, though I do wanna make my warboss and I've got something interesting planned the relevant kits should arrive tomorrow

Bah, don't worry about painting just have Guillermo do it.

 

In the past (I've painted and sold two ork armies..... of course I have a new one now.....) One great thing to do to keep a consistant look is get your skin process down, then write it down. I usually put mine on a post it next to my painting desk (doing that with a nurgle army now)  That way, you can vary you clothes/armoe etc... but the skin will be a binding feature for the look of the army. And definitely, batch painting is a thing.  Personally I like 10 at a time. Do all the skin in one session, all the teeth the next one, the armor...etc.  Looking forward to seeing how this progresses.

That Guillermo he is an idiot, he cannot paint

That is a splendid idea, I'm gonna get a notebook I think to keep all the recipes in.

Your Ork Warboss looks promising. Yes, the claw is oversized, but as an Ork, his aesthetic sense is different from that of humans- what we call "goofy," he calls "AWESOME!!!"

Don't forget to remove the Chaos star from the arm, the Ork's chest, the vambrace on his left forearm. Chaos is NOT "Orky."

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Thanks! I've already removed the left arm vambrace and attached the deff dread arm as an exo-suit arm I also took the daemon prince hand off and put and aos 'ard boyz gauntleted hand there, I plan to green stuff the chaos star on his chest and shave off the star on the claw and add some more orky bits to it

The claw does look a bit goofy, but I don't think it has anything to do with the size, I think it has to do with the number of joints in it. If you were to take out one of the sections (I'm thinking the middle one) I think that would help. It would take some cutting but it doesn't look like you have any issues with chopping up models.

Looks like the first joint was shortened and you added some armor over the shield? That does look a lot better.

Yeah I sawed it in half, it looks a lot more in proportion now I think. I've got the greenstuff world pipes and tube roller thing, I'm gonna use it to connect the extra parts and weapons, should tie it all in nicely. Looking forward to painting him.
