Default Warboss Grubsnikka (C&C welcome)

Hello all. This is my miniature on display here and my first Ork. I'm rather happy with him (as I typically paint to a gaming standard) but any comments or criticisms are welcome (so long as you tell me how I can do it better next time).

Thanks,
Em

The metallics on the claw, and the dirty look on the tusks, are painted nicely.

You might want a 2brown/1red ink wash to splash over him for rust.

Painting looks really good... But are those mold lines I see on the tusks?

@AfterCrescent - thanks. The "dirty" look comes from a black wash of Future Floor Wax & acrylic paint. I like the darker, dirtier miniatures. I think they make better "warzone" figures.

@Immortal - thanks, yes, I thought about rust. I actually have a very nice rust color which I drybrush for effect. However, I just couldn't bring myself to rusting up my warboss's shiny armor. Maybe I'll try it though.

@SmellTheAshes - thanks, yes - those are mold lines. I got the bit today and was so excited to finally be able to finish the figure that I didn't sand it. I am actually very bad about that. I didn't notice the line until it was painted. I'll see if I can't feather it out with a highlight.

Mm using Borgut Facebeater's body and the new Ork Warboss sprues eh?

I would say it's definetly Orky, but maybe a ink wash or two to weathered the model and and tidy up the tusk a little.

Nevertheless an 'ard looking boss.

I know the feeling, man; I've done it before too. Apart from that minor gripe, it's an awesome piece.

Looks suitably ORky with the model looking like its gear has never been cleaned. Overall a great model.
