Default Army Resale Project - 24 Slugga Boyz









Obviously, they are all going to need a coat of matte spray varnish, but I assume this will be done after basing anyway.

Overall they look really good. They do look a bit glossy but I'm sure the matte varnish will take care of that. I personally like a lighter green for Orks but I realize its for the KJ army and there is a theme to stick to. Bonus points for drilling the gun barrels.

Yeah. The gloss is actually the remnant of the inks. I used a green ink on the skin and a watered-down brown ink on everything else. But normal GW varnish gets rid of that completely, since it is also what I do with my Deathwing.

I just bought some Testors Dull Cote, I'm kind of anxious to see how it turns out. It's supposed to be some of the best available but is fairly expensive. I usually steer clear of most GW hobby products other than the paints, which I think are some of the best acrylics available. I'd like to see some updated pics once they're based and get the varnish, if you've got the time to post them.

That will be after IVEATCH gets them, so I will have to rely on him to take the pictures. The plan is for one person to do all of the basing, and I assume varnish after that, since I always use a coat of varnish after that to make sure all the basing material is well and truly fixed.

I see, well I'm glad this project is getting along. I think its a great thing that it was organized and that people followed through. I saw some of what BF had done before he had to leave us and it looked amazing. I think this army will be an awesome sight once all the pieces are gathered together.
