Great lookin model mate! Wow, I think that is the first time I have ever seen a Boy with the actual weapon, and not a converted version of a big shoota

Yep, looks good, but the right arm looks a little awkward.

Thanks for the comments! I agree his arm does bend weird, but that's all GW's fault. Of course being an Ork mini it was probably sculpted 10 years ago or so I just didn't feel like chopping him up, what with the laziness and all.

The reason is because no one want to buy the ugliest ork model (from the current range) existing.

Even so, good work on painting the suckah!

Lol, that's for sure. I'm glad I didn't spend any money on him, he was a birthday present

He sat around long enough without a good paint job so I figured I'd finish him.

His left arm looks so incredibly akward. IF he acutally has to put his arm that far back... why don't you just put the gun a little further away from you so you don't bend the arm away :

I really like your red tough, good contrast between the shades and highlights!

I think this is a good place to say this, finally:

For Da WAAAAAAAAGGGHHHH!

I love the model itself. Though you could maybe stress a few more highlights.
