Default Forgeworld Ork Skwadron Kommander


Been sometime since I paint some 40k Orks.

Here's a go at this beautiful Forgeworld Ork Skwadron Kommander. It was a real fun mini to paint, full of details and character. I gave this Ork ''Da Goldun Six Shoota'' and a special 'konfederate' flag on his back.

The base was made using brass etchings from the new Citadel Basing Kit.

Wow. That's amazing, bud. I don't know how you get the texture like that.

OMG, that`s just... great!

You know, I should probably stop looking at your threads. Every time I see one of your figs, I don`t want to touch my brush anymore*

Cheers,

PS: Maybe you should do a paining tutorial or two. Would be rgeat to see how a pro does things.

PPS: What is this mini? I haven?t found it on the FW-Ork page...

Cheers,

It's a Limited Edition Forgeworld model. I'm thinking of getting that Imperial Pilot too.

I've made some tutorial on this particular Ork skin technique, it's posted on the tutorials section here in Tau Online.

Found and bookmarked; it`s better and easier than the official GW one! Thanks, Komrad, tis`ll come in handy when I paint my Gunz Workshop Boyz... ;D

There`s no chance to still order this Ork pilot, now, isn`t there?

Cheers,

Thats a great showpiece there Komrad I really love it, especially the way you do the ork skin "beautiful". The only comment I'd have is that the purple straps look a bit weird, they clash with the other colors of the model. The phone looks a bit bland too, it could use a bit of color to grab more attention to it. But then why should you listen to me, I can't paint that well :P. The golden gun and confederate flag were a really nice touch, very characterful and sets this ork out as a leader.

Hmm you made some good points, like the blandness of the phone/walkie talkie.

It's available at Games Day, if you can't find it ebay is your best choice.
