I do like the style on the blue and the rusty metal effect is top notch. The shading and highlighting on the skin looks awesome. My only thing, and I know he's a Deffskull, but it just seems like too much blue going on. I feel as though you should be showcasing how nicely that blue skin came out, but with so much blue elsewhere, it just detracts from the skin and everything blends together.

I agree with Thor.

The blue is really great and I love how you did it, but the blue skin doesn't look right with all the other blue stuff.

What can I say I love the blue. Like Thor said though its the blue skin that standouts but the rest of the blue does take away. However if I were to repaint the blue metal not sure what colour I would do them as. I will change the screw from blue to red. The blade on the choppa wrench not sure, and the little nuts and such not sure either. I could make the KFF blue metal all purple metal. But thing that i do know forsure is that the skin will stay blue.

After mulling about the model a bit I think the KFF is what the problem is. It doesn;t pop and it conflicts with the blue. The minior nuts, the blade on his wrench and the blue on his boots are all away from his skin and have the complimenting orange between the two. The Screwdriver is on top of a blue chain so I will paint the screwdriver handle red. Now what colour should the KFF conductors be? Purple is what I'm leaning towards but would like some input first. If I do paint them purple I will paint the purple cable red. I'm trying not to introduce too many colours but I am open to any ideas.

No don't change it. I love what youve done with it.

IMO, it's an awesome, original paintjob! Really sweet! You have a really interesting way of doing the blue color, and I think that a whole army of these gents would be an extremely original looking army.

As long as there is something green on some of the boys, non? A whole army of these guys would look luminiscient - you know... in a little too ork rave party going on way.

Remember Orks are plants and some plants are pink, some are blue, some are red but in the end it's all up to you.

So Thor what do you think of me painting the atenneas red blending into a brigh orange on the nodes themselves?

I think it would help break it up some. Maybe also do the cables a different color than the purple to break up the KFF a bit more.

ya, but most plants are green, and the plant called "ork" is green.

But its up to you. I thought it was extensive warpaint. Looks good either how!

I will paint the some of the cable red and the KFF antenna and nodes oranges/slivers to break up the color more thus allowing the skin to pop. Thanks for the help Thor.
