Default Ork Boyz - WIP

Hey folks - just wanted to share a (admittedly not great) WIP shot of my orks to get some feedback on the skin tones. I'm going for "not overly bright green and not overly dark, somewhat natural tones". These, being Boyz, are being painted to look good for gaming because I need like 40-50 of them and dont want to take forever painting them They are deathskullz, so they will have blue warpaint soon (but not entire faces blue, prefer just smaller tattoos).

PS - they aren't quite done - some more highlites to be done but nothing super extensive.

Skin looks great. I cant fault it. Natural and crisp. Well done. The metals, cloths and leathers are great as well. The only thing i don't like is the Shoes, they just don't seem to fit.

Thanks! Yeah those are Fenris Grey and maybe weren't the best choice. However, once they have their blue warpaint the shoes may feel like they fit better (so to speak).

Yeah I love the way the skin looks, and thier eyes are painted quite well. The ork in the back is my favorite with his face high in the sky.

Funny you should say that - he's the guy I consider their "special cousin". I tried to give him a head from the warbiker frame (to mix things up) and ended up giving him the Nob head by accident, so his head is a bit large for his body

Spectacular work on the skin I absolutely love it. As for the shoes well I'm sure once he does the blue warpaint they will fit perfectly fine.

The skin is done nicely.
clothing and metal looks good. only the metal on the guy to the right ( with the heavy weapon ) is kinda to flashy.

Lovely stuff, rough and ready, exactly like an Ork should be!

The poses are nice. The Ork with the PowerKlaw is brilliantly posed, complete with offensive hand gesture .
