Welcome back my friends! Bonjour mes amis! Recently returned from a vacation in Paris just in time for Orktober. Thought I'd share my last few models with you!
First off, while doing research on Paris, I met a local online Vermenarque who gave us a ton of tips and advice. We met up with him and had a few drinks at a lovely cafe, and I gave him the first international Trust in Rust ambassador (as much as an ork can be an ambassador!).
He also did a bit of sight seeing. The best part about this? Vermenarque's own orks were based on US cowboys....I can't make this up! Worked out so nicely!
I also was able to finish up a deathskulls warboss. Always liked this metal mini, and finally got one of my own. I've gotten a lot better painting metal, I finally figured out to just varnish it a whole lot :).
I did experiment painting some triangles on the gun to break up the blue, but couldn't quite get them to look right. Will keep practicing. My freehand checks slowly get better every time. Of course I'm not trying to make them perfect, as they'd never be perfect on an ork, just less messy :).
These guys are next up in the queue. Decided to go with the shotgun approach to preparing for a new codex. Just build every unit your army can possibly take :). Plus these models are cool as hell! Also got some more kill team terrain to paint up. Been making oil washes for those as practice (Thanks Todd!). Should have a post on those when they are all done. Paris was also so wonderful. Bit of a toss up whether I like it better then Rome. Have to keep traveling to find out which place I like best! Spain is next year! Hope you are all having a good Orktober!
