Cataphract's Yello Boyz

Post by Cataphract » Tue Dec 17, 2013 12:08 am

Hi gang, I've been listening to the podcast for the past six months but this is my first post on the forums.

I started painting a new Ork army recently and I've got a little bit painted but I'm keen to finish it off as part of the HPC. Here's what's been painted so far

1 Megaboss
4 MANz
10 Boyz
1 Dakkajet

Image

So that's an additional 360 points that I need to add to the total, which is fine cause I'm going to paint up a big yello stompa!

I'll update soon with the 1k zone mortalis list

I'm not sure. To be honest with you I doubt I'll ever play a zone mortalis game. I just made the list so I have an idea of what I need to paint.

Welcome to the challenge. Those guys look really cool. SAG is one of the few Ork models I don't have. Looking forward to seeing yours.

REALLY LOVE the Bad Moonz but gave up on them because yellow is the devil.

You seem to have a hold on it though lol

I'll let you in on a secret... Army painter desert yellow primer. Image

I prime yellow, put down some base colours and then the rest is washes.

This is the right way to go. Yellow is so hard to paint. My Yeller boyz and bikez all started the same way. It is really tough painting around it, though, that's for sure.

I'm actually finding it a dream. There's so much you can do with washes over a coloured base.

The orks' skin for example is just two layers of green wash over the yellow.
