Orktober 2017 #5/WAAAAGH! Pt.8: 40k Ork Slugga Boyz.

Warhammer 40k Ork Slugga Boyz

Three more Slugga Boyz again today. I literally finished these off yesterday, so I bumped them up in the blog post queue so I could “Orktober” them. (I’ve gone from having not much to show to a backlog of stuff to show again.) Not much to write here that I haven’t already said before. A mix of 40k and Fantasy bits used again, as well as muted palette and camo schemes.

Warhammer 40k Ork Slugga Boyz

Our leftmost Ork wears UK Desert DPM, the middle one wears an AUSCAM top with a made-up camo on his pants, and the third Ork has that same made-up camo on his top and a different made-up camo for his pants. Both of the “made-up” camo schemes are (loosely) based on the Yugoslav variant of the “puzzle” pattern of camouflage – though both with 3-colours and my own arid-themed palettes.

  1. Nice work on the camo – I know you say it’s not as hard as people think but having tried it myself a few times it’s certainly a challenging technique to master (I know I still struggle with it).

    • I guess a better way to describe it than “it’s not that hard” (I guess that can sound dickish, which isn’t my intent at all) is that some patterns are a lot easier than others. British Desert DPM (as seen above) for example is pretty simple, while Auscam and Woodland are harder, choc-chip is a lot of work and Multicam/MTP is a right pain and digital is really painful.

      I guess the nice thing about camo is that you can start with simpler patterns that still look quite good and then ramp up the complexity at a pace that suits the individual.
