WAAAAGH! Pt.11: 40k Ork Slugga Boyz – Autumn Platenenmuster Style #2

Warhammer 40k Ork Slugga Boyz

So here’s the next trio of Orks. As I stated in the previous Ork-Post, I wasn’t entirely satisfied with how the Autumn Platenenmuster camo from the video guide came out, and while I was poking around the internets, I found another method detailed on Warlord Games’ site, which provided me with the basis for what you see here.

I haven’t attempted to minimise the size of the dots in the camo pattern here – instead going for a slightly larger size that suits these particular models.

Quite different, as you can see in this comparison shot – and distinct enough so that I can use both on my Ork force going forward in order to keep up that variety of camo patterns across their “uniforms”. This leaves me with only 7 more Orks left to go from this 500 (or 600?) point combat patrol force that I started in 2005. Two Rokkits, one Big Shoota, two Nobz and a Warboss. Plus a squig, and a whole lotta grots. The grots are well on their way, but need to be rebased to match the Orks… (groan!)

  1. Have you ever used Andrea Paints? Right now there are multiple types of Cameo sets including Andrea Color Waffen SS Camo Paint Set (Spring Colors) among others. I’ve used their paint for years. Good stuff but I can’t speak for the Camo paint sets as I’ve fallen behind in my collection of them.

    • I haven’t trued/Used Andrea paints, or Scale 75 at this stage. I use a mixture of Citadel (old and current), Vallejo Game and Model Colour (and Panzer Aces), Vallejo Game and Model Air, P3 (Privateer Press), Coat D’Arms, Reaper Master System, Reaper HD, Army Painter, Warpaints, occasionally Tamiya Metallics and some AK Interactive acrylics. Within that, I’ve got favourites for different colours, for different coverage and so on. If I ever see Andrea from any of my usual sources, I might check them out (unless they seem to have issues that would turn me off them, like the Scale 75s.) Cheers!
