Aeronautica Imperialis: Ork Ground Assets (Orctober ’19)

Aeronautica Imperialis Ork Ground Assets

And here’s the other half of the AI Ground Assets box, to go alongside (against!) the Imperials from a week or so ago. These ones didn’t get hit by the Contrast paints, instead they had a much more traditional method of painting.

Pretty simple really, spray black, spray dark metal, drybrush lighter metal, black wash, brown wash, rust wash. Pick out some bits in different metals and the odd greenish wash where applicable. Then pick out panels in bone, highlight them by streaking over with an off-white, carefully applied(!) rust wash to stain the white panels, then a streaky drybrush of silver. Done!

I went with the white/bone rather than a red or different colour as it fits in more with the desert-y schemes I’ve used for my Orks to date, and a bit of a dual Rynn’s World/Armageddon connection that I plan to expand on further with my models.

As far as me completing a new box set of new figures, I should point out that there’s still two sets of tokens (14 in total, I think) that are lagged out at the moment, and I think I’ve even lost one. So no fear on me completyely completing an entire new kit/box too quickly! 😉

Once I (find and) complete them, I’ll do the full box set group shot. Otherwise they might just end up in the monthly round-up. When I get to it, that is.. I still haven’t done my own for the last couple of months..
