Painting Steps - GD2008 Orc Warboss


OK, I realised a few weeks ago that I have a notebook (or three) that I am constantly writing my paint recipes in, but never doing anything further with them. The only time I do use them is to reference colours I used to reuse a combination, but I also run the risk of not being able to understand my handwriting after a few years. My resolution was to start typing them all up for future use. I also realised I could recycle them into blog posts to show how I did things.

I figured that I would start with the Orc Warboss that was given out at Golden Demon in 2007, and I painted up for 2008. The model is a favourite of mine for several reasons: I'm a former Orc general, so this model had instant appeal to me. It was the first model I ever painted specifically aiming for it to be a display model. It's also currently my highest rated mini on CMON.

So here we go, on with the painting:
