NOCF 2016 Ork Charity Army - It's not easy being green...

...But it's getting easier!

Few more steps on the Ork skin last night - nothing glamorous but it's actually been rather fun!

The first stage was to paint in the flesh again with Warboss Green, followed by a mix of Warboss Green and Nurgling Green, hitting successively less of the area with each pass and leaving the darkest green in the recesses.

Next up is a highlight of pure Nurgling Green on the uppermost surfaces of the skin where it would catch the light.

The last step of the evening is a pass of Waywatcher Green glaze to help blend the layers together. Much like the final step Monday night, the glaze really needs to dry thoroughly so the models are left to dry overnight. Moving right along!

In addition to the Ork and Space Marine armies that will be raffled off later in the year, there are already a couple forces up on the NOVA Open Charitable Foundation site, both painted by the phenomenally talented Dave Taylor - Definitely worth a look, and it's for a great cause!


  1. I thought red ones went faster, not green? Strong play man.

  2. Lots more going into this than I had imagined.

  3. Blink of an eye = new army painted. Looking good so far

  4. So great to see you painting orks!!! Skin looks great!

  5. @Rory Priest: Haha! Thanks!

    @Dai: Aye, it's a bit of a complex paint guide they provided, trying to follow it as best I can!

    @Zab: Indeed! Will have to paint some Imperials soon to wash away the taint!

    @Manus: Hah! You know me too well!

    @Greg Hess: Thanks man! Has been a lot of fun so far!

    Cheers, everyone!
