Ork Weird Boy

So I spent this week working on my Weird Boy for my Ork army.  This model came out of the this box set.  It really fits in with the rest of my army and is just a great looking model. 

Not much to talk about with my painting style on this model.  I used a verity of different painting techniques from wet blending to good old fashion dry brushing.  I did use the rust wash that I talked about in my last post on the metal armor and the brass on the weapon.  I really like how this wash works on metallic colors and it will become part of my regular painting style.   

Now I have 1000 points painted up and ready to roll and I want to get another 1000 points done before the end of the year.  The challenge I have is not having the Ork Codex.  I am building my list based on the Index and feel that this list will change once the codex comes out.  Oh well just more models to paint, darn.

Killa Kanz

I finished up my unit of Killa Kanz using some new products.  Lets take a look.

The first one I painted was done using a chipping fluid from Vallejo.  It turned out good however I was not very excited about how the model turned out.  I just really does not match my painting style and looks out of place in my army.

The second one I painted I used a light rust wash from the Mecha paint line by Vallejo.  I really liked the way this model turned out.  It matches my paint style of my army and made painting yellow easy.

The last one I painted was done using the dark rust from Vallejo.  This also turned out great and will look amazing in my army.  What I discovered with this product is what it does over a metallic silver.  It gives it a great color that I feel will work better with a bronze dry brush over it.  I will be giving this a try on a test model in the coming weeks.

I really like this new rust washes and I can't wait to use it on other models.

News From The Outpost Sept 2, 2017

Today we launched a live stream at Imperial Outpost Games.  This is going to be a weekly live stream talking about new products and scheduled events.  This has been my motivation learning how to live stream and we are still learning.  Still having some audio issues with low volume, background noise and the camera shaking when we bump the table.  We have a plan to correct these issues and will be able to present a better live stream over time.  I am always open to feedback and show ideas.

Using Chipping Medium

This is another attempt at using FB Live Streaming.  The volume is low so you might want to use headphones.  The opening screen shot is a bit long so just give it a few seconds.
