Here's some photos just in the forum thread. A wide angle of the whole of my collection at the time. I think this photo was taken fall of 2016, around the time I finish painting my battlewagon. The other photo is probably the model I'm most proud of, it's the one my wife let's me display on the book case haha. It's the old dakkajet! I love the Ork planes. They have this super old worldy feel to them that just brings me a lot of joy. Like they belong in a WW2 battle instead of a super futuristic alien species that travels through space. I'm very proud to say I did the basing myself!
I'm planning on doing some yellow for my Orks very soon and have watched quite a few tutorials on how to get that true yellow. Could you talk about the process you used here on your imperial fists? They look great!
So I can't really explain the greatest but I'll try my best. I'm in no means a pro, I think I sorta lucked out on that model. I based it in black so I have a darker yellow at the start, then I'd keep layering yellow (aver land sunset) until I got mostly the color I was looking for.. I think I did 2 coats of yellow, then I used earthshade agrax for shading in the recesses and a light coat over all the yellow.. it changes the yellow just a tad darker. After that dried I dry brushed more yellow being careful to avoid any grooves and recesses. Once all that is done it was just a matter of doing the minor details in whatever colors you would see fit. I would've used a lighter yellow for highlights but I didn't have any so I opted for white highlights. The chest emblem is a combo of black at first (the basecoat), then a lazy dry brush of white, dry brush of lead Belcher ended with dry brush of gold. I hope I explained this well and I hope your models turn out great for you
With my current projects I'm primed in a fairly mid tone grey that I think I'll be building up from. I think I need to pick up a slightly darker yellow to base coat and then I'll be building up mostly with Yriel Yellow and then doing some edge highlights later on. I'm looking for a bright really orky yellow. Some glaring and kind of ugly haha.
