So I've had this Buzzgob model set sitting around for quite some time. Seeing as it was a very generous gift from an e-bro, I felt I should finally get around to painting it up. I made it part of my April Oath over at Something Awful. I finished it yesterday- pictures after the jump!
This set of models represents the first orky stuff I've painted since my Big Mek Stompa back in June. The detail on this guy intimidated me for awhile, but it wasn't too bad once I just knuckled down and started painting. Since Forgeworld doesn't have any painted pictures of this model, I used as inspiration an excellent paintjob I found on CMON. It really helped to see all the details picked out rather than in bare resin or primer.
|I like having some bright spot colors to contrast all the dark, grungy metal and skin.|
|Smoking is bad, mmmk?|
|Again an example of the spot colors I like using.|
Buzzgob also comes with a set of grot assistants:
|I learned after painting my stompa, to use white to break up all the blue.|
In game, they give him +1 Ld and count as Grot Oilers. So, not really all that useful but fun to paint. I really like how the banner pole came out. I'm even happier with the 'poster' grot. I originally slapped some decals on there, but they looked cheesy and like a cop out. So I painted over all that then decided to add some insightful statistical analysis to my 40k orks. Took about 5 minutes, and totally worth it in my opinion.
And one shot of all of them together:
Thanks for taking the time to look at these. Hope you enjoy!
