Paint Table Saturday - 105 (a day late) - Makari the Gretchin

Hi All,

I could have posted the progress on this guy yesterday, as he was finished except for varnish, but we bought the wife a new car and that ate up most of the day.

Sorry for the glare, too close with the flash etc. The decision to use gloss on the horns looks like a bad one with the flash. I'm sure in regular light it will look better. In the background is my interpretation of the Goff warbanner from 'Ere We Go! I'm doing it as more of a flag than a banner that hangs from a cross bar.

I kept his uniform subdued as I didn't want it to distract from the banner. I also wanted to try blending from yellow to red on the horns. I sort of made a pigs ear of it but I know what to look out for next time. I went with light up to dark, as per my natural world research from the black orc, not realizing that the old pictures of Ghazaghkull et al from 1st Ed 40K were red to yellow. Ah well.

I'll post better pictures in the next day or two. I have to replace my daughter's bike tires and take my son to track practice.

Thanks for looking. Oh and I'll talk more about the banner and Ork glyph's when I update.

    1. Thank you Michael. I'm hoping the final studio shot will show them off better.
