Rough Guide to Painting a Bad Moonz Ork Deffkopta
Yellow Armoured Panels - A midtone layer of 1:1 Iyanden Darksun:Golden Yellow mix was followed by a highlight of 1:1 Golden Yellow:Skull White mix.A wash of Gryphonne Sepia was applied to the panels' recesses as well as the black flame markings.
Ork Skin - This time round, I decided to paint a brighter skin tone and went with the traditional Games Workshop style of Knarloc Green followed by Goblin Green (Midtones) and always leaving the darker layer showing a little bit at each step. Finally a 1:1 Goblin Green:Bleach Bone mix was used for the skin highlights. A wash of Thraka Green was applied right at the end.
Waist Cloak - For the cloak around the Ork pilot's waist, a midtone layer of Scab Red was applied followed by a wash of Devlan Mud and Badab Black. Then, a layer of Red Gore was applied while taking care not to obscure the shadows created by the wash and also part of the Scab Red layer. Finally a highlight comprising a 1:1 mix of Blood Red and Blazing Orange was applied. For some contrast, the inner layer of the coat which had been basecoated with Astronomican Grey was painted with a midtone of Skull White and washed with Badab Black and Devlan Mud to 'dirty it up'.
Metal Parts - Parts basecoated earlier with Tin Bitz were painted with a midtone layer comprising either just Dwarf Bronze or a 1:1 mix of Tin Biz:Dwarf Bronze. A wash of Gryphonne Sepia was applied to finish off the bronze-looking parts. For the rest, a highlight of Mithril Silver was used.
Ork pilot hat, gloves and pants - No midtones was used. They were just highlighted using a 1:1 mix of Scorched Brown:Bestial Brown.
Ork teeth - A simple midtone layer of Bleached Bone was followed by a wash of Devlan Mud.
Fur lining on the flight jacket, leather bindings on the vehicle - A midtone of Kommando Khaki was applied followed by a wash of Devlan Mud. No highlights were used, though they can be added for a more detailed paint job.
Well that's about it for a rough how-to on painting an Ork Deffkopta. It forms a basis on which to build on as further highlights can certainly improve the vehicle's look. But it is, however, a reasonably quick way to paint one, all things considered.
