|Ork Warboss (Assault on Black Reach), work-in-progress on the non-metal parts|
|Red topknot and cable covers won't look so bright once the rest of the Ork Warboss is painted up|
Latest progress on the Assault on Black Reach Ork Warboss comprise work done on the non-metal parts of the miniature which include among others the topknot, cable covers, clothing, bone etc. He will be painted in colours of the Bad Moonz ork clan so there will be more yellow yet to come.

|Small details are wonderfully thought out e.g. teeth as a Warboss would be expected to flaunt his wealth|
When I first started out on the hobby, this miniature looked very intimidating and I didn't have the skills to make a go of it. But now, I can at the very least make it look ... hopefully ... half-decent.

For his loincloth, I copied a 'Eavy Metal design which was used in a painting guide. Freehand painting of the flame on the loincloth were based more on the colours of the Bad Moonz clan rather than actual flames i.e. bright light yellows versus dark yellows bordering on orange.

Meanwhile, I will be placing W40K miniatures in my collection that are for sale (second-hand but new-in-box) under the 'Shop' tab found near the top of my blog. In addition, there will also be a link to my blogshop which sells new non-W40K miniatures for painters and collectors in Malaysia. In the future, this section may include fully painted miniatures for sale. Who knows, maybe one day I might even consider doing painting commissions ... after all stranger things have happened.
