|Meet Baldrick Greenadder, grot orderly extraordinaire and assistant to the Ork Painboy|
|With so much blood on him, things don't seem to be going too well for the patients|
|If your health care worker has this expression on his or her face ... run|
Because I couldn't really make out all the items that were placed on Baldrick's surgical tray, I had to make things up as I went along. Hopefully you can spot some of the items listed below:
1. Magnet - For pulling out those hard to reach bullets;
2. Surgical knife - For slicing and dicing those damaged parts away;
3. Rusted blades - For initiating a medical procedure the orks lovingly call Gangrene-sectomy;
4. Piece of dirty cloth - For bandaging wounds as orks believe dirt helps initiate blood clotting;
5. Metal rods - For when all else fails, it doesn't hurt to poke around for a solution.
|Can you spot the surgical knife, magnet, spare blades, extra cloth and some pokey things on the tray?|
Baldrick's cloths were painted in a colour that you would usually see in a human health care worker while some yellow bands of cloth were added to indicate where the Grot Orderly's loyalty lies i.e. the Bad Moonz Clan. The only other clothing on him were the bandages which had some blood effects painted on them using, for the first time in my miniature paint works, the Tamiya Clear Red X-27.
|Baldrick seems to have a lot of arterial blood on his work clothes ... not good|
|Grot Orderly's pants were painted in the colours of a hospital orderly's attire|
One key challenge I faced when painting the Grot Orderly was trying to make the liquid in the syringe look realistic. Though I can't say if I truly managed that, it was my first try at painting a liquid inside a clear container so I certainly hope to get better at it in the future. The liquid is blue in colour because Orks use a human drug called Viagra which serves like a shot of adrenalin for them.
|Is that a liquid solution of Viagra in the syringe?|
|Thin line of highlight was applied to simulate reflection of a cylinder glass syringe|

I hope you liked meeting Baldrick Greenadder. But I hope too for your sake you never have to meet one yourself whether in-spirit or in-real-life. Happy Halloween and go give yourself a good scare.
