|Games Workshop Ork Painboy [Completed]|
|Spin the doctor and he would move in a kaleidoscope of colours|
|Insane amount of details equaled many hours of painting put in|
|Colours are a mishmash of yellow-green, yellow, orange, red, red-violet, blue-green and neutral hues|
In a departure from the normal colour schemes expected of a Bad Moons Ork (or is it?), I went colour crazy on the Painboy. His colour scheme comprised a mishmash of yellow-green, yellow, orange, red, red-violet, blue-green and neutral hues. I was curious if such a variety of hues could work or would it just overwhelm the senses. Looking at the finished piece now I think it kinda does.
|Yellows of the Bad Moons Clan were limited to the bosspole and loin cloth|
|Temptation to splash blood everywhere on the Painboy's buzz-saw weapon was high ...|
|... but in the end, only a dab of blood made it to a blade attached to the buzz-saw|
|This Ork Painboy has one of the most colourful schemes I have ever attempted|
The Ork Painboy is actually part of a set with its other half being a Grot Orderly which I completed a year ago. Both complement each other colour scheme wise and are a welcome addition to my fledgling ork army. It will be a while before I return to painting orks though as I plan to move on to Chaos in my Games Workshop-related miniatures project. A break from green skin will do me good.

Perhaps it's fitting and ironic that my next Games Workshop miniature will likely be an ode to Nurgle seeing that this piece is dedicated to healing. More on that project in the coming weeks. Meanwhile the hazy conditions just won't go away. It's getting worse. A news report alleges that the carbon released from the Indonesian fires causing the haze have now exceeded the emissions from the entire US economy. Imagine that! In this day and age where war violence dominates global news, this environmental horror show seems to have largely escaped the attention of the rest of the world. I shudder to think the price Earth is going to pay for this tragedy that's slowly unfolding before us.
