I finally managed to get some painting done after a VERY hectic week two weeks ago. This past week, however, I got in about two and a half hours to work on the Boyz. I decided that since I am lacking arms on a good portion of them, I would paint up the 10 that I had already started to paint to completion. That will give me 15 complete Orc Boyz. Then, once I get the necessary bits for the remaining part of the unit, I will work on them. So, here we go.
I decided to go over all of the brown areas again in order to darken the color and cover up any areas that may have dried thin enough to have the black primer show through. After this, I decided that I would spend my time focusing on getting the skin done. I liked what I did on the previous orcs, the ones that are already done, but wanted the highlights to pop a bit more on these so I went a little more in depth on these. I started with a nice coat of dark green.

After this, I put some ink wash on these models to get the deeper parts to pop.

Once this was completed, I began to work the models with a mixture of the lighter green and brown while inking in between each application. This would hopefully ensure that the crevices would be a nice, deep green with the highlights really popping out.
