Ork fighter bomber inbound!

So I’ve had this Ork bomber since they released it several years ago, built and then primed it gray then painted it bad-moons yellow then just played with it with just the base coat on, kind of boring I know but I had already bought a new GW kit and was now focused on that… as you do! 😉 … then when 8Th Ed came out I was exited to spruce up my Orks a bit like mounting my Nobs on 32mm bases and unifying the paint jobs of my Orks as they are a mix of Bad moon an Death Skullz ! So I hand painted the bomber in Abaddon Black then go over it with a big dry brush with Leadbelcher. Then went at the details with troll slayer orange.

Then I used a base of Caledor Sky to mark out the flames on the bomber,

Once all the flames were down and I was happy with the shapes they made I did a second coat of Caledor Sky then when that was dry I cleansed up the edges of the flames with Fenrisian Gray! This is where it has sat for a while I still want to hit it with some browns in places to tone down some of the orange then add exhaust port carbon scoring and even some oil drip which I plan to use the Vallejo engine weathering effects “petrol spills”, that I bought.

I still have a lot to do! I figure if I post an in progress post I’ll be more apt to finish it soon so I can post the final results!

Well I’m off now to paint something now I’m feeling

a bit productive today!

Got some AoS Orks green skins and Chaos warriors that need paint on them! 😀

  1. It looks marvellous mate. One of the best I’ve seen.


  2. I have a bomber that is still shrink wrapped in its box. I hope to get to it this year.

    Something weird is happening with the photos in your latest posts mate. They’re huge and don’t display properly. Your older posts are fine, so I’m not sure what it is exactly…

      Yea I had a issue with my phone doing that in the edit mode but was fine when I went into the recently pressed mode! So I fairly certain it’s WordPress that did an update and they broke something because all my photos are the same size from the same source. And the one that goes to my email address is fine too. Question are you viewing it on a computer or a tablet or phone? I’m just curious!

        I was viewing on my PC. I’ve noticed the same issues on a couple of other blogs, though rarely. It seems to be fixed now, and I have to add to the others – the plane looks great!

        Ah thank you! And your right I had some friends that had the same problem on both Mac and Pc, so I surmised it was an update that went south, they must have introduced a bug that took out the auto scale to size of page for the original size of the photo. I was able to fix it with just using the large photo setting which was not an auto resize, at least that I could tell!
        Any way hopefully it is fixed I really want to post my AoS Orruk army now that it’s almost finished! Thx for the reply!
