Here they come the last three Orks of this batch, who besides allow me to finish the whole Space Riders KS minis:)
I went back for a full Chaotic approach. The old Freeboterz book proved useful for inspiration:
|Oh, come on, Diego! Sculpt that Ogryn!!|
But I gave them yet another twist. I'm trying to avoid the classic flashy green for their skin, but... what if I tried not even green, but totally different colours?
I particularly enjoyed this model the most, I think. It has something... indefinable about its quality. I think it has charm, character. I love it!
I was suggested to paint an Ork red. I kinda found it funny (and a challenge!). I'm not sure if I succeeded. This bright red was quite an extreme choice, I believe. Chromatically too extreme, maybe. Anyway, as an experiment it's been nice. I may try darker tones for future references ;)
As this was the last one, I let myself go with the trousers and the banner. I wasn't sure of what motif could work here, I hope it fits the general spirit of the unit.
I still haven't worked on a proper name for the band not a proper story behind them. All I have come with is that they are some rogue Freebooterz torn apart from the Ork society who offer their services to anyone willing to pay enough teef. For sure they have travelled and seen some wonders through the galaxy, as well as some pretty ugly stuff too!
Phew! It's nice to close a stage, hehe. The Space Riders KS has been extremely rewarding, I've enjoyed the strange creatures in it and specially the Ork warband.
Now for more projects!! New stuff incoming!
