Day 20: Ork Nob

If you've been in the hobby for a few years you might remember when Assault on Black Reach first came out. The corresponding White Dwarf came with a free sprue of minis consisting of a Terminator & a Nob. I painted up the Termi as a Fire Angel and left the nob alone until yesterday.

I wanted him to have a biker-esque quality so I stuck with darker tones, like with the pants and boots. Also thought it'd be neat to have his green skin to stand out, so I decided to use a muted palette. The only other actual color (other than silver metal, black & white) are the bone colored teeth & nails and the leather straps (I used a more reddish brown so the green would pop a bit more). Overall I think he's decent, but certinly isn't going to make me go out & start an Ork army.



  1. How did you deal with the purple wash issue?

    1. For some reason my purple wash can leave a white residue in the recesses of my minis.

      I mostly ignored it actually. I just painted over most of the white, filmy areas. You can still see a little bit of it between the fingers, and on the inside of the ears.
