Old plastic ork

This is an old plastic Games Workshop Ork that I finally painted and used in my Mordheim gang. It will also be part of my Ork and Goblin fantasy army assuming I ever get it finished. I painted an entire Mordheim gang in one weekend which was a pretty big accomplishment for me. They came out looking pretty damn fine but I also used a limited pallette and even used some dry brushing to speed things up. Owen in particular was surprised how good I got some of the extremely old GW OOP plastics to look good. He was then all over me to paint up my entire army.

Before GW released multi-pose plastics alot of fantasy armies consisted of the same plastic model repeated dozens of times. It is one of the reasons I never got into fantasy, the other was my friends prefered 40K. The old models may have a little less detail but that doesn't mean you can't get them to look just as good as the newer models. GW wants you buy new models because it makes them money.

There is only at most one wash and two colors used in most of the highlights. A little of my tiny line style is used but not much. I dry brushed the metallic bits and the black cloth portions.

Now in 2019 I'm still painting single pose goblins that I got for Warhammer 4th Edition just like this ork.
