Orruk Warboss Skin Tutorial.

Hi all, I started this miniature a while ago now and I'm pretty sure that it wont get finished. I did do a stage by stage on the skin (yes it's blue) so i thought I'd post it up anyway.
Hopefully someone might find it useful!
Cheers! Daz

  1. No sure about the blue 😀 fantasic work and thank you for all the pictures. I have the Megaboss partially painted and will come back to this for tips on the ears and mouth areas

  2. Thanks for sharing. As always, even your incomplete projects are in a class of their own, not just for paint work but for the standard of tutorial. This tutorial will still be gold, 20 years down the line. Thanks again for being so open with your magic !

  3. Just saw this. I found this very useful. I think I might finally start my ork army and use this colour. Thank you very much for sharing.
