Painting Tutorial: Ironjawz / Orks



this video is sponsored by deep cut studios for a wide range of fantastic gaming resources such as battle maps diced race and pre painted bases check out the description below hi guys walkabouts Eng productions my name is Tom and in this video we're gonna be looking at painting Oryx or orcs in the most simple way possible using the Citadel contrast range and a little bit of dry brushing afterwards so this is not designed for pros it's designed for people like me who have a little bit of an issue painting and want to get a good result quickly so as you may have seen these models before in our flesh tones video I started by using all flesh on a gray sear undercoat and those the miniatures were going to be using today so you can check out that video but in short apply it like you would a shade wash don't load up the brush too much throughout this video as you can see I'm using the army paintin regiment brush which is a good solid basic standard brush and then I'll move on to a dry brush later now as you can see here we've moved on to the E and then yellow which is really really nice color you don't have to paint your orc army yellow there's gonna be techniques for blues and blacks within this video however the yellow is kind of the the go-to for the Oryx in Warhammer Age of Sigma so that's the color that I'm using and you can see me applying it throughout trying to make sure it doesn't pull up anywhere too much I mean I'm gonna be dry brushing it later but you can see the finish here trying to keep the paint moving and it gives this beautiful vibrant yellow tone now if you see my year 5 top tips video you'll know how much I love black Templar now that's gonna go on all of our metallic areas again applying it relatively generously and allowing it to kind of cover that gray see a kind of undercoat enough that it doesn't look too white underneath but allowing the highlights to pop through this is going on all of our metallic areas like the chainmail it's going on the weapon handles it's not gonna go on the weapon blades and you'll see why I'm gonna try and do something slightly different with that but this is a really really nice paint for just getting major coverage on areas and if you don't even choose to kind of dry brush your silver afterwards like I will you can leave it as the black Templar and it still is a really really nice finish now as I keep mentioning later on the video we're gonna kind of stop at a table top ready point which is just using the contrast paint and then if you want to take it further I'll show you what you can dry brush but as you can see really nice coverage gives that kind of dark metallic tone even though it's nonmetal now the reason I didn't do the blades is because Spaceballs grades oddly becoming my new favorite four weapon blades now you can dress this up with some metallic by actually quite like the idea of using it as like almost like a stone color for barbarian war bands if anyone seen my God's one hunt that I've used in the quick tips video and in the flesh tones you'll be able to see that one of them's got a big axe blade that's been painted up this way now you can see really nice tone there if you dry brush a little bit of dawn stone afterwards it's really really nice finish to it and it contrasts well parting the pond with the black onto the wall odd wood then this is useful for anything wooden spoilers that's kind of the clue in the name however for me I'm gonna use it on all of the kind of trousers and these Oryx have got like an undershirt underneath their chainmail somehow poking through so be used for that it's a really really nice Brown you've got to apply it relatively thick compared to the others Oaks if you apply it then you start to see the brushstrokes coming through and I'll explain that in a second when come on to the blue that's probably one of the bigger issues with contrast paints so as I spin it around here we go onto the snakebite leather color this is a fantastic ubiquitous straps and handles color you know you could do it a lighter tone but I'm using it on all the weapon handles here I'm gonna use it on the straps or on the back of the ORAC and on its head now stake bite leather in particular goes on really nicely over the gray see it undercoat it's probably of the ones I actually prefer going over the lighter and the co rather than the warmer Wraith bone but to be honest any of these colors would work just as well over the Wraith bone and if you want that kind of more golden a yellow for the yellow arm Wraith bone is an excellent substitute which you can use for that but as you can see just being really neat with my regiment brush here you could switch to a smaller brush if you want to but my whole aim with this video is to try and Bank it out as quickly as I can so I can just show people that you know it's it's possible for somebody like me who doesn't particularly enjoy the painting part the hobby to do a good's qualities in a relatively short amount of time and as you can see the snake my leathers already picked out this lovely color now on to perhaps the trickiest part or my least favorite part this is the Leviathan blue which if you've seen my kind of blue summary of the contrast paints will know that I've called it my least favorite blue now you could use any blue here and actually it's one of those paints that the thicker you probably put it on the bottom that goes against one of my kind of tip for these contrast paints because you rapidly see brushstrokes now it's not gonna matter too much I'm painting this in a rush if I wish you at home I would use the contrast medium 50/50 mix and then essentially do two coats with it that'll probably get a really nice smooth finish as opposed to as you can see here slightly blotch you finish that I'm getting however because I'm choosing to dry brush over the blue and it's gonna get quite a heavy dry brush it's not bothering me too much here if I can see a little bit of the paint strokes all I want is that instant color and shade going on the mask here as well so it's up to you what color you could use here if you're painting most of the orc armor or auric armor in this Lavoie and blue I would say maybe start using the medium and kind of double coat with the thin layers as opposed to bolting over like me moving on skeleton horde here now skeleton horde will be useful for Yorick Steve is conveniently got a mask on but you'll see some other examples they've got all manner of the countrymen of schools and teeth and bits around their neck so you can easily slap this on and it'll pick out really nicely the color it's also quite a quite a calm color to go on and essentially if you overlap accidentally on something else it doesn't overpower it too much at all and with that in mind you can now see me going to a grouse toons this is specifically just to show people in case they're painting these shades Beyer they called the iron school's boys if they're painting these models in particular I go students is just great for the base color it's a nice darker kind of sandy badlands color which actually you could use if you wanted more kind of rotting teeth look or you can even use it on the weapon handles there's a slightly more tanned skin so just contrast this is my table ready results so far so as you can see I personally are more than happy with this model to put it on the table as is it's if you're starting with painting and you want to invest in five or six and you've got you know orc army that you want to paint this will get you a solid result and a big squad at least together will look relatively nice however you've got a bit more time and patience you can move on to the second step which isn't gonna require anything any more fancy this is just simply dry brushing so I'm moving to a small dry brush here and you can see me get most of the paint off and I'm starting with the flash gets yellow here I don't want to build up too many layers of different colors because I wants to be quick and we're just gonna go over going against the grain or against the angle should I say kind of a right angle – any sharp edges of this yellow armor and you'll be able to see immediately on the armor joints like the elbows on the hands that yellow gets picked out and it brightens the armor up again and this gives quite nice clean armor look now I'm gonna dirty up later but if you want a slightly cleaner look to your armor you can even use this for is that space means the Imperial fist summer that'd be really good as well I'm – stass it's gnar snicks toe they're smashing it green that's a hard one to say on camera for the flesh now you could build this up again with layers but I just want an extreme highlight really quickly and you can see me there's not really much flesh on this model so you'll see in a second I'll pick another auric out I think it's goes out I and skill just to show you the detail on the face as you apply this you can see it's relatively dark there but a very quick dry brush going again to the muscles these facial features like the lips and the eyes and the scars and that and you can see brightens him up really nicely and gets a good highlight now going back to the blue that I spoke about earlier on we're gonna go quite heavy on the dry brush here I'm usually quite light with my dry brushing and kind of build it up slowly with cantle blue I'm gonna actually not just apply it on the edges I'm gonna apply it to the flat surfaces of these armor plates to try and gently cover up the paint splotches or where they paint has pulled on the flat areas now obviously if you use the contrast medium you've done two thin coats you probably don't have this problem but for me particular contour blue is just gonna start to even out that tone I don't want to paint straight on it because I don't want to lose any of the tone and where it was but you might choose to and you could put like a blue ink on instead however with the LT och blue that's gonna go on next that will again gently go over the flat and the edges focusing more on the edges of the armor but kind of moving towards the center so again give a bit more variation in tone and with the ho F blue that you can see on the right hand side that will be specifically for the edges of the armors to try and pick out a nice clean edge to where the armors are chipped and where they're damaged now again this will leave quite a clean result to the armor and again in a second we're going to try and dirty that up and make it look chipped however if you're using armies and you want that kind of clean look you can use this paint and just leave it as is the models pretty much ready to go with those dry brushes and it's picked up there's only silver really to go on which we'll do in a second but the ho F blue as you can see is really bright looking blue in the part but actually as you apply it it just gives that slight light shine and again specifically holding the miniature so I'm looking down at it like where the light would show him on it and just picking out any of the Rays details as I go along trying to keep not too much paint on my brush as a go on really the cancel blue is the only kind of thin dry brush you need to worry about and just making sure I go against the edges and picking up the light as I see fit now here we go dawn stone then so you remember that snake snake that space wolves gray on the weapon shafts a little bit of dawn stone goes a long way here I don't overload my brush too much but this will pick up all the kind of jagged edges on the weapons and actually this is something you could use with any army it gives a really really nice effect you could choose to dry brush this in a slightly darker gray if you wanted to go for a non metallic metal look or if you go from the more kind of stony look like I am here dry brushing you can see it just picks out the sharp edges again this is taking no time all this per pot is literally a minute if that and you know you could paint a full squad on to let belchior there now you could use any silver you want here leather which is great for me because I like the kind of dark gunmetal look and again if you saw their 5 tips video you'll know that I'm quite a proponent now if using black Templar with a metallic dry brush over the top it gives this really nice worn metal look which is great for kind of barbarian armies aux as you can see here and anyone else who wouldn't have liked you know the best quality materials and you can see going over the chainmail to pick up the links now something a little bit different here I'm going to use a slightly smaller brush this is an army paints a character brush and I'm going to dry brush again onto the blue areas now I'm deliberately kind of just going into where the Knicks are in the armor so where it's been sculpted for having chips I'm just dragging my brush with a little bit of paint on to try and make marks but it looks like silver chipping and I am also going over the flat areas and what I do also go over that it's just gently kind of rub and spiral the brush now there really isn't much paint on the brush here and actually as I hold it up to camera you'll be able to see the effect it's probably hard to see from this angle it just gives the odd nick and chip and as you can see here just gives that kind of silvery battered tone completely optional for this part however again it just gives that idea of this kind of um and that's a bit of depth of detail you can see the shine on the blue there anyway we're onto the Browns now golf or Brown is my favorite choice you could use bein played Brown if you've got it in stock Gothel browser is great it's ubiquitous for going over most Brown colors gives them all a unified color and again one of my tips for you is to make use of dry brushes that can be used on large amounts of the minute tricks it ties it all together because of contrast do you have a habit of being quite vibrant now what I'm gonna do here I'm gonna be very careful and I recommend you start on kind of a small area of the armor like that you won't see like the belly area here I'm doing the same as what I did with the silver so I'm putting a little bit of paint on a smaller brush your character brush and just gently swirling it and picking chips in the armor to try and make and batter down that yellow so it looks slightly less bright and vibrant and that allows the aurochs to again look like they've been in a few battles so you can see for the models that have been completed you can see the colors have been picked up there grand total painting time if I didn't have the camera in front of me you're looking at maybe an hour to an hour and a half depending on how quickly the paint's dry I mean I've got the camera lights which is great which kind of you know nukes the models really quickly goes ah here you can see here's got a few extra details he's got Gorger and two fur on his shoulder and all I've done is dry brush the door on stone over black Templar and his cape together cut him a battered leather look but essentially all these other Oryx here using the exact same paint scheme and you can see that kind of slight dry brushing afterwards does wonders for making the flash pop and the yellow and that chipping effect even though you know from the table level we're not gonna see a lot of it you can see plenty here so hopefully these tips have been useful for getting your auric army out if you have got any questions please do leave them in the comments below and let us know how you get on like I said this is not designed for propane's as this decide for anybody who just wants to get a nice looking army out relatively quickly using contrast paints so thank you very much for watching guys and we will see you in the next one

    I found the Blue’s and other “dark/heavy pigmented” contrast paints they need rather thick coats to work.
