I have finally started my Circle of Orboros faction which I purchased in the spring. My first twenty five points consists of

Warcaster: Morvanhna the Autumnblade
Feral Warpwolf Heavy warbeast
Pureblood Warpwolf Heavy warbeast
War wolf
Argus light warbeast
Tharn Ravager White Mane
3 x Warpborn Skinwalkers

Please note: I have never played this game so the effectiveness of the force is unknown to me, I selected the force using http://www.forwardkommander.com/ and took models I liked the look of and wanted to paint.

My plan here is to do a step by step guide as I paint each model/models and ultimately the faction, with discriptions of each stage as I go. I'm hoping that some people find it useful and intresting, plus it gives me a chance to look at why I do things the way I do. If anyone wishes to comment, suggest ideas, ask questions etc please feel free its why I'm doing it after all.

I have a big mix of paints from old Gw from the 90s to Vallejo. If i was to recommend what to use I would recommend Vallejo for quality and quantity, but GW are always going to be easier to dive out and get as most towns have access to them.

After much thought and asking opinons I have decided to paint my entire faction with an autumn theme hopefully this will come across when the models are compleated.
I'm not setting out to rush these and I'm not the swiftest of painters plus I have many life commitments to juggle but I'm hoping to keep this relatively up to date.

My first project will be the War wolf as I really like the model and its relatively simple painting wise.

My initial plan is to give it some leopard spotting on the fur just to add some intrest to the model and a challenge for myself.
Unfortuantly I had this idea just after i had based coated the model so the prep section will have to be described with out a picture (I'm sure you will cope)

Construction and priming:

Ok so gluing the back leg on was simple, I didn't pin it as its fixed to the base aswell as the model and its a large fixing area so didn't really need it, I did however find that the joint line needed a slight fill on it, for this i used playdoh (yeah kids playdoh), I find for small fine joint lines its perfect as you can use just your finger and its easily removed from any detail if it goes in the wrong place. The area I had to apply it to was so small and fine its softness wasn't an issue and it saves on expensive modeling putty. I wouldn't us it on large filling areas or any moulding work.

I prime everything I paint, for this model I used Coat d'arms grey primer thinned down pulling any exess off with a dry brush and trying to keep it even and thin. I use a white/grey primer on prity much everything I paint for the very reason that its easier to make things look dull than it is to make them look bright. The only exception to this is when the model is mainly black or very dark.

Base coat

After the primer was dry I applied a coat of Fiery orange (old gw paint) to all the areas that are body or fur, at this point neatness isn't some thing to overly worry about but keeping the paint nice and even and not to thick is. Make sure the paint has reached all the recesses of the model and hasn't pooled any where losing detail.

Inking

After the base coat is dry I covered all of the orange area with a thin coat of burnt umber Acrylic artists ink. I thined it down a little just enough to bring out the detail and definition of the model. Make sure the entire area is properly covered and the ink is emphasing the detail. This process helps give the models more depth and also shows you where to highlight to a degree.

Thats how far I have got and havn't had chance to continue tonight. Hopefully I should get another installment up tomorrow. Thanks for reading thus far

A note on the brushes I use,
for fine detail i use Winsor and Newton Series 7 I have a 1,0, and a 000
I have a load of others for base coating, mixing etc.
I use Pro Arte prolene 1/8th and up for dry brushing.

When I went to that painting day the other day there was a tutorial by Tommie Soule on painting faces, (look him up - from Golem Painting Studios). He used just one brush which about a "2".(This had a nice point but also held a fair amount of paint), which was quite interesting.

Will do, obviously the point would be the most important part if its good you can do that, I used just a 1 for a while because I was lucky enough to just pick up a nice brush.

Interesting that you have not done any basing atm. I'm always worried about mashing up the finished model with PVA and sand etc.

(Looking forward to more pics!)
