Combat Patrol – Orks – part 3

The boss and the dredd got some more paint.

The rest of the gang got primed!

The box with orks ended up following me to the build weekend. The dredd figure got some terrain and some more paint.

The boss also got some more paint.

The orks got some grey primer and a light white drybrush.

Then I started painting the skin green.

The deff koptas also got the same treatment.

Once I got home, I continued with the green colours adding more highlights.

Still some more to do with the skin. Then I’ll start painting their clothes and other details.
Just need to figure good colours for their pants and shirts. Since they’re goff I guess it would be mainly dark or perhaps black.

Combat Patrol – Orks – part 2

I’ve started painting them in black primer. The dreadnought also got some rust and metal colours. The boss figure also got some metal painted on the larger metal areas.

After that I assembled the Dredd and started adding more colours like the checker pattern, which wasn’t easy doing by freehand.

Eyes and a few other details left to do and I’ll also add some more rust here and there.
The boss figures got some dry brushing with grey and white.

I’ll start to paint the skin green and I’ll also finish priming the other orks so I can start painting them as well. Except for the checker patterns it’s a quite simple painting scheme mostly in black and metal.

Combat Patrol – Orks – Warhammer 40k

This is one of the 24 (as far as I know) available Combat Patrol boxes from Games Workshop. Which is their new starter sets instead of the Start Collecting boxes.
As I understand it the troops included make up about 500 points. This is enough to have smaller battles that takes from half an hour to an hour.
Normal battles consist of troops worth 2-3000 points and usually takes a while longer to play. This box is supposed to be a good starting point to build your army.

The build of the figures is fairly easy as it’s push fit and supposed to go together with no glue. I snip or sand the tabs a bit to ensure that they don’t stop at the bottom of the hole. This is to prevent the parts from not going together properly. The fit of these kits is very good so it might not be needed, but still, just in case.

Here’s some build pics!

Big boss in armour.

First boss nob.

The first few boyz.

Three deff koptas.

The Deff Dredd. I actually got one of the very pointy spikes in my finger, which drew a drop of blood!

All the figures in the box built!

I’ve started painting black primer on some of them and that is the next step I’ll be working with on these guys. I’ll also use grey and white primer to do zenithal highlighting before I start to paint them.
