The more vigilant of you may have noticed these boys in the background of my last update. The Ork Kill Team box comes with 5 Burna Boyz in it but a full kill team needs a few more bodies to get it up to points.
Therefore, I have gathered together some eBay finds, and a few old miniatures from various bitz boxes, in hopes of having enough greenskins to get a decent team together.
I suspect that these Gretchins are the least likely troop type to be included in my first team, as every dead figure adds to your chance of failing a nerve test. I haven’t painted any green skins in the last few years so I am definitely out of practice using green skin tones. These guys should make a great set of test figures to get a colour pallet planned though.
I don’t want to use the standard Ork green or Goblin green skin tone for these guys. I see them as being modern tunnel dwellers (do Orks and Goblins lose their ‘tan’ if kept out of the sun?). Either way I want a lighter, pasty green, for these guys! No matter what the lore says.
I have to say that the level of detail on these guys is excellent. Not too many items to paint but easily defined after a green Athonian Camoshade wash. Teeth, fingernails and toenails all present and correct…
I had best get going with these guys as Coronasan has already had a test game of Kill Team and I suspect it will be high on our list of games to be played over the winter.
