Project Update: Freebooterz Snakebites Boyz

I've had these guys done for a few days now, but I haven't been able to get the photos off of my camera and onto the computer. I decided to go with Snakebites for something different. For the weapons I wanted to keep them simple with little decoration to show there more primal nature. I'm particually happy with the squig on the Nobz bosspole. I also went for a lighter almost orange shade with the red to help separate them the Speed Freaks squad I plan on painting. One thing about painting Orks, there are a lot of little details. A lot. I never noticed them, and I'm not sure that most people even paint them and I understand why. It's so easy to miss things and think that you have a figure done only to realize there's another pouch or tooth to paint and highlight. But in the end it's worth it even if I'll be picking these guys off the table by the handfulls. The last Boy on the page is the driver for the Trukk that I still need to finish. I figured I might as well go ahead and paint him at the same time as the squad.

Up next will be 5 Deff Coptas that I've already built and primed. These things had a ton of flash and mold lines which is odd since they came in the same boxes as the Boyz and Nobz that had very little flash. Maybe its just a bad section in the mold area.
