I have been working on painting up my first slugga boyz.
I have come up with a color scheme that I like for my orks' skin. It is a pretty standard scheme from what I have researched on the web. I start with a black primed model and paint the skin using the Orkhide Shade foundation paint. I follow that up with a straight coat of Snot Green, followed by a highlight of Goblin Green. For the extreme highlight, I use a 50/50 mix of Goblin Green and Bleached Bone. It is the same technique I used on my Warboss and it brings out the details nicely.
For the Bad Moon clothes, I used Scorched Brown highlighted with Bestial Brown, then a light extreme highlight of Snakebite Leather.
For the shirts, I used Desert Yellow and highlighted it with Bleached Bone.
I plan to wash the models with Devlan Mud. This will be my first attempt using it. I used to wash my models with Chestnut Wash to make them look dirty, but people tell me I really need to try the Devlan Mud.
More to come...
