Project Update: Freebooterz Nobz

Here they are, the six Nobz for my Nobz squad. I didn't have time to build the 'Dok, or even order Mad Dok Grotsnik. After taking the photo's I've seen a few areas to go back and touch up, but other than that these guys are done. If anyone has ANY tips for painting yellow, I'm listening. As of now, I'm done with yellow. I've tried starting with white, Iyanden Darksun, brown, and even black. On the table is doesn't look as bad, but in all reality I'm not happy with these guys at all. The other colors just get lost to horrible mess that is yellow. Maybe I'm just being to much of a perfectionist. I'll see what I think about these guys after I get finished with my first of three 30 Ork Boyz squads.


  1. My yellow recipe:

    Black undercoat (I'm sure white would work too but I prime in black almost exclusively)
    Gryphonne Sepia wash
    %80 re-coat of Iyanden
    %20 highlight of Sunburst yellow
    edge/final highlight of Badmoon Yellow

  2. I'll have to try the wash then re-coat of Iyanden. Looking back, I'm covering too much of the previous coat. I'll redo the Nobz banner with that method and see how it comes out. It'll have to wait until I get some of the wash on Thursday though.

  3. calthan brown > blend> vallejo deep yellow ( or any yellow> blend>white

    that help? yellow is a pain but if its thin in many layers it can be cool! (example at my blog )

    i hope this helps
