I honestly don't want to know how many hours it took me to finish these.  I've now got three squads of thirty and one squad of twenty Grots.  I already had ten of each of the yellow, red, and orange Grots.  These had suffered a rather catastrophic frosting incident involving Games Workshop's terrible Purity Seal product and I did get a chance to fix that a little bit, though the gun barrels and some of the flock is still sub-par.

I also got an opportunity to paint the Warboss a good friend of mine gave me from his last tournament winnings.  I've always wanted a warboss model to represent the "All the Attacks" build with Attack Squig and little else.  SEVEN attacks on the charge at Strength 6?  Sure! I'd try that! 

I haven't decided on a name for him yet, however.

My Process:

Basecoat with Valspar Labrador Brown

Drybrush with Boltgun/Leadbelcher, heavy on metal areas, light on other areas.

Basecoats.  I mainly use Apple Barrel paints.

Dark brown wash, then highlights.

Basing.  My orks use a heavy amount reddish brown/wood glue mix dipped in sand, then decorated with stones and a bit of flock.  The world is meant to be one where there is a great deal of rain but also a lot of solar activity so it's muddy, but dries quickly.
