Pesky Orks

I am having problems with these orks. Firstly, I should not be painting them at all - I have not played 40k since 5th edition, it's a game that is just not on my radar. Seeing the recent releases made me dig out my old collection and I couldn't resist putting the finishing touches to a mob of tankbustas.

The main problem is the colour scheme. Green skin plus yellow armour is a potent combination, adding red rockets into the mix was probably one vibrant colour too many. I need to change something, probably make the red a more de-saturated colour, or just black, maybe a few touches of red here and there.

The final problem is what to do with them. The logical thing would be to sell them and put the money earned to my current gaming needs. But, I'm not sure I can let them go. They have such character in the sculpts. Silly? Yes. Over the top? Yes. But how could you not like these chaps? Even if they do have a jarring palette?

You know, I have the same problem. I love 40k models but have lost interest in the game.

Maybe I will persuade my gaming buddy to dig out his Tau or Marines for old time's sake. We had some good games, then just moved on to others and never really came back.
