First a bit of fluff. My Cadians are the 303rd enaged in ongoing operations against Chaos forces, either the Sabbat's or Abbadon's Crusade. Like the 13th Mordant ongoing exposure to the Arch Enemy has influenced the troops who have taken to wearing "trophies" from their dead enemies.
What I would think might be a nice touch is to add a few of the FW Rogue Militia heads, possibly to my Stormies, sort of the psychological warfare. I'll work on them a bit so they don't look to Chaos. But what do folks think? Could it work or would my men be on the irrevocable slide to darkness?
I would go with using heads from other guardsmen and maybe some chaos marauders. Maybe by a chaos fantasy or 40k sprue and put like a fallen Icon of Chaos at someone's feet. Flesh tones are also important, you want the men to appear either gaunt or their features darker than usual to represent the subtle effects of chaos.
I only intend to apply them to my stormies, they are infiltration and I think they would look kind of cool, I don't much like the metal Kasrkin so I will use other bits as well.
How would I adapt my skin tone? I have already painted the flesh Tallarn, Flesh wash, Dwarf Flesh and Dwarf/Elf flesh mix.
Cheers.This is true my Cadians are already watched by the Inquisition, some think it's only a matter of time before they go over to the other side what with blood rituals and all, things don't look good and rumous of radical inquisitors using their services on special missions. Either way they will never go home, the war has scarred them far to much.The first step on the road to damnation is the final step, but I digress.
Such is the life of the grunt, used, abused, dumped...

Use a combination of black wash and flesh wash watered down. That makes it look more dark and brooding.
Rotting flesh is also a good choice for the more gaunt and pale look.
Elf flesh, black/flesh was combo, re-highlight with elf flesh, and them bleached bone will also give you a stark and scary looking contrast.
Not to mention, there isn't much flesh on stormies, you could just repaint it.
