I am not the best painter (really i dont enjoy painting that much). But i want to use some empire militia troops as ghosts for my WH 40K army (codex Necromancer from this site)
But i have no clue how to paint them so they obviously look like ghosts.
Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? All i can think of is just painting them pure skull white but i doubt this will get a good ghost effect
I would go for something similar to what GW did for the undead ghosts for LOTR. I would definatly start with white and then uses lots of different washes to get the job done. If you dont use the washes, then i would start with a tourquoisy color, and then build your way up to a bleached bone on all the exteme high points.... Tourquoise and white are both good colors for ghosts...

From what I've seen, there's two ways that will look good.
One is startting from a greish base color and dry brush your way up to skull white.
The other is a bit of color. Like start with a base of light blue, green, or even reds and dry brush up to white.
K thank you for the advice ill start with a hawk turqoise then dry bush with skull white
IMO the simplest way to get a good and effective ghosty look.
Prime White-Wash with extremely thinned down Hark Turqoise-Wash eith extremely thinned down Dark angels green-(continue with any other shades of blue/green you want) Then lightly drybrush on skull white.
