    Hey. With the release of the new codex i have some Plage Marines in my army and have decided to represent them with models painted in the cleaved color scheme.

    It can't be that hard can it? I mean just some greyish colors and some red/green blobs around the joints and voila?

    Did you just answer your own question?

    I'd say it looks like bleached bone with a touch of tentacle pink, then highlighted up to skull white.

    For the aging spots, that looks like beastial brown and hawk turquoise.

    I am just not seeing the pink in there... Besides pink is not very nurglish... heh... Pale flesh is about as pink as I would expect this to be...

    I haven't poked around but you may want to peruse the GW website to see if they have a citadel paint recipe for them considering their inclusion in the new codex.

    I am sure you can get a similar effect by basing with bone white or pale flesh, inking with a light brown or black ink wash and then highlighting with a light grey.

    Cheers,

    It looks like Deneb Stone to me.

    A light wash of Kemri brown may have been added to the recesses then re paint the flat parts deneb stone. Highlight the armour edges with white.

    The ooze looks like dark angel's green and maybe snakebite leather or dark flesh.

    Maybe it's the monitors, but they look kind of a wan pink to me.

    "Pale flesh coloured armour with little metallic detailing left. Sickly liquids flow from his soft armour and battle damage. On his left shoulder pad there are three bulges in the armour forming the symbol of Nurgle that oozes foul liquids even more frequently than the rest of his armour."

    Pale flesh is the way to go.

    I don't think there is any pink in there really. I looked at them very closely in the book and there is no pink. The red/blood that has been added is affecting the other colour because it is so pale and stronger colours 'bleed' onto weaker colours in this case making it look pinkish. If they were pink they would look terrible as pink and red clash.

    What exact colours were used, I'm not sure. It seems to be some kind of grey as the horns are a lighter colour and seem to have bleached bone and or white on them. A very light grey seems to be what it is but not too light as they have a lighter highlight. I think you should consider creating a colour scheme that is similar to what you see here. You have to remember that these Marines have been very carefullly photographed which is changing how they look slightly.

    You could paint them ghostly grey (if they still do that colour, I haven't looked at greys in ages). You could then shade them with a slightly darker grey and then highlight them with white. I think you should consider that the GW painter who did them was given several days to sit about doing them and they paid him to do it. Basically they look simple but in a way above average so I don't think they will be quick to paint. You can try other ways to do them though.

    I would suggest you try an off-white or grey. Take a look at the foundation paints for a colour to use as the colour used may be one of them. To get that effect you will need to completely paint them in the desired colour and then carefully shade in the cracks. The 'blood' seems to be red gore with some black painted with it to make it look oily and gross.

    I think that whatever colours you chose you should remember the concept behind this lot seems to be to make them look ghost-like or undead. Stick with that and you should be able to progress further in doing them, especially when it comes to tackling big boys like Dreadnoughts.

    Using colours such as pale flesh is also a good idea. You should really take a couple of cheap expendable models, they don't even have to be Marines. Try out effects on them until you get what you want.
