Painting a layer of dwarf flesh highlighted by elf flesh then a final highlight of bleached bone.
This is what i have trouble with because i dont know what colors to use, i was thinking brown because i am going with the classic green/brown woodland colors for my wood elves.
Do these paints sound good? Any pictures/advice would be much aprreciated.
I think that blonde hair looks good on brown / green elves since it provides a much needed bright color on an otherwise dark model. I've tried white, gray, and orange colored hair as well to help break up the monotony.
For their skin I use Tanned Flesh, Dwarf Flesh, and a last highlight of Elf Flesh. It works pretty well (and looks like *this*), but I've been thinking of trying Flesh Wash in between the Tanned and Dwarf.
Here are some phenomenal examples of painted Wood Elves:

I go tanned flesh, dwarf flesh, elf flesh, elf flesh and bleached bone.
I might wash it with a very watery tanned flesh. A light wash.
I do blond and blue hair, sometimes red and grey/white with my Wood Elves.
Vermin brown, vermin brown+kommando khaki, highlight up to komando khaki and wash with black.
Vermin brown, hilight with a few drybrushes of vermin brown+increasing amounts of golden yellow.
They look darn nice and very efly, whilst not taking very long. I can post pictures if anyone's interested.
Up, up and away!
I am interested in pictures, for a fantasy army i am stuck between Wood Elves, Dwarves or Tomb kings
But please post your wood elf models! 8X
my elves hair is generally brown, black or grey, i havent tried blonde or white, too much contrast
Skin ive got 2 methods:
Snakebite Leather > Bronzed Flesh > Elf Flesh > Bleached Bone
Bronzed Flesh > Flesh Wash > Bronzed Flesh > Elf Flesh > White
Dark Flesh or Bestial Brown > mix with some yellow or Bubonic Brown for layered highlights
Black > Codex Grey > Fortress Grey
Codex Grey > Fortress Grey > White
