Hi, I have some ogres, but I don't really know how to properly paint them. I have goblins so its not that big of a deal for a skin tone, dark then light green. But for ogres they are more important since there are only a few in a army i want them to look good. OK, the color I want is like a humanish skin. I dont want the grey colors. What is some advice for painting their skin like humans? I tried a way today on one model but didnt like the way it turned out, it wasnt horrible, but i didnt really like it.
Human flesh? There are many ways of achieving this look, some are longer than others and require much more effort. A quick method might be:
Tanned flesh base; wash with dev' mud (or a brown wash); highlight with dwarf flesh.
base dark flesh; mix with tanned fleshed, leaving the deepest recesses dark flesh. Then wash the skin with a brown, followed by a mix of tanned and dwarf flesh hghtlight the skin, again leaving the recesses shaded with the brown wash. Hightlights of dwarf and elf flesh used on the highest parts of the skin, with a final highlight of skull white and elf flesh for the very tipes of things - noses, cheek bones etc.
A really nice, quick and simple way to paint skin is:
Orgyn Flesh Wash
Tallarn Flesh highlights
...then mix in Bleached Bone to you TF if you want to go any brighter.
Works great if you're worried about doing lots of 'scary' mixing, or if you just want an army finished, now, thanks.

I ll try some of those. I tried tallarn flesh base, then devlan mud, then I was told drybrush the dwarf flesh, it doesnt look really bad or anything its just not as clean of a job. and not quite as bright.
