    Would an Eldar army completely outfitted in wraithbone armor look cool? What accent colors would I need?

    Tips for Painting Wraithbone is located in the Eldar codex. =)


    EDIT:
    And yeah, done right it would look cool....specialy if you have a few now wraithbone spots on the models....so they dont all look the same...

    try some older looking (again i refer to the codex) bone for exarchs and aspect warriors maybe...

    Ok, thanks... older wraithbone on special units would be cool.

    Actually the tip for painting wraithbone in the eldar codex is specifically for sygils and runes.

    Basically painting writhbone well is time consuming and not something I would want to do with an entire army, I can hapily detail various methods of doing it at varrious speeds with various results, but if you want a cool look, then:

    Under coat white
    Base coat with thined desert yellow or snakebite brown.
    (optional: apply a glase of thinned chestnut ink or flesh wash)
    Using a wet palet, start with your basecoat colour and blend layers of increasingly mixed bleached bone, getting less covarge,
    once your colour has reached bleached bone, start to highlight by mixing in skull white
    glaze with a very thin wash of chestnut ink or flesh wash
    Everything you have been told is a lie!

    Hmmm... I may have to rethink this. 40 different blends for each model sounds like a hell of a lot of work. I'm not against making your army look good and spending time on it, but that's kinda crazy.

    I don&#39;t paint wraithbone with a smooth look, I paint it so that it looks like old, dry bone. It makes my eldar look mysterious.. Besides, it&#39;s refreshing to paint some rough textures after all the smoothness that everything else from the eldar requires.

    I just drybrush scorched brown over chaos black, then drybrush bleached bone, then brown wash, then finally a drybrush of skull white. I don&#39;t drybrush very &#39;dryly&#39; if you know what I mean. It&#39;s really easy and quite quick. The brown wash and skull white drybrush isn&#39;t neccesary really, it just makes it look a bit better.

    Hope this helps&#33;

    I generally apply a layer of bleached bone upon a black surface, and then use watered out ink upon it. This works very good with my wraithguards, as the ink makes shades around the spirit stones very nicely.
