Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey everyone, I just received my Death Korps stuff from from forge world and have so far painted a couple grenadiers in the 143rd siege regiments color scheme from IA:5. I've run into a problem though.. I've change my mind on the color scheme and want to do the 5th seige regiment color scheme instead. My question here is how would I go about it? The armour is straight black but the coat is a somewhat a lighter colored black tone like dark charcoal or some thing. Does anyone here know how to paint this? What colors to mix to get a good basecoat and what colors for highlights. If these were regular cadians I'd sacriface 100 to experiment to find the right mix but these are forge world things and I dont think stripping resin is as safe as plastic or metal, you know what I mean? Any comments or advice would greatly be appreciated. Thank You.
well you could practice on some cadians...but anyway maybe try like codex grey washed with black ive been wanting to experiment with a simple way other than extreme highlighting for black but well i dont have any black to paint, but this could work if your going for a lighter blackish color
hope you get some more solid feed back buddy
