i dont know how to paint imperial guard faces and flesh?
Right now I just paint my faces elf flesh and let it go at that cuz I'm too lazy to do much more.
Paint it a flesh colour, hit it with a flesh wash, progressive lighter highlights, do detail like eyes and mouth afterwards. Very easy to do because they are so small.
Heres how I paint the faces on my SM's. Undercoat in Skull White. Then paint a consistent coat of bleached bone. Paint the Eyes/teeth Skull white again if you need to (dont worry about being messy as you will clean this up when your shading) then make a mix of Dark Flesh & Bleached Bone and put a few drops of water to make it a ink. Just paint a few coats of ink in the usual areas you shade, and some of the raised areas, then highlight with bleached bone and a little bit of white.
You can start with a base of dark flesh, and progressivly highlight that with mixed out brown tones, mix it with bronzed flesh or elf flesh or dwarven flesh for that sake.
Make a lighter and lighter tone until you reach the skin colour you want...

I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
OK.. Here's how I do it:
The undercoat doesn't really matter since Bronzed Flesh goes just as well on both black and white. The only difference is that black makes it slightly darker.
So anyway... Paint the whole face (or arms or whatever) Bronzed Flesh and leave to dry. Then provide the shading by using watered down Flesh Ink/Wash. When the ink is dry highlight the 'high' areas with bleached bone. For arms and such this should be enough. Now for the eyes and mouthes:
Paint the eyes and mouthes (including teeth) black and leave to dry. Now carefully paint the teeth and eyes white making sure there's still a rim of black between them and the skin-coloured areas. Finally paint a tiny dot of black into the white area of the eyes. This part is the most tricky because you want both pupils to be looking the same way.
This is my approach and it works fine.
Okay here's the most simple one, I use this for me CSM:
done. Pick out eyes in a lighter colour, with a tiny black dot in the center.
- paint rotting flesh or bleached bone
- paint a heavily watered down coat of some bubonic brown, snakebite leather or chaos black over that
Ze titles yez...

My method is more or less the same as Bobahat except for my highlight i use elf flesh. I think i looks just fine.

i think i should of made it clearer by saying that i need help with catachan jungle fighter flesh
Here's how i paint the flesh of my Ikoli Sentries (Urban fighters Btw)
I undercoat the model black.
The skin is painted with Dwarf Flesh, leaving any wrinkles, creases and recesses black (between muscles, either side of nose, so on).
Then i highlight with Elf flesh.
Teeth and eyes are picked out with white. Then i paint a vertical line in the eyes, because when i paint dots it makes them look insane... :lol:
What kind of Jungle fighters are you gonna use?
Just your basic "Apocalypse Now" style dudes, in jungle camo?
Or somesort of variation?
Basically, what kind of camo will their clothes have?
