    Bleached bone

    I am going to be painting bleached bone space marines and was looking for either peoples advice for doing so or possibly a link to painting bleached bone.

    I think something like you would paint bleached bone skeletons is how I would like them to turn out.

    My upcoming blog in the works:

    If you want them like skeletons use a black paint as a base then wetbrush in dark shades of browns then drybrush in lightening shades of white.

    If you are going for a bright white army then I would start with like a gray maybe some codex grey mixed with some skull white. Use that as a base to form the shadows and work your way up with brighter whites.

    If you want a darker white colored army I would try experimenting with mixing greens and browns with white. Or just a base coat of white then you can wash it and dry brush some highlights on.

    Quick 'n dirty method of skeletal look painting:

    Prime white.

    Mix diluted badab black and gryphonne sepia 50/50
    (black is diluted 1:4 wash:water)

    mix might need more /less water by preference.

    wash the model..

    Highlight / touch up with Bleached bone.

    Done.


    Just one way to get lots done quickly, if that's your thing.


    p.s
    Swap black for devlan mud if you want less contrast.

    You could try the technique that I used here. With a bit more highlighting it would look great on Space Marines (or Deathwing).

    You could try using Dheneb stone as a basecoat, its a similar colour with much greater coverage.

    I was going to suggest Ravendove's technique actually until I saw that he'd posted it already

    Seriously, though, I highly recommend it. It's very effective.
