Hello and warm greetings from a first time poster!
Quick question: I am going to be painting a Tomb Kings army with a method reccomended in the Tomb Kings army book for painting skeletons. Unfortunately they reference their old line of Citadel Inks in a half water/half 'Brown Ink' wash, and in a thinned down 'Chestnut Ink' wash. Of the three new Citadel 'brownish' wash colors that are offered, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what would be the best equivalent for these washes?
Closest is probably devlan mud. However, a really good technique for ainting bone is now very simple. Spray white, (optionally paint bleached bone,) wash gryphonne sepia then drybrush lightly with white over the top. Dead easy! (If you'll excuse the pun.)

i think devlan mud would be the best choice

Hey dude, welcome to the forums. Yep, id agree with the other posters with the devlan mud wash. Its not as strong as brown ink but will give the same effect with a couple of washes ( minus the annoying shinyness).
For Chestnut ink, Gryphionne Sepia is the closest, but IIRC Chestnut Ink is a tad darker. Try mixing in some Devlan Mud in to the sepia wash and see how it goes.
Add me! Let me know your forum name too! =)
Awesome! Thanks for the help all. I will just go with the two washes you reccomended and thin it down until it works for me.
Hey - not sure exactly what end result you're going for - but have a look at images below. These are part of a white primer / 2 cost Sepia wash process that I'm using on my Necrons. The idea is to give a skeletal look - the models are given a final black wash once the armour is painted up too.
Might give you an idea of what Sepia will look like!
