Well, I am currently in the market for a brand new Tomb Kings army. Tomb Kings were my first Warhammer Fantasy Army, but I never bought anything past a box of skellies and a tomb king and the book, but now I want to get back to them. The unit of sixteen were EXTREMELY well painted with a basic Prime-Ink-Drybrush-Highlight that made the models look just about as good as those in the book. I NEED to get that same look, but to do so I must find the old GW brown ink or at least something exactly the same or extremely similar. I don't want to use the GW washes, I want to use the inks. If anyone knows where I can find a site that sells the inks made by GW, or those of a company that make extremely similar inks I would be extremely thankful (not to mention willing to supply some rep, lol)
Thanks again in advance guys,
How come you dont want to use the washes again? Cant you just do 2 or so layers of the wash to get the same effect as the inks? Sorry I never used inks so wouldnt know.
vallejo still make inks, i use their model range and that is mostly identical to the old gw range so i would assume the inks are too..
three might be appropriate.. brown ink, sepia ink or skin wash ink
although when i did skellies like 10 years back i used chestnut ink for my skellies which doesn't seem to have a match well good luck
If you have a decent stationary shop by you try brown parker ink.
It comes in a jar (or at least it used to) and its quite thick so you can water it down to suit your needs.
I also used black ink from a cartridge fountain pen to ink the rocks on the battle board it had a slight blue tint to it when i watered it down and created a quite natural look.
it should save you a lot of money over buying GW washes as these are just waterd down ink with matt varnish in them.
everything in my local hobby store is super old so they still have a backstock of the inks
but i buy the washes anyway
