Hi everyone! I am looking for some help to figure out a vampire counts paint scheme found in the army book.
Page 68. It's the one in the middle with a grey-blue color for the bones.I scanned the model, but the quality is poor.
It's really the bone color scheme that I need advice on.
Looks like a light, brown base, (I don't have the paints on me but maybe a basecoat of Dheneb and a bit of Khemri or Graveyard mixed as a midcoat)
Then a fine, very light layer of blue on the prominent features, very delicate so to give the tint rather than a streak, then over the majority of the blue with a white drybrush to highlight and still allow some of the blue to show through.
I think the key thing is not to go overboard with the blue and end up with woad laden skellies
Fantasy: Wood Elves, Dark Elves, Beastmen and Tomb Kings.
LotR: Misty Mountains and Rohan
I'm going to have to disagree with 8people on this one. To me, it looks like codex grey, washed with delvan mud, then a thin wash of asurman blue. Then re-hilighted with codex grey then fortress grey. I'm not sure how blue or brown it will turn out, because I dont have much experience with asurman blue wash. Do some experimenting until you get the colour you want. Also try 8people's scheme, she might be right.
As apposed to using codex grey and fortress, try Shadow and Spacewolf grey for more blue grey hue.
Experimentation works well, if i find some time i may test these ideas out as this looks like a nice change from dirty brown dusty bones.
on further inspection i may believe it still is bone colored so mixing the shadow and space wolf with bleached bone may bring it back to a bone like color
then again it may just be washed or even painted on there, id have to look at the new book (only have the old vamp counts book)
