I just got my Ogryn Flesh Wash, I use Reaper Tanned Fleshtones, comprising of Tanned shadows (To be replaced with the wash) Tanned skin, and tanned highlight.
My question now is this, How should I apply the paints in such a manner as to protray some of the stunning results I have seen here? Again, I am not looking for COMON quality, but something that doesn't look all screwed up, or even one solid fleshtone.
Should I apply thinned down Tanned Skin to the whole face, apply wash to the receses, then use the highlight on the ridges?
If so, what constitutes the portion that should be highlighted on bald heads? I end up highlighting the whole top of the head, and then it ends up looking almost like I have highlighted too much.
Only one mini have I painted that actually looks like a decent face, and that was with manual blending without the washes.
If anyone would be willing to highlight the areas they can see on the face that I should focus my attention on, with tips on how to do so, I would appreciate it.
You are certainly on the right track. You do see differences in the brow and forehead. Perhaps a bit of a dry brushing with a lighter color to bring out some high-lights.....

All of those articles are quite helpful as to painting faces. The first more so as it actually explains painting the face.

The last link here is from Lbursley from awesomepaintjob.com. It is a dark angel tutorial but he does go through painting the face and you can actually see where he puts the paint on the face.
Thank you for those links.
That deffinately answered the question of when I should use the wash, And showed a few techniques I hadn't even contemplated.
I will take a look at the You Tube Vid when the work hours unlock You Tube for my viewing. (Work restricts the hours certain sites can be visited)
