Hi guys im about to start painting my lamenters army, i have 2 months to do it and am planning on trying out some of "that weathering" on them, but before i do all that i have a pretty simple question,
how would you paint the dirty yellow that they have? the only official pics i can see seem to be a mustard colour, and look slightly greenish to me.
i would like to avoid them looking like imperial fists as much as possible
I'd suggest to work from a black undercoat and work with more beige colours, with perhaps just a little yellow mixed in. I don't know the right name but there is the beige GW foundation paint that seems like the bast candidate for a base colour, I''d mix perhaps 10% yellow in there and see how that looks. the beige will tone down the yellow to a more 'dirty' shade, and the foundation paint's high pigmentation will ensure a good coating on black (probably only needing a layer or two/three).
Maybe the simple answers are the best ones?
I think I would start from gretchin green as a foundation basecoat then add a little desert yellow or Iyanden darksun to get the hilights. A 50% watered down Sepia wash would help too.

thanks man, that was the exact scheme i was thinking of, i just hope it goes on well, i tried a few uyandens, and while it works, it looks like a dirty imperial fist tbh.
