Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm planning to paint my dark eldar wyches soonish, so I need to paint the face also. Since I don't have much of an idead of how to paint a face, it being pale for that matter, how do you or would you paint a pale face, with the layers and all?
Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks.

I always undercoat the face scorched brown, follow this with a layer of dwarf flesh, then raised areas in elf flesh followed by rotting flesh and pehaps rotting flesh with a bit of white for highlights (cheek bones mainly).
White eyeballs and teeth, good to go. This is presuming you use citadel paints?
Thanks heaps for the reply,
Yeah I do use citadel, and Ill give ur method a shot, but before I do do you have a pic of one of your models with the painting that you used? If you don't, that's fine, just wanting to see what it looks like.
Oh, and repped lol
I don't have one to hand no, but I will try and take a quick snap between leaving the library this afternoon and going to work, hope it works out for you mate, and no worries.
On my Brets I used Dwarf Flesh with Ogryn Flesh wash and the same flesh with a little white as a highlight. On my elves I used Light Elven Flesh with the same wash and lighter highlight. Very quick and easy..
Currently, I am doing some Vampires with a 50/50 mix of white and Light Flesh with a thin wash of 50/50 Ogryn and Badab black. It took me a couple tries to get the wash thinned out enough to look how I wanted, but they look really pale and ghastly. I will try to post a pic of this new one...

I have decided to use the method shown on the GW website, but still thanks for the pics of the awesome minis.
To paint palid flesh coat the face liberally with bleached bone, deneb stone or astronomican grey.
You may need 2 coats to get a good covering.
Next wash with ogryn flesh or sepia.
Finally hilight raised areas with the base colour again. You can add a final hilight by mixing a little white into the base colour if you like.
