    stu, cut down on the emoticons aight, and yes you can buy numerous flesh colours from gw.

    there is also a sight somewhere showing how to mix every colour starting with just red green and blue (i think) but i forget what it was.

    Although i would recommend buying dwarf flesh from a Games Workshop store, in a pinch, mix together Blood Red and Skull white to get a pink, then add a little goblin green untill you get a flesh colour.

    i found that the best skni colour is red gore mixed with bleached bone 60:40, then drybrush with bleached bone.
    if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.

    You can buy a s***load of flesh colours from GW, and I advise you to go this way, unless you are very good at mixing specific shades of paint.

    Well GW make 3 caucasian Flesh colours
    *gasp* You heard right a whole 3&#33;&#33;&#33;
    They are dwarf flesh, bronzed flesh and elf flesh
    Dwarf flesh is a very orange tinted flesh
    Elf Flesh is very light and pinkish
    Bronzed flesh is yellowy

    Then there is the negriod flesh colours
    Tanned and Dark flesh, Dark flesh is a deep reddy brown and I havent seen tanned flesh yet, but it is lighter than dark.

    Last of all there is the Necromantic skin tones of which GW makes two
    Pallid flesh and rotten flesh. Pallid is very pinkish and rotten has a distinctive green tint.

    Well, since you are just starting off, the easiest way I have found to do it is elf flesh, then flesh wash, then highlight it again with elf flesh, leaving sunken areas like brow bridge and the area right around the eyes without a second coat of elf flesh. It works well and gives a respectable look. You won&#39;t win any painting awards with it, but it is quick and easy and looks good on the table.

    Another option that might be cool for blood angels is white goth skin(they&#39;re vampires after all). I use two different ways of making this kind of skin. The easiest is to paint the skin skull white, leaving the eyes black, then ink it with thinned down black ink. This makes the skin look quite real.

    Another method is to start with a basecoat of codex grey, followed by first a highlight with fortress grey, then a final one with skull white.

    surely if he is starting, a quick and easy method is just flat colout elf flesh or summat.....
