can someone tell me which colours i need to paint Plague marines, and give me some hints?
Well heres what I did, you base coat the armour catachan green, then you add a heavy highlight of dwarf flesh, then highlight with bleached bone then you ink them brown, but its not the official color painting method but it came out pretty good
The Predator Lingers forth. Suddenly the sound of several wipping sounds can be heard far off into the distance, a second later the once mighty Predator ignited with flames. "Sir what was that" The srgt replied "Its those damn Broadsides"
Hear the wip, fear the Broadside.
A tip is to search the forum and the internet for "death guard", you're guaranteed to find what you seek.
Undercoat black, basecoat Dark Angels green, Drybrush Camo green, Wash with chestnut ink. Looks real good and is simple. You can add extra highlights of Bleached Bone or Rotting Flesh if you like.
I am pleased with the color scheme that I am currently using - though I am looking at cutting down the color transitions. Here is basically what I have been using:
base coat of japan uniform (vallejo model color), mixed with camo green
Ink wash of brown ink
highlighted up with camo green
streaked a bit with camo green mixed with dead flesh
streaked more with dead flesh
streaked more with dead flesh/bonewhite
minor highlights with bone white
I don't have my exact formulations with me (at work! but I did write down my formula. I plan on using a darker green base in the future and then using the brown ink wash and highlight from there rather than the complex formula I have been using with the japan uniform. Dirt areas of the armor were done with a brown glaze or smoke wash.
