Im getting back into painting after about 10 years off.
In the Chaos 40k codex there is a color scheme for a CSM group called the Warp Ghosts. I really like the look of them and am thinking of useing that scheme(perhaps inverted tho)
Unfortunatly I have been unable to duplicate the colors, just doesnt seem to be a rotted flesh no matter what ratio of white/black I try.
Am I missing a wash somewhere? or just clueless on my mixing? Any help would be appreciated.
p.s. yes I am familer with shading/blending/drybrushing/highlighting. I just seem to really suck at mixing colors
I think they were primed black, given a once over with some dark grey and then a succesion of higlights with lighter greys, white and rottting flesh, not necessarily in that order, the rotting flesh probably isnt the last layer of colour.
I think you'll need to thin down the rotting flesh though, as it tends to be... kinda green in my experience.
yeah, green was the main issue. I'll thin it out a bit more and give it another go.
Maybe mix in some kommando khaki or a light brown before thinning. This will make it less green.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
First, I want to thank you both for the tips, the thinning and the addition of a touch of brown got me closer to the colors I was looking for than I was able to come on my own.
That said, now that I have a couple of models painted it isn't striking me as a really good army theme.
The individual models look good, and I will probably keep them for diaramas (sp?) but I don't think it will look good en masse.
Thank you again, even tho I won't be painting a ton of models this way it feels good to have conquered the challenge it posed.
