    Painting Bone Armour

    Hey ppls,

    So I've got a kunundrum for you all. And its space marine armour, except the only
    thing thats bugging me is transitioning to bleached bone. I've gone through several
    models already and I've tried the following.

    Basecoat black
    Drybrush bestial brown or scorched brown
    Paint out details in armour with desert yellow
    Lightly drybrush with B.B.
    Then highlight with white.

    I've tried this method and I cant seem to get smooth results. I've got three-four
    different browns to use as base and I'm wondering if there's any other forms
    of painting bone armour so its interesting. Got any bytes of info? Please drop
    some comments.

    The way I painted my Sons of Dorn is as follows:

    Base coat of Beasty Brown (vallejo Game color)
    Bone White - VGC
    Ivory highlights - Vallejo Model Color

    Transition works well enough. I added some inks to "Stain" the figures but it is not neccesary. I think your problems might be drybrushing. Drybrushing tends to not be smooth.



    Cheers,

    Yeah uh, drybrushing. ha ha. I know that,

    Slorak, I like your style of bone but I'm trying to get them more bone-ish looking.

    Can you elaborate a bit more?

    I am not quite sure what information you are looking for. As to my technique - I thin my paints and use a layering techniqe starting with the darkest color and work up. I brushed vallejo Model color smoke into the recesses before doing the ivory. Other than that - pretty straight forward.

    If you have any specific questions I would be more than happy to answer them.

    Cheers,

    -Mike

    This is how I shod do it.

    1. White base coat

    2. A coat of Blenched Bone

    3. Wash with a brown + yellow mix

    4. One more coat Blenced Bone

    5. highlight with a Blenced Bone + skull white mix.

    6. Maybe some extreme highlights with pure white or Blenced Bone + white with more white then the last layer.

    This shod give you a darker bone color then the one Slorak is using. I think that what you wanted?

    Hope it works out for you
