i have no idea how to paint horns, i know (i think) you add layers and stuff. but is ther an easier and faster way of doing horns?
any help is appreciated.
If fast is what you want paint bleached bone and go over with brown/chestnut ink. It won't win any painting competitions but you're the one that asked for fast.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

yeah ink it. sucks but thats fast for you.
The way i paint my horns to give em a black-ish look tanscending from a grey/bleached bone is this. First paint the whole horn a 75:25 Chaos Black:Codex Grey, this should probaly be a black color with a tinge of grey. Then put the mix to about50:50 and paint a real thin coat abou halfway down, try to make the edges a little uneven so you cant clearly see the tansition line. Then take that mix and add about 25% bleached bone to it and paint 1/4 of the horn in the same manor. If done correctly it looks amazing and very realistic.
There are some great pics that show good results if you look at an old edition of the Black Gobbo on the USGW site. Look for the edition with the mumakil on it. It might say how, I don't remember...

I love to paint horns and bone. This is how I do:
Thinned Bleached bone (1 paint to 3 water)
When it has dried you give it a wash(1 paint to 20 water) of Beastial Brown and then add some darker color like Black in the wet rescesses. The wet paint will "suck" the black to the right places.
When this has dried you add some more Bleached Bone to the higher areas and finish it all by adding some Skull white to the extreme edges.
