I just need a little advice. I'm looking at painting some of my first bald and Ogryn models, and I was wondering how people go about painting shaved scalps and facial hair regions? It has to be more complicated than just a layer of gray.
it is a difficult effect to do and commonly looks like a dirty or poorly painted model, I would, if at all possible stay away from it, drybruishing is probabl better than blending for the effect but you would have problems with recesses, go for a grey or a darker tone of flesh
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Or maybe a lighter tone of flesh if those parts haven't tanned yet. Or maybe a nasty sunburn.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

Its not so much just painting grey on. I did a couple of very watery coats of grey and it worked out good. Just make sure you put it where the eye would expect it, and the eye does the work for you. I haven't tried this yet, but a friend suggested lightly stippling grey on it. Hmmm...

u know how 2 paint tau:yes:
I've seen it done before - it usually requires a darker grey basecoat and then a slight brushing of lighter grey over the top - try to go with lines, or, if you can manage it, tiny dots. Although i'd test it on something first - it could go horribly wrong. Also, try rubbing the edges of the paint while it's still wet with your finger - it can help smudge the grey into the skintone a little better, along with some blending this can achieve great results.Er...netspeak and spam?Originally Posted by necron boi
The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

It's not very difficult. It's a question of mixing in a bit of dark grey with the flesh colour you are using. I have used it a lot.
