    Painting Scheme for Space marines

    Hey i just finished painting and testing my Battle for Macragge starter Marines and i dont like the colour i did for a few (Liche Purple, Chaos Black) of them, i was thinking of Red and a cream colour, or cream colour and green!
    If you have any suggestions then tell me.
    Also the main reason why i put this in was because I wanted help making a good cream colour, kinda like bleached bone but not that dark, kinda like the colour most terminators use Just post your help =)

    Red and bone/cream would go well together.

    For the bone color you could always add white to it to lighten it. I would start with a base of brown (maybe graveyard earth), then your bone color, followed by bone mixed with white. Of course the more colors you mix and layer the smoother the transition and the more vibrant it will be.

    Cheers,

    If you are painting reds and a lot of it - I recommend starting with a white base. The reds will be more vibrant and cover better. Barring that start with a darker red/brown base and highlight up to a brighter red.
