After deciding black and white for my army looked too basic I tried a variety of colours and settled on this.
The helmet, shoulders and fabrics of every aspect will be painted in that aspects colours. So white for the dire avengers, yellow for the dragons etc, while the body suit will remain blue and brown/green throughout.
Here's my problem, the blue highlights fine, but the damned brown green bits just wont look good for me! I created the colour using snakebite leather mixed with black, so why it turned green is a mystery! Highlighting it in snakebite makes it look green, and highlighting in goblin green makes it look brown, anyone got any advice?
in my experience, snakebite leather with white becomes almost orange, a bit like the mud that forms in iron-heavy waters... I don't know how to explain it, but it is orange-ish... I use it to paint dirt in claws and bones.
I guess it also depends on the amount of white you use...
problem is the base colour (mixing snakebite leather with black) as others have pointed out, If you want brown far better to start with a darker brown (scortched) then blend throgh snakebite leather into desert yellow mate
