Looking for a really realistic 40k orc skin, u know something with a bit of colour round the mouth... in short something that looks real good!
:x- a bit like this little fella (nice green)
Also preferably using GW citadel paints.
Try catachan green highlightd with camo green. If you want drker skin was the catachan with a mix of black and brown inks. then highlight it catachan and a mix of catachan/camo.
ooo ya.... Riff!
For mine i prefer a darker look. I went with
Dark Angels Green
Goblin Green-light dry brush
Warpaint-Enchanted Blue for Boys
Warpaint-Enchanted Blue/Skull bite for Savage orcs
40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)
First off you need to know how to shape muscles then (Y) . .
1 base coat with DA green
2 start shaping with catchacan
3 mix catachan with camo green and highlight the catch
4 water down camo green and do very small highlights with it
Prrestoooo realalistic orc skin
Ill get pics if i can
I can't give you specific color names, but:
* Basecoat in medium green
* Wash with bluegreen ink, making sure to get lots in the creases and crevices
* Paint highlights in the original green
* Paint smaller highlights on top of the highlights with yellow-green
For a smoother effect, slowly mix the yellow-green with the green as you work up the highlights. I tend to take the highlights up a lot to make them really lurid so you can see them from a distance.
Personally, I find ork flesh to be a lot of fun and very rewarding to paint. People are very picky about how human flesh tones go, but turn skin green and you can experiment with lots of different approaches without anyone saying 'That's not right!'.

what i do is start with a black base and use lighter and lighter shade of greed with dry brushing and the lighter i go the less paint i load on the brush
it sounds kinda loose and inaccurate but it makes for a natural look
I start with Dark Angels and mix in Scorpion in increasing amounts for each highlight. This makes for a vibrant green that isn't too disimilar to the icon you've shown.
No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
