    I am starting Eldar (Ulthwe Strike force), and i was wondering if there was any Eldar pros or passer's by who could tip me up on how they paint wraithbone...

    It says in the codex to paint it bleached bone but that just sounds boring. Any tips would be gret. Thx

    FROM THE BOOK OF THE IMPERIUM:

    1. Thou shalt not go on a panty raid in the Adaptus Soritus temple.
    2. Thou shalt not flirt with Howling Banshees. They are the enemy.
    3. Thou shalt not refer to Battle Sisters as Bolter Biatches
    4. Darth Vader isn’t the son of Abaddon
    5. Thou shalt not reassemble a Necron into a washing machine

    I swear there was a topic EXACTLY like this, but I can't find it now. I'm getting old...
    There was a guide in the CSM codex about how to paint Horns and Tusks, that's how I imagined Wraithbone.

    I had an idea about painting it bleached bone, except adding a small amout of shining gold, then washing it with chestnut ink to give age.

    Any good? i got it from a friend. Im sure there r better ways though...

    You mean mixing Shining Gold with Bleached Bone, or adding a watered-down Gold after Bone? I dunno, the gold would be dulled down a lot by the Ink, so it would look like brass. Unless, of course, that&#39;s what you want&#33;

    use this kind of method
    First put bronzed flesh, then 7 parts BF and 3 parts bleached bone highlight
    5 part BF and 5 part BB
    3 part BF and 7 part BB
    then pure BB
    then maybe skull white highlight

    That method makes sense, but you would have to put a smaller and smaller coat on each time, and after 4 coats, you&#39;re almost not painting at all&#33;

    I paint wraithbone like this:

    Basecoat of Bronzed Flesh
    -Then a watered down wash of Bestial Brown (shades recesses)
    -Then Bronzed flesh leaving a small outline of Bestial brown showing
    -Then the main colour of Bleached Bone (and if you want to highlight with Skull White on edges)

    This is how I paint the wraithbone on my Ulthwe army.

    Yeah, quite recently they had a white dwarf where they showed how to paint up the new Seer council for the Eldar. I think it&#39;s the issue with the Balrog on the front, I&#39;m not for sure, but i know i own the issue.
    It&#39;s not Raymond Luxury Yacht, It&#39;s pronounced throat wobbler mangrove.

    my idea for wraithbone is this. You take bleached bone. paint on a nice, even layer of that. then take skull white and paint a watered down layer of that over the bleached bone. then take scorpion green, and paint a super thin layer of that over the wraithbone, starting thicker at the top (still very thin) and lessen it as you go down the wraithbone, this way it looks like all the powers of the warp are condensing in the wraithbone, tell me what you think of this idea please.
