Hey, all. I've been having a really terrible time painting my skeletons. I've tried several different approaches (mostly undercoating white and applying some sort of brown wash). Each time, the model turns out looking an odd shade of orange, which is definitely not what I want.
I'm sure your guys' skeletons look great, so if someone has a good way to paint them, that would be great. (I've got the foundations and washes)
White I did with mine is undercoated them white, wash them with chestnut ink or the appropriate wash, and then drybrush them with bleached bone. Quick and easy and looks reasonably good.

base coat black, khemri brown foundation for the bone, bleached bone for the bones; and skull white for the highlights, coat with devlan mud wash, or badab black.
white undercoat, chestnut ink wash, dry brush of bleached bone and possible highlights with skull white. pretty simple and they look pretty good
Black undercoat, heavy drybrush of bleached bone, mixture of flesh wash/black ink (any dark brown ink/wash would probably work, experiment with different shades by altering the %, remembering that black is very overpowering so only a tiny bit changes the colour a lot), followed by a final drybrush of bleached bone.
This is what it looks like, a lot of people have probably seen this pic before. The one on the far right is done with a different technique.
Base spray White (fine coating). Kommando Khaki basecoat, Inked Brown, KK Drybrush, Bleached Bone Drybrush to highlight.
Simple and effective That was my most recent scheme ofcourse... a lot of my skellies used older painting schemes so they vary in colour lol.
1) Spray them black
2) Base coat 70% Deneb stone 30% desert yellow
That is what I did and i am happy with how they turned out
Spray them with black.. heavy dry brush bleached bone, very very very light drybrush of white.. i can paint like 30 in the blink of an eye.

spray with white
apply brown ink
drybrush with bleached bone
drybrush with skull white
it's very easy, and it looks ok. if you're careful and take your time, you can make it look really good.

Guess I'll bite at this too. I start mine with a base coat of black, and then simply overbrush successively lighter layers of brown. It's probably not as fast as inking, but a simple technique that I'm comfortabble with. My skeletons are a good bit darker than most though.
Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains
