So I'm currently building and painting a Tomb King Army for my Local GW. And was kind of wondering how you TK players speed paint/professionally paint(ed) your army? Unlike WE I can't really poll this and have you vote on a particular scheme (oh well, unfortunate) =(.
Anyway Here's what mine look like a simple white primer black wash with bleached bone overbrush (basically just a wetter dry brush) red, gold, and bronze for the rest.
Now lets hear how you do it, see some pics etc. (just think its an interesting topic), that and I still have 3000 points to go!
My general paint scheme is a basecoat of skull white, I then go over the whole model with a liberal wash of chestnut ink (if you can find this stuff, it's one of my favorite inks). After than I drybrush with bleached bone and a final (very light) dry brush of skull white.
Sorry I don't have better pictures at the moment. Can't find my camera.
The special units I have are better IMO:
Check out the WIP link in my sig for pictures. I went for more of a dark look, so I've done black base, with a ~75/25 Codex Grey/Black Highlight and then a highlight of 90/10 Bleached Bone/Black.
I feel method is pretty speedy. I just need to make the time to continue painting.
Well, just check my WiP Thread (easy to find) and you'll see how I do. Someone asked the question about how I paint Skellies (bone) in the Thread, right after posting my TP - so search for thatv part of the Thread
Base black, careful drybrush white, details Flesh Wash (old colour, I know ) - different schemes for different kinds of bones, much depending on what I've decided the bones to have been through - alot of fluff for each Skeleton It makes every painted model more of a person/character instead of a soldier...

WiP TK Army!
I use the same method as hockeyman, except as I am no longer able to find chestnut ink easily I have started using gryphonne sepia in it's stead. I think it works very well.

Spray white, cover in devlan mud and dry brush with bleeched bone. Shields and detal in blue (LO blue almost) and metal in gold. Very quick, but it still takes me ages to get it done...

For my skeletons I don't use as much detail as this but still get decent results, (I will post pictures when I take some decent ones ), I just spray Chaos Black and dry brush bleached bone, this is my favourite look to be honest. And then brown for the bows / spears / insides of shields and gold for blades.
Btw, that Carrion looks amazing!
A dead easy way I've seen is gryphonne sepia over skull white. Doesn't need any more work after that, looks great and you can churn them out like nobody's business!

I use pale flesh, brown ink and a white(ish) drybrush on mine.
The quickest way to paint any army is to do it on the sprue. Personally, I'm really anal about removing all the mold lines so it's not for me though.
Dipping is also a good way to churn out a good looking army quickly.
