    In which colors do you guys paint your Tomb Kings? Like GW?

    I do it almost like GW did it in the book (not same quality... )
    But one thing is really different: Insted of the blue/green outlines, I use Scorpion Green. It really stands out, but none of those who have seen it, thinks it looks unrealistic.

    (I'll get you a picture if you like)

    Green is good

    I use regal blue, instead of turqoise and sunburst yellow in place of red.

    i also paint my bones much browner, with a base coat of dark flesh.

    that said, im not great at painting, but khemri's easy cause of all the drybrushing.

    I&#39;ve been boring with my skellies, bleached bone for their shields, gold trim + weapons metals + hawk turquoise for spear shafts / bows.

    To make my TG stand out though, I&#39;ve done them chaos black with silver (chainmail) trim / weapons.
    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    I wanted to be different, so I used the following color scheme:

    -Bleached bone for the skeletons
    -Gold trim for their headbands and shields
    -Scab red (highlighted with blood red) for the cloth part of their headbands and the front of their shields
    -Black for the spear shafts
    -Boltgun metal for the spear tips and occaisional body armor

    The red/gold color scheme looks great...plus my favorite color is red.

    Don&#39;t worry, I have only started one model so far... But I only got my TK last month and I am trying to do a lot of conversions, plus I got a fair few second hand so I need to strip paint first.

    I really like the look of the blue and gold that GW used so that is what I am doing mostly. I don&#39;t know why, but the GW Chariot bodies are red, I&#39;m not doing that. Mine will be blue with the gold trimmings, I just need to stop procrastinating and find some time. And try and make them look significantly different from my blue High Elves I guess...

    I did mine like GW too, I haven&#39;t quite got the art of high-lighting with skull white down to an art yet though. Just finished Khalida actually, five hours of grusome work nad she looks pretty good, I&#39;ll put a pic of her in the Gallery.
    In the end there is only war.
