Pale skin
So I started building my Night Lords without helmeted heads now and I can paint tan skin fairly well but I wanted to but I want them to have pale skin. The only problem is I don't know what colors to use. I've seen gray but I don't like the look. I want to go for more of a pale vampire look. Any tips would be awesome. :ok:

Somehow I think bleach bone would fit somewhere into that pain scheme. I will get back to you on exactly where in the process it would go

i think if you wan't a sick pale colour i would do calthan brown, followed by 50:50 mix of bleached and calthan, followed by a light highlight of bleached bone, followed by a blue wash, or change calthan for space wolves grey.

How I paint pale flesh:

1. Black Undercoat
2. Even coat of Bronzed Flesh
3. Layer on Elf Flesh leaving Bronzed Flesh in the recesses
4. Mix Elf Flesh with Pallid Flesh and highlight. 50/50 mix.
5. Highlight with Pallid Flesh on the raised areas. Cheeks, lips, brow.

You can also give them that pale/pallid look by washing the flesh with thinned purple and red ink around the eyes and mouth before Step 3. Continue on with the steps after that. You can also use thinned blue ink.

Good luck and good gaming,
