So basically use dheneb stone, then use thinned skull white, applying around 5-6 layers? how thinned should the paint be ideally? or is that entirely up to me?
I think LTP meant add white paint to the dheneb stone.

So paint 1 layer dheneb stone, 1 layer 80:20 dheneb/white, 1 layer 70:30 and then keep going until the white is as bright as you'd like it to be.

I may well be wrong, but that method makes sense to me.

heh, thanks very much :blush:

I've painted them about 6 different ways so far, i like to try out different techniques as i go along. I mostly use the same colours though.

Prime Black

Green - snot green layered up to scorpion green

Black - Chaos black layered up with bleached bone, and BB highlights

Gold - Charred brown base, burnished gold highlighted with a mix of mithril silver and washed with chesnut ink.

Shoot me a pm if you want more detail, and good luck with your sallies :)

Does layer up mean adding the other paint to the previous mixture again and again? So like you said with dheneb stone and white, start at like 80:20, then 60:40 etc ?
Yup that's it. Leave the darker colours showing through on the shaded areas and use the lighest layer on the highlight areas to give a smoother sense of depth. Wraithlord has put up a really nice tutorial on the forum which describes layering much more thoroughly.
