Larry,

Another little tip is that you an use inks or colors as bottow layers, and then use really watered down layers of rotting flesh, bone white, or even gray on top. These colors are actually transparent in thin layers if you use citidel paint (as they have less pigmen). Basically the result is that the underlayer actually tints the paint and the top layer blends all the colors.

I had a lot of success with this for things that need to look rotten but still need color.

Painting Rotting Flesh?

Right, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to paint up a dead Giant. A Zombie Giant if you will. Grey? Green? I think Grey is probably better but I can't seem to get the colors right.

Any of you painting-expert types want to give me some advice?

I have had a good turn out using grey than highlighting out to rotting flesh this will give it a slight green tint , do it as if you were painting grey flesh but instead of using white or bone to bring up the highlight use rotting flesh.



oh and did you check out that train shop

I had success by painting the dead skin codex grey, then using an ink of dark angels green mixed 50/50 with black. Highlight up with codex grey again and then stonewall grey (one grey up in the scale) then another wash with the same mix thinned down much further.
