Any Ideas On A New Way To Paint Bone?

Postby Larro » Mon Oct 10, 2005 8:25 am

I'm sick of the whole brown build up to bone, highlighted with white. Anything else out there? I know I've seen something else done from other people, more of a grey or a purple build up, sort of like a cold or more old fashioned "crypt" look. Anyone know anything about other methods of painting bone? Anything at all would help. Thanks suckers.

Just to mix it up, and distinguish the bone from the horns/claws, mine is shadow grey, space wolf grey, white.

Gives the bone a much more "bleached" look.

You can see it on Saturday, as it's all over my army.

Ed - I'll check it out on Saturday.

Jim - The Dark Elves have been down to the Club 3 times, and that's only because I'm busy and unable to make it there regularly. They're 3-1 so far, losing only to Brook's Khemri, and the game itself was a good one. The Tomb Kings army I've been painting and assembling since the Summer is for the GT circuit this year, if there is one, and the Dark Elves are just for something different, and for the Club project if we go through with it.

Now contribute something useful you bald-headed flake!! :rollin

Prime white, then do the dip!

Long long time ago I painted some hero quest skeletons white, then put a brown over it, and then wiped it off with q tips, leaving the brown only in the cracks. It looked good.

Dear Warmongers,

We can't tell you how happy we are that you're doing elves.

Sincerely,
Everyone else.

It's a complement, not an insult.

I know. I'm just saying that don't assume we're still not going to have someone run the tables. A couple of the elf builds people came up with are STRONG! (not mine, but I think I can handle my own business to a good degree)

CoP is a particularly good list. If I knew how good it was before we started on this project, I would have snatched it up. But I just HAD to do the Seaguard. :lol I mean, how could I NOT?!?!? I want to make sure that when I win, people complement my list design. ;)
