These are my Flesh Eater Courts. I made all the nobles fat, for some reason I can't even recall.

  1. Priming: Grey Seer with a zenithal highlight of Matt White Undercoat
  2. Flesh: Reikland Fleshshade straight over the prime, followed by Magos Purple and then a drybrush of Pallid Wych Flesh . The hands are Shyish Purple , quickly feathered into the basecoat with a wet brush.
  3. Hair:
    The fur and hair is Fyreslayer Flesh , with a coat of Wyldwood , then feathering out Cygor Brown on the further reaches, using a wet brush to blend as with the hands.
  4. Bones, meat, teeth and claws: Skeleton Horde over the bones and teeth, with Black Templar over the claws. The fresh meat is Flesh Tearers Red
  5. Rotting Skin:
    For the skin on the wings, or the corpses, Fyreslayer Flesh followed by Militarum Green Drybrush up with Ionrach Skin
  6. Metal and Cloth:
    The metal is Leadbelcher weathered with watered down Skrag Brown . The few scraps of cloth are Terradon Turquoise
  7. Basing: Abaddon Black rim, with AK Interactive Wet Ground over. Army Painter Winter and Frozen tufts are added, then some Valhallan Blizzard over the top. Experimenting with using AK Interactive Snow instead of Valhallan Blizzard, will update this if it proves better, but it's at least comparable.
  8. Blood and Bruises:
    Anywhere that should look sore is given some Carroburg Crimson . The blood is a mix of Blood For The Blood God and Typhus Corrosion , with some fresh Blood For The Blood God spattered on top. I add some of this to the bases underneath hands and mouth, or anywhere it might drip to. This is the primary reason the blood is done after the basing, as I can get blood on the snow for a cool effect.
