My attempt at skin tone for use on minis from warmer climes. Recipe shared to me from good friend who has excellent skin tones across his minis!

  1. Basecoat the head with Steel Legion Drab
  2. Soft shade with a 1:1 mix of Steel Legion Drab and Thondia Brown
  3. Deep shade Thondia Brown
  4. Highlight up by adding increasing amounts of Wraithbone to Steel Legion Drab . Focus on the forehead, cheeks, chin
  5. I added black lines to imitate Egyptian eye-line patterns for a bit of fun.
  6. Eyes were painted white, then I used a green fluorescent paint - in this case GreenStuffWorld. You can also use Hexwraith Flame mixed with Yellow Fluorescent for example. Glaze around the eye for OSL. Mix a bit of Wraithbone into the fluoro mix to highlight OSL on places like the cheeks.
  7. Teeth are painted Wraithbone . Lips were painted with the highlight mix, but you can also add a pinker tone with Cadian Fleshtone
  8. If needed, a glaze across areas of Skeleton Horde can add a warmth to the skin.
