I decided to paint my Fellgor Ravagers Beastmen with a variety of skin tones, but tie the Kill Team together with the colour of the equipment.

Pale Skin

  1. Basecoat the skin with an equal parts mix of Rakarth Flesh , Ushabti Bone and White Scar .
  2. Wash the skin with Reikland Fleshshade , thinned witn an equal amount of Contrast Medium .
  3. If you want to add any extra definition in recesses, I would receommend doing a deep recess shade with some thin Dryad Bark and a thin brush.
  4. Increase the amount of White Scar in the base mix and apply highlights.
  5. Finally, add selective highlights of pure White Scar , where needed.

Scars

  1. After the skin was done, I took some Volupus Pink worked it on my wet pallete and then went over the scars.
  2. Edge highlight the raised detail with Pallid Wych Flesh .
  3. Finish off the scars with dots of White Scar on any raised lumps of irregularities in the scar.

Horns

  1. Basecoat with Ushabti Bone .
  2. Paint the top two thirds of the horns with XV-88 .
  3. Repeat the process coverring less area with a glaze of Mournfang Brown .
  4. Mix the Mournfang Brown with Rhinox Hide and glaze again. At this point you should be coverring less than one thirds of it (roughly).
  5. Finally, glaze the tip with Rhinox Hide .
  6. Wash the exposed Ushabti Bone with some Skeleton Horde and the XV-88 / Mournfang Brown sections with Agrax Earthshade . I like to thin them both a little on my wet pallete before application.
  7. Now use the browns from your pallete to selectively edge highlight the horns, using a shade one stage lighter than they were painted initially.

Black Fur

  1. Basecoat with Abaddon Black .
  2. Pick out the individual strands with a 1:1 mix of Abaddon Black and Eshin Grey .
  3. Edge highlight strands with a thin line of Dawnstone .
  4. Seletively highlight tips and curves with Administratum Grey .
  5. Finish off with dots of White Scar on the tips of the strands.

Red Cloth

  1. Basecoat with Gal Vorbak Red .
  2. Glaze highlight with a thin 1:1 mix of Gal Vorbak Red . and Khorne Red .
  3. Chunky edge highlight with Evil Sunz Scarlet .
  4. Fine edge highlight with Squig Orange .
  5. Mix the Squig Orange 1:1 with Screaming Skull , then selectively highlight corners and curves.
  6. Add dots of Screaming Skull to finish the cloth.

Black Armour

  1. Basecoat: Black
    Chunky: Incubi / Sons of Horus / Black 1:1:1 (use mix)
    Highlight: Sons of Horus
    Highlight: Ionrach / Dark Reaper 2:1 (use mix)
    Stormhost Silver/bright silver of choice chips added at the end.

Bronze Armour

  1. Basecoat with Runelord Brass .
    Shade: Akhelian green all over wash
    Highlight: base mix
    Highlight: Base mix / Stormhost 1:1
    Highlight: stormhost
    Weathering: glaze green tones build up verdigriswith
  2. Wash with Agrax Earthshade .
  3. Mix Sotek Green and Kabalite Green 1:1 and run it into selective places you want verdigis.
  4. Enhance this weathering my mixing some White Scar into the above paints and adding smaller patches.
  5. Edge highlight the metal with a 1:1 mix of Runelord Brass and Stormhost Silver .
  6. Finish off the metal with selective edge highlights of Stormhost Silver .

Steel

  1. Basecoat with Leadbelcher .
  2. Wasdh with Nuln Oil .
  3. Add weathering with thinned Agrax Earthshade , Ratling Grime or any other transparent browns you prefer.
  4. Edge highlight with Stormhost Silver .

Brown Leather

  1. Basecoat the leather area with Rhinox Hide .
  2. Glaze most of the leather with thinned Mournfang Brown . Use quite a small brush and drag towards edges in rough lines. This should create some extra texture.
  3. Add a chunky edge highlight of Skrag Brown to all edges.
  4. Highlight everything again, this time with a fine line of Skrag Brown and Ushabti Bone mixed 1:1. This is a good mix to throw in occasional fine lines as scratches too.
  5. With pure Ushabti Bone , selectively highlight corners and exposed edges of the leather. Put a dot of this colour where the additional scratched above meet edges too.
  6. Add a little pure white (like Dead White ) to your Ushabti Bone and add dot highlights to corners.
