Ork Skin

  1. Basecoat with a mix of Averland Sunset and Skarsnik Green . I make the ratio about 1:1, but add a little more Skarsnik Green , so it reads as green and not yellow.
  2. Shade recesses with Biel-Tan Green . Use a combination of glazing and traditional recess shading.
  3. Run small amounts of Coelia Greenshade into deep recesses with a fine brush. Mix in a little Contrast Medium if you want to make it easier to handle.
  4. Add general highlights to the skin with Ogryn Camo .
  5. How apply fine highlights with Krieg Khaki .
  6. Glaze Kislev Flesh over ear tips, lips, the nose, knuckles and elbows.
  7. Add final selective and specular highlights of 1:1 Screaming Skull and White .

Goblin Skin

  1. Basecoat with Nurgling Green .
  2. Add general shading to the recesses. for this I thinned Skarsnik Green 1:2 with Lahmian Medium and applied it like a controlled wash.

  4. Now shade deep recesses that need more definition with Coelia Greenshade .

  4. On very deep parts I added a little Black and Khorne Red to my Dark Reaper to add real definition. This is also the mix I used to darken the eyes, prior to picking them out.
  5. Increase the amount of Karak Stone in your basemix, so it is now roughly 2:1 with the Thunderhawk Blue . Apply highlights to all of the skin.
