    Paint effect help

    Hi All,

    Can anyone tell me how to achieve the bone type effect that's on the Wraithlord? I'm wanting to use this colour on my weapons but every time I paint bone how I think it should be done my shading ends up too dark.

    What are you using to do the shading with? Personally I'd use thinned inks, but not everyone has those any more. Otherwise, I'd use thinned paint and then knock out any tide marks with the base bone colour.

    I'm using GW paints so Rekland Fleshshade over a Zhadri Dust base then layered with Screaming Skull, but still looks darker than this pic

    Maybe add some whites in there?

    It kind of looks like Pallid Wych Flesh is used for the highlight. It looks slightly more white compared with screaming skull.

    I find Fleshshade too reddish for bone personally, I use Seraphim Sepia, not sure if that helps. As for it being too dark, maybe thin the shade even further with water or Lahmian Medium.
