    Highlight help

    I've decided to go with an Ulthwe paint scheme for my Eldar, I've found a nicely highlighted black but I can't work out what colours would have been used to do the highlights.

    Can anyone help?

    Black is worked up from grey to white for the very tips/edges usually. There are far more professional folk on here who can give better advice if they are not on winter holibobs, but grey mixed with black, working up to light grey mixed with white to white itself is a common approach.
