hey, I really like this color scheme and want to copy it 1:1 (is that douchebaggy?). can some of you painting experts tell a painting beginner what colors to use?

Not douchebaggy at all, I'd say it's flattering even, unless you plan to tell people that it's your original idea. Then yeah, douchetown express. Very Happy

For the colors: The basic armor is basecoated with Naggaroth Night and highlited with Genestealer or Xereus purple (hard to tell in that light) and extreme edges are done with Emperor's Children. The additional armor is basecoated with Baltasar Gold and shaded with Seraphim Sepia with Auric Armor Gold edge highlights. Dunno about the hair but I'd wager Celestra Gray base with Nuln Oil shade and Ulthuan Grey highlits with White Scar edges. The cloths are based with Rakarth Flesh, shaded with Carbough Crimson and highlighted with Ushabti Bone.

I'd say base abaddon black, maybe a druchii violet all around shade, then precise highlights with
~screamer pink / xereus purple, genestealer purple

Most extreme highlights should be pallid wych flesh (probably with a dot or genestealer or xereus purple), regarding the color scheme.

Bronze : retributor gold, agrax earthshade, hasnut copper, highlights liberator gold

Scorched Skin  : cadian fleshtone, druchii violet, kislev flesh (probably bleached bone for 2nd from left)

Viasages skin : cadian > kislev > druchii > pallid > mix w white scar

Eyes : white scar, green ink (might use warpstone glow)

Edit : Add the picture, in cas it gets 404'd (thinking of you, futur guys)



Hint : Most of small details are shaded with druchii violet to link the whole, except eyes & hair, for contrast and focal points
Hint : Some highlights might contain some deep red (mephiston/evil sunz) to add variety

Edge highlights require precision and a steady brush hand, so if you ten to overspill or are not yet steady enough, you might want to train up a bit before attempting this color scheme. On the other hand, take a model and attempt to recreate the colour scheme and see how it goes for you.
