I know theres already a post on how to do this but I want some more input as I am terrible when it comes to painting flesh. How do you guys paint your dark eldar skin?

That's to each their own of course, but I begin with tallarn flesh, then add bleached bone to that, a wash of gryphonne sepia, another layer of tallarn+bone, then add some deneb stone to that.

Mmmm, skin.



After a couple of attempts I went with a lazyman's method:



Undercoat Chaos Black

Basecoat Dheneb Stone

Wash Leviathan Purple

Highlight Dheneb Stone

Extreme highlight (if necessary) 1:1 Dheneb Stone + Skull White

Basecoat:1:1:3 Shadow Grey/Tallarn Flesh/Space Wolves Grey
Shade with a mixture of Vallejo Smoke and Leviathan Purple Wash
Highlights: I mix in SW Grey first, then white.

It's all approximate. I matched the skin tone that I mixed from God-knows-what ten years ago for my original DE army.

I tried using the Fortress Grey washed with Asuramen Blue, highlighted with Fortress Grey and Skull White on my Haemonculi and got almost identical results with less work Sad

Ron @ From The Warp has a pretty good guide on his site.

[L_O edit]
It is in tutorials links from... ever. But it's good stuff, so why not

I use

P3 Midlund flesh and GW Bestial Brown 1:1
Wash with GW Ogryn Flesh
Highlight with P3 Midlund flesh
Highlight with P3 Midlund flesh and P3 Morrow White
Add final highlight of GW Elf flesh

My DE tend to be a warmer tone, since I am not a big fan of the more grey tone the Heavy Metal team seems so fond of.

I use the Fortress Grey blue wash method ... it is very easy and produces fantastic results!

I start with a base of Dheneb stone.
I then wash some heavily watered down Calthan Brown into the recesses.
Then i highlight with a mix of Dheneb and White. Slowly adding more white until i finish off with pure Skull White.

Extras:
The eyes are then painted black. A thin line of white is painted within the boundaries of the black. Finish off with a dot of black in the middle of the white line.
The mouth (if slightly open) is given a wash of thinned down black.
