Thanks!
I don't think it has been asked before. I basically just tried mixing some paints and stumbled across something I liked more than my previous versions and that's easy to reproduce:

I start with a mixture of VMC brown rose (70.803) and VMC grey blue (70.943), to which I add more brown rose and later VMC sky grey (70.989) in subsequent layers.

Nothing too fancy, but I like the hue.

If you meant the skin loincloths, that's just a matter of mixing some random purple with skintones and layering it up^^

While I have been waiting for my order of Reavers for about 1.5 months now, my order of Mandrakes has arrived rather quickly and I have started and finished the first model today:

The blade took a lot of approaches for me to be happy with it and the "indentations" in the skin are a pain in the rear, especially since they aren't as pronounced as I'd like them to be.
Still, I like the result and look forward to painting the next 4^^

Like them! The pink skirts look amazing. What paints did you use?

Thanks a lot! They're mainly purples, browns and skintone paints. Mixed them differently for the two minis, since I wanted to go for different skintones. I'll try to mix it up a bit from mini to mini.

The main paint is VMC brown rose, mixed with whatever I felt like. A dark purple, some flesh wash, some chocolate brown, some lighter skintone. Just whatever I felt like, really.

Yeah, the Finecast issues are really prominent here. I've had no issues with my Lelith, my Emperor's Champion or my Archon, but these can be annoying. I have my eye on an auction of 5 metal ones to complete the squad.

Four down, one to go. And then I'll have to see if I can get another box anywhere. Damn Brexit...

I just played my first (simulated) gme with the new Codex. Went against Eldar, my opponent's army consisted mainly of Dire Avengers, Wraith Guards, 2 Wraith Lords and Warwalkers.
I played 3 patrols, 2 Kabal, 1 Cult.
The re-rolls Black Heart offers have been really useful. I've "had to" use 2 squads of Scourges, since I don't own a Ravager yet. While those with Blasters which I deepstruck whiffed (as Scourges always do when I use them), the Mandrakes were great for secondary objectives, the Incubi and Archon were an amazing counterpunch unit and the Wyches are so good now.
But the star of the show was the Succubus. Precision blows, Triptych whip, Adrenalight. Absolute beast. Killed 4 Wraithguard and 2 Wraith Lords over the course of the game. Absolute unit.

Can't wait to play in real life again...
