Greetings , fellow Archons and Coven Lords.

Can you please help me find colors i need for my Dark Eldar Skin?

I use Dheneb Stone, then wash with Badab Black, then highlight with Skull White.

The codex cover seems like it could do with the first two steps of mine, just replacing the Skull White highlight with something like Bleached Bone for that sickly green shade.

But none of those colours is green.

I guess my recipie could be upgraded to 1:1 Green-Blue wash.

You might try a Charadon Granite for shading if you use Dheneb for the skin tone. Should get a similar effect.

Thanks for the answers people, i will post restults for you to see.

It just so happen i have ordered Valejo Heavy WarmGrey not so long ago, which is equivalent to Dheneb Stone so i can try this very soon.
