I'm wanting to paint Lelith with a warmer skintone than the normal pallid Dark Eldar look. Can anyone suggest anything?

I'm not an expert painter, so the cycle of 3 paint would be perfect! (Base, shade, base, highlight).

I usually use Vallejo Game Colour, and have my eye on the bronzed flesh from that range, but not sure on what shade or highlight. But if anyone wants to suggest paint from the GW range, that's great too Smile

I'm not a fan of the Vallejo bronzed flesh, because it's somehow extremely 'yellow'. It looks weird and unnatural. GW's Dwarf flesh (or whatever it's called now) is better. Vallejo's Heavy Skintone is pretty nice, though, and could be a good base.

It really depends on how warm you want your skintone to be. Do you want it to basically look human? Or like ruddy, fresh-cheeked dwarfs? It might help if you could post some kind of picture of a skintone you really like.

I really like the skin tone on Lady justice from Wyrd miniatures. It's warmer, but not tanned. I don't want it too orange see Smile

I liked using VGC Heavy skin tone, then adding VMC light flesh to it gradually to get a warm skin tone. I would shade with GW beasial Brown or now a mix of VGC Heavy skin tone and GW mournfang brown.

Chek out my PLOG to see if what I have is what you are looking for
