Hi All,

Brand new to both Warhammer and the board, felt I should start by saying I've read through several threads (the showcase armies / models are AWESOME) and am very excited to become a part of the community.

I'd like my army's color scheme to mirror GW's Mandrakes (skin, hair, green flames, weapons, the works). Google and Youtube are surprisingly dry; if anyone happens to know of an article or could otherwise help me I'd really appreciate it! Thanks very much for your time Smile

Paint the green sigils first, with probably 3 layers of green gradually building up the highlights, then dry rush the skin over the top, then think about the hair and flames, again starting with a darker colour and dry brushing the lighter colours over the top to build up the depth of colour.

Excellent, thank you very much! Smile Have you by chance painted any using GW's color scheme? I'm curious about specifically which paints I will need to purchase. No worries if not, of course. I also am planning on purchasing a dual control airbrush which will hopefully help the runes and flames really pop!

Sorry, I went with a colour scheme of my own that was similar, but using old paint colours.
