Painting Fleshtones

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I was curious to hear what are some people's tactics for tackleing painting fleshtones on your models. Especially non-Caucasian colors. I want some variety in both in the French and CoA forces when the new box comes out!

Here's a rather intensive method I found on BoLS

I am sure there are others. Send them in.

I do it very simple and that is why my models are all having a light colour skin. I start with a medium dark brown and then paint over it with a humanskin colour. that's about it. I doesn't give as much details in the face but it is good for me.

 

Still I have to figure how to give some of my models a darker skin tone for the afro-Americans for my CoA Army. I have some ideas but never did it before.

I have various trios of flesh tones from Foundry - Dark African through to Oriental - as well as some Vallejo flesh tones.  For my Britannians I used South American Flesh as a basecoat, then highlighted with South American Flesh Light, finishing with Medium Fleshtone.

 

Because CoA forces would be multi-national I will use a variety of shades in the human units.
