[Archive] BEARDS


Please enlighten me to your great beard painting secrets!:slight_smile:

Thommy H:

Mix up some chaos black with some enchanted blue (about 40/60) as your base coat, then keep adding white and drybrush two or three layers. Finally, wash over in watered down chaos black.

Easy and fast.


either Shadow Grey or Codex Grey with a wash of watered down Tamiya Clear Smoke (or multiple washes if you want it darker).


I remember seeing online this fantastic scheme where the beards were red at the top and became orange-y and then yellow at the bottom. Looked fantastic.


Drybrush Shadow grey, it doesnโ€™t matter if its a bit bright as dullcoat or purity seal (whichever you use), tends to tone down the colour and make it blend into the black better.
