Plunder for the Ironclad Fleet [Mar 16 2024 - A Machine for Pigs]

This skin scheme is a pretty new style to me. Unfortunately I can’t share yet the model that I think best represents what I was aiming for.

  1. Basecoat with Ushabti Bone before washing with DIY Agrax Earthshade equivalent
  2. Moosh some transparent violet around to give most of it some tint, being sure to get the deepest areas of the face (this also gives some synergy with my scheme which introduces violet in small ways)
  3. Hit the raised areas with flesh 5
  4. If a more important model can layer in some transparent flesh for a slightly different cheek/lip hue (skipped this for the infantry)
  5. Smaller hit of flesh 2 to the nose and cheeks (although given the hat brim overhang for the cheeks I dumbed the flesh 2 down a bit with flesh 5 mixed in)

Worth noting I work steps 2-5 all approximately during the working time of step 2. @warcolours paint has a great working time for blending. If one of the highlights goes awry I just pick up one of the transparent colors to blend it out.
