I started hunting around for Orc skin recipes that I liked. This has proven to be harder than it sounds.
The first test model idea is to use goblin green as a base. I will follow this up by 2 washes of Thraka green wash (a touch of flesh was in second coat), as well as 2 washes of Gryphonne Sepia wash. I am then to highlight with goblin green, vgc dark fleshtone and dheneb stone. About 3:2:1. And then keep adding dheneb stone to the previous mix to get the wanted light.

I started with a base coat of Knarloc green and a wash of brown/yellow. GW suggests that you go directly to a highlight of goblin green after the shade (they shade with Orchide Green), but instead I will be reapplying knarloc as a highlight. THEN I will apply the goblin green highlight. The last highlight will be 1:1 goblin green and Rotting flesh.

The last recipe I am going to try...unless someone can suggest something else to try, is Dark Angel Green, highlighted by goblin green. A final highlight of scorpion green will hopefully finish off the flesh.

p.s. Is anyone going to gameday? I really would love to get my hands on the Skaven model being offered. If you are headed there and want to pick me up one, I will gladly pay you back for your troubles!! Send me a message if this something you want to do.
