Does anyone have an idea on how I could do any of these paint jobs? I have selected 11 paint jobs I like but I need your help to tell me what you think they used and how they did it. When answering for a picture please put the number of the one you answer. Thank you.

Looks like skull white with brown washes, nice use of Genestealer bits as well!

Pic #11 looks like the scheme shown in White Dwarf in the last couple of months if you can get hold of the back issues they had a step by step guide.

Start with Moridan blue
Then blue wash (sorry can't remember the name)
overbrush the scales with a lighter blue like ultramarines/regal/enchanted then wash again
then build up progressivly lighter blue layers on the skin parts

#1 is bleach bone and a brown wash with a twist.... mix your Devlin mud wash 50/50 with 'ard coat gloss finish. You are gonna have to test the finish of the wash to make sure it flows properly you may have to add some more water to get the flow correct.

Saurus are always blue now, arent they? Orcs green, humans flesh, saurus blue?

GW do all their Saurus blue but alternate schemes often look just as good if not better for being a bit different.
