The most simple way to paint tanned skin is to use dwarf flesh, give it a flesh wash inking, then go back over the muscles with dwarf flesh. Afterwards you can highlight by adding a little bronzed flesh to the mix, working up the skin tones.

Well that's the joy with humans, you can use as many different skin tones as you like without it looking out of place. We are all different, after all. With aliens it's easier to do them all the same (since humans wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway - we're too different).

too true. i like lighter tones because i figure they dont get too much light out in the jungle. the other great thing about 40k humans is that they can conform to about any ideas you have for them. its great.

Personally I've always thought Catachans would be tanned, since if you look at the african tribes that live in the jungles they are as dark skinned as can be. I would imagine there'd be variation, since I'm sure there's some partial climate differences, even on Catachan.

yeah, but look at hispanic people when cosidering that statement as well. i think the lighter skin tones give them more of a colonist look. also they are often off planet a lot. and lastly, i like the vietnam look to them
