Default What colours work for eldar hair and skin?

So, most of the space elves have their pointy-helmets on, but I have some of the rangers, and some of them have their hats off and their hair flowing.

I can't really picture doing them in human skin and hair tones. And suggestions?

Lighter skin tones than humans. Try elf flesh base, flesh wash, highlight with elf flesh and then a final highlight with a little white mixed in.

Hair is pretty much the same as humans I think. But blonde hair seems the most suitable to me.

All the Eldar I've seen had the skin painted with Elf Flesh, and the hair exactly like human's, brown, black or blond. But, I don't remember where, sorry, I've seen Eldar skin painted with Rotting Flesh with grey hair

That seems so boring though.

Lighter-skinned humans. That doesn't exactly inspire awe.

So paint them in whatever colour looks appropriate in your opinion. Maybe a good idea can be to paint them like the drow from D&D: black skin and white hair.

Blue skin...sorta like tau, but more blue-ish...
I think that would look pretty cool. But it also depends on your color scheme.

I think a really pale skin would look cool. Not so much a lighter human skin... more like albino. And then whatever hair colour you like... blonde is the "generic" hair colour.

I actually went the opposite route with my Dark Eldar, and made them dark-skinned with Black hair.

Light....any colour.


I did light green with purple hair. Theyre aliens, you can do whatever you want.
