Default Tell Me What You Think

Heres the idea I have for the paint scheme of the Death Korps army I'm starting. This is the paint scheme for the standard Death Korps Troops. Please tell me what you think.

For the overcoat...

Start with scorched brown basecoat

Graveyard Earth with a little more water than usual

Then graveyard earth with commando khaki (1,1) ratio


For the pants/bedroll...

Start with dark angels green

Catachan Green

Then Catachan Green with commando khaki (1,1) ratio


The helmet...


Dark angels green

Then Catachan Green


For the Masks/Gloves...

Start with dark flesh

Then bestial brown


For the Gun/Various Metal...

Black

Then Drybrush boltgun metal



The first color is the base color and the other colors are the highlights unless stated otherwise.

Please feel free to tell comment on the paint scheme.

from memory, dark angels green, despite being a darker green, is actually based on a more vivid colour. catachan green is actually an earthier colour. i'd recommend mixing in maybe something more like scorched brown, or if you can get it, vallejo model colour leather brown. or, and here's and even crazier idea that i saw a while back, mix in like a dark red or purple...somethin to do with the light spectrum. but that's an idea i'd play around with a bit more before i chucked it straight on a mini.

actually, even a touch of black in the catachan green would probably be a better idea than dark angels green...something to do with GW having this bizarre range of paints that don't always progress logically in terms of base colour
