Mechanicus Ryza Orange/Brown Need Help
« on: November 14, 2016, 03:40:39 PM »
Hey I am looking at painting some skitarii because I love the models but I don't want to go for the standard red. I would like to try a Ryza paint scheme but not a bright orange. There is a picture in the codex that I really love and want to take inspiration from however I am not sure what paints to use to accomplish this.
Here is the picture I am talking about.

I've gotten a similar color out of Averland Sunset with a liberal amount of Agrax Earthshade wash.  I use it as the shirts for my Orks so it's not as prominent, but it might be a decent enough starting point for you to build upwards with.  For instance, try drybrushing the Sunset base with burnt orange of some kind, then hitting it with the Agrax to darken and dirty it into the tan.

Another thing to consider is directly mixing Sunset with an orange for that second coat.  Sometimes, it's just easier to mix your own paints than to rely on the bottle.
