10. Bubonic Brown.
This color is more useful than you may think – it makes a passable
khaki, it is good for basing figures on sand, and it makes passable blonde
hair. With a chestnut wash, it makes a pretty realistic-looking rope,
Some Fighting Tigers wear
Bubonic Brown--which is actually a mustard yellow....
9. Tin Bitz. In the
range of metallics, Tin Bitz provides a nice, darker hue to contrast with
Brazen Brass and the golds. It also looks good with Boltgun Metal
and Mithril Silver, and when drybrushed, can make suitable rust.
8. Goblin Green. Sure,
it is good for painting Orks, but it is also useful for grass, trees, and
cold hard cash.
No, it's "Goblin Green,"
not "Green Goblin."
7. Mithril Silver. A
nice shiny metal color, good for swords and high-tech weaponry.
6. Skull White. Good
for skulls, graffiti and numbering, and priming in a pinch (I am not counting
the spray cans).
5. Blood Red. In a game
that simulates war, you have got to expect a little blood.
4. Snakebite Leather. Great
for leather pouches, belts, and wood grain, with a chestnut or brown wash,
3. Boltgun Metal. You’ve
got to paint your weapons something, and most likely Boltgun Metal will
be somewhere on them.
If you're going to paint
Tyranids, you're probably going to need a lot of Paint #2 on our list...
2. Bleached Bone. How
useful is Bleached Bone? I paint skulls, claws, teeth, bandages, loin cloths,
eyes, flags, and parchment paper. A must-have in any paint collection,
but not as must has as…
1. Chaos Black. You
prime with it, you can paint an entire army with it (have you seen Kenton’s
there is not an army I own that does not have some black on each figure
somewhere (even the oh-so-colorful-Eldar). Which just goes to show
that Chaos Black is the new black.
Like the Pittsburgh Steelers,
Kenton's Space Dwarves wear an awful lot of black and gold
