What armies to paint with Eldar Flesh
The Eldar Flesh paint from Citadel Colour is a versatile paint that can be used on a variety of armies in the Warhammer 40K universe. Here are three armies that can be painted using Eldar Flesh:
- Eldar – As the name suggests, Eldar Flesh is the perfect paint to use on the delicate skin tones of the Eldar factions. This warm, neutral hue serves as an ideal basecoat for highlighting the intricate details of the Eldar’s armour and clothing. The matt finish of the paint ensures a smooth, non-glossy look that will give the Eldar a classic and timeless appearance.
- Necrons – The metallic, almost otherworldly appearance of the Necrons makes Eldar Flesh an interesting choice to use as a basecoat on their machinery and infantry. The undertones of the paint can be used to create depth and interest in the shadows of the Necrons, while the metallic elements in the paint will make the Necrons look like they’re made of otherworldly materials.
- Imperium – The Imperium factions, with their predominantly human soldiers, can benefit from the use of Eldar Flesh as a basecoat. The paint’s neutral tone makes it a versatile choice for creating a wide range of skin tones, from the fair complexions of Imperial Guard to the sun-kissed skin of Imperial Navy. With its smooth matt finish and good coverage, Eldar Flesh is a perfect foundation for the creation of detailed, lifelike soldiers in the service of the Imperium.
Eldar Flesh Colour Schemes & Combinations
- Alaitoc Blue is an appropriate blue Citadel Color paint to combine with Underhive Ash. Alaitoc Blue helps bring brightness to the entire color palette by offering a wonderful contrast to the dark, subdued tones of Underhive Ash.
- Retributor Armor is a wise investment if you have gold. Retributor armor’s metallic sheen can be used to impart highlights to tools, vehicles, and other metallic components, giving the army a sense of radiance and richness.
- Averland Sunset by Citadel Colour is a suggested paint for flesh. The warm, peachy-brown Averland Sunset can be utilized for different flesh tones in the army, bringing the dazzling golden highlights and the deep Underhive Ash into perfect harmony.
When combined, these three hues can offer a solid base for a wide number of color schemes and painting techniques, opening up a wide range of possibilities when using Eldar Flesh as a painting medium.
