What armies to paint with Ratskin Flesh
- Necrons – The Necrons are a faction of undead robots in the Warhammer 40K universe that often have a metallic or robotic appearance. However, Ratskin Flesh can be used to paint the fleshy parts of Necron soldiers, such as their brains or any organic tissue that may be visible.
- Tyranids – The Tyranids are a race of bio-engineered alien creatures that are known for their organic armour and weaponry. Ratskin Flesh can be used to paint the fleshy parts of Tyranid soldiers, such as their carapace or any exposed muscle tissue.
- Genestealer Cults – The Genestealer Cults are a faction of hybrid human-alien soldiers that are loyal to the Tyranids. Ratskin Flesh can be used to paint the fleshy parts of Genestealer Cultists, such as their faces or hands, to give them a more human-like appearance.
I chose to list these specific armies because they are all xenos (non-human) factions in the Warhammer 40K universe that could potentially benefit from using Ratskin Flesh to paint their fleshy parts. Additionally, these armies often have a mix of organic and inorganic elements, such as armour, machinery, and guns, so using Ratskin Flesh to paint their fleshy parts can help to add contrast and realism to their overall appearance.
Ratskin Flesh Colour Schemes & Combinations
Here are some red, blue, yellow, and Ratskin Flesh Citadel Colour paints that can be used together:
- Mephiston Red – Mephiston Red is a vibrant red color that can be used as a primary color in your color scheme or as a highlight color to add depth and dimension to your paint job.
- Evil Sunz Scarlet – Evil Sunz Scarlet is a slightly darker red color that can be used as a secondary color in your color scheme or as a shadow color to add depth and contrast to your paint job.

Because they are all variations of red, blue, and yellow that can be combined to make a harmonious and balanced color scheme, I decided to list these particular paints. These hues can be employed in a variety of ways, such as making red the primary hue while making blue and yellow the highlight and shadow hues, or making blue the major hue while making red and yellow the accent and shadow hues. Ratskin Flesh can also be utilized to give your miniature’s skin more depth and authenticity.
