Uthuk Y'llan Color Schemes

I'm not sure on skin tone, but I was looking at using Rucksack Tan and a Sepia wash for their loincloths. I did a desert undead army and used those on the capes. That combination looks filthy. Almost muddy filthy. 

 

I was thinking stark white bone growths. You know, bleached by the sun and all

 

 

EDIT: Or go with dark brown/black pants, tan skin, black smudges around the eyes and silver around the mouths. Go full warboys from Fury Road. Then I get to go "witness me!" every time I sack some berserkers for Lethal 1-2

My like was for the edit. Warboys sounds great!!

I still can't decide on how to paint these guys.  I can't decide the colors until I decide on skin tone and the FFG Uthuk skin tones are all over the map.  I think darker more african tones would be really cool looking and would combine well for yellow, purple, or orange cloth.  If I go for more of just a tanned look, then a lot of those still can work I'm just worried about losing the contrast.  On the other hand I could go lighter like the old Uthuk but those always looked bleh.  Then there's the weird colors you could do.  I mean, they could always be green like orcs ;)  Decisions, decisions...

Seriously though, does anyone have more suggestions on how to do the skin tone in a way that will contrast simple cloth and bone spurs.  It's bugging me a lot recently that I can't figure this out.

If you are worried about contrast it is simple, pick a skin tone and build the rest off of it.  A complimentary scheme naturally gives the greatest level of contrast.

African-like skin with orange cloth would be my choice if I weren't sticking with canon colors. I think that would be a great color combination.

An orange theme is also an option.
I am kinda set on a purple-ish skin I used for my infested TIE and A-Wing and exaggerating the weird tumors and veins. But then I also like the black and white with a little pink thrown in from Slaneesh or the blue like Trollbloods. THE OPTIONS!

I'm thinking my Uthuk will basically say "red" the way the Daqan say "blue" , waiqar  "purple", and the elves "green".

I know that's boring, but  the board is then color coded, grabbing the right dials, future dice, future movement tools...all work.

I'm using army war paints:

I'm picking Chaotic red for the cloth, "Tanned Flesh" for the skin, there will be a lot, so dark skinned barbarian, like folks have said above.

Skeleton bone for most of the pointy bits, probably go with bone for most of those weapons and Plate mail metal for any weapons that aren't bone.

I think the Spined Threshers, will be interesting, I really don't like the pink.

I think most mouths will be dragon red with white teeth, I'm hoping the 2 reds clash, creating kind of an "ugh" feeling, in a good way.

;)

 

Forgot to mention, I have the paints in hand...no, I'm not at all excited or anything...

You are the brimming font of creativity. :lol:

 

Uthuk appear to look bad an any colour scheme (then again colour shifting the stock FFG paint jobs does no favours to anything), so may as well go purple and teal for new worlds of obnoxious colours.

Me neither. I'm planning to use Demonic Yellow and try my hand at blending with the red to give their bellies a fiery look to them. I have high hopes and low skill. Should be an adventure! :P

You hear that?  It is the sound of no one believing you.

 

Nope, nope, noooooooooepe. Not even with help am I painting another army to Waiqar standard. :D 
Ravos? Yeah. The 'zerkers can suck it.

Edit: The more I am waiting for the release (still not here, wtf asmodee) the more I realise just how wrong that entire statement was. I have no agency over my own time management.

JUDGE!?

If any army deserves your utmost attention, it is Uthuk. Especially now that I'm sure you have them in hand, you realize just how true that is.
