Little help for a newbie

This poor reanimated was sacrificed for the greater good. Army's color scheme test!

The gold and red feel really weird, but i'm liking them honestly. I don't like the cloth's color and... i don't like the spectral green.

First pic has the hexwraith flame used once. Too light. Second pic has it used another time. Too dark. 

It's also way too hard for me... using super liquid paint apparently is my Achille's heel... imagining to do that for every figure... ****!

I'll try with a simple acid green for the undeads' "skin"

Oh, also using nurgles rot for blight oozing from the weapons. So far so good!

very light white  drybrush or watered down white/grey ink above this green should make it perfect. I'd definitely go with drybrush. OFC it is hard when you made them armors and weapons already.

Seconded, the drybrush after the green wash is very important to make the color scheme work.

With a lot of efforts and some tips i painted the golem:

I tried to use the Carthridge color scheme from the manual

The good: drybrush effect. I was actually at how easy it was and how good was the result, both for the stone and for the terrain.

The bad: shading. Again, i wasn't able to shade it effectively. The orange mantle looks...dirty

The ugly: runes. I wanted them to be more... glowing

Looking good! I dont think the orange mantle looks too bad. You could try mixing in a little white in the orange and picking out the raised edges for a little more contrast.

If you want to make the runes brighter I would recommend painting them solid white (do several thin coats if necessary), then with a quite well diluted colour. You can always do a second coat of the colour if the white still shows through too much.
