That said, I am pretty happy with the Yu Jing style orange I have achieved by aping his colour selection, so I will share it with you today because it is really very easy to pull off, using only a normal paintbrush and 5 colours. I was in the process of painting Sun Tze when I was first asked to make this demo, so his arm was already done. The instructions correspond to what is going on on his backpack unit.
The model was primed using Games Workshop Chaos Black spray. A complete coat of Orange Brown from the Vallejo model range was painted over the armour panels.
I diluted some Vallejo Cavalry Brown and wash the orange parts. I try to get it thin enough that the most extreme bits don’t really change colour. I put it on thicker that day because I did not want it to run wild, so after that I picked out the highest bits again with the Orange Brown
Next, I picked out the extreme edges with white. I used a GW Skull White of questionable age.
I took some Scrofulous Brown from the Vallejo game range (my current favourite paint of all time), and thinned it a little with water. Then, starting from the white edges, I drew it towards the darkest areas of the surface.
And that’s all there is to it!
