Painting Bone

Here is a quick tutorial for painting bone that I am using for my chaplain. Im sure it could be adapted to Fantasy Tomb Kings, Undead or Legion of The Damned.

After priming black, I hit the bone pieces with P3 Menoth White Highlight. You could also substitute GW Bleached Bone+White or maybe even the foundation Deneb Stone.

I like the P3 paint as it gives great coverage after only two or so light coats and has a great cream color. I find GW's Bleached bone to be too thin and gets very chalky after multiple coats.

Next simply slap on a nice coat of Gryphone Sepia wash cut with water. I used two heavy coats.

After Letting it thoroughly dry, you can go in an highlight the raised edges with your original coat color. I havent done that here yet, but I think it looks pretty good as it is.

So, how do you paint bone?


  1. That does look pretty good. I had used (for this exact same model) Bleached bone followed by a wash of Devlan Mud, a highlight of thinned Bleached Bone and then very faint touches of thinned Skull White.

  2. Khemri Brown basecoat, followed by layers of Khemri/Bleached, Bleached, Bleached/White. Finally a final highlight of skull white. I think I used this on a different chaplain, below;
