How to paint a Skeleton of the Vampire Counts

(For the beginnig I want say that my english isnt so good, Im from germany but I hope you understand this, have fun to watch)
First I use Chaos Black Spray for the undercoat

First Basic Color ist Khemri Brown...
An Image
...I use it for the bones
An Image
Next Basic Color is Boltgun Metal...
An Image
...its a great basic for weapons and gears for the skeletons
An Image
An Image
Last basic color is Mordian Blue...
An Image
...for clothes (hm this guy doesnt have much clothes^^)
An Image
so that was the basic colors...
An Image
Now the shield...The Shield become a undercoat with chaos black too
An Image
The basic color for the shield is Calthan Brown
An Image
An Image
An Image
I paint the metal things on the shield with Boltgun metal..

Let us come to the fun part of painting...WASH^^
We need my favourite paint from the citadel-paints...DEVLAN MUD

An Image
I wash the complete model and the shield with devlan mud
An Image
An Image
After the wash, we need the second color for the bones...
An Image

Next Step,I brush the shield with graveyard earth
