Native American Flesh Tones

    I am getting ready to paint a Stormtrooper Miniatures 90mm Iroquios Indian https://stormtrooperminiatures.co.u...quios-Indian-FIW/p/60088240/category=16603105.

    It hit me today, while I have a couple of Native American figures in the gray army, I have never painted any of them till now.

    I normally use oils for flesh tones, I start with titanium white, yellow ochre and burnt sienna. I will use burnt umber for shadow, titanium white for highlights. I have used a touch of light cadmium red for wind/sun burned faces and blue for cold lips on winter figures.

    What colors should I add for Native American flesh tones?

    I prime figures in white and I use Vallejo light flesh for the undercoat.

    Thanks for the help!

    Scott,

    I am attaching some info from Historical Miniature Magazine that may help out. I hope I attached them correctly for you to open. Let me know as I am kind of new at uploading files.
