Hi, I'm looking for inspiration for painting my totanem. What colours have others used? Any hints for painting stone effects?

Cheers Haz

When I painted mine (the unit with hand weapons in the Croc store) I used a base stone grey, and mixed a little bit of a different color into each guy's paintjob - so that they all had a stony feel but slightly different colors.

I've seen some other cool effects though, hopefully someone will share some more...

These are my To-tanem. I went with a granite theme. I looked up the various granite colors out there and decided to go with grey, black, and red.

The technique I went with was base black, then either of the three colors I chose, followed by 3 dry brush phases getting lighter with each one. After that the final step was flicking white, then black paint on to create the speckels. After that I painted the rest of the mini.Hope this helps.

Next up is a marble skinned Demigod. I'll get some photos of him up once he's complete.
