Contemplating the flesh tones on my Warband Undead  Undecided

What colours are people using for Zombie Flesh? I use vallejo paints. Pastel Green I quite like but its almost white and doesn't stand out enough methinks.....

What else could I use?

Vallejo green grey number 971 with a green or brown wash might work well

Lower extremities would be almost burgundy, due to lividity. Otherwise a grey/green colour, pale and tending mote to grey.

I still have 2 pots of rotting flesh, but didn't want to use them on my zombies, as the ghouls were painted in that colour  Cheesy





Rotting flash, heavy thraka green wash, rotting flesh drybrush on raised area's and then very dry white drybrush  Wink

Oh and the blood splatter is just regular baal red wash painted/pooled on

Coat d'arms flesh (it's quite pale) green ink wash, flesh highlights, then muddy highlights over the whole figure!
