What colours (including primer) are best for 28mm skeleton minis?

A 28mm skeleton mini figure for wargaming, painted using the authors paint colour mix.Here’s my recipe for painting 28mm skeleton minis for wargaming and dioramas.

This is the combination I use for my guide on how to paint skeleton minis, Other colour combos are of course possible, this is just what I find best for the finish I prefer for my – dirty, battle-worn, undead.

Colours to use for skeletons mni figures:

As said, a combination of Citadel and Vallejo paints gives me the finish I prefer.

If you want a more stylized finish, a black primer can work well while using Citadel White Scar as a base, then apply a thin wash of Citadel Agrax Earthshade and highlight again with White Scar.
