Autumn colors

Recommended Posts

I'm painting my GW dwarf army (I know, blaspheme), and I want to paint their cloaks, surcoats and whatnot in autumn colors. I'm thinking dark greens, reds and yellows. I was looking through the triads on the online store and i like the look of the terracotta reds and ochre golds. What would all you painting gurus suggest for my triads?

For greens, Jungle Moss is a good dark green. Highlight it by adding Palomino Gold, or any yellow if you want it a bit brighter. Terracotta reds would be good, though they go a little pink at the upper end (Fired Clay) so you may wish to mix with Burnt Orange for your highlight. The Ruddy Leather/Oiled Leather/Burnt Orange triad in general wouldn't be bad for brownish-orangey leaves. ::): And yes, the Ochre Golds (besides giving you the aforementioned Palomino Gold) would be great as well, and Chestnut Gold is a great golden leather brown. ::):

I like earth tones and fall colour schemes a lot, and use a lot of rust/chestnut/mahagony and ruddy leather/oiled leather/burnt orange. I haven't played a lot with the terracotta triad yet, but the paints to my eye have a pinky/purply undertone I wouldn't use for a true fall colour scheme. Palomino would be my top choice for an autumn type yellow.
