Primed Well he was primed and the washed in exactly the same way and Skeleton number one!  In fact I used the picture of him to illustrate the priming above as it was the same in all  respects (oh and I forgot to take a picture of number one in primer!). I’m not going to  repeat this bit as it’s to long. Washed I applied a coat of Mid Brown Wash all over the bones. I did go back a blob some more  on in places that I had either missed or I felt needed a bit more shade and I did remove  some of the bigger pools with my brush if to much had collected in particular place  
Bones 1. Skeleton Bone, for this one I painted more of the  bone in this colour but still leaving the brown wash to  show in the depressions.   2. Skeleton Bone plus Matt White. 3. plus more Matt White.

Matt Varnish Then they were given two coats of Anti-Shine Matt  Varnish. Be even more careful when painting on the matt  varnish. Don’t use the spray version of the Anti-Shine Matt  Varnish as it can react with the Humbrol gloss. Basing The bases are 25mm square plastic ones that come with the  skeletons. I used superglue to stick the model in place,  blowing over them to prevent the glue whitening off on the  models. I then filled in between the models bases and square base  with Hombase filler and then left that overnight to go hard. 
1. I then glued on some sharp sand with PVA glue and  painted it Oak Brown. 2. I then dry-brushed on Monster Brown.   3. I then dry-brushed on Desert Yellow.   4. then I dry-brushed on lightly, Skeleton Bone.  I then added some of the Beige Tufts from Gamers  Grass.  Then some Gale Force Nine: Meadow Blend Flock  stuck on with PVA glue. The final touch is a very light dry-brush of Desert Yellow   on the flock and he’s done.

The Paint I used Army Painter War Paints to paint the  skeletons, mixing up colours to suit my style and  preferences. The names here reference The Mega  Paint Set provides an adequate range of colours for  almost all needs, but you will usually need to mix  colours to get the desired results.
