    Hey guys, vampirism newbie here!

    I've been painting 40k for a few years, but a vampire counts army has always been my dream. I'm focusing on an army with a paint scheme similar to the malignants, and I was wondering if after spraying skeletons white they need to be done over in bone before the wash? I have alot of skeletons to paint and am keen to avoid undue layers of paint to mask the detail.
    cheers guys :)

    It's mostly a matter of colour - adding that bone layer would slightly change the final shade your skellies would have. Pure white with black shade gives really clean skeletons, while bone base with a brown shade would make a dustier one ;)
    Maybe normal painted layered on the spray paint is more durable, as it's usually done that way, but I'm not sure if that's true - maybe just my purism speaking ;)

    All the next questions regarding painting you can post in the Dying to Help section, we are happy to help ;)
