What paints to buy to match df sets? 11 Months, 1 Week ago  
Can anybody suggest specific paints that I should buy ti match...

Ice caverns
Hellscape
Den of Evil
Caverns sets
I would like to paint some custom pieces for these sets but Im unsure which paints would help me match them.

Any technique tips are also welcome and appreciated. Thank you in advance.

For Den of Evil, I primed with Chaos Black (any spray black will work but the Games Workshop spray primers are excellent, as are Army Painter). First coat dark gray, drybrush over with a lighter gray until you get a close match. The tan highlights are fairly close to Bone Shadow by Reaper. You can get an idea of the color by looking at this post:

For Caverns, try these tips from Crioux:

Good luck in your painting! Sorry, never tried to match Hellscape or Ice Caverns.
