Firstly, these are the paints you'll need:
Chaos Black (for undercoating)
Space Wolves Grey
Asurmen Blue Wash
Other colours for details are completely optional, however I used:
Baal Red Wash
Leviathan Purple Wash
On to the actual painting:
Stage One; undercoat your chosen head/face with Chaos Black (either spray or from the pot it doesn't really matter)
Stage Two; paint the whole face/head with Space Wolves Grey
Stage Three; wash the Space Wolves Grey area with Asurmen Blue
Stage Four; highlight the face/head with Space Wolves Grey
Stage Five: paint a final harsh highlight of Skull White onto the most prominant areas.
Stage Six; thin down some Asurmen Blue with water and glaze the whole face/head with it
Finishing up; once the glaze from stage six is dry you can detail the face as you see fit. I used Baal Red to shade the eye sockets before adding a dot of Golden Yellow to the eyes. I then applied a glaze of Baal Red around the eyes to proved some shadow to the yellow eyes and to add some character to the face. The inside of the mouth eas painted Mechrite Red and the teeth were painted Dheneb Stone before the whole mouth was washed with Leviathan Purple. Once the wash was dry I re-touched the teeth with Dheneb Stone.
Once again I'd like to apologise for the picture quality, hopefully you can at least make out some of the detail in them. I'll try to take some more photos of the finished head in better light, and if there's interest I can paint another head and try to get better photos of the actual stages.
