GreysGreys are something I'm getting increasingly comfortable with, and this color blend was just thrown together on the fly. If not otherwise noted, water was added to the paint at a 1:4 ratio to thin it out enough that I could get some of the blending done well.
Grey Layer 1: 1 drop SS Camo Black Brown, 2 Medium Sea Grey, 1 WaterFor the underbelly, I wanted an almost-white shade of grey, and I wanted it to be slightly blue to contrast the all-brown the majority of the army used. This precluded my typical go-to grey color (medium grey) but gave me a couple of options on midtone that I wouldn't have usually used. I settled on Medium Sea Grey for its tint, and was pleased with the final result.

Grey Layer 2: 2 drops Medium Sea GreyThe second layer was the pure midtone for this layer, Medium Sea Grey.

Grey Layer 3: 1 drop Medium Sea Grey, 1 drop Wolf GreyI went into the wolf grey to make the model seem even colder in palette, as it has some great blue undertones.

Grey Layer 4: Wolf GreyAll Wolf Grey for this one, as I was painting quickly and didn't want to bother with cutting paint or mixing in appropriate dots of colors.

Grey Layer 5: 1 Wolf Grey, 1 Skull WhiteA typical final layer for me; the final highlight mixed with white

Brown Layer 1: SS Camo Black BrownSS Camo Black Brown is my go-to color for browns or generic warm-palette darkening of colors, so I started the browns there! Grey Wolves are typically two-toned, with grey/white underneath and a brown top; that's what I was aiming for with this model.

Brown Layer 2: 2 SS Camo Black Brown, 1 Medium Grey, 1 Medium Sea GreyThe only difference between the first layer of the grey and this layer is the addition of the Medium Grey; you can see from this how much a single drop of paint can change a color blend!

Brown Layer 3: 2 Medium Grey, 1 Med Sea GreyAt this point I decided I had some cross-resonance between the brown and grey layers, so I pulled a drop of the grey midtone into the brown to balance the colors a bit towards a cooler palette.

Brown Layer 4: 1 Medium Grey, 1 Elf Skin, 1/2 Leather BrownAfter the previous layer, I wanted to get back into a warmer tone. Since the Confrontation werewolves had leaned heavily on Leather Brown, I used a hint of it in this wolf to get his color scheme to match theirs a bit - not enough to blend in, but enough to echo the colors in them.

Rest of the modelFor the rest, I just blew through a quick progression on the bone. Since the Werewolves have a lot of reds in them, I went with it for his armor. Since I was a bit bored, I did some lightning effects within the armor just to make it seem a bit more otherworldly. Once the red was done, I did some non-metallic gold to finish the model off. Unfortunately, since I was rapid-firing through layers, I didn't document most of these.
