I followed the youtube links below for technique, but i dont think he uses citadel paints.

I used a lot of Lead Belcher for a metallic silver basecoat for most of the mechs, as I had bought a citadel paint starter set - https://www.games-workshop.com/en-AU/citadel-essentials-ENG
so all those colours in that set I started with. you can check the link for the complete list

Granted, I was at the start of my painting career when I painted scythe - I would have done the skin tones differently - bugmans glow for base skin, followed by layers of Cadian fleshtone and kislev flesh for highlights - I cringe now when i look at those faces.

For washes, you'd need Nuln Oil (black), Agrax earthshade (brown)

I did pick up other paints as needed - the essentials set had a lot, but nothing for highlights and nothing for the tiger - so picked up some Fuegan orange and Troll slayer orange for the tiger and ox riding dude. The Ox I did a basecoat of Rhinox hide and drybrushed with Praxeti white.

my pieces are here: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/3190786/scythe

you can also see closeups in other photos - happy to answer any questions you have.

I'm now finishing up painting blood rage - which is another story!
