    I'd go as normal skin but with a bit of added purple.
    So something like: VMC-Ivory (because it's always good to have this in everything), VGC-Hexed Lichen or Imperial Purple (I'd rather use the Hexed one. From there it's easy to get the other with a bit of blue if needed), and of course some skin color (Heavy Skintone, Basic Flesh, Light Flesh, etc).
    Ohh and for such a desaturated purple there is a good VGC paint too: Heavy Warm-grey (purplish grey)

    great alternative would the Nocturna's "Malefic Flesh Set" (also made by vallejo).
    Forgot, that it works again.

    There is a little tool called powerpalette from reaper: http://www.reapermini.com/PowerPalette/

    it gives back the approximate reaper colors, then you'd need to convert it to vallejo ( https://www.dakkadakka.com/wiki/en/P...tibility_Chart ).

    From the video it looks a more saturated blue with purple shadows (very different from the first pic). The PP gives the following colors for skin:
    - shadow: 09024 Amethist Purple --> about VGC 72142 Heavy Purple / VGC Imperial Purple (016) / VMC BlueViolet (960)
    - base: 29832 Concrete Grey / 09090 Misty Grey --> nothing really, but looks close to VGC Sombre Grey (048) / VMC Oxford Blue (807)
    - highlight: 09063 Ghost White --> VGC Ghost Grey (046) / VMC Flat Aluminum (993)

    edit:
    used this screencap for the PowerPalette:
