Meanie Greenies

Ok, so Farmer_G, this is how you paint your dudes...
1) Paint it black, as per the previous post.

2) Paint it green - Orkhide shade foundation paint on all the green bits.
3) More green - Dark Angel green, liberally 'wet brushed' over all the raised parts.

For anyone watching, I call this technique wet brushing:

Take a tatty brush (oddly, cheap plastic fibre brushes for kids work best) dip very lightly into paint, and then wipe a little bit off onto your mixing pallet/ CD - see it more as evenly distributing the paint over the bristles, rather that actually removing much paint.
Then vigerously run the brush over the raised parts of your mini. Back in the day when I wanted to churn out my Dark Angels as quickly as possible, I did this straight over black. The benefit was speed and vague differentiation of raised vs deep parts. The downside (I see now) is that they're not really fit for public viewing!
