Depends how complicated you're looking for. There's a lot of preference involved as well. My method is really labor intensive right now. The Wraithlord's Tsons are awesome, you might ask him how he got his done. There's a few others around here for sure.

There's the equivalent of a tutorial in my project log, done on a terminator lord, but so far the pics only cover getting the blue done, and they're not the greatest. Check out the sig if you're interested.

Beyond that, just keep doing what you're doing, and ask around.

Whats wrong with the GW one?

I think its fairly good!

You could always change the yellow to a more gold color if you please.

Are ya new to painting? Try out that GW Tutorial, its pretty good!

You could try a scheme like this:

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
