I thought it came out nice when I did highlight from black through many layers of grey, up o almost white, and then gave it a blue wash.

Good to be green

I use a method that was printed in the WD when the SM codex came out.

It's basically spray black undercoat, edge highlight Mechanicus Standard Grey then Dawnstone. I tend to then put a little Nuln Oil on to finish. Looks like this.



Maybe not the best method in the world but certainly one of the simplest.

I use a black undercoat then highlight the edges with a thin (1:1 paint/thinner) layer of grey, then highlight more with a little thinned out white. I use Vallejo paints, so I don't know what the GW color names would be since they changed them...
