Like the way you paint your tanks; do you blend or just use flat colour? I am also painting a wave serpent and just wanted to know.

The base green is several layers of drybrushing.

1) Black Primer
2) Codex Grey dry brush
3) Fortress Grey dry brush
4) White Drybrush
5) Dark Angels Green/Water painted on
6) Snot Green dry brush
7) Goblin Green dry brush
8) Green wash (whatever GW's green wash is called)'

After that I do highlights on specific areas. At this point I've done Snot Green, 50/50 Snot/Goblin Green, and solid Goblin Green. I have one more highlight to do of Scorpion Green. Then the green will be done.

you could save alot of time by simply priming it white and base coating it dark angel green.

I've tried white primmer, and the coverage doesn't come off as good that way. You also don't get the gradient highlights showing through like you do with the grey scale. Now a friend of mine does something similar, but he does use white primmer. However he uses a light black wash over the whole thing first to give it the same kind of effect that I achieve with the grey scale.


Here's the updated pic, last layer of highlighting done, so unless I'm busy tonight I'll start on the vines.



Edit: Here are some examples of how the grey scale affects the painting. Notice the dark recesses. These aren't necessarily achieved with the dry brushing. The grey scale makes a big difference in how the initial Dark Angels green base coat goes down. If you look carefully you can see some gradient in green that isn't created by dry brushing.

It really depends on what finish you want, for me the dry brushing method you are doing makes the paint job look rough , i have always seen eldar as sleek smooth racing car paint jobs.
anyway here are two i did, they are dark angel green on white, post hightlights but pre black vines.
