Breaman 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...

Asamodai 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.

Moriouce 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.

while I did take some ques from the night lords, they are not night Lord space wolves, I use silvers and more cold colours then the night lords which, though using blue in a similar way, are fully set for warmer colours for accents.

neferhet for space marines i highligt the obvious angular parts and also, on the flat surfaces, some thin lines near the edges of the flat area. If you have some raised and well visible borders with edges, just highlight that. Flat areas can avoid the highlightin whit some "cheating", using decorations, decals and gluied accessories to fill space.
