This is a homebrew scheme based on the Thousand Sons.
The main colours are green, brass, and red.
My general method is to lay down all the base colours for the model, then do all the shading in the recesses before moving on to the highlights.
I don't own an airbrush, so the recipe will mainly consist of brush on paints.
I find the metallic sprays from GW tend to be a little on the transparent side, so an initial undercoat of grey helps.
