This is my take on the colour scheme of the Eight Stolen Truths, a splinter warband of the Alpha Legion.

The main colours are green and grey.

General Information:

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 Games Workshop spray cans and brush on paints.

Priming:

  1. Prime the model with Mechanicus Standard Grey

Green (Armour Panels):

  1. Base with Incubi Darkness
  2. Shade the recesses with Nuln Oil
  3. Lightly layer upper facing areas with thinned Kabalite Green
  4. Add a fine highlight of Sybarite Green

Grey (Armour Trim):

  1. Base with Mechanicus Standard Grey
  2. Shade the recesses and around any rivets with Nuln Oil
  3. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with Dawnstone
  4. Add a fine highlight of Administratum Grey to sharp corners

Silver (Details - Chains, Gun Barrels, Vents):

For grenades, replace Nuln Oil with Athonian Camoshade

  1. Base with Leadbelcher
  2. Shade the recesses with Nuln Oil
  3. Highlight the edges with Stormhost Silver
  4. Add a rust effect with thinned Skrag Brown

Pink (Details - Cloth, Wraps):

  1. Base with Screamer Pink
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Highlight the edges with Pink Horror
  4. Add fine points with Cadian Fleshtone

Black (Details - Gun Casing, Armour Ribbing, Cables):

  1. Base with Abaddon Black
  2. Highlight the edges with Eshin Grey
  3. Highlight fine points and sharp edges with Administratum Grey

Brown (Details - Leather Pouches):

  1. Base with Rhinox Hide
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Roughly highlight the edges with Skrag Brown
  4. Add a fine highlight with Ushabti Bone

Blue (Details - Lenses):

  1. Base with Sotek Green
  2. Shade over with Nuln Oil
  3. Layer the middle with Temple Guard Blue
  4. Add a fine highlight of Baharroth Blue mixed 1:1 with White Scar

Gold (Details - Bullets):

  1. Base with Retributor Armour
  2. Shade the recesses with Agrax Earthshade
  3. Highlight the edges with Stormhost Silver
