My army Fluff says that they come from a world with only 2 hours a day of sun and there are lots of forests on it. As you may guess the colour scheme of the army is green and black. The trops are going fine but the tanks look quite ... strange.
Does anyone have any ideas how to paint them?
Could you tell us how you have been painting the tanks so far? My army uses a black and green scheme and I think I really only used alternating passes of green and black spray paint then added some blotches of other colors later on. Sometimes if the light is weird it looks bluish though...You realize the absurdity herein right? I assume you've also come up with a way to justify it.a world with only 2 hours a day of sun and there are lots of forests on it.

RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
Just saw this thread- have you settled on a paint scheme?
Personally id go for something like catachan green with a dark grey (codex grey/chaos black) banding

why not make it very light, the armor and tanks, so they can see each other? or at the very least have reflective stripes and chevron on the back of the personal armor and the tanks, that'll give it a nice twist!

After painting alot of tanks in different color schemes and the likes Ive settled on the tired and true way of painting Russ's. Take yout darker color in this case black and paint most of the taknk in it. Then take a dark green and paint the guns and raised armor and the sponsons. It will look very childish at this point but wait. Now take a bunch of different dirt colors and water them down. Uses these washes to make the tank look dirty and it will take on a whole new look. Then try adding some real fine grain dirt near the sides and tracks. Paint that dark brown and highlight with a muddy color. Good luck
First, these kinds of camo patterns are really cool:
Essentially green and black (darker green also goes well).
Also, now this may not work with vehicles, but during WW2 many night-fighters were actually painted in very white-ish colours, usually whites and greys; the idea was that a mottled white/grey pattern would blend in better with the night sky, as pure-black aircraft would actually create something of a pitch black blob offset from the slightly-lit night (star and moonlight).
There's an example. It seems wierd, yes, and may not fit a tank (looks more winterish) but it's just an idea. Otherwise a lot of people have made good points. I'd go with something like the British green/black scheme myself, I think it looks cool, and it'd be relatively easy; catachan green and chaos black, drybrushed with camo green (even over the black) might look good.

i had a similar problem.... sort of.
my dark angels, after painting black and then dark angels green to give that solid colour still did not look "dark". so i inked it. Got a black ink, watered it down a bit and then painted the whole model with it, then picked out glowing bits again in their original colours.
now they look dark!... a little blotchy, but in 100 marines on the board i never notice. have a little practice with it because it could ruin your effort getting the models to what they are at the moment. water the ink down to almost a fill in the corners strength and then play around with it to get a shadowy look
Ok fellows we have a difficult task, so we have to be more deadly than everyday.

This is really not thought out well. Plants need carbon dioxide and water and sunlight for photosynthesis. They can't carry out photosynthesis enough on your world, so it i unlikely there are many forests.
