I am painting an armored force of Destroyers (2nd founding chapter of White Scars) to go with my Storm Lords.
The best www guide I can find says their power armour is 'ACID YELLOW'.
Does anyone have any advice about what GW colours to use?
According to the SM collectors guide only the helmet of the Storm lords is yellow. The armor is white/red. Seperated right through the middle. Red on the right, white on the left.
As for the yellow. I'd say Golden yellow w/ Sunburst highlights. It's a darker yellow as far as I can see with a tough of orange blended in.
I you mean entire yellow armor, then I think you're talking Marauders. Those are entirely yellow. They bare a pale-ish yellow. But I'd say Bad moon yellow is way to bright. Sunburst yellow is the way to go IMO
Hmm, do you mean the Marauders? They're the only yellow 2nd founding White Scars chapter I could readily locate (using How to Paint SMs and the Collectors Guide), so I'll assume you mean the same thing...
Anyway, what I would do is:
Paint metallic areas/decorations Chaos Black
Paint solid Sunburst Yellow
Wash (very, very thin) Snakebite Leather
Touch up Sunburst Yellow (where you have unwanted Snakebite)
Highlight Bad Moon Yellow
Extreme Highlight Skull White
Fill in metallics/details
Fairly quick, nice and simple, should give you a nice bright yellow.
I do love painting yellow, not sure why everyone hates it so...

Thanks for the advice.
I already own the half white / half red Storm Lords and was looking at the other White Scar 2nd founding chapters.
Listed in the SM Codex were Marauders, Rampagers and Destroyers.
Now on the GW chapter colour pages Rampagers are Red, Marauders are Yellow but there is no mention of Destroyers. A www search revealed only one site that mentioned Destroyer colours, those being acid yellow power armour with red chevrons on the arms. Their chapter badge being two red crossed axes.
Hence the query about acid yellow, since I always like doing the unusual.
I will paint up a test mini using your suggestions.
