Any ideas on how I could paint some green armor? I'm wanting a dark color like dark angels green but I'm not sure how to keep it looking like metal and not just flat green.
Can you be a little more desriptive, like what army. IG if you mean armor as in tanks. Dark Angels for troops. But cadians maybe.
It's armor for a High Elf Army; Dragon armor and/or Pheonix guard armor
use dark angels green then a green ink or something
That's what I was planning on doing, but will that make it metallic looking?
So, your saying you want a dark green color that looks like metal, which is glossy?
Well there is two way you can go about doing that. first would be to put a gloss coat over the figure. And second, by using Nail polish, you could selectively cover certain areas.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
Mix Mithril silver and Dark angels green to make your armor green and shiny, it does tend to make the green a little lighter depending on your mixing quantities but it is a good method that worked for my IG

I would try a base coat of dark angels green, then mix bolt gun metal with dark angels green and do a light dry brushing to lift out the edges and give it a metallic look, then follow up with a dark green ink.
I have painted metallic green armor by just using bolt gun with a dark green wash, but I donâ€™t think that would be s dark, as you want.
Thanks for all the tips!
What about painting all the armour chainmail silver. Then giving it a few coats of watered down green ink mixed with either watered down black/brown ink. This will give you a metal effect with a hint of green in the rescesses and will give the impression that there is a green tinge to the metal.
