    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.

    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.

    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 don’t think that would be s dark, as you want.

    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.
