Im in the process of painting my Biel-Tan Eldar Army and with it being a mech list I figured painting the tanks would be a good idea since theyre kinda the focus. Only problem is I can't get the paint scheme for the white to look right.
So far I've spray-coated them all with Chaos Black, founded green areas with Orkhide Shade (OHS) then Dark Angels Green (DAG) before Drybrushing with Snot Green (SG). The white has been based with black, followed by an Astronomican Grey foundation. Then one route I tried was Space Wolves Grey followed by a Skull White (SW) drybrush which I think looks too blue and crappy to be effective *breaks out the spray to recoat it all*. I was thinking of trying SW on top of the Astronomican Grey with a Codex Grey drybrush or would that look too dark?
My main technique is to use watered down paint on each layer and build it up until i have a solid even coverage using 2 or 3 coats and then drybrush with a single layer of 75% Paint 25% water. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance...

Building up for astronomicon gray and blending up to white is probably the best way to go, flat white does NOTlook good on models and should only be used as an extreme highlight.
I'm not sure what you're wanting the SW gray to do though. Do you want a blue tint to it or not?
The SWG was indeed to give a blue tint but like i said it sucks. What do you hink of the Codex Grey drybrush idea over the blended white? Too dark or not worth it?

You'd be better off mixing a tiny bit into the original mixes and still highlighting up to white. The drybrush idea I can't see working at all.
