Welcome to Librarium Online!
My eldars uniform colour is supposed to be Ice blue, but I'm not sure what colour to start with. On guardians and the like I have normally no problems with painting Ice blue directly (have done it earlier on other models), but on big flat areas (such as the tanks and jetbikes) I find it pretty hard. I'm thinking a bit about Mordian blue, would that work or does anyone have other ideas? ...Or will I have to buy a spray gun?
With that light a colour an airbrush would help. A lot. Otherwise, start with darker blues (foundation colour, asurmen blue is it?) and get a bucket-load of patience.
are you using a black or white spray undercoat? try white give it a light asurmen wash, then use ice blue

Ok, I'll try that out! So far I have used black, but white might be better. The only problem with white undercoat would be that some parts are supposed to be painted black, but as I said earlier, I don't have problem with the colour on all models... So I shouldn't have to spray everyone white...

If you paint some white and some black, you will notice a difference in the colors between 2 figures.. White allows bright colors to go on easier, and it is easier to cover white with black, as opposed to covering black with white.
A Spray Gun works wonders when dealing with vehicles. I shudder to think how long it would of taken by hand to base and main coat the Two Falcons, Three Wave Serpents and a Fire Prism I did with the gun
