I'm just wondering what the exact paint colours are for the Imperial Fists?
William Davies blog that givesa you a deep yellow colour rather than a bright yellow colour. He uses Citadel's Vomit Brown, Bleached Bone and Skull White as well as Vallejo's Yellow ‘Game Colour’ Ink and Brown ‘Game Colour’ Ink.
I di mine by undercoating black, dheneb stone, then heavy drybrush of golden yellow twice. Then wash very heavily with badab black and edge highlight with golden yellow to taste.
Also an imperial fists related note - The etched brass symbols from forgeworld are absolutely amazing on their shoulder pads. Well worth a look.

I went for the brighter yellow (almost to orange) rather than the deeper one, which i think can come across as almost a dirty yellow when i wanted the bright vibrant yellow.
Basecoat white and give two thin coats of golden yellow. I then used a severly watered down dark flesh (i think its been awhile since i did it, it was one of the richer orange browns) as a wash and then layered on four more coats of thinned golden yellow a final highlight was done of 50/50 golden and badmoon. Ive put a pic up below of them.
Oh you can use iyanden sun basecoat over a black undercoat and then layer on the golden yellow, however i find that the colour it gives tends to be a lot more bad moon yellow than using a white basecoat.

For a table top scheme try army painters yellow spray then use an ogryn flesh or sepia wash. Use a touch of bad moon yellow (is it still made actually?) to highlight.
