    Ie the jagged shapes that they have on their armour. I've looked in the codex and it doesn't really explain that well how to do it. I can only get circular shapes with my brush, not jags.

    first things first - get a proper brush. for the Kasrkin shapes a size 2 in good shape or a size 1 should do nicely.

    the jagged shapes are painted from the outside to the inside. so the first thing is to paint the outter color (that little rim) in a jagged shape and then fill the inside with the second color leaving just a little rim of the first.

    hope that explains it.
    Shut up and play.

    you could try this:
    spray armour black.
    put small pieces of tape over parts.
    paint green.

    Use a very stiff brush to form the straight lines you're after, anything remotely soft will give a rounded edge that'll take from the effect. Try a small 000 stiff acrylic brush, works for me.

    well its not to hard , first make fairly rough blodges in the shape of the the jagged shapes you wanted ( in what ever colour suits the aromur ) , then after that use a brush like what steve said to do the fine lines ( in a lighter complimentry colour ) make sure ther thin and jagged or youll lose the effect . hope that helps .
