    Wrong forum.

    Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:

    1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant

    2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers

    3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC

    how about in black templar colours? that might work.
    if you are reading this signature, then you are wasting you're time, and i am wasting my time by writing it, so run along now, jimmy, run along.

    If you want an easy, good looking, albeit mildly time consuming way to paint it, I would say go with this.

    Prime the Model Black

    Wet Dry brush it scorched brown. (by wet dry brush I mean get a stiff brush covered in paint, and then use quick back and forth motions over the entire model.

    Medium wet Dry brush the model bleached bone. (easy enough)

    Again, Medium wet dry brush the model skull white.

    This should give you a model that is mostly white, however has shading for the deeper parts of the armor and blackened joints, the raised portions of the armor should be a rich white at this point.

    Im trying to picture the dread at work, but from here I would start painting important parts black, the ankle plates, the shoulder pads, the wrist covers, some of the lines on the guns, any large flat surface on the model in reality.

    From here use a very very fine brush to do shadow gray highlights along the edges of some of the black, you should be able to get a feel at where to do that when your painting the model, if not take it to any GW store, the guys there know the tactic I am talking about.

    If you want quick, prime it black and paint the details in. For metal, just drybrush BG metal. For other colors, you will have to layer up, but it's still quicker. Plus you can paint it with just black and BG metal if you're lazy.
