I am pating a wave serpent using the alaitoc paint of blue and yellow I undercoat it using chaos black and then start using coats of yellow and it took for ever 5+ coats to get it to full yellow and it looks kinda bad. On a falcon i tried the same method but instead of going straight to yellow i painted the yellow parts white it didnt help much. What should i do?
Black undercoat is the killer here. Light colours, especially yellow, never cover black completely.
But if you've already sprayed it black I suggest grey, then white, then yellow.
Yellow over blue is almost as bad. If you do blue and yellow, do the yellow first.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
depending on what kind of yellow you are looking for - you could start with a brown color (not too dark) as a base and then start with your yellows. You could also start with an orange as well.
Unfortunately with yellow you are almost always resigned to do several coats. I suggest you make sure that your paints are thin as the overall appearance will be a lot smoother when you get done with all of your layers.

Thats what i was about to say...when using the brighter colors of the Citadel Range (Yellows Blood red, some light Browns like Graveyard earth...) its almost always better to prime the model in white or light grey but even then you have to apply 2-3 _thin_ Coats of paint for an even colored surface.
