i am a painter of satisfactory level..but i am having problems with getting the right shade of green with which to highlight my dark angels ( obviously they are painted DA Green)
any suggestions tips/advice is much appreciated
If you are going for a more natural less bright overall tone to the green - I would suggest adding a bone white to your base color to lighten it. This will mute the color while lightening the shade. If you add white it will tend to get too bright.

Then there is the third option. Ad a bit of yellow in the green I like that effect. Try for your self and see what you find is the best for you.
I'd mix some DAGreen with some lighter green as Goblin Green (There's probably something better to use but I can't remember the GW color names). This will probably give you the best result if you don't want an extreme difference between the basecolor and the highlight, then I'd use either the bonewhite, a light grey or a yellow to make the highlight.
I do 50/50 of dark angels green and snot green, then around the extreme edges snot green. If its to bright give it a wash of green ink.
I am to lazy to highlight so my models don't contrast much but I know the theory behind highlighting. Suggest that with the two colors being used, go 75/25 then 50/50. 25/75 if you want the color to jump off the model.
