My little brother is going to start a Beil Tan army and my main questions would be... What are the colors used? It looks like skull white and a green but which green? What undercoat should he use white or black? Do you use a lot of blending and mixing when you paint or is it just the regular colors?

From what you can see on the pics of Biel-Tan Guardians it appears that the white have been painted on Shadow grey. The green is probably dark angles green followed by Snot green and a final thin highlight of scorpion green.
The Biel-tan color scheme is really irritating to piant, just so you know (all the whites fault).
Is your brother just starting? If so he prolly shouldnt try some of those harder teechniques. I'd just prime 'em white then pait the Shuricat black abd desired head, chest armor pieces either snot or DA green.
It's been a minute.
Yeah I have to agree with Pancakes. It kinda depends on how old your brother is, as younger people tend to have a short attention span, and painting all that complicated stuff might just put him off.
I mean, i'm what, 16 and I have just undercoated my Dark Eldar in chaos black, and that was dead boring...
I just have to give this question a go as Iâ€™m pretty much a eldar painter...
The normal Biel-tan probably have the color that Da Mighty sad. And yes white can be a hard color to paint well.
If he decides to go with white I shod do it like this.
1. prime the model white.
2. use a wash that is not to dark use a blue or gray shade. I shod probably use a shadow gray with some white in the mix. Just keep it thin and watered down.
3. Paint a layer of white, but keep the shades.
4. More layers of white if you need it.
As for the green I think its good to do it like Da Mighty sad.
Still no one say that you have to paint Biel-Tan green and white if you donâ€™t want to.
There is another way that I use to paint white as well. Its a bit slower and you need to do a lots of layering.
1. prime white
2. basecoat of light gray, blue
3. paint the edges white
4 ad a bit gray/blue to the white and paint this on showing the white on the edge.
5 repeat step 4 but ad more and more gray/blue for every layer. For every new layer let the previous layer show.
