The colour, not the models. I finally decided to paint my Emporer's Children 40k chaos marines black and Striking Scorpion, but at first it's a little difficult.
I primed them grey. And even after 3 layers of SS green I don't havew good coverage. So I need a differentt approach. For those that have used this colour how did you go about it. What colour base coat, what colour ink, ,and what colour highlights. Any pictures would be appreciated as well so I can see the end result and have a reference.
I have had this same problem using bad moon yellow, and since SS green is a very yellow green I think they must have used alot of bad moon yellow to make it.
Here is a link to some of my minis that I painted using several shades of green.
I don't know if this is the kind of effect you are looking for. But if it is I'd be glad to offer help on how you can achieve it.

OK here are my Sons of Medusa, done in scorpion green:
Basics - about 3 coats should give you good coverage provided you water it down slightly,
(the spray is naff - stay away from)
If your problem is the grey showing through then more coats, if your problem is the green comming off the grey then your mini is too greasey 0- try dumping it in some warm soapy water for a bit.
If you are still having problem, try adding Acrylic flow enhancer or washing up liquid to the paint
Highlights were done by adding white to scorp green
final ink wash using windsor and neuton inks
