If I were to paint Regal blue on top of chaos black as a striped camo design for Imperial guard cadians would it go on easily or would I have to paint multiple coats.
basically, what I'm asking if it would look nice and visible.
any help would make me
How many coats you'll need really depends on how much thin your paints are. If you get a good, solid regal blue though it -should- stand distinct from the black... but don't expect it to really pop. You may want to add a bit of ultramarines blue to the mix, or a very thin glaze of it to the top, to brighten it up just a touch. Really.. just give something a quick test paint and see how it looks.
You play your game, I'll play mine.
Also whenever painting a 2 color pattern (such as hazzard markings) it is easier to paint the whole area the lighter color and then add the darker color - in this case add the black. I would also recommend starting with a white base as the blue will show up better and you shouldn't have the problem of having to do too many coats to get an even coverage.
I'd agree with Slorak, start with a white basecoat, then paint the blue, then the black after, this will give you a nice strong blue.
If I paint the blue first then wouldn't it be hard to paint the black around since the majority of the fatigues will be black.
I'll try painting a few test models first, changing my approach each time.
besides that, how would you go about painting the camo. I'm thinking of a stripe design but is there a preferred method out there.

black will cover anything. Other colors tend to have a harder time covering over black. It may take patience but the overall look should be better.
As for painting camo patterns - I believe the US GW site has several ideas on painting camo (I think it is in the IG section).
