I was wondering how painting large areas of gold would work - could I get it to look consistent enough, or should I go a really vivid but bright yellow?
Also highlighting and stuff, what happens there?
I want to do a Tau army with white clothes and silver/gold armour, from Ksi'm'yen.

I am probably the best warhammer player ever.
You will probably get a more even coverage by putting down a light/medium brown base first. That said if you have a large area to cover I would use a larger tank sized brush, reserving the smaller brushes for where the gold color ends and the white begins. This will help get a more even coverage, and it will be much faster. You shouldn't have much trouble highlighting the gold. You could always start with the darker gold, highlight first with the lighter gold, and finally with a 50/50 mix of the lightest gold and silver. I would probably recommend a brown ink wash after the darker gold just to make it more vibrant. You could also start with brass before the darkest gold for extra contrast.
