Here are some basic paint jobs on about ten figures for a Daemonhunters army. This is only the first set.
This client is doing his own basework, that is why they are just plain black.
These were painted by Andy Harward, our most productive painter. He's painted eighty projects including twenty armies in the last year. He keeps notes of his techniques and what works, passing it along to new painters if asked.

Anyway, these are hybrid method, part solid paint with glazes both under and over the paint. A lot of the parchment and cloth is a wet layer that is allowed to partially dry when bone white paint is introduced. The paint tends to bleed into the more liquid layer. The dark black on the silver armor is Vallejo Black. I'm pretty sure the armor is Gunmetal Grey with a highlight of GW Chainmail wet blended on.
The decals are from various sources, Sisters of Battle decal sheets at least, probably some Bretonnians stuff in there (Andy is working on a 8,000 point Bretonnian army on the side).
Here are some Ultramarines he did this week:http://www.bluetablepainting.com/vie...?galleryID=811 These aren't the best Andy can do, just some solid basic paint jobs (time constraints and all).
One way to get decals to stay flat is to cut part of the decal-- this keeps it from buckling especially on a Space Marine shoulderpad. You can also put on some Matte Varnish.
how much would an army like that cost to get painted?

Pssst.... give me kudos....
I have download-able spreadsheets that show all costs to have an army done here:
As a rule of thumb:
Cost of models = C
Cost to have models painted = C x 1.5
Cost to have models assembled = C x 0.5
If you're asking about the Daemonhunters specifically, the total cost for assembly, painting, and return ship was $169.
PS- you can find a spreadsheet for Ultramarines there, too (Space Marines).
so what exactly is this "glazing technique" i read about on the website?
