i was wondering if someone could tell how to do the shading for white because i don't really understand what colours to use
also what colour should i do the lining in
Shading in white is one of the tougher paint jobs, i find...
I start with codex gray as the base color, then lighten up to fortress gray, then a mix of 50/50 fortress and skull white. note that by this time, you should have codex only in the deepest parts, and most of the surface should be the 50/50 mix.
If you have less than that for the surface, it will end up looking like a gray surface.
If you have 50/50 mix everywhere, it will not look shaded.
Keep the pure skull white for highlights.
IF you want a really really white surface, you can go 75 skull white/25 fortress.
I think you can try a light wash with black ink, but i find that hard to control properly (i always end up feeling that that it was more gray than anything else.)
It's only a lance of Grail Knights... won't hurt at all!
Actually there best method for doing white is to prime with white, then you can easily shade with blue or borwn depending on whether the mini has a cold or warm feel.
For cool white, use a vrey light blue, like lightning, with a final shade of shadow grey. Make sure to keep you paint very thin, as it doesn't require much paint at all to sahde white.
For warm white use a vomit brown or similar colour, and use bestial brown for a final shade, again follow the advice from above.

For white, I'd undercoat black! I find the contrast you create this way brightens the white. For the shade, it all depends what 'sort of' white you want. You can shade it with (citadel) bubonic brown mixed with bleached bone basecoat and adding layers of white with every layer up unto you get to white only, or use shadow/space wolf grey for a more blue-ish white or codex/fortress grey (as mentioned above) for grey shadows. Mind, white is a delicate color, too much shade and it'll look more grey, blue or brown and to little and the shadowing won't stand out as much as you like. Good luck!
this is a good link. i gotta go, so i can't write more. i have personally never used this, as i have no interest in white.
kk thanx a lot for the help and it is cool white for my sisters of battle
