Is there a program out there that would let me "paint" models? Like GW has an interactive Space Marine program to allow you to try color schemes, but I am wondering if there are any better ones out there. Does the Interactive Army Builder they sell do this?
Somewhere on this website forum is a link on how to use photoshop to paint your models digitally. The gist of it is to use the trace tool and select the model, and then change the hue to whatever color you want. I'm sure someine else will come along with the link.

One way that i try out different colours, is by using the army painting feature in Dawn of War. I find it a pretty good way of testing out assorted random paint schemes. Its not 100% accurate, but it is still pretty fun.
I play my 40k with friendly fire.
Finally fixed the link!
Well, the GW website only has SM and IG painters, incase you were wondering, and I know of no other similar ones. I don't think the Army Builder does come with one.
As far as Photoshop, I've tried it and man is it hard to get right! Trying to get the right colour, then select the right body part and then getting the hue to work.
With Dawn of War, I completely agree. I often play around with paint schemes on there, although there is little control over the overall outcome, but it's still good. I would only give it about 65% for helpfulness though.
I have Dawn of War, and I have found it somewhat helpful, but Id like more control. Doing kneepads, gloves, that sort of thing.
your just going to get in there and do dome test models....i use dawn of war for the basics as well, but if you want to really get nit picky, your just going to do some test models. I do about two or three before im happy with the overall look im trying to achieve(i also sometimes do this when converting troops), and then if the other tests arent close enough to change, then i just nail polish remover it then reprime it and start all over again. What has happened before is then i cant choose which one, then old lady luck comes in....

Yep, Dawn of War is the way to go. It'll be the closest that you could find to what you want I think...

If your handy with an ink pen you can sketch the model onto A4 then make copies of it to try out as many colour ideas as you like.
I use Derwent Graphic and Artists pencils to colour fill.
I do this with many of my complicated models.
Bonus when your finished is you have a nice drawing of your mini!
