    Highlighting Dark Angels Green

    Well I'm trying to push my painting skills up to the next level for me. So I'm here to ask how do or what color should I highlight dark angels green?

    I shall not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will allow it to pass over and through me. And when the fear has passed I will turn the inner eye to see its path. There will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    adding a bit of white will always get the job done, other than that, look for a slightl lighter paint in your hobbystore... something between golbin and dark angel green

    Mix in some yellow rather than white can give different effects. Smot green is good as a stark hilight or for doing the edges of power armour.

    OK, 3 ways:
    -If you want a pure GW colour, Catachan Green will do you fine as a 'duller' finish, or Goblin Green will be good for a nice bright finish.

    -Mix a little white into the DA green. This will make it look quite cold as you work up though, so definately think about adding some yellow (à la Mad Cat) to warm it up a little.

    -Paint the whole area monochrome (ie: black and white, blending with greys; or use browns and white), and cover the whole area with Dark Green Ink. This looks quite nice and deep, and is nice for a change, but is very shiny (use some matte varnish to kill that).

    For a smoother transition to your highlights I would mix either camo green or goblin green into the dark angel green. maybe start with a 50/50 mix and keep adding more of the lighter color. You can do the same with yellow or even white if that is the way you want to go. With adding white to green you will tend to end up with a minty green color the more white you add. So be careful.

    Cheers,

    though i only use DA Green on small areas of my marines (helmet, knee pads, shoulder pads, elbow pads, etc.), i use a tiny bit of Bleached Bone GW color.

    i have also started experimenting with Rotting flesh,as it is a bit green. just play around with colors, that's what i had to do. also makes some cool stuff.

    Quick drybrush of scorpion green ought to do the trick

    Just kidding.. but I have seen them done like that.

    As far mixing colours go, I'd stay well away from Snot Green and scorpion green.. they're just far too bright to be effective.. plain old goblin green mix should do the trick
