    Dark Angels Green
    Goblin Green-light dry brush
    Rotting Flesh-highlights

    Warpaint-Enchanted Blue for Boys
    Warpaint-Enchanted Blue/Skull bite for Savage orcs
    40K-Beakies(9-14-4),Guard(4-7-2),Orks(34-12-11). FANTASY-Dwarves(15-6-7),Beasts (14-14-1), Skaven (17-17-10) DoC (6-1-2). CYGNAR (28-15-1)

    I can't give you specific color names, but:

    * Basecoat in medium green
    * Wash with bluegreen ink, making sure to get lots in the creases and crevices
    * Paint highlights in the original green
    * Paint smaller highlights on top of the highlights with yellow-green

    For a smoother effect, slowly mix the yellow-green with the green as you work up the highlights. I tend to take the highlights up a lot to make them really lurid so you can see them from a distance.

    Personally, I find ork flesh to be a lot of fun and very rewarding to paint. People are very picky about how human flesh tones go, but turn skin green and you can experiment with lots of different approaches without anyone saying 'That's not right!'.

    what i do is start with a black base and use lighter and lighter shade of greed with dry brushing and the lighter i go the less paint i load on the brush
    it sounds kinda loose and inaccurate but it makes for a natural look

    I start with Dark Angels and mix in Scorpion in increasing amounts for each highlight. This makes for a vibrant green that isn't too disimilar to the icon you've shown.
    No more NG spearmen, thanks! Now I need some pump-wagons!
