Welcome to Librarium Online!
I think I'd still be painting two-tone zombies if not for gleaning advice from different sources, which makes me curious what some of you have learned.
Here's some things that come foremost to me:
1. Thin your paints.
2. Shake spray primer thoroughly.
3. Good brushes do matter.
So any ideas to add to the list?
The best advice I was given was:
"please stop. You're crap. Think of the poor guy who modeled this and you're vandalising thier work".
However, I've not been one to follow other's advice
Diabolus fecit, ut id facerem!
Paint with HEAPS OF LIGHT
That made such a big difference to my painting it was amazing
But I call to God, and the LORD saves me.

For a simple and effective good look. Layer dry brushing with gradually lighter colours (easy). Then wash it with an ink to blend the effect (also easy).
This is a technique which LO's very own Leech taught me. It enables even cack handed fools like me to get good effects. I can't stress how easy this technique is especially for the results on can get from it:

The greatest ink on earth:
2 Parts Brown Ink, 2 Parts Dark Green Ink, 1 Part Black Ink, and fairly heavily watered down.
You can apply this to just about anything as a weathering effect and it will look awesome. I apply this mainly to metals, brickwork, wood's & clothing. It is fantastic at making things looking more worn.
When painting models look for the 3 main colours and paint those on first, ink, and then highlight.
When painting on the standard colours for the first layer, my favorite brush to use is the Small Flat Drybrush.
And then they all laugh!
On such afternoons, when I've finished trying and am cleaning my brushes. . .in the thunderdome of my mind. . .their still laughing!
Ooo! Ooo! Ooo!! I have one!

What? Ohh.. painting. *grins* I suppose the best advice was thin your paints and to do multiple layers, rather than one thick and solid layer.
