Can we see some pictures with steps? not just before and after, I would love to see how you get some of those colors done on your guardsmen.

Sure!

I'll make sure to take a few pictures as I paint my way through one of the models, and when it's done I can post some pictures showing the process step by step. For now, all I'll say is that the method I use is not only easy but also fairly quick. Actually it's so simple that it almost feels embarassing to give it away... :)

But stay tuned and I'll soon have a sequence of pictures showing exactly how I do!

Here's the step by step description of how I painted the guardsmen:

Preparation: I primed the model black using the Chaos black spray, then coated the entire model with Baneblade brown using a primitive airbrush. These first two steps are not shown in the image below.

1. Armor, helmet and lasgun: Castellan green.
2. Boots and belt: Abaddon black.
3. Face and hands: Tallarn flesh
4. Parts of the lasgun and bayonet: Boltgun metal.
5. Emblems: Celestra grey.
6. Armor, helmet and lasgun highlights: Elysian green
7. Knife handle: Calthan brown.
8. The entire model: Nuln oil.

This method is very quick and easy to use.
