I start off by giving the models a black basecoat and then painting white on all the parts of the model which will eventually have colour. Then I put dark angles green over the top of the skull white while leaving a few bits of the armour untouched for the rank of the warrior (The parts I leave white on a normal fire warrior are some layers of the thigh pads, knee pads, sections of the large shoulder plate and the large ankle ball on the foot).
Once all green has been applied I then give that green some volume by applying a lighter green around the edges. I do this by mixing dark angels green with regal blue and then lightening it with skull white. Once this has been applied I then clean up the model by using chaos black to get rid of points where I have missed the mark or slipped a bit. Once the model is looking sharp and clean I apply my burnished gold to the eye lenses the bolts on the weapons the sensors on the wrists and so on.
The logo on the shoulder plate is simply done in white; the commander of the squad however has his logo done in burnished gold. Pathfinders are done in an overall lighter green and stealth models reversed (black for the armour green as the under garments).
