Painting my "Hell Knights" rifle squad (Cadian Imperial Guard with Pig Iron Heads)
First thing I do is select the base color. In this case I chose a dark brown. I used a Rustoleum cammo spray paint as my base cote. Krylon makes a cammo paint system as well but the local Walmart doesn't carry that line anymore. These paints are designed for people who think painting their pickup in a cammo pattern will actually help them sneak up on Deer and Turkey and other woodland critters. No shit they really believe that.
Anyhow after I base cote them then started blocking in the cammo pattern I've selected for this army in a warm medium brown.
