Perhaps try doing their armor in Ultramarines blue and their helmets either gold, silver, white or black

You should really try out the Games Worshop webiste, there they show you how to paint Space Marines with only 10 colours:

Ultra Marines

Blood Angels

Dark Angels

Space Wolves

Black Templars

To some people, 10 is alot.*
It depends on how well you can paint etc.
Can you highlight or blend? Or are you farely new to painting and would prefer to paint them a flat colour?

indeed 10 colours is a lot!

i only have 2 pots of paint for my DP and she turned out just fine!

Just cause you have loads of paint doesn't automatically give you a good job!!!

Okay mate i will try nad be very simple here. And nice and slow - the basics like.

Im assuming you have the starting colours?

Should do...

anyways:

step one: put some decent music on!! or a decent film! make time fly!!! (nightwish rocks )

Step 2: grab skull white and undercoat, oh, lets say 5 minis. water it down to two blobs of white to one blob of water.

step 3: when the white is dry, and only then, paint the entire armour in blue. doesn't really matter which one, but go as close as you want.

step 4: when dry, paint all areas that are going to be yellow and red, white - makes it stand out more. Be nice and neat take your time...

step 5: paint black on everything that is to be silver. same reason as before.

step 6: paint the white areas with yellow, and the lenses red.

step 7: paint all areas that are to be silver in boltgun metal.

step 8: paint the base green, or add sand if you have it.

there you go! the idea behind doing 5 is that by the time you finish one stage on all of them the first one will be more or less dry.

Haha, man, Im using maybe 35+ colours a model, and I play orks. 10 is nothing ;D



tau1423, check out GW stores they should be able to help you out with the ultramarines, and give you some tips on your painting techniques, a lot of the time I find its easier to learn new things in person rather than internet/book tutorials.

Possibly invest in the 'how to paint space marines' book if need be..
