Well, that's a very generic question...
I'd love to help, however. What colors do you like? What kind of feel do you want your army to have? What kind of terrain do you want your army based around?

For Urban (city) style, I'd use Greys, Blacks, and Whites.
For Snow style, I'd use whites, greys, and blues.
For Water style, blues, greens and grays/whites
For Desert style, reds, browns, blacks (for browns, you can use ANY shade, from graveyard earth to bleached bone
For Forest style, greens, browns, and blacks
For magma/lava style, oranges, reds, yellows, blacks

Orks normally have green skin, so I'd go with that for them. However, I have seen white and purple orks, and it looks good as well. Be creative (I think I'm going to try some black orks!)

Tyranids can basically be any color you want, so I can't specify more (read ahead) without more detail.

That's a basic sketch out. I'd be able to go more in detail if you posted what "feel" you wanted your army to have (the more information you give me, the better I'll be able to get you a scheme that'll suit what you want)

My brother's have pink skin. There's never any confusion as to which orkz are his. Ever.

What the hell is a masterclass scheme? Its just choosing colours for godsake! :P



Just take a look at colours, grab an example sheet from a generic paint shop, you can probably get some cards aswell, then just mix and match till youve got something youre happy with.

Generally, because i happen to like these colours, i generally adhere to these colours red/orange|green|purple.....and metallics are metallics.

Yup...I don't like contrasting colors much as well, I tend to stay away from reds&blues together and stuff like that (although sometimes it does look good, like orange decals on the blue armor in the Sa'Cae sept (or whatever it's called :P))
