Default Space marine guys

I'm not a good painter and only have a miracle creation 1 every 20 models...so I need to get an easier color scheme, and I don't want to ruin my marines!! Maybe templar colors, or camo-like umm... lets say eldar old ranger colors ( mix of a dark green and highlights of a lighter green) for my guys, since 3/4 of my army is scouts.. I need some suggestions...

Then I wouldn't use black white or red. Blues and greens or greys would be easier. Go look at the marine chapters on the GW site and see if any color schemes jump out at you.

browns and blues I find really easy to work with, I disagree that reds are difficult... just the same to work with as any colour, steer away from whites and blacks... espceially in the same colourscheme.

Yes, I think that Red is a very easy colour to paint. And white and black do fine in the same scheme. Checkers :P

I didn't say reds were difficult, just that other colors are easier. It seems some people have trouble highlighting with red and since he himself said he isn't a good painter, I figured it may not be a color he would want to use. But I agree that browns are also easy to work with.

Maybe black undercoat (I think I could pull this off.) With a medium green drybrush everywhere, and then a snot green highlights, because those are the only colours I'm good at making theings look good, so they would have jungle colours to fit in with their homeworld, but does that look good?

I was able to do some red guys before, but that took a while...

Ok, my friend got me into raven guard (darn already made a chapter story, but I love raven guard just played an awesome battle with them today!!) so I have a colour scheme, but I know you don't paint it pure black and then make all the chains shiny etc. What do you do for that, I don't want to look like someone who just dunked my guys in black paint and then played with'em...

highlights using greys often work well.
