Default Highlighting Dark Angels Green

Well I'm trying to push my painting skills up to the next level for me. So I'm here to ask how do or what color should I highlight dark angels green?

You could mix in about 2:1 Dark Angels Green : Bleached Bone and then keep adding BB for finer highlights, which is what I do.

If not, maybe something like snot green or catachan green.

Why, why would you say that?
I hope you mean you hate painting them, and not that you hate the models themselves......

I lighten my DA green with scorpion green, its adds to the "bugginess" if you will, of my 'nids. It gives it an almost fluorescent glow, and can look pretty cool, depending on what you're painting.

For Dark Angels Green, I always added more and more snot green to the mix, until I had pure snot green.
Then, if you want more highlights, you add more and more bleached bone to the snot green.

My Dark Angels have been highlighted with a roughly 60:40 mix of DA Green and Goblin Green, then sharper highlights of 40:60 DAG and GG. Its subtle, if nothing else.. for those wanting more impact, use Snot green as previously mentioned.
