This has been a long time coming. I went with a pretty simple, quick and easy paint scheme. My base coat for all the armor is plain old Krylon gray primer. I then just did base coat colors with no shading or highlights. I decided I wanted my space marines to be easy to paint so I made up my own "dip" using Liquitex matte gel medium mixed with water and black paint. After some testing to get the right viscosity, I applied it to the whole miniature and what you see is the effect. Of course it's not up to the quality of most of my Protectorate of Menoth miniatures, but I won't be spending as much time playing 40k as I do Warmachine, so I don't plan on putting in as much time or money.
