I was looking at the paint scheme for the Dark Eldar Raider and Ravager on the Games Workshop webpage, and I was wondering if anyone knew what paints they use. I used Kabalite Green, and highlighted with Sybarite Green, however the over all result was well, too green. How do I get more a cooler blue-ish shade?

Jade Green is a bluish green hue. You can try that. also, a simple blue wash over it can do wonders. test it on a stray model or sprue and see what you think.

I think you need coelia greenshade, it's a turqouise shade.
Also gw has official palettes.
This is all they use for Dark Eldar Black Heart style plate/armour:

I actually had the same question. The GW site implies via their paint recommendation that the base color for a Raider or Ravager is Incubi Darkness, but in most of the pictures that I can see on their site and in the Raiders of Commoragh painting guide, it appears that the basecoat is straight black.

Can anyone who has based one in Incubi Darkness confirm?

Thanks!

Also on the page for the Start collecting Box is a video showing how they do the Armour, the result pretty much looks like the box art.
