Hello my fellow denizens of Commorragh! This is my first post and I am new to the hobby so bear with me. I'm looking for some ideas on how to paint white armor, and what colors would go well with it as highlights on the edges of the armor. I already have some personal fluff I'm going to call them the Kabal of the Deathly Chill, so I was wondering if anyone knows how to give white a cold hue of sorts. I've already primed them white if that helps in anything. Thanks everyone!

Check out Wilku's entry in the Archon's Challenge.
He painted a Laeman in white shaded with Shadow Grey. It is BEAUTIFUL. You might be able to pull that off with armor. http://thedarkcity.forummotion.com/t2037-hq-edition-comment-thread-wilku

I'm going to be doing a Dark Eldar army with white and black armour, with green for a spot colour.

To give a colder hue, I'd shade with Shadow Grey, as Evil suggests, and stick to "colder" colours such as blue and green for your spot colours. Use as little red, yellow and brown as possible, and you should do alright.

A great colour to start with for general white is Astronomican Grey, though. That's what I use for my Craftworld Eldars white ( http://thedarkcity.forummotion.com/t120-my-craftworlders], I however use Vallejo white for the highlights instead of citadel skull white, I find it quite useless.

Oh, and indeed, shadow/fenris grey makes an excellent shade on white. I didn't do that on my Eldar, but a bit like that on my Incubi's helmets.
