dont worry about splish splashing the base or being too neat, its just a basecoat after all :P

After he dries completely, simply slop on the Thraka Green wash, though not to heavy, you want a Sea-green color not a deep "snot" green.

Don't stress to much as to how you spread it on, just let the wash do its magic.

And if you don't like the Index Astartes Sons Of Horus color, I found that if you mix these two bad boys
