So I was working on the base for my Arvus, and decided that this would be a good start to adding some useful tutorials to the site! So without further ado, here's how to paint chevrons.
Step 1: Using a fine-tipped brush, paint equal diagonal lines across the area you want the chevrons in using Chaos Black. I then blocked in every other chunk with Chaos Black, then the other blocks using Iyanden Darksun.
Step 2: Mix a batch of 1:1 Iyanden Darksun to Sunburst Yellow onto the Yellow sections. Leave the layer of Iyanden Darksun in the edges.
Step 3: Paint the yellow with pure Sunburst Yellow. Don't glob the paint on, as the yellow WILL become streaky and splotchy. Use several thin layers.
Step 4: Mix a 1:1 batch of Sunburst Yellow and Dheneb Stone and line the edges of the Yellow with it. You can also paint the edges of the black with Adeptus Battlegrey.
Step 5: Paint pure Skull White over the last highlights. You now have some great looking chevrons!
I hope this tutorial helps you guys out, this is just the first of many tutorials I hope to throw up on the site! For some extra bonus, here's what the Chevrons (And the base as a whole) all finished up:
