Well having a look around and being an old space marine titan legions player (still actively playing). Game this friday 7,000 points. And always slipping in and out of painting this may be a good way to keep me at the painting as so much left to complete!. My current army consists of all the bracnches of the Imperial army (Marines/gaurd/tech gaurd) also recently some Squats although i do use a simple plain paint scheme except i do try on larger peices.

What I currently have painted (33,200 points worth) plus can see whats left to do (i made it a tidy pile) http://s1206.photobucket.com/albums/bb443/DNME2000/

The big quandry is do i expand my squats as they did very well in my last battle.
Build several more imperial gaurd companies (the idea of 10-12 tactical/beastmen companies marching across the board :o )
build a small chaos army
I usually do field imperial gaurd with allies (marines/squats) or marines

I paint my troops a plain colour then part to distinguish detachment, nice plain and simple. My mate paints even the belt buckles!! on his troops. Although the bigger items like my imperitor titan i did make an effort, but you can see difference between my first painted ones from about 15yrs ago to nowadays lol my warlord titan here was my very first titan i painted 16yrs ago i think, the reaver was about 2 years later and my imperator was last year.

Completed my first squat land train although bit iffy about colours. Next one going to be blazing orange with blue trim i think. And not going to use airfix paint as a base (1st and last time) Acrylic just doesn't cover.

To keep a nice clean yellow, try painting it into the recesses. Otherwise, slap it liberally, and allow it to settle in. I find Gryphonne Sepia to be the best for shading yellows. You could also try washing the entire model, then drybrusing with the base color.

Basically experiment to find what works for you.
