Here is the Games Workshop Baneblade kit (not the Forge World Baneblade kit which I don't think is for sale anymore) ready for painting.
Then I sprayed the entire model dark green.
Then, after it was dry, I drybrushed the entire tank with catachan green. Note that the painter's tape is still on the model.
Then, after the model was dry, I remobed all of the painter's tape. As you can see, the taping has allowed me a very effective 2 tone camo scheme. The tracks are also ready to drybrush gray or silver.
Here's the Baneblade next to a Destroyer Tank Hunter I painted in a similar way.

I love the Yarrick model. He brings a bit of badass to an army that doesn't have a lot of individual character as the Imperial Guard really on massive amounts of infantry and tanks.
I primed this model white so I could keep his carapace armor bright and in contrast to all the black and red of this model.
Step 1: Paint his commissar robes black.
Step 2: Paint his power klaw, hat and sash mechrite red foundation paint.
Step 3: Paint his tassels and other details iyanden darksun foundation paint. There are also some details I painted Calthan Brown (my favorite brown).
Step 4: Add some Devlan Mud Wash.
Step 4: Paint the Base Grey with a brown edge. I painted the skull on his sash white. I also painted the power tube grey on his power klaw.
Step 5: More towards being done.
