Dark Angels Paint Recipe

Dark Angels Assault Intercessors

For my Dark Angels, I primarily follow the stock GW paint job.  However, I substituted enough third party paint colors that I felt it was worth capturing the full recipe here to be sure I am consistent with the army as I paint other components over time. 

UPDATE: I am transitioning to Pro Acryl colors, so I now list those as an option where used.
