A Beil Tan supplement would be amazing I actual plan on modeling my 1850 pt Menaan army aspect and transport heavy like the green puriest, but I have been super tempted to get some storm guardians. I regards to your trouble painting black lines try painting them ulthuan grey, then wash heavy with nulin oil to get the black in the armour recesses, put another coat of ulthuan grey on the plates and use white scar for highlights. Honestly these new washes are amazing! I do something similar for my war walkers which are almost done and I shall post pics soon currently on walker 3/3. Man I really like the idea of your articles looking at fluff for specific craftworld warhost it would be interesting look at less known ones like Altansar, Yme-loc, and il-kaithe and see what we come up with.
Hm, not a bad idea, How to Play Minor Craftworlds could be done... Will think about it (I really like Il'Kaithe and Yme-Loc, but I guess there's not much to be written about these craftworlds, not enough material for articles for every single one of them - although Il'Kaithe has great story written in the old fan-made Macharian Crusade supplement, with even few unique units). Right now, I can't even find the time to finish the part of this article regarding possible rosters
As for the painting - no, the new black wash is absolutely terrible for my painting
I used to paint my space elfs with Chaos Black, give them heavy highlight with Codex Grey, wash with... eh... Badab Black, I guess it was. After that, more subtle highlight with Codex Grey, another wash and final highlight with Codex Grey. When GW discontinued the old paints, I had to rethink the proces, as I can't replace my Codex Grey pot, which is slowly but steady disappearing. So I started with more advanced (but also more time consuming) path and I mix the paints, adding layers of Black-Black-Grey, Black-Grey, Black-Grey-Grey and Grey. But still, it's inevitable that one day my Codex Grey will dry out and after that, I am f*cked - there's not a proper equivalent for this paint in the new GW line
