I used The Bolter and Chainsword: Space Marine Painter to create a new color scheme for my new Chapter of SM. Now, after finalizing it told me it doesn't find any GW color that uses the green I used:

Aum... Is it DA green? I thought it is more of a Chaos Black and DA green 1:2 or something... Which green do you think it is?

Orkhide shade looks like it may be close, would be worth doing a test model of any colour you think is close, if you can spare the models, that is. If it's not OhS I'd suggest trying DA with a wash of badab black and/or devlan mud; if you do want to try both I suggest devlan mud first then badab.

Hope this helps.

It looks like green mixed with some grey. In fact, more like Catachan Green with some grey in it.

Edit: Did some fiddling around, here's what I've got:
For a basecoat, mix in 50/50 Dark Angels Green and Catachan Green, then add in some black in order darken it. For highlights, keep adding in Catachan Green and Bleached Bone.

You can of course try it out on models, and then strip the ones that didn't work out. That'd mean you don't need to worry too much about spare models.
