For the rangers I wanted muted, dirty colors - like the good old rangers of elves and Middle Earth. Hence I wanted to loose the shiny bronze armour of the vanguard and the reds of others, these guys aren't meant to be seen imposing on the battlefield. So I decided to try out something new, worked pretty well I think.
Base color is a 2:1 mix of VMC leather brown and VMA olive drab.
Next is a medium heavy drybrush of leadbelcher from GW.
A wash of GW Nuln Oil
Then a wash of GW Agrax Earthshade folowed by a wery light drybrush of GW leadbealcher
