The Green's functions of QCD encode the properties of hadrons, with the appearance of (colour singlet) poles in n-point functions corresponding to bound-states and resonances. There are several techniques by which such information may be extracted, including lattice QCD and functional methods. We discuss recent progress in applying nPI effective action techniques to the systematic truncation of Dyson-Schwinger and Bethe-Salpeter equations, with particular emphasis on the spectrum of mesons and baryons.
