I first paint the skin dark angels green, then dry brush over that goblin green. but remember, the you useualy want quantaty over quality with orks(theres so many of them), so you might just want to do a single coat of goblin green.

I start with goblin green and then a green inkwash over it.
it ins't much but it looks good (try highlighting it after the wash)

Nice model, I have an unpainted one and I would like him to look old, how do I do that?
Depends on how you want to represent an older orc. One possible method is to darken all the greens you use (a tiny bit of a deep red can do this quite well), the other possibility would be to add a color like Bleached Bone to your greens to represent a little fading, and give a final highlight of BB. These suggestions are, of course, both relative to the green progression you use on the normal figs in the army.
I was thinking of goblin green, then a drybrush of bleached bone and then a lighter drybrush of goblin green....
As everyone knows orks get larger and a darker green colour the more powerful and older they get so what i usually do is the following
Warboss and Nobz: Dark Angels green base coat and a drybrush of Snot Green. The Nobz then get highlighted a little further with Goblin. I leave the warboss alone as he is the.............ahhhhhhhhh.........warboss.
Troops: Snot green under coat and drybrush of goblin green
Grots: Undercoat of goblin green, drybrush of camo green.
You can add extra highlights or inkwashes as you see fit for more important mini's
