Well, I would start dissassembled with a white primer and I'd put the torso's and the legs together then carefully paint all of the brown area's with a very thin coat of scorched brown, basicly that settles into the crevices. Let that dry then use a thin coat of graveyard earth over the scorched brown being careful not to get too much into the recesses. Paint the flex joints of the armor black. then drybrush with either fortress grey or boltgun metal. Use a detail brush to carefully outline the joints of all the armor. For the shoulder pads i'd first paint the field of the pad then the rim. Assemble the arms to the body carfully lining up the arms to hold hte bolter. paint the accessories backpack and botler and glue into place. paint the final details and touch up any spots created by the glue. walla your done.
A black undercoat is going to require lighter coats at each higher layer to preserve shading, and you won't have to worry so much about getting the deeper colors into the recesses. However, with the overall shade of the model, it's a good bet that it was painted over white.
Black undercoat is a must. When you paint the amour plates make sure you leave the black showing in the gaps between the plates. The shoulder pads i think are bleached bone.
DOWN WITH THE FALSE EMPEROR!!!MAY HIS GALAXY BURN!!!
WEll I would start off with a black primer. Then undercoat everything with the snakebite leather or a darker brown. Two coats might be required depending on watery your paints are. Then for the high lights use a lighter chocolate brown. For the sholder pads I would use a sand colored paint which would also need 2 or more coats. Carfullt high light the eyes with your choice of color I would use green or red and then dirty the model up with dirty colored washes if you want to. And bamn instant space marine. Use boltgun and mithral to underpaint and high light the bolter if you want.
The armor looks like it has green mixed in. I would suggest mixing in camo green to your brown. for the shoulderpad it looks like bone.

Well, everyone seems to have given you the tips you need on what colours you need and told you to highlight etc, so to say all that again would be pointless.
However, if your just begining heres a helpful tip that I dont think has been mentioned yet, the most important thing you can do for getting a nice looking modle if your just starting is be to keep the paint job CLEAN. Seriously, if you just make sure you thin your paints down and keep the paint as neat as possible then it works ten times better than exprerimenting with highlights and all that.
But I have no clue as to where your painting experiance is so if you are kinda new to painting i hope that helped, if not, sorry for being a patronising ass .
As for the model. I think ill do black under coat.
Then scorched brown. Im unsure about what do to next, it will probabaly next a lighter colour after that, what would you guys reccomend. And what colur for highlights.
And for the shoulders, Black, scorched, sanke bite?, then dessert yellow.
How does that sound?
