This guide is for helping out the budding ork/o&g players who need a bit of relief in their army from the normal tin bitz --> boltgun metal --> mithril silver metal.
Frist off, basecoat black (obviously)
Next, give it a medium drybrush of dwarf bronze.
If you want clean brass, stop here and give a highlight of shining gold+dwarf bronze.
If you want your brass to be tarnished, continue.
Give a medium drybrush of scaly green. Don't be too thorough.
Next, dot a few areas (very small) that have scaly green over them with boltgun metal (for a calcium buildup look), and then another light drybrush of dwarf bronze.
Apply any tranfers if you wish, and give them a dusting of dwarf bronze (ork paintings on a shoulderpad won't last long)
The finished miniature
It has many blood splatters, but that is another guide for another time...
And now for another example (done much better here)
note the visor, to the left, there is the boltgun dot technique
Hope this helps!
I wish the pictures were of a higher quality but nice tut regardless
Hmm, this makes me want to go back to my O&G army from when i first started painting. Back then i just chucked a load of Chainmail onto the model and that was it.
Good guide and nice looking models.
I do like the tarnish - I think the green could go even more pronounced and still work well. I second the need for clearer pics - but nice job indeed. Great alternative from all silver or tin bits!

Im not exactly the best photographer ever, so..., the tarnish is actually a lot more pronounced in real life (the mask, though, is pretty realistic in the photo). and yes, the third pic is rubbish, not like I can go back now
