I'm working on my Bret Army and I have half my horses in black, the other in white (I'm doing a broad range of colours) and have my basecoat down for my black models. Tomorrow will be the white models, and after that I want to get a base down for my leathers so what series of colours should I go for to get a nice brown leather?

Scorched than Bestial. After that wash it with VMC Smoke. Simple and effective.
Something I've been liking recently is:
50/50 Scorched/Khemri Brown
Thin Devlan Mud wash
Pretty much a similar technique to frozencore tbh, but this will give you a cooler finish, as opposed to a warmer one.

Well, I was looking at a tutorial video ;
How to paint warhammer 40k ork leather | Wonder How To
Then I realised they spoke throughout and it was 20 minutes long. Maybe it'd be of some use to you however.
ps - The video is pretty dire but their talkingis quite funny.
I base it using black then paint it a medium/dark brown. I then use a medium brown on select highlighted areas. I then use a tiny bit of black wash and hit any really resessed areas. I then add brown wash to the leather heavily and then clean the brush and soak up the wash from any peaks or high areas. I then wait to dry and drybrush a medium brown over it again.
You can do this with any brand of paints you like - I did it recently with cheap 89 cent bottles of paint from the local craft store and didnt see a difference from when i use GW paints.
