Tinbitz. Crap Loads of shading upwards, then washing and highlighting. lots of it. lots and lots.
There is no easy way to this. My guess is that he have used a lots of different colors, (or he have mix it the way he want it).
Any way I guess he have a whit coat, then he have some sort of light brown color over it. After that my guess is that he have used a few layers whit wash, darker and darker. To get that dark brown look. Then highlights, he probably also have used some metal color, not sure witch one maybe bronze or something like that. Im not sure that he have used gold, looks more like he have made a combination of NMM and metal colors. There is silver on the edges I guess. Any way its not just a fast and simple way to do this if you ask me.
Anyway this is what I shod do, I dont know really what technique this guy have used, there are many different way to go.
And I guess there is 50 painting hours or something on this model.
thats a good tip
He used a lot of washes. I painted a LotR Sauron pretty much the same way (except I could never do a face that well), and it was more of a silver than a gold.
EDIT: Exactly like this: http://us.games-workshop.com/games/l...ron/sauron.htm
First thing to keep in mind is - this is the large Abbadon figure from Forgeworld. When painting larger figures such as this your techniques will be quite a bit different than when painting the 30mm versions. Details will be much easier to do on larger models so the overall paintjob will usually pop out that much more. That said - this is an excellently painted model.
I remember seeing a step by step tutorial for a version of the Abbadon forge world model - I think it was on Cool mini or not. I would not be able to say if this is that model or not.

I do not think that even he could achieve the same result again... Such pieces are one-of-a-kind, always...
You have to realize that this isnt a model it is a sculpture. It isn't one inch tall. So that changest things drasticly, so when you paint it it will have a very different look. Basically lotts and lots of layers with washes added in between and you have to mix paints and what not. so You really just have to go for it and chage things as you go just make sure that your paint is thin so it dosent look bad once finishd
