whats the best way of painting a Black orc's skin ?, I currently use Dark angel's green
is they any better than that ?
I use Dark Angels Green, Highlight slightly with a mix of snotling green, then with a minor wash or black ink/water. Seems to work, leaves them significantly darker than my regular orcs.

cool , what do you use on your normal orks, I just use goblin green
For the Black Orcs I painted for a friend, I used Dark Angels Green mixed with Chaos Black. Radical, I know, but it makes a good -dark- starter. I then take DA Green and mix that with Catachan Green, that makes a good highlight. That seems to work well for my Black Orcs.
For my regular Orcs I start with the second mixture, DA Green and Catachan. It does Orcs good.
cool I probally should do my orks darker than goblin green, since that I paint my goblins that way as well of either mix some sunburst yellow into goblin green for goblins
Not to bum your yellow style, but -I- don't see goblins as 'bright' creatures. They're the dregs of Orc society, very dirty creatures. They're probably full of dirt, blood, and other $h!t that they got thrown/beaten/pushed into. So, I don't see them really have 'highlights'. They're more like 'bloodlights'.
I'm not saying you should paint them like that, I'm just trying to say how -I- would paint my gobbos. But, since I never will. I'd love to see someone else field goblins painted like that.

yeah that kind of makes sense, off that one I went off what I was told at GW
But I think your idea sounds much better
For my Orcs, I use a basecoat of DA green, with gobbo green drybrushed on. Gives a slightly dirty feel to them. Same for gobbos, but I leave more DA showing, for an even more dirty feel.
I was comptemplating Bestil Brown and Scab or Blood Red for Blood and dirt and then do a rough coat of goblin green
Are you familiar with the 'splatter' technique? That would look -very- good for Orc and Goblin blood/mud.
