For my orky weapons I was wondering if it's better to dry brush boltgun metal over the chaos black over coat, or if it looks better fully highlighted
For better results...
Paint the Boltgun Metal over the black primer then make a pass over the Boltgun Metal with Black Ink and you finish with highlights using Chainmail...
Despite it sounds very difficult and time-taking you will see it is very easy and quick! :yes:
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I guess it sort of depends on the "look" you are going for with your orks.
I tend to paint on the boltgun on the choppas and anything with a "smooth" surface, go over it with a light drybrushing with chainmail, then weather it with "smoke" from Vallejo model color(or whatever specific line it comes from).
With the sluggas and anything with high detail and such, I "wetbrush" over it with boltgun(its drybrushing only, I use a little more liquid to make it hit the lower surfaces a bit more.) highlight with chainmail, then weather it.
After the weathering, I hit it again with a very light drybrush of the chainmail .
Hope this helps.

WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Hmm.. ork weapons shouldn't look so clean and silvery if you ask me.
What I do is drybrush over the black undercoat with Tin Bitz (be generous) and then an even lighter dry brush of Boltgun Metal over that, gives it a semi-rusted kind of look. Then depending on the wepaon I paint some scorch marks.
