Okay, I am no painting guru, but would you try making a wash from the color you are using on the base, and paint it into the recesses on the armour, like the corners on the shoulder pads, and the trims on the lower legs, places where wind blown dust/sand would gather, then some very fine drybrushing or multiple layers of wash on feet and mid shin to dust them up a bit. In my opinion keep the weathering light, desert dust tends to build up just in nooks and crannies on moving object.

Edit: have a bit of rep for some tastey painting!
