A pic or two might help so we can see the extent of the paintjob so far.

In the interim, I'd start with the weapons. A bit of scorching around the barrel half of the heat weapons (flamers etc) and some blackening around the tips of the barrels of the basic weapons.

A good place to start with the model itself is the feet, then work your way up, use the same colouring as the bases when adding a bit of dirt around the feet and legs.
Add some dinks and the odd dent or two on the toes, scalpels are good for adding small scarring on the armour (looks like bullets have grazed them). Don't go to deep with the scalpel though.

you could always try using the Forgeworld weathering powders.

http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Modelling-Supplies
Guide on how to use the powders, http://www.forgeworld.co.uk/Download...ng-powders.pdf

but you can always just paint bolgun metal onto selected areas and give it a badab black wash to show chipped paint etc.

Was it something like this you had in mind?


hope to be some help, SoI

Here is the easiest way in the world.

Paint them like normal all clean and tidy fresh off the ship then varnish them. Take some oil based paint from an art shop browns and blacks maybe a little orange. And put tiny little dots near rivets panels in the armour ect. Now take a brush dip it in white spirit and run it over the dots of oil paint this will smwar leaving a worn out in the weather and rain look.

With chipping its too easy to go OTT on it. Plus their armour wouldn't be silver underneath the paint.
